Woke up yesterday to the sound of the snowblower on the sidewalk...
...reluctant cars warming up in the parking lot, a little snow on the porch...
...and a solid grey sky.
The storm kicked up a notch...
...and the snow came down pretty steadily all day. Outlying schools were closed and some in town were closing early, too. Dagan and Leah are so fortunate that they can work from home if they need to.
I even called Cashwise to see if I should change my delivery day, but the lady told me they were still delivering out of town and, even if they cut off the outlying deliveries, they planned to deliver in town all day as usual. And they came! I asked the intrepid delivery man--no, they don't have special tires or four wheel drive, either--just regular vans! :)
I am sooo happy!! Thanks again to my mystery Grocery-Santa!! I am now stocked up on canned food for Miss Karma, coffee for me, toilet paper, and all kinds of goodies! :):) What a blessing!!
This morning there was a sun dog--quite bright--off to the left of the sun.
Here's a close up. Or as close as my camera will zoom.
The windows were speckled with snow...
...so that it was difficult to get pictures. I wanted to show you the snowpile between those garages that appeared in the last 24 hours.
Very crispy out there at 1 degree right now. We're supposed to get down to 15 to 20 below over the weekend with dangerous wind chills of 25-40 below. I hope everybody stays safe!
Once morning bloomed...look at the sun passing through the cloud layer!
Looked like this beam of light was shining down on the earth.
I am captivated so often by the beauty of the sky.
Miss Karma was captivated by a thicker layer of snow on the porch...
...and the little clumps falling off the flapping screen as the sun performed its magic on this frigid morning.
Those of you who know Karma well will know why she asked to go out three times already this morning (three was apparently enough for her frozen paws) and will recognize what she is doing in this picture.
Yup! She's eating her snowy footprints off the rug--LOL!
Never fails to crack me up. Silly girl!
Right now she's sleeping in the sun and warming up. ;)
Me--still humming and working on letters and the cards with Christmas music on Pandora, so not sure when I'll be around to pop in and say hello again. Just know it's holiday-bubbly time up here in Fargo! Dagan and Leah passed on visiting last night with the storm, of course, and will come next Wednesday instead. I am hoping to have all the Christmas cards done by then so we can get them in the mail...and you know I don't move fast--LOL! Putter-putter-putter. ;) But one can get a lot done a little at a time. (I just got the last of the groceries put away this morning.)
Don't forget to play in the snow and eat your footprints if you feel like it. ;)
