Let It Snow

February Snow 6

Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

The forecast for Friday, February 4th was innocent enough. A few snow flurries early in the morning with accumulations from one half to one inch; High temperature 38 degrees. The forecasters missed just a little bit. In the Mena area snowfall totals ranged from 4 and a half to eight inches. We received a little more that five inches here at the house.

Shop Truck

My little shop truck had a hard time with the roads. I thought I wouldn't even be able to get out of my driveway, but after numerous attempts I finally made it. I went in to work, but didn't have a single customer all day. I took some photos of our old cars in the snow.

After finishing the job that I had inside my shop building I decided to take off early. I took my nieces playing in the snow. We had a great time but Brooke, the standard poodle that we are dogsitting, had the best time of all.

Just down the hill behind our house is Prairie Creek. We took our walk down to the creek and let Brooke run and play in the meadow by the creek. Prairie Creek is always beautiful, but there was a very special beauty with all of the snow.

I put a few video clips together to make a short movie of our snow day.


  1. Great photos and video. Nothing like a dog who enjoys snow. Our new Pomeranian really loves it.

  2. I enjoyed your photos, Richard. The creek really is a beautiful place. I also enjoyed the video and music.

    We did not have as much snow here, only about an inch, I think.

  3. It is beautiful but come on spring I am cold.
    looks like much fun in the snow.

  4. Your house is picture perfect and I loved that creek scene.
    Kids and dog sure had fun.
    We got 2.5 inches here but it has mostly melted all ready. Still it was beautiful for a while. Guess there is more to come.

  5. A beautiful home Rich. Very picturesque in the snow. That may be your (or my) Christmas card photo this year :)

  6. about the blizzard in the states. Stay warm, take care...
