It's the mid-west after all...
|9 am yucky rain|
Last weekend we were both fighting the crud, weather forecast said sunny, dry and near 50 today, so no worries we will take it down on the following Saturday. No worries, no stress, perfect plan. Maybe it is time to remind myself that we live in the mid-west, and a weather forecast of only a day is a crap shoot.
Before day break we were rushing to take the boys for their walk - before they got soaked with some seriously cold rain - yep, we were not successful. And the Gator does not like his old bones to be cold or wet.
Then rushing around to take down the outside decorations before the possible 2 - 4 inches of snow hits us after noon when the temps decide to drop dramatically. I did not want to be trying to take it all down in that kind of mess.
Soaking wet, freezing cold, and fingers slowly thawing out, the front of the house doesn't look like the holiday ever happened. Although I did leave the sled and snowman sign up. After all, they are predicting snow.
Besides we need two functioning cars. These long days are kicking our bums. Living so far from work now, it's not even feasible to come home when one of us has to be in early or stay late. It limits opportunities and causes stress we simply don't need or want.
I'd just gotten up for a cup of coffee as they arrived. They were pulling up front as I looked out the back window and realized that yet again the weathermen might possibly need a new crystal ball. The rain was supposed to go steady until after noon. It's not even 10 and big fluffy snowflakes are already starting to fall. I am not sure we will get any accumulation, but I am going to enjoy hanging by the fireplace watching them fall.
Okay... so reevaluation of the weather again... Seems the weatherman that said to watch for hamster sized snow flakes was not exaggerating! These things are huge! Almost a full snow ball size. I do believe it might accumulate. Unbelievable!
It's been a busy week, and I am still trying to find my groove to get back to writing, my goal is to get back to daily. It might take a bit, but I am working towards that goal.
|Butternut Ginger Soup anyone?|
Well the snow is rapidly covering things, so I need to run out for more fruits, veggies and weekly supplies before the snow makes doing that not fun. In the thirty minutes since it started snowing it's already starting to accumulate... And I went for a walk in a windbreaker yesterday... gotta love the mid-west!
Everyone stay safe and warm...
