Waking Up To A Blanket Of White Stuff

January 30, 2018

Good morning.  What a surprise I got this morning.  It started snowing lightly yesterday afternoon, and just kept right on coming all through the night.  Thank goodness it was light.  Somewhere along the way, the snow started picking up speed, and now the flakes seem to be getting a bit bigger too. 

Here's two photos that I took through the windows out in the house.   Well, so much for me going out today.

I'd like to just say "Enough Already!!'  Gosh, in looking at the weather forecast for the next few days, it's depressing.  It says more snow for Friday and Sunday.  Aye yi yi!  Some folks are posting photos of the flowers in their gardens on their blogs and my little gardens are being buried beneath snow, snow and more snow.  Boo Hoo.

I'm hoping that maybe, just maybe, my flowers will bloom better and longer once they get started because they are not getting an early start this year.  I don't know, what do you think?  Hmm, I can hope.

Yesterday, Deanne came by and brought me a bouquet of gorgeous roses, and a storage kit for my crochet projects.  I'll take some photos later today to share with you.  She also brought me a twelve pack of Coke Life and a copy of the DVD of the "Fiddler On The Roof" show that we went to see last October at the Paris Cabaret.  We put the DVD into the player and watched the whole thing.  Nice, nice, nice!!

Right now, the mail truck is pulling up out front.  I need to get out on the porch and clear away some of the snow so that I can get the mail without stepping in the snow.  I keep a shovel out there for just that purpose. 

Hmmm, well, I cleared away the snow on the porch and got the mail.  A package for Helen and some bills for me.  Not fair, I say.  The bills could take a vacation every now and then.  I wouldn't complain a bit. 

Well now I think I'll finish my blog reading that I started earlier this morning.  Then I'll have to decide on what to make for tonight's supper.  I don't want to jinx the weather, but I do believe the snow is slowing down.  Do you think that maybe it will stop?  Gosh, I hope so.

I'm off now.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

You got a lot more snow than we did. We just got flurries that did not lay and that was fine with me. Snow puts nitrogen into the soil so hopefully your flowers will like that. Hope you have a good dinner tonight.
