This Calls For Pictures




We don't get snow like this and in December, "not in a hundred years." Everybody is outside shoveling or playing 'cept me. I'm inside, warm. I did go to church today before we were dug out. I got picked up at the curb by my father who brought the snow blower for our obscenely long driveway...yes, we have thought of parking near the street before snowstorms but it's usually after the storm that we remember how good an idea that really is. I walked out in my church clothes donning two trash bags over my legs and made it to the waiting car with nary a flake! Well, except for the fact that I looked like one.


There's Sean sledding with friends on our neighbor's "hill". Stan snowblew (new word) his walks today as a thank you for letting our kids sled their yard for the last 12 years. And letting our kids cut through their yard and for calling us every time Stan leaves the lights on in his truck AND whenever he leaves our garage side door open AND a couple times when he's left his truck door open and went inside to eat or sleep... What is wrong with my husband, I do not know but having Cliff nearby does help. Hmmm. I wonder if Cliff owns binoculars...


This is what things look like inside.

Boys jumping off porches...





Ruby's friend Bernie came over to play. Two snow dogs, playing in the snow.

Ahhh...the glory of winter....for you. It has been raining cats and squirrels and we have muck everywhere. Noting like kids to make winter fun. We chopped a tree down yesterday and decorated it this morning. Charlie Brown would be proud.

It has been a glorious snow for boys. Snow days seem to bring out the best in people. Wonderful neighbors help us to dig out from the storm.

Looks like they had a blast! Wish it would snow here again...

Well, that's amazing! Our niece just returned from France. Her plane landed in WDC where she was stuck for 3 days. Poor baby. She missed the wedding. I think she's home now in sunny FL.

There's a rumor going around that another one of those ice storms is headed for the Heart of America. "It just isn't right, Mr. Potter!"
