I did get out and walk around and took a few pictures this morning before noon. It's always fun to do that. Last year when we had one of our snowfalls, my winter boots had blow outs and I had to order a new pair and they got tied up in a snow bank somewhere before they finally made it to me. I can report to y'all, they work really well!!! I had fun in them today and took a few pictures. and wanted to share them with y'all. Enjoy!

Well, this is all the news that is the news from my neck of the woods. I hope and pray that where ever y'all are tonight that you are warm and safe. I am always reminded that while I may be safe and tucked away in the warmth of my home, that there are others that are not so fortunate.
Thinking about all the snow today got me to reminiscing about the days of yore! hahaha Makes me sound ancient, doesn't it. It actually was quite a few years ago. Where did the time go? Oh well, the year I was the sophomore and my brother was a senior, it snowed a blizzard just before we was to go back to school from the Christmas break. It was the perfect storm, so to speak, for snow. It was a snow that packed really well. It was wet and heavy. I got out and built a snowman that was as tall as I am. It was really heavy for me to get it stacked, but I managed to do it all by myself. I was so proud of my snowman!!!!! He had everything that made him special. A hat, a scarf, stick arms, a coal face and a carrot nose and coal for buttons down his belly. He was quite the snowman. I admired my snowman and watched him every day, for sooooo long!!!! School was actually out for quite a bit of time. But, the weather got better and we got back to school. Every day the sun would shine and my snowman would refreeze at night. No significant melting took place for weeks and weeks. It finally turned into an ice cube snowman. January ended, February came and went, March came and went and my snowman was still standing tall and strong. April came and he started melting bit by bit. He started getting skinny, but he was still holding his own. One day my brother and I got off the school bus and he tossed his books to the ground and went running toward my snowman and done a kung-fu kick in the air and destroyed my snowman!!!!! Boy was I mad!!!!! I was so hot under the collar, I just couldn't believe he had done such a thing!!! How could he!!!!! I wanted to see just how long he would last, but nooooo, he had to destroy my snowman!!!! Sounds kinda like I still hold a little grudge doesn't it. hahaha Well, I do, just a little. hahaha Not really. I just thought about that after he texted today and I laughed about it. So I thought I would share it with y'all.
I hope and pray that every one has a blessed, warm and safe night. I know they are calling for really bad weather along eastern and north eastern area of the US. Parts of the area are already without electricity. I pray for safety for all of those people and for the people that will be out in this weather trying to fix what the ice and snow has torn down. Take care every one.
Stay safe Ladybug!!! Sweetpea loves you and is sending warm thoughts your way and still counting the days! Yay!!!!
Thanks for stopping in this evening y'all. Just remember, God loves y'all and so do I! hugs, Patty
