Well about 20 minutes before midnight I went to bed, and I didn't peek out the windows. When I woke this morning, they said around midnight it started to snow. They are calling blizzard conditions and our wind chills are -23.

We have quite a few inches of snow, schools are closed  . That means I'm trapped in the house with 4 kids today! Aggghhh! Someone rescue me!  


Ron keep looking at those paradise posters. LOL

Snowball fight anyone?

I had to turn down the air conditioner so I could concentrate on reading this. And then I had to refill the ice in my lemonade, apply sunscreen and close the shades a bit as the sun was in my eyes. What were you saying?

I heard about the anticipated blizzard last night on the news (predictions of a foot of snow today, with more to come), so decided to leave my artificial paradise this morning for a quick run to the store before the roads became impassable. I don't really need anything, but there are a few items that could stand restocking.

Didn't happen.

I kinda forgot that in this kind of cold weather you really have to start a car occasionally if you want the battery to stay charged. Sigh.

Those who insist that snow and Holiday Cheer are related should probably avoid looking out the windows this year. Y'all might just burst from all that Joy!

It's Kansas and it's cold and the snow is too darn dry to pack...it just crunches and crunches underfoot, sending delightful shivers up your spine...

and it's a gosh darn SNOWGLOBE!

Hey Nan...when you peek in...thanks for the angel...I love her!

Sharon I forgot to tell you that I put snow in that glass. Ya know what they say bout yellow snow now don't ya?    


Elizabeth throwing one back at ya! WHAM! Knocked her out. hehe kidding

Ron OMG, yes you should occasionally start the car. We have more coming, heavy stuff tonight and winds are gonna pick up, creating drifts. Why don't you take your battery out and bring it in the house? Keep it warm, so when you want to go out you can pop it in and GO! At least you'll be ok for a while, now let us know if you REALLY have to have something, we'll send Sven out on his snowmobile! hehehe    

Sharon heads up, gotcha with a snowball!    

The poor telephone guy had to come today in this and install another telephone line for me.      Now my dad has to travel and come and hook the inside up for me, so I can be on my puter and actually talk on the phone at the same time. Woohoo!

Melanie, if you want to come sleep in this stuff, have at it! LOL it's cold and windy and well you get mighty damn cold after a while. Like Ron's battery. LOL

Splat gotcha with a snowball Melanie! You can put that in your bed and sleep on it.  I'll trade ya!  
Without the snow of course.

Susan if I could find a way to send it to you I would. You and Melanie come for a visit, build a snowman, have a snowball fight, and then you can go home to the warm climate. See while I was in Georgia and teasing my family, like Sharon is doing to me, now it's come back to get me, by giving me a blizzard the last 2 years, the only 2 years I've been back here. LOL

OUCH that hit my nose LoL...Well, I dont really feel much like driving out there at the moment LoL, I just drove to and from Nevada this weekend and Im kinda sick of driving right now LoL, and God knows I dont have money for a plane ticket, so I guess I will be wishing for a white winter in southern california LoL yeah right, like that will ever happen!  So I will have a peaceful sleep tonight that I am sleeping in the snow in front of your house with a t-shirt and shorts on =)  As for that snowball you hit my nose with *winds up and throws*  haha got you back!  But you know, I couldnt sleep with the snowball in my bed though, it would melt in one second...shoot, it would melt before I even got it home LoL.  Oh well, wishful thinking, one day Jesse and I will move where it snows...and then I can rub it in to everyone out here LoL

(sneaking up on her from behind) WHITEWASH!
hehehe    Well for a couple years it might be fun to live in the snow, but I tell ya, I'd rather be south. Rather be back in Georgia. It did snow a little bit out there, but just enough to dust the ground, make it pretty, and it was gone a few hours later. Now that I can handle!  
And yep, you wouldn't wanna sleep in a wet bed now.

Why don't you take your battery out and bring it in the house?


I could almost bring it in the house without taking it out of the car, Rebecca. The Miata doesn't take up a whole lot of room.  

Getting the battery out, however, is a bit of chore. Getting TO the battery is a chore (it's in the trunk). Which is the only reason I didn't hook up the battery charger to it this morning. No hurry. I figure I'll get to it "soon."

As it turns out, my non-trip this morning was serendipitous. Y'all know how I hate crowds and long lines, and according to tonight's news I wasn't the only person heading for the store today. I hear it's almost impossible to find a loaf of bread for sale. Fortunately, my intention was just to "top off" an already adequate supply of groceries. I figure I have enough to last until about mid-January, and we're bound to have a break in the weather before then.

Right?

Rebecca... Take those ruggers out in the snow and make snow angels with them.. It makes it all worthwhile....  

Ron... Wanna borrow my super duper battery charger upper?... It'll start the Miata right up... It's a "must have" item - for sure...  I still have no snow.. Almost got a bit the other day.. but it wasn't quite cold enough....   ... um... How many Colon-ites does it take to form a line?... 2?..3?..4?... You sure it wasn't just Fawn and her family at the store?

LOL Ron! A break in the weather in January? LOL  one never knows. We're dropping out here to -40 with the wind chills.  God, brrrr, just thinking about it. Ron just drive that Miata right on in there, blast the heat (if you get the battery going)and then you'll really have a tropical paradise. (That is if you don't fumigated)  

Nan they've been out a couple times today playing and building snow forts.
Baby couldn't go out cause her momma didn't bring her any snowpants. She would have froze in no time.

Ok, dinner and out to shovel once again, maybe if I'm not too exhausted after the second time shoveling, I can make a snow angel too.

Well Nan, if I waited for this to melt, I'll be in here a long time. We've way over 8" already. The plow was only down our street once today. The main roads are a mess, they just can't keep up with it all. The winds are blowing and the snow is drifting to 4'-5' high.

I need to get to a store soon. So I shovel my way out, why? Cause my darn snowblower don't work anymore
