Good morning, Tina here.
I was thinking how fun it would be to have a White Christmas this year. It isn't common here in our Gold Country town, but it has happened. The way the storms keep coming lately, I think it could be possible so I am going to keep hoping...
I gathered together some images of local places in the snow.
Above, the top of the bell tower, with the trees on the right that were in the front yard of the O'Donnell house, and the lovely Presbyterian church steeple above them on the right.
The Nick Fox house received a mantle of white a few years back.
The lovely Gutenberger house looks frigid but still inviting in 2011.
Our old County Courthouse becomes a Christmas card with the addition of a lit tree and some snow.
One of the nicely decorated trees from the side of Highway 50 at the parking structure. (Okay, no snow on this one.)
Cleared of traffic and snow added, Main Street looks like a Thomas Kinkade painting.
Quail hunker down in a fluffy and icy bush.
And last, our view west from the front porch, after the heaviest snow we have had here in Kelsey, December 2009.
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas... how about you?
