**note that in the picture on the left, either a deer or a dog left some tracks right along our front sidewalk!! A thinks it was a deer!!
**The sheer weight of the snow almost took out a couple of our trees. The picture on the upper right shows how one tree is being held up by the rails of our staircase. Usually it's about 6 feet higher so you can walk under it!!
Yeah - there are just no words!!
At least not yet - they keep freezing into solid ice as they try and come out of my mouth!!
Do I even need to say it - OK, I will - it's only October. Isn't this supposed to be the time of year were we watch the leaves change color and there comes a slight change in temperature, maybe just a little more of a nip in the air? I think someone has an inaccurate understanding of the word "nip". Just to clarify - it means "a little bit"
This had better not be an indication of what mother nature has planned for is this winter. If it is - I am coming for an extended visit to anyone who lives where it is warm and sunny, so those of you in CA and AZ - you are on notice. Have the air mattresses ready!!
At least A & K found a way to enjoy the falling snow! They have been playing with these umbrellas all summer, at least now they are using them for there actual intended purpose.
In fact when K woke up and looked out her bedroom windows and saw all the falling snow her first response was - "look mom - look at my snow!" Guess she is laying claim to it all!
And I even think A might be to blame for the shear amount of the white stuff that fell, because she informed me this morning that her prayers came true - because she asked for a lot of snow. I guess this happened after I had tucked her into bed, because I have no recollection of the snow request along with her wishes for a good night sleep and keeping her family safe.
Now - I am going to warm up my frozen appendages, and drink some hot chocolate - really HOT chocolate!
