Snow ... oh no.

in life •  22 days ago

The snow continues as does the cold wind. The temperature is below zero for some time now and if the wind whips up all the colder. We have lived here for 4 years and this is a first for us. My husband grew up in this type of weather being not too far from Chicago.

For my family a quarter of an inch of snow every 6 years and everything closed when that day happened.

So exciting in fact one year living in the south it snowed the first time in years.

I was so excited upon entering his house I told a friend he was never believe what was happening. I guess there was a lot of conviction in my voice because he thought Jesus had returned. Folks, you can't make this stuff up.

He seemed terribly relieved when I told him it was snowing. I think he had some repenting he still needed to do.

Anyway, here are some photos I took yesterday after the sun came out and it stopped snowing. I believe we had 7 inches and that was over the layer of ice rain from the night before.

There was no going outside at this point.

Kind of a pee trail for our little dog Max. The leaves are for when he does real business.

A main road by our house. You kind of had to guess where the lanes were.

Critical snow or not he drove me past the drive through to get coffee. Then we went to the market you see in the distance.

Howdy tonight photobe! wow what a glorious winter you guys are having up there! It should be tapering off here pretty soon though. In the heat of the summer you'll think back on the cold fondly! lol. Great pictures by the way.

It just looks really cold. Reminds me of living in Austin, TX and the January 1985 snow... depending on where you were, 5-8". San Antonio got more than a foot... the city used road construction graders to clear the runways at the airport... it was weird.

Thank you for the tour 💖💖 I'm amazed at how much snow we've gotten so far here. Hopefully Spring arrives for both of us soon 🙏

Goooo #powerhousecreatives 💯👍@steemitbloggers all the way! 😘
