Making up for lost time...

The cold temperatures arrived on Sunday and it's been snowing ever since.
Chris measured the snow in our yard and in some areas it is 12 inches.




 It's actually been too cold to ice skate, but the view sure is gorgeous from our sunroom windows.


Welcome winter!  We've been waiting for you!

I'm not on the welcoming committee for winter! I'll throw a going away party for it in a few months though.

The snow is pretty, Kim, but does life still go on as usual where you are? Here, we would be paralyzed with that much snow.

Hope you have a great weekend!

The high today was ABOVE zero, that was nice. A trip to the grocery store, the first big shop since Xmas and I decided 10 degrees wasn't really all that 'warm' after all! We are supposed to get snow over night which will make rush hour not so rushed!

Yes, it's equally cold here! Whenever I'm sitting down I have my heating pad with me. lol I just can't shake the chills!
Your pictures are so pretty. And at least all this cold weather gives us a good excuse to stay inside and make art, right?
