Pillows

A few days ago when I opened the front door, the snow looked like this. Perfectly shaped into  pillows, or a beautiful comforter. This is the way it fell. And not just in our yard. There were pillows in fields, and everywhere else. How does such a thing happen?




Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting on silvery-toed slippers of snow,

And we, we were children once again.
-Bill Morgan Jr.
“When Jacob got up early the next morning, he took the rock that he had used for a pillow and stood it up for a place of worship. Then he poured olive oil on the rock to dedicate it to God…”
Genesis 28

it does look like a soft comforter, i have never seen it like this, it was always smooth. bob says he has though. love the quote. we saw on tv yesterday that getting in ice or snow, the whole body makes you lose weight. can we have a pic of you doing snow angels and a report on how much you lose?

I've seen this too--many year's ago. Could it be the wind?

Best,

It looks like a bunch of giant cotton balls spread out.

Very pretty - I haven't seen snow that that in years!

Very interesting snow formations, made by the wind? I've never seen this before. You should send your pics to the local TV weather channel and ask them why the snow looks like this.

Tamago said...

Wow, I wonder how it happened, too! I've never seen snow like that.
It actually looks like our matress :-)

I have seen this before some where but forget where. It is beautiful.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Cool! I don't remember seeing snow look like that before now. It does look like a mattress topper or something similar.

Shug said...

It looks like a mattress top...lol.
Fun to look at and sure makes for some great pictures!! Y'all stay warm and inside...

George said...

Fresh-fallen snow (as in your pictures) is absolutely beautiful. But I can do without it once it gets dirty and all tracked up.

Dee said...

Wow..that is interesting...what a treat for you to find and to share with us...

Ann Thompson said...

some of those pictures look like a mattress :) How interesting that it made such a perfect pattern.
It may look like a pillow but I would prefer a much warmer one to lay my head on

Ruth Hiebert said...

That is very interesting. It does look like a soft comforter.

Melanie said...

That is so pretty, Ginny! I also wonder how it happened like that.

LV said...

NEVER HAVE I SEEN SNOW LIKE THIS. GLAD YOU SHARED THESE GREAT SHOTS WITH US.

It does look so peaceful and nice; though my heart is ready for spring. xoxo Catherine

Ginny, The snow makes a gorgeous photo and it looks just like a pillow or mattress. We had snow/ice in GA this past week and were without power for 50 hours! Today is sunny and 50, thankfully. Mildred
