Now this is not what you usually think of as material for Ruby Tuesday, but as I looked across the street the other morning, the first thing I saw in all the snow was the red door of our neighbors mail box! Cheery looking, sure the postman will have no trouble seeing it -- if he can get up the street at all. We've had a couple of days with no mail delivery! What was that they use to say about the postman????

Wow! Even the mail wasn't delivered! That's such a pretty photograph!

Lin said...

love the red mailbox-it certainly stands out. i have a reddish door and like its brightness and color.

I can't believe how much snow you have! That's not normal is it? It seems like every day lately I watch the weather on CNN, and they keep saying this storm is parked over the NW. I probably wouldn't have paid that much attention last year, but this year, now that I have blogging friends, I notice these things!! Hope you are warm and snuggy and happy, and don't have cabin fever too bad!

Sylvia K said...

No, this isn't normal! Last time they had anywhere near this much snow was thirty years ago! Adam has been good about getting me out to at least do a little grocery shopping when it was really bad. But then two days ago, it warmed up into the forties and we woke up to green lawns and no snow except a few piles from off the roof of the garage. I finally got to get out in my car, by myself! Today it is so windy and cold, I almost would rather have the snow and stillness. Ah, well we'll see what comes down over the next 24 hours!! Who knows?

Amazing photo Sylvia. That sure is a lot of snow and I bet the postman is thankful that it is red - at least that way he can find it.

June Saville said...

Why can snow look so beautiful when in reality it's often so mushy and dirty? And inconvenient!
I clicked on the shoe pic Sylvia and nothing happened. I'd love to know about Ruby Tuesday ...

Love all the snow on the very red mailbox.

They don't make postmen the way they used to. ;-)

Red is a great colour for a mailbox in snow. Happy New Year!

Ah, the ruby slippers! My oldest's signature. Her name is Ruth, but when her son was learning to talk he heard his dad call her Ruthie, and when he tried to say it, it came out Ruby. She's been Ruby ever since.

lol...neither rain nor SNOW!

That's a great photo, love it. Well, snow is great in a photo...not so much in real life ;)

mom/caryn said...

Our post mistress won't deliver anything she has to get out of her car for. I mean... she won't even open her door and lean out.

Lots of snow there, girl. It's like that at my children's homes. They must have between three and four feet already, this early in the season. That's not a good sign for what waits ahead as winter continues to try and win us over with her beauty. The problem with her beauty is that it doesn't last any longer than any other make-up job.

I do have to laugh... (I guess that's kind of mean...hmmm) My son and son-in-law will spend an hour clearing their driveway. Then along comes the city snowplow and scrapes a massive pile of dirty, hard, crusty ice at the end of it. Not really funny, I know. I only laugh because we don't have to live with that situation any more. We have an angel neighbor with a snow removal business who keeps us clear. Is that being smug? Egads! I may miss "Mother of the Year" once again.

Melli said...

Suuure! That would have been MY first thought! That mailbox is a doozy!

ellen b said...

What a great shot! So what part of our lovely Washington do you live in. I'm at my home here in Western Washington for our Christmas visit but then I'll have to go back to Southern California where my husband is working right now this next Sunday. We've really been socked in with this snow!! I was so happy to be able to drive by myself today and go to the grocery store :0) happy New Year!

Sylvia K said...

Hi Ellen, thanks for stopping by. I live in Seattle -- Ballard to be exact. It was wonderful to be able to drive myself to the store yesterday -- I do hate having to depend on someone -- even my son, to take me to run errands. It's hard to believe we ever had any snow at all!

Pagan Sphinx said...

Sylvia,
That's perfect! Sky and snow; the best with red!

Happy RT!

SandyCarlson said...

Beautiful yet chilly! Makes me glad I'm inside and warm.

Ralph said...

It is the perfect red - set against the beautiful fluffy snow. The only drawback is that you didn't get mail for a few days. That could be a blessing with the ususal junk and bills! Happy Northwest Snows!

MumbaiiteAnu said...

Wow, that's a lot of snow, but it must really be difficult to get around.
A great photo here, the mailbox does stand out in the snow.

Kostas said...

Great post!
I wish you for New Year 2009 it gives peace, health, chance and happiness!

Robin said...

It's unbelievable how much snow Seattle's gotten. My friend has lived in W. Seattle for twenty years and she doesn't ever remember a winter like this one!

Great RT capture - that red really stands out against the stark white of the snow.

Happy new year, and stay warm!

Margie's Musings said...

I hope your snow is gone soon. I do not like snow and luckily, thus far this year, we have only had one.

Dianne said...

definitely not ruby slipper weather!

great photo

That red box would be hard to miss - that bright red against all that white snow. Love it!

laura said...

I like the contrast of the red mailbox against the white snow.

What a kewl 'find' for Ruby Tuesday!!! I don't think I've ever seen a red mailbox and the snow makes this one picture perfect.
Hugs and blessings,
