Snow in Leavenworth

Good afternoon from a beautiful, snow-covered Kansas.

We’ve had an interesting winter with temperatures in the 50’s on my birthday, a few days of howling winds that made us feel like we were in Canada, and lots of snow and frigid temperatures. I know what we term as “a lot of snow” is only relative. I think people in New England and Alaska might chuckle. Either way, we are thankful for moisture that the roughly 9.5 inches of snow brings!

This particular snow is very powdery, and the ice crystals sparkle and glitter. For those who are trusting in Jesus as their Savior, what a marvel it is that He has washed our sins whiter than snow.

Enjoy a winter day! Maybe grab a cup of hot chocolate, coffee, or tea.


Last night, the snow was so pretty as it fell.

  1. Yes, must be relative. To us, you don’t have a lot of snow….you have a “TON, GAZILLION, GOOGLEPLEX, MUCHISIMO” amount of snow (to borrow some of my kiddos’ vocab)! 🙂 We had a cold snap too this week…I thought I was going to freeze and wore 3 shirts and a sweater as well as leggings under my skirt yesterday….when I woke up, it was only 49! 😛
    We are glad we don’t have your hot weather.

  2. Wow! We’ve never seen snow like that!!! Maybe one day we will get to see what it is really like!
    Greetings from south Louisiana where it is 50 degrees today! (Which feels pretty cold to us! 🙂 )

  3. Being a Canadian living in the northern tip of Alaska I did find myself laughing, but cold is relative as is heat. Stay warm and enjoy the snow!
    Take Care.

  4. Those pictures of the snow glistening are so beautiful! Thank you for sharing them and truly we are washed like that. To us, down in Australia what you get is a lot of snow. We live in a place that on the odd winter will get a touch of snow, but nothing like you have posted. In my mind at least, it is refreshing to have a cup of tea after a morning of schooling no matter what the weather is like outside!

  5. As much as the snow “hurts” my body physically. I love the beauty of it, seeing it fall I often stare out the window in amazement. I love the whiteness of it and the clean landscape it provides. Such a wonderment!!

  6. Such lovely photos of your snow – – thank you for sharing! 🙂 Our snow last week in the Atlanta area was also pretty–even though the weather caused many troubles for lots of people. But I did enjoy looking out across my backyard when the sun made the snow sparkle–a pretty sight! And I was extra-thankful to have a warm home and plenty of food. Sometimes certain weather conditions help us remember to count our blessings. 🙂

  7. The snow looks beautiful! Send some my way to Florida!
    Sorry, I’m not a very good throw. 🙁

  8. YAY! We have snow in Texas! Nothing like what you all have but we’ll take what we can get. Beautiful pics you have.


  9. It is beautiful! We just missed the latest big snowstorm, as we here in Maryland are just south of where the snow tends to hit. Lots of ice, though, and it is beautiful when it sparkles.

  10. AWESOME pictures. And while we can’t share that snow with you (just doesn’t happen in FL) . . . we can rejoice that like you our sins have been washed whiter than that beautiful snow. What a beautiful picture for us THE WORD paints. You captured it beautifully. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

  11. Looks beautiful! Here in Canada, that would be just a bit more than a dusting, but I bet it wreaked havoc in your area!
    Instead of all drivers being overwhelmed, at least it is the minority. However, it seems like that is usually the one in front of you. 🙂

  12. What a wonderful blessing! We have a chance of a inch or two here is Tennessee. I love the beauty of snow. It makes everything look so clean. Building a snowman is fun also :)!. Thank you so much for this post. God bless you all!

  13. Hmmm, so that’s where all our snow went! (chuckle)
    Greetings from a slightly bare spot in Canada!
    In time there will be more coming your way. 🙂

  14. Oh, it’s lovely. So pretty. I really like the first picture. But the morning sun glistening on it is just as pretty.
    We have snow too! It’s pretty.
