It’s a Marshmallow World!Posted: March 8, 2008
Finally, a measurable snow! It started about six Friday night and ended mid-morning Saturday. I took a yardstick outside and measured it — three inches in some places, five in drifts.
It was definitely cozier to cuddle up inside where it was warm and look out the window at kids sledding and throwing snowballs and the Min Pin taking a walk in his yellow sweater.
Snow piled up on the tiny lantern in the flower garden beside the patio and on the SEE ROCK CITY birdhouse next to the back fence.
Snow drifted against the stones around the pond and covered them, like whipped cream … or melting marshallows.
Snow covered the turtle statue that sits on a rock beside the pond and kept the shape.
A typical Tennessee snowstorm — here, then gone. Most of it disappeared by three in the afternoon.
