Oh, It IS Winter

The balmy 40 degree temperatures and sunny days that have marked our winter so far here in the northern climes of New York are very quickly forgotten. Snow has made a sudden and grand appearance. Beautiful from inside a cozy, woodstove-warmed home, troublesome to those who must venture out into the frigid winds and icy roads. One dog hurries out then hurries back in, demanding the fortifying dog treat that makes it all worth while. The other dog joyously launches herself onto the deck, rolling and giddy. Snow angel-dogs appear on the scene, as she cavorts and shimmies. Eating the snow, dashing around, the little dog loves this weather. The other dog, a bit older and wiser, heads down to the comfort of a warm sofa.

We will watch the snow fall, keeping the coffee pot going for those of the household who arm themselves with shovels and snowblowers. A good book, a warm quilt and this witch is ready to sit for a spell.

It seems that winter is weather is playing hide and seek this year. We've had heavy snow, 50 degree days and lots of sunshine and then artic blasts for days. Or maybe Old Man Winter is just a little peavish this year, who knows. Stay warm and dry......Oma Linda

It is nice when you don't have to go out in it! And when you don't have a lot of snow, it still looks pretty.

Enjoy your cozy day!

It's a bit chilly here this morning and the snow that was predicted yesterday seems to have disappeared.

They also predicted temperatures down to 9F. No longer though, around 32 is tha latest predicyion for this coming week :-)

I don't mind cold weather though as long as the snow keeps away :-)

Have a great day!
Christer.
