Snow Day

Hubs and I got up today with the plan on going out.  I'm sewing Sunday morning at a friend's place and I wanted to check out where I'm supposed to go ahead of time.  The temperatures are supposed to be near ZERO degrees out first thing that morning.  In case you didn't already know, quilters can be a bit crazy at times!!

They said it was going to snow later today but it started earlier than planned.  So we're staying home and watching the snow fall.  It's coming down pretty good, but you can still see the houses across the street. Hubs is so funny, a true California native, "I guess it never gets worse than this out when it snows."  I'm from the mid-west so I know that it can get way worse.  I just told him, "you've heard of blizzards, haven't you?"  Lucky for us if the weather is bad and the roads are slick or icy, we can just stay home.  My new favorite hobby is watching the snow come down.  I can do it for hours.  There is something really hypnotic about it.


No, this is not Maggie, although she does love to play in the snow.  It's my concrete Scottie on the front porch.  He sits out there and watches the house for us.  Ever faithful regardless of the weather.

Stay warm out there!

I love snow - it is my favorite weather and I can watch it for hours. When we build a new home, I want to have large windows so I can just watch the weather through them.

Enjoy the miracle of snow!!

Oh I envy you watching the snow---I love it and we used to get quite a bit here in TN and VA, but rarely these days. Love your Scottie watching over you. :)

HI Jean, what is it with Terriers and snow? Our Airedale, Treacle, loves it as did all the other Airedales we had! Normally if it is raining I can't get her to go outside at all, if its snowing I can't get her in!!!! Stay warm and snuggled while it snows. Susie x

Sweet! Lurve the statue, that is SO you Miss Jean! The snow IS hpnotic huh? I loved it when I was growing up in the Sierra Foothills and we would get just enough to be snowed in for a day and the school bus couldn't make it up or down the mountain! Yahoo!
