Hooray for Mother Nature!

Like a good chunk of the US, we were slammed with snow and ice overnight. Yeah us! I'm sitting here in my sweatpants and fuzzy fleece sweatshirt hanging out and working from home. There is just something about this time of year that makes me want to hide away in my house and not come out so I'm always looking for an excuse to stay home. We received the much anticipated auto-dialer call last night so Sarah could even sleep in for a bit. OK, "sleeping in " in this house means 6:30 - 7:00.

We actually didn't get nearly as much snow as they were calling (no surprise, we never do), but we got a boat-load of ice. Here is a picture of our deck table. You can see the thick layer of ice under a wee bit of snow. I am digging the icicles too. I also took a couple pictures of some of the trees in our back yard. I just liked how they looked. It makes the sad, droopy evergreen in the back neighbor's yard actually look pretty. I think snow makes everything look a lot prettier though. I'm sick that way!

Here is part of the big tree in our yard. The white, blobby streaks are big, fluffy snowflakes. Did I mention that I love snow? Snow rocks!

Oh, and dontcha love the grey sky? It is perpetually grey here for the duration of winter. This isn't just because we are in the midst of a snow storm.

  1. Oh, Rona, how I don't miss the snow.

    (BTW, it is warmer outside today than it is in my house. Grey skies here, too, though.)
