Birthday Snow

I always want a white birthday, though rarely get one.  Seems this time of year the snow only lingers around for a day or so, but not this time!  Although the sun had some melting power today, there's still plenty around (over a foot) for my birthday tomorrow!

Here's what the view from my bedroom deck looked like before the last storm...
We've got around fourteen inches now, and the weatherman just said we'll get another 6 inches between tomorrow night and Tuesday morning!
Actually there was another thing I wanted for my birthday...  a ticket for the theater.  If you follow my essay's blog, you know that my bf and I love to go to the theater.  She got us tickets to a great broadway show.  So the day of the show rolls around, and... yep!  More snow!  We wondered if they would cancel the show, since a large concert had even been canceled.  Even the malls were closing.  But you know what they say...  "The show must go on!"

I'm the designated driver whenever we go anywhere.  She doesn't like to drive on nice days.  I don't mind the snow, so off I went.

And they complain about teens texting while they drive...  Here I am taking pictures!  But, I wasn't looking at the screen.  I just held it and shot, hoping to get some good ones.  And I only picked it up where the roads were clear and there was no traffic.
The roads were terrific!  I guess everyone thought they'd be a mess because there was hardly anyone out that day!  It was like driving through my personal winter wonderland!  It sure put a smile on my face...

OK, don't laugh at my goofy sunglasses.  They do the job.  You should see the heavy-duty pair!

Middletown's main route!
We made it to the show with time to spare.  Turns out Cincinnati didn't have very much snow.  Can you guess what show we saw?
The actors took up a collection for Haiti.

Meanwhile, back on the farm...
I love the way the snow clunge to the fence!

Look how much snow is hanging on the rope in the background.

This is a view of our neighbors farmhouse from our driveway out by the road.

This bike path borders our property. 
That's our woods on the left.

The snow had molded to the gate and was now falling off.

The trees border the creek.
The house is in the background.
On the right, behind the trees, is the goat house.

Happy Birthday!

I'm glad you are getting your white birthday, a very white birthday. The snow is beautiful on the trees but it looks like your roads are fine.

Cats? I would love to see that show sometime.

Have a great Birthday/Valentine's Day!

You saw Cats! And I think you definitely had a white birthday, dear Lily! Happy Valentines Day to you, too.

Gorgeous. You and your bf are troopers. How was the show? It was probably extra special since you had a great adventure getting there. :D
