How picturesque is this? As we drove the countryside, on our way to our oldest daughters yesterday, this is what we saw. It was a beautiful, very bright and sunny day, the glow of the sun peaking through the tree branches appears as a glass covering on every limb. Absolute beauty from our father, son and holy spirit!
The snow started to fall overnight Wednesday, by morning we had about 16 inches of very wet; very heavy snow. The wind blew just enough to cause us to lose power a few times during the night. Thank heavens, it came right back on. Prepared for yet another foot or two hubby & I decided better take precautions and fill our whirlpool tub with emergency water ( when the power is out, the well pump is out) in case we need to take bird baths, boil it for drinking/cooking. Luckily, we received another 4 - 6 inches and then it moved south of us. It did cause some trouble in town where the weight of the heavy snow brought huge limbs down on power lines and snapped the power poles in half, meaning some folks did go without power for a good part of the day.
Wouldn't you know it, the first "humungus" snow fall and our John Deere refuses to work properly. We went all day Thursday & half the day Friday snowed in, then hubby had a brain storm and decided he'd clear the driveway the red-neck way. LOL ( if there's a will, there's a way) He got into the jeep put it in 4 wheel drive and plowed his way around our circular driveway about 4 times, that allowed us to get out to the JD dealer and buy some parts to get the blower back out there to do the clearing. Amazing what winter weight oil and a new spark plug will do!!! hehe
Last night, I volunteered to keep our 2 1/2 year old granddaughter over night. Wow, what an enormous amount of energy these little people have. We started watching Peter Pan at 8:00P though it would calm her down and get her to fall asleep, at 9:20 we put Lady & The Tramp on and it took until 10:30P for her to quit fighting sleep and dose off . Of course, she woke up during the night crying and who gets up to go comfort her. "Me", she wouldn't let me leave so I had to grab my blankie off the bed and go snuggle up next to her. Bright and early 7 A she sits up in bed and said "Get up Grammy, I want to get up." I'm usually up around 6:30am but as I said; I am not used to a 2 1/2 year old with that much pep running around. I think, I'll go to bed early tonight... Someone has to do the chores since hubby will be at work and kid at school.
Good night my friends
