As Seen On TV

Looking west from the deck-

I woke early this morning and checked the local news to see if we might get a little more than the light dusting of snow we received overnight.

Our local TV show, "Good Day Sacramento," was asking for emailed pictures, calling it "Show Us Your Snow," as this lower level elevation snow is not common.

I trudged outside and took a few photos, and ended up emailing the picture shown above.

By the time my husband awoke and was drinking his first cup of coffee, I told him to turn around to the TV, and asked if the onscreen photo looked familiar. It was my submitted photograph!

It's snowing again, so I hope to go back out for more pictures shortly.

I'm thinking I ought to change out of my thermal pajamas and slippers first...

How cool! Well I mean how FREEZING!!! But how cool about your picture being on tv. That must have surprised Mr. SierraBella, huh? :-)

Hope you don't have to go anywhere and can just sit back, stay warm and enjoy the snow.

Mt. Diablo has some snow but nothing in our backyward, of course.

Hi SoozieQ!
Heck, seeing my picture on TV surprised me!
I'd heard the weather prediction, so I stocked up the other day.
It's still snowing, but melting right away... darn!

How neat that your picture was on TV! We have our third snow of the year right now. We haven't had a good snow in three years, and now it's making up for it. It's just a few inches, but around here that's a lot.

Welcome back to Blogland! I hope it has been a successful 'away' time!

I love the picture - if it wasn't so serenely cold, I'd use it on my Desktop. It's just gorgeous!

Kat!
The U.S. weather really is strange this winter!
We're in the same boat. Normally, just a few inches of snow is a lot for us.
Hope your children are enjoying!

We had snow again yesterday, it's so weird. Nearing 70 all week then BOOM, winter wonderland all weekend.

Indiaiynke-
Sorry my last comment yesterday was written before yours downloaded!
Thanks for the compliment. I know you're probably sick of snow by now. We have about 6 inches this morning, and it's still snowing.

Romani Heart-
Sounds like we're having the same weather!
I was weeding my bulb garden just days ago, wearing shorts...

I haven't seen snow for ages.

That pic has a grenish-blue shade, is it natural or did you edit it ?

jac-
No, I didn't edit the photo... didn't even crop it!

Then it so beautiful. Compliments of the day.

Hi back! Sometimes I don't think I knop anything about card either, but I do know about snow. I grew up in Chicago and seeing that picture of the snow really makes me miss the winters. Beautiful shot!

jac-
Thank you so much, I truly appreciate the compliment!

BTD-
Welcome!
Playing cards, I'm the type to show my hand and ask "Is this good?" Not really!
Being from Chicago, you likely don't miss the snow too much!
Thanks for stopping by!

Defiant Goddess-
Thanks!

Rae Ann-
I was pretty amazed to see it on the TV screen.

those pics are beautiful! but I'll take the heat - it's been pretty chilly around here lately...

how's the quitting smoking coming along?

cheesecakey-
We're hoping for more snow!

The quitting smoking is going better than predicted. I'm finding this method of cutting back by increments of time works well for us.

That is a fantastic picture. No wonder they put it on TV. I thought I'd checked your blog more recently than this post. Cache problem?

Glad to see you around.

So pretty -- no wonder they chose your photo!! Curl up by the fireplace and read a good book for me, 'kay?

You don't want a comment on the new post ?

squirl-
Thanks!
I don't think I'm having any problems... other than not blogging much lately!

eclectic-
The temperature is up to 50 degrees now, so I'd best continue my weeding project.
I do have a book ready, just in case we get more snow soon.

jac-
No, I figured the photo update wasn't a real posting, so didn't need comments.

I would appreciate it if you all keep that snow west of Colorado . . . Well I would like that anyway. Great picture, so cool that it was on TV.

Blogger SierraBella said...

Nina-
I wish I could steal some of your snow- but I doubt many of my neighbors would like that!
It was strange seeing both my real name and picture on TV. As long as it wasn't on "Cops," I'm happy!

That is so cool - I am so jealous! I love the grandeur of your porch :D.

Teh Chia-
Thanks!
Although we have some fairly level property, most of it is sloped. The deck adds more usable space, and (so far) keeps the deer out of my potted plants!

Just dropped in to say hi. Hope you're doing well. Miss you, but you need to take care of yourself and do your thing. :-)

Blogger SierraBella said...

Hi Squirl!
We've been having some major snow (for us, anyways!) A couple of feet in the last two days.
Doing well with the smoking slow-down, and will be posting again!

Blogger jac said...

Let me know your well being.

Worried that I dont hear anything about you.
Are you Ok ?

Hi Jac!
I'm fine, just not online much lately.
I need to schedule some time to blog and visit all my blogfriends!
Hope to do so soon.

SierraB, I'm missing you!! You've been gone a long time, which I hope means you've been successful in your quest to kick ciggies out of your life. But I guess I'm hoping you haven't kicked the rest of us out along with 'em! Just dropping by to say hey, and hope to see you 'round the bloggerhood.

Just stopping by to say hi again! Hope you're enjoying spring. :-)

Hi Eclectic and Squirl!
All is well here, just way busy.
Still working on the quitting. Should have bought stock in sunflower seeds before I began this.
Will be back, just not sure when. I'm sure I missed a 'hecka lot' of stuff!
Miss you guys too.

Just wanted to say "Hi" SierraBella. Don't mean to pester you or anything.

I hope all is well with you and Mr. SierraBella (and of course your kids and adorable Grandson!)

Take care,
