My dad reads my blog faithfully…so, when he requested photos of our current weather, I had to comply…love you, Dad!
I love the snow…please don’t hate me…this winter has been a white, white wonderland so far…I am one of those really fortunate folks who has a snowplow guy for the driveway, but I still take care of the walks and deck myself. Something so soothing yet energizing about shoveling snow…call me crazy, call me sick…I really […]
Irises and chives Not that long from now, right? Right?
It was -8F when we got up yesterday morning, so today’s toasty 8F is…STILL COLD!!! After snowfalls of 1-1/2 feet and 8″ and another 12″ and more in the past couple of weeks, we are being “lightly dusted” this morning…I guess my morning exercise will be clearing the front steps and walkway of “light dust”.

[…]

The day after, the snow is still white (sometimes with green or blue undertones) and softly mounded. The day after, the sound of the plow scraping by, […]
