Rita who need words with such a wonderful images of winter. Those images tell thousands words and the message is loud and clear. Such a majestic scene. The colorful color of White.

Have a nice day anyway.

Zue Murphy said...

Pak Idrus ... We managed to drive out yesterday and it was truly a winter wonderland. I didn't recognize a lot of pictures taken by friends at various places. LOL!

Happy Sunday!

Rita Ho said...

It was, Louis. Duvall has several instant ski resorts now. :) Is your area being pounded again? Getting heavier here and forecast to continue through Christmas.

Rita Ho said...

How much snow are you guys getting, Zue? Must be tons as I saw Gert saying on Facebook that she is hating the snow and rain. LOL!

Enjoy your holidays and wishing you all good things for 2009!

Rita Ho said...

So magical ya, Farina? I used to dream of being in scenes like that when young, nice reality now. :)

I've only been out twice, not easy to walk and troublesome to dress up in layers!

Have a lovely Christmas & Happy New Year.

Rita Ho said...

I'm glad to hear from you, Yati. I know you are busy and have lots to do given the circumstances.

David just explained to me that ABC here is "Already Been Chewed"! LOL! But no, I haven't made any. Hot tea and soup everyday!

You have a wonderful time too and wishing you everything nice and happy for 2009!

Rita,
In that cold any words you say will turn gibberish, so no neet to say a word. Just let the pictures speak about itself.
Merry Xmas and a happy new year to you and David.

Rita, the scene is beautiful! Over here not so much of snow but it comes with the rain too. Been like that for the past one week and its getting into me. Temperature is in the about 29 F. This morning is raining ice :( and now my car is frozen hard. Can't even scrape it off.

Hi Rita,

Wow...what a sight! Totally pure white. Absolutely beautiful that.

But I'm a person who has tasted snowfall a couple of times. Now I'd say nice to look at...he he.

I always liked the first day, but not the second & third...

Slosh slosh slosh...ha ha

Rita Ho said...

Zawi ... My teeth chatters each time I step outside to bring in firewood. Brrr!

Happy Holidays, and wishing you & your family all the very best for 2009!

Rita Ho said...

Hey Mush ... Warmest hugs back to you, B and Nora from our white winter wonderland. Lola is asleep now but I'm sure she'll happily sniff Gray's butt given half the chance. :)

Are you already in your new house??

Rita Ho said...

Gert ... The snow & cold is getting to some folks here as well, especially those who have to travel. SeaTac is in a perpetual mess! Another round of snow is in the forecast for tomorrow through Sat which may prevent us from driving south for the family dinner. Will see.

Merry Xmas!

Rita Ho said...

I agree with you, Ruby. Slush not here yet but the inconvenience and boredom of being snowed in is beginning to take its toll on folks here. I've practically given up on cleaning up after Lola and Grover after their trips outdoors. Just close one eye and mop up twice a day. LOL!

Enjoy your holidays and Happy Talk-Talk in the New Year!
