Winter Storm

We are expecting the worst winter storm of this season to hit us beginning tonight. Usually I dread the thought of any winter weather but this time it is different. I don't know why but I am looking forward to this one.

I know the roads will get terrible and the snow will blow and pile up and school will be cancelled and driving will become treacherous. It is supposed to snow, sleet, blow and we will get freezing rain mixed in to boot. Maybe I don't mind because I have plenty of groceries in the house, the usual granddaughter is here with me so I don't have to worry about picking her up for the weekend and I don't really have to get out in it. Poor Hubby will have to still get to work though. But he is always very cautious and he is a good driver. And he has 4-wheel drive!

I think we will just be lazy and have a pajama day tomorrow and watch movies and read books and do puzzles. That should keep us busy and entertained while we wait for the winter weather to abate.

I think it is ironic with spring just around the corner now, that we should finally have some winter weather and some of the coldest temperatures enabling the ground to finally freeze. But it has been said about the climate that I live in...."you don't like the weather, wait a few minutes, it will change!"

Ah, I wish it would hold off another day, though. I've got a long weekend because of President's Day, and I wouldn't mind being snowed in with my sweetie. Instead, nope! Gotta drive to work through the blizzard in the morning, with all the idiot drivers who somehow forget how to drive in snow when we haven't had any in awhile!

Well, you got your wish here! We didn't get near the storm that they predicted. For your sake, I hope it misses you too! At least until you and your LOVE can be snowed in together!!

I just happened to find a photo last night that I took of the tulips out front, their big majestic heads bowing under the weight of about an inch of snow. I took it last April 24th.

That winter/spring cusp is weird in the midwest!

Yeah Clew, it really is! Right now we are under a Tornado Watch until 11 PM but our outside temp is only 33 degrees. Talk about crazy weather!!

This sounds like Kansas. We've had such mild weather all winter and now....BRRRR! It's the coldest it's been since last winter. And I'm not liking it!

3 times in a row the past 2 weeks, the weatherman has called for bad weather and we've not gotten it. I'm afriad the next time he'll be right but no one will believe him.
