    Snow!!

    Now, this is how it's supposed to look here! But it hasn't much this winter. Good day to stay inside and have leftover chili for supper, after playing with fabric all afternoon. Hubby is outside on his ATV with the plow blade on it, playing!

    You can see that I did not venture out to take these pics, just opened the door and stuck the camera out -- I'm a chicken, and I like to keep my feet warm.

    I'm done with all the snow, well I'm done but mother nature isn't listening to our evening news and we're going to get dumped on again tonight and DH the bugger is in Cali right now.

    I live in SE MN and all we got was rain with a few flurries that didn't stay on the ground as it was too warm.

    Looks like we got 12"! It is wet and heavy, heavy, heavy. But my dear hubby got the driveway cleared, and the town did the road, so I should be able to get out tomorrow for volunteering, assuming that we do not get dumped on again!

    I just had to mention when I saw your title and your name I immediately thought of the poem by Leslie Frost. "Walking by woods on a snowy evening" Your pictures fit right in.

    Leslie, we got snow here in ND also. I always look forward to these days because I have "snow days", where I don't have to go anywhere, fire in fireplace, quilting or a good book. We haven't had many here this year, and we missed the 6" they said we were supposed to have. So now I look forward to what is next.

    Have a great day.

    It snowed here tuesday evening and by wedesday it was all melted. They say the
    Black Hills is the bannan belt of South Dakota. I don't care for it. I like snow all winter long.
    I know I am crazy.

    We got 15 inches near Antigo WI area... and it is VERY heavy. I am ready for spring but.. at the same time it is also very beautiful. lol. We really do need the moisture because our lakes are going to be very low again this year. We are not even near our normals for the year.

    WOW..Brings back memories. I was born and raised near Pittsburg Pa. We had lots of snow. I moved to Buffalo NY
    and spent many years there.....I now live in South Carolina and don't miss it at all...it is 80 degrees today and was the same yesterday...keep warm..

    Snow? What's snow? I live on the Texas Guld Coast where the temp today is 77. Cold front coming in with low temps of 41 maybe. Only used fireplace once this year. Send some of the snow to me please.

    Here in mid Wis. we have the warmest winter in over 50 yrs. At this min. it is snowing and we can have 6" yet tonight.
    We don`t mind, as it will not stay more than a day, it should be in the 40`s by mon. Yesterday I pulled weeds from my
    catus bed , and put in some Preen to hold the weeds down in summer. We are sooo blessed here.

    We had more snow here also, both yesterday and today. Maybe we're getting most of our winter in March this year! But the forecast is for warm temps next week -- it will all melt and we'll tumble right into mud season. Oh well........
