Snow!

I woke up this morning, and looked out the window to find our neighbor's roof, the deck, the lawn chairs and table, the grass, and pretty much everything covered in a dusting of powdery, sugary white... snow! :) Can you guess what I did? Grabbed my camera and ran out the door of course! While I was snapping away, I managed to capture these...

I am in love with the background in the above photo! Reminds me of Christmas cards...

...and then the most unfortunate thing happened. My camera battery died. It took about three times of moving the on/off switch back and forth to convince me that it was indeed, dead. I so hate when this happens to me! Mainly because it dies when I most need it. My camera battery does not like me. I keep telling myself I need to buy myself another one but I never really get around to doing it. Perhaps I'll just put it on my Christmas wishlist...
Anyways, an hour later, with my battery only half charged, I headed out again. The snow was melting so rapidly, it would've probably been all gone if I'd waited for it to fully charge. I did manage to capture the beauty of that last bit of freshly fallen snow though. Here's some of the photos I took...
