Winter Wonder Land

If you click on the pictures,
you can see how hard it's snowing.

"Walking in a Winter Wonderland"
(The driveway at work, less than a half hour after plowing)

Walking maybe, 'cuz nobody was driving in this mess.

Yesterday's view from my office window.
Yes, I went in and worked all day.

No, these weren't edited to black and white.
Yes, it was a big snow dump.

Guess what's coming later today and tonight?
More of the same.
8" - 10"

The snows that were predicted for NE Ohio missed us. We did get ice, sleet and freezing rain, though. And a power outage to top it off. This meant no heat, water, lights or COFFEE.

You guys got more than us, it looks like. Although by the time we got to the end of the drive-way, the drifts we were shoveling through were about a foot high.

The left side of my back refuses to work today.

Yesterday's heavy snowfall is what I remember as being more the norm for Michigan than the mild winters we had during the 90's and early 2000's. Today there is a very light but constant flutter of snowflakes coming down. I feel like I'm living in a snowglobe =)

Living in San Diego, I miss the winter storms that we had growing up back east. I have this annual ritual that involves seeing pictures of snow, thinking about sleds, hot chocolate and a warm fireplace.

And then I look out the window and think, "Well maybe we'll go back east next Xmas."

Yuck, yuck, and more yuck!

After living in Florida for 23 years, I look at those kinds of pictures and think, "BWAHAHAHAHAHA!" I don't miss it AT ALL. The family still in Detroit is not amused with my attitude. ;)

Oh My God! At first glance, I was all like, "oh, that's so pretty. I really miss that." and then....the thought of being stuck inside the house with the boys until it cleared off and we could go outside and OH YEAH...changed those first thoughts real quick!!!
(I really wonder how my brothers and I survived the Colorado storms we had when we were kids! Maybe Mom started drinking long before we thought she did!!)

Stay warm...find a good book...and remember....peppermint schnapps is ALWAYS a good thing to put into hot chocolate!!

As impressive as 8 to 10 inches of snow sounds ... I can do without it. I'm hoping for a snow-free winter. Well, a winter free of serious snows -- we've already had some small ones.

Snow storms are wonderful when you are a small child....I said, popping another motrin for my shovel back.
