Smells like snow

Snow is in the air.The first snow flake hasn't landed yet :)...but it's out there...I can smell it. I must say that I dread the snow, considering the fact that I live in the countryside and the snow plows reach us but very rarely.

And even if one snow plow might reach us, the neighbor from across the street sends them away because he says they ruin his fence by pushing the snow against it...So in winter, I'm in hell here..
Oh how I miss loving winter. I remember praying for snow, when I was a little girl, I would press my nose against the window and wait for hours in the hope of a first snowflake. Being a grown up sucks!
Aside from that I wanted to announce a hugeeeeeeeeeee giveaway that I plan for the next weeks, there will be lots of amazing bestselling books to win, all of them published by my amazing publishing house Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly. Stay tune.......Love you.

Aghhh - I hate snow. Not too sure I liked it when I was a kid either - cold-wet-slippery - Nah...No snow for me, than you very much!

hi!

Only once I saw the snow, I found charming. Many people do not like. I hate the intense heat. It is impossible to dress with elegance.

How nice to see you back again. I have missed you. And would love to see snow. It is hot, and getting hotter here and the snow images in the blogosphere are SUCH a relief.

We got hit today with about six inches of snow and very cold temps. But it's pretty with all the holiday decorations. I like snow up until Christmas and New Year's, and after that it is the enemy. :P

I grew up in the northeast and lived in Connecticut for 20 years before moving south. I don't miss snow except for Christmas. I was on the beach in a bathing suit today and I haven't begun to shop or decorate a tree. It's odd. Hope all is well pretty lady!

I have always known 4 seasons all my life, Winter is my least favorite but I do try to embrace it or I would never leave the house Petronela, lol :)

Great give away too ;)

Oh yes, I remember the childhood wishes of waiting for the snow and hoping it would stick, keep falling and keep me from having to go to school. :-)

Once, when I lived in Delaware, the snow was so deep (and I was about 6 years old) that it reached my shoulders. It was so much fun. The entire neighborhood came out to shovel snow out of driveways and off the sidewalk. They even did a path on the street to help people get out.

I don't know how long it took for a plow to come. Maybe your neighbor should move his fence back or something because he's not the only person on that road.

I also lived in upstate NY for seven years where winter began in September and galed with a devilish force.

I just love the snow time. I cannot wait for it to snow. With all of the previous years only getting a sprinkle here and there who knows what this year will bring?

Dear Petronela,

Ah the impending sense of snow, the smell of impending snow. I remember the last snow I smelt was um yellow and um never mind :)

I shall duly share your announcement, dear lady.

Hugs,

I always got excited to see snow when I was small! I still kind of excited to see snow because it might lead to office close and I don't have to go to work :-) Though too much snow is too much. I hope you enjoy winter even with snow though. Have a lovely weekend xoxo

Ooh! I remember those days. We usually got snow between October and November, and it stayed until April or May. I LOVED it. When we moved to upstate NY, it got above 60 for a total of one month, and that was just a little too extreme. We're making up for all of that now by living in the land of perpetual sunshine.

My children are hoping to get snow. So pretty for a few hours and then everything is so much more difficult! In the UK we don't get much snow though usually.
Have a nice weekend! XXX

Such lovely pictures .... I have actually begun to shiver, I so do dislike the snow and ice and all it entails. It has been quite mild here over the last few days but when you listen to the weather forecasts they tortuously remind us of all that will shortly be coming our way.

I suppose we must take heart because apparently the temperatures above the equator on the whole are more moderate (slightly higher) than those below the equator. For those of us who reside North of the equator this is at least something to remember.

I hope that you have a mesmerising and marvellous time over this Christmas period and may 2014 bring you everything that you wish for, Petronela. x

I like your blog. Could spend hours here. Have spent hours here.

I dread the snow too. It's cold and slippery, and it terrifies to get out and try to drive in it. I hope you get some warmer weather soon.
