Nice to Ice

Jimmy won't be reading in the hammock today! One of my husband's favorite pastimes is reading...and of course you know mine.

The picture of my husband in the hammock was, of course taken in the summer and the snowy picture I just took a few moments ago.

It's still snowing heavily...but it's not that cold out. The snow is a wet snow and perfect for making that snowman...or snowballs, for a snowball fight. Some of us may even hunt down that elusive sled and go in search of a good hill to slide down.

Some family members were planning trips for this weekend...and if they went...please drive carefully. We don't get many snows here anymore, so driving in snow always has to be re-learned by us.

It is 42 F degrees, snowing very heavily and accumilating rapidly.

I should have waited to take the picture for my post later today...but I get so excited when it snows...that I have to just get out in it and feel the snowflakes hitting my face.

We got no snow I think I should sell the snow-blower that way we will get a big snow. It missed us and I guess we were kind of disappointed. Mother kitty says it is sleeting outside.

Thanks for the Winter Wonderland makes me nostalgic for snow (I grew up in Prince George, in northern British Colombia. My Aussie parents were over there for a teacher exchange program, and stayed 12 years!)

If you do go toboganning, make sure to tell us about it!

Whoops, I meant British Columbia!

Thanks everyone for the nice comments...and Megan I love you too and Happy Valentine's Day to you.

Camellia, What did you think was clever? The picture comparisons?

Jelly, Does it ever snow in Australia or is it desert like? What's it like where you live?

Tomas, As soon as you sell the snowblower you will need it for sure. That's how it goes.

Anonymous, I know who you are!...I can tell by the 'love you.'
