Sneaky Snowstorm!

After a long spell of brown roads and barely any snow in our yard, the snow began to fall last night, every so lightly, slowly to the ground. We didn't check the weather station as it didn't look threatening and was still warm, well above zero. This morning, we woke up to a bit of a shocking surprise. Snow everywhere and a freezing chill. Almost changed our plans but we're doing a good job of giving ourselves lots of time to make decisions with the final items on the new house and we had a meeting at 9 a.m. with the flooring manager. So off we went, plowing through the deep snow, thankful for our winter tires and the lack of vehicles out on the road this morning. 


In just under an hour and a half, we chose all the flooring for the entire house and came home with samples of all to make sure we're happy with our choices. The rest of the day was taken up with phone calls, emails, shopping lists, fridge cleaning, recycling, vacuuming, bottle gathering, then shopping for groceries, meeting someone for a gift exchange, a trip to the library and then a quiet dinner with our girls. Watched a movie and now we're ready to crawl in to a warm bed, while the wind howls outside. Tomorrow is supposed to be a bit warmer but for the next week, we'll definitely be more bundled up then we've had to be. Can't wait for the next warming trend!


How's the weather in your community?

Having a cozy home to return to after an outing in such weather is wonderful. Here the temperatures have warmed up but the skies have greyed and rain falls occasionally. Lots of rain is predicted for tomorrow.

Stay cozy.

That's great Penny! Winter is so much nicer when it's mild.

Lorrie, I hope the rain is light and doesn't last too long!

CC, we've done well so far. My son from the coast couldn't believe how little snow we had when he was here for Christmas. He was almost disappointed!

Our snow is actually hasn't accumulated a lot. The temperature is pretty cool but next week, we're back to a warming trend, with above zero the story of the day!
