A Fun, Festive and Frigid Day


At 6:20 this morning Winter returned with a Blast!
WE had thunder, lighting, wind and 12" of snow. THEN we had freezing rain, more snow at 5:00 with one more band coming through as I type this.

At 9:00 the snow began to fall and accumulate on everything.

At 9:13, the wind picked up and the snow began to blow!!

In the afternoon we had a bit of a break in the action but it began again just before 5:00 p.m.

More snow blowing around.

Here is the deck almost 12 hours from
the first picture taken.

Mother Nature sure had a party here today! She successfully shutdown a major city and those cities surrounding it,  Everyone was encouraged to STAY home and most did but the news reported lots of problems on the roads and highways. Ken was home and they
called school last night, There will not be school tomorrow and Ken is wating to see if the county will open tomorrow. What a day!
Chili in the crockpot, cookies were made and cornbread too. Now we will snuggle in for the night and see what tomorrow brings.


~Keep on Dreaming~

  3. The snow is beautiful. We had rain this morning, but sunshine this afternoon. We already have some trees budding out.
    Stay warm and stay safe..

  4. As I type this Melinda, I am looking outside at snow falling rapidly and accumulating just as fast. I don't think we will see spring for quite a while! Stay safe and enjoy the snow. Thank you for the thank you card! I just received it in the mail yesterday and showed my students. They loved it and were very proud.

  5. Congrats on your 600th post. That's tenacity. We had a surprise snowstorm this week too, but probably only about half as much snowfall as what you got. Guess winter isn't over, drat.

  6. Happy 600 and wishes for many more. Hope you are beginning to dig out. We still have some little patches of snow, but now it's days of cold rain. Not complaining! If the rain had been snow I'm not sure we would dig out until April.

  9. Congrats on your 600th post! That was some snowstorm, huh?!!! I think it was worse (driving wise) than yesterdays! At least, with yesterdays the plows could push it off and it wasn't blowing all around!

    School tomorrow, I'm certain! My kids need it!
