Yesterday I thought the cold is more acceptable when it’s accompanied by a good snowfall. It snowed all day and was lovely.  It also snowed all night, and continues as I glance at the window.  We’ve had our four to six, it’s time to stop.  Are you listening, Lake Huron and Lake Erie.  We don’t get lake effect snow in February during real winters when the lake is frozen over.  Living on the watershed between Lake Erie and the Ohio River means snow in any event; storms hit the ridge, stop and dump their load.   But it’s been a very mild winter.  No Alberta clippers, no panhandle hooks.  One lake effect event in mid February with forty degree temperatures by Wednesday---I shouldn't be grumbling. 



Today I am going to attempt some blog housekeeping.  I may succeed, or I may disappear.  Check back tomorrow.

  2. Like you, I prefer the snow to accompany the cold. The white blanket makes all things beautiful to gaze upon. We are having single digits without the beauty of the snow here in the middle of nowhere, in the great state of Missouri (pronounced misery).

  5. You are officially in the Snow Belt so you always get more that we do. You have my sympathy!!!

  6. We so rarely get snow where I live (and it doesn't settle) that I am consumed with jealousy. If the garden was covered in snow I would be unable to see the weeds and one of my guilt triggers would be gone.
    Housekeep carefully please.

  7. We haven't even seen an Alberta clipper here in Alberta this winter! Mild? I'll tell you. Three degrees above freezing today. Not your typical Edmonton February!
