Those who read my blog noticed that I changed the header pic..it used to be similar to this one of our pine trees at the end of the drive...they welcome all who enter with a happy heart. I have photographed them in winter, spring and summer..fall doesn't count because they don't change color! But I think I jinxed us. Did you ever have a flu that hit you hard, unexpected? Really miserable? So sick you were afraid you wouldn't die? That was how I'd describe this snow storm that hit us last night. It had been really pleasant. The temps last week were in the upper 50's..even 60 one day. I could see my bulbs coming up! I was so giddy I put this header pic of our backyard from last July. Then out of nowhere, BAMB!!! We got slammed with 8in. of snow and ice that fell very fast and furious...but then this morning it was calm, quiet, and someone said even the sun shown for a bit. I wouldn't know because I was holed up in the surgery dept...no windows..The drive home was much more pleasant this afternoon and all that's left is a snow covered landscape, and memories of shoveling out and making donuts for everyone last night when we came in! Donuts make everything better..but the real dilemma...should I change the pic back to snow covered pines and take this curse away?
My chairs...the ones that I sit on with a book when the sun is shining..even on cold days! Poor babies!
Even though we've had a cold and icy winter, the amount of snow has been manageable, only accumulating 3 or 4in. at a time. But with the amount that hit us last night the new, never used this season snow blower got baptized...It works!
Even with a snow blower, shoveling is necessary.
Please don't hit me with the snow shovel...yes, I'm sick of it too, and yes I will always carry my camera and snap a pic when you least expect it..and remember I'm your Mamma...May this be the last of the snow pics...(can't promise though!)
