First DC Snow...Just in Time for SITSmas!

First DC Snow

Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening
By Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake

The woods are lovely, dark and deep
But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before I sleep
And miles to go before I sleep.

La Famila Scribe wishes you & yours
a Very Merry SITSmas & a festive, fun holiday season!

Editor's Note: Thanks to all y'all who contributed to Mrs. Scribe's fanTAbulous SITS Featured Blogger Day. Probably gonna take me mucho tiempo to respond to your dozens~dare I say hundreds?~of comments, but respond I will. And remember: I'm still available to cater your next cyber-affair! PS: The Superior Snap above captures only the beginning of last Saturday's snow. About 6 inches accumulated in our DC 'Burb...with more forecast on the way, today!

Is that your yard? Is that your snow???? I'm jealous! It's 32 degrees here, but the rain clouds went away, so no snow for us.

Dang.

Merry SITSmas!

That is a really cute photo! We had a bit of snow but it only served to make the sidewalks and streets festive...the kid wanted to play in it anyway.

Fingers crossed that we get more on day when I don't have to leave the house! Hee hee!

Merry SITSmas & happy (belated) SITS feature day!

I think it will soon be snowing here, in the Northwest, as well. It's definitely cold enough, we just need a bit more moisture. I love the snow but hate the cold & ice. I guess you can't please everyone :)

Hope you're have a great day!

I just became a member of SITS and I was so excited when I saw your blog featured! I majored in journalism and ran my college's yearbook. And in hopes of teaching journalism I went back to school to get a teaching degree.. but the closest program was English. Unfort. for me the program refused to help me pursue the journalism part of English studies and I dropped the pursuit right before my student teaching semester.

I can't wait to delve into your blog and see what you're doing with your students. I wish I could have finished the teaching degree.. but I have too many loans to pay back to pursue it any further. I will therefore be living vicariously through you :)

Pink & Green Mama said...

WE had a blast in the snow!! Expecting an ice storm tonight but the weather guy says it might just be rain now...am hoping it's just rain - snow is way cooler than ice.

Happy SITS day!! : )
Beautiful window -- I would sit there quite happily with my coffee and watercolors!

fondly,

Just spent some time hopping around your blog, as a fellow NoVa girl married to a UWMadison Badger Alum, we were amused that we had more snow than our Iowa, Colorado, and Wisconsin friends and family.

Am a product of the NoVa public school system (arlington) and taught (fairfax) for 5+ years. Small world bumping into you here in bloggy land!

Now feeling quite intimidated by what I've just written since you teach AP English, journalism, etc. I'm sure my abbreviated writing and complete lack of proper english/grammer must be nerve-wracking. Where's that red felt tip pen when you need it?!!

That is one of my favorite poems. (Even though I'm not a big fan of snow.)

I'm not in SITs so I'll wish you a (plain) merry Christmas!

Late to your SITS party, sorry.

Beautiful snowy day, I even like the snow flakes going across the computer screen too, nice touch! :)

What a superior snap. A gorgeous snowy view. The stained glass has never looked better !....I never get tired of the Frost poem

4gb carte memoire said...

So much has happened this year for myself and my family. And I have great hopes for next year. And resolutions. Like… getting my license, getting a job and getting my own car. Sounds childish doesn’t it? I shoulda had this all done a long time ago, right?
