Close Shot Friday 040

This was early in the day on Wednesday when we were under a snowfall warning. Imagine my Big Air Quotes around snowfall warning. Most of the day was spent shoveling, snow-blowing, making snow angels, clicking pics, eating soup, changing gloves and caps, and making up words.

Words like ~

snowvalanche, snownami, snowicane, Golden Snowtriever, snowsoon

I had to tug three pairs of wool socks on my feet and stuff them into my tall, rubber garden boots, and still snow got inside.

If you got close enough, with each shovel you could hear me belt out — Who you gonna call? Snowbusters!

That’s how I roll in a snowicane snowfall warning.

Those of you who had the nerve on Wednesday to put up pics on Instagram of your bikini-clad selves on a beach in Brazil, or your manly flip-flop-clad feet soaking up the sand and sun and fun in Puerto Rico… well, we can’t be friends anymore.

Just kidding.


My very pale skin can’t go to the beach anyway. Not without SPF 100, a shawl, a giant beach towel, and the mother of all umbrellas.

It’s a real beach thrill kill.

I’ll just kick back here in the land of snownami.

TGIF, baby. You know what to do. Meet you in the bar in 3…2…1…

  1. I was laughing at all the names for the snow. We just had a dusting of powdery stuff. Here in Texas, it closed down a few school districts because the buses couldn’t get through the neighborhoods. It didn’t close our schools though. For us, it’s been bitterly cold and our furnace wants to quit. I don’t blame it. I’m kinda done with winter, too. Stay warm!!


  2. Great shot! And a hilarious post . . .

    “Snowdal wave”? Oh no! Your jokes are almost as bad as mine!

    Well, no: that’s going too far . . .
