Yep, it's winter. *sigh*

We got a little more snow overnight, as you can see by the evergreens. 

Everything was pretty peaceful first thing this morning.

But by mid-afternoon, under our first blizzard warning of the season:

Our yard is fairly sheltered. That was a look in back of the house (the noise was a vent flap blowing and banging in the wind). I can only imagine what it was like out in the open. Now a look out the front. I was noticing the "tumbleweed" (that dark blob on the snow) and hoped to catch it tumbling in the wind. I did... watch for it!

We got a few inches of snow, but not nearly as much as other places have gotten or are still going to get. I guess our pleasant fall is over. Was sure nice while it lasted!

Except for the blizzard conditions, all looks lovely. Stay warm and safe, now that winter is here!

IF we have any accumulation of snow, my kids' excitement would be through the roof! They would not be able to contain themselves!

We had no sledding, not one snowman, not one snowball made or thrown last winter. I was at ACE last week, and the weather came up as we discussed the car brushes displayed. The two young men at the counter also verbally wished for a good amount of snow!

I bought mouse traps (my reason for being at ACE); I could keep one of your cats nice and warm in exchange for keeping the mice away!

The blizzard is over and the sun is shining this morning, with no wind. School started on time. To the north it's a different story... much more snow, and some schools even closed for the day.

I would LOVE to give you one of my cats! Especially Rainbow... it's very tempting to bring her inside, because Josie is lonely without Wispy, but I'm afraid they'd fight (and I REALLY like only having one cat in the house!).
