Remember December: M is for More Snow

the back pond is frozen and surrounded by snow

It started snowing here today about 9:30 a.m. The more excited my students became with the big flakes falling, the more apprehensive I was about driving home. The weather people are predicting up to a foot of snow in the next twenty-four hours in my area, then temperatures will be dipping below 10 degrees. Shelby decided to assist me with the camera tour.

We found the oil lamp, propane lamp, more candles, and flashlights. JEJ hauled in more wood and shoveled the roof of the portable garage. Living in a rural area prepares you to always have enough food to feed a family of eight for a month! Alas, I think we are set for what might come. Now we can just grab a book, a warm drink and sit in front of the fire.As always the snow does bring a beauty along with the travel restrictions and power problems. I grabbed my camera before it got too dark today to catch images of the first part of this snowstorm. Be careful out there in the Inland Empire! Stay home and keep dry, warm, and safe.Annie and Shelby didn't last long outside when they knew that warm fire was right inside!

    Tentative Excitement.

    I experience that often.

    Life I guess.

    The snow is beautiful. The dog looking in the window is priceless.

  4. Yes La Tea Dah... it is cold here on Lake Roosevelt. This morning the thermometer read 7 degrees.
    Shelby... I agree. How often can you catch a photo like the one of the dogs. Right place right time!
    Marmite... Thanks so much!
