So Punxsutawney Phil says 6 more weeks of winter. Why am I not surprised?
We've had more snow events in our area than we've had in 20 years I think. Oh, we've had storms drop lots of snow before but never so many days of snow. We are getting snow every week it seems.
Yesterday was no exception.
When it was over we measure about 9 inches of snow on our back deck table. This was a heavy, wet snow - great for making snowmen but it takes longer to shovel - though Emily and Denny did ours, and then Tim, Denny, Rachel and Lindsay did a couple from church, and then Tim, Rachel and Lindsay did the house that Joseph and she will live in. Did you follow all that shoveling?
This morning it's a beautiful winter wonderland.
See the baby snowman with it's wee purple scarf? Cute. They added blue food coloring to a squirt bottle of water and colored their snow people. My niece Kaitlin, who is almost 23 years old, had never made a snowman before.
There is a real beauty in winter. But my heart is turning to spring. Tonight, into tomorrow we are going to get snow and ice, which will be a mess. Then I hear more snow is expected on the weekend. Accuweather.com shows that March 1st will be 52 degrees and rainy. Who even cares about the rain at this point? It will feel balmy at 52 degrees! Two weeks ago though it said March 1st would be 40 degrees and partly sunny. So who knows?
The wedding is now 24 days away. If the weather stays like this we'll have a blizzard! Just kidding, California and Florida family, just kidding!!!
