A Visit to Snowy Philadelphia

I took a time out from blogging for a visit with my son and daughter-in-law who live in Philadelphia.  We were fortunate to not get stranded at the airport yet we got to enjoy the snow covered area. 

The next day when the sun came out and the guys had shoveled the snow, I ventured out to the front sidewalk for this picture of our son and daughter-in-law's place.


Since the roads had been cleared we ventured out to shop at King of Prussia mall.


I loved the flowers on the backdrop of this store window.


Even though I don't have many occasions to dress formally anymore, it is always fun to check out what Jessica McClintock is creating.


The mall had an exhibit of Norman Rockwell figures.


I took this picture for my Mom because she loves to read and always has her nose stuck in a book.


Since the leaves have fallen, this is a good time to check out some of the houses and fences.

 
Photos with iphone in a moving car aren't the best pictures but it gives you an idea of the snow in the area.  I especially love the windows in some of these older homes.


The picket fence caught my eye.


Unless you had a blanket and heater there probably wouldn't be any rocking on that porch this day.


This picture was taken on our way to the airport to leave Philadelphia.  The old bridges are fascinating.
We had a good time and left just before the record snowfall began.
