Love it? or hate it?

How is the new Year going for you? so far so good here in Iowa. Luckily we have dodged a few snowstorms. We have had about 5 inches of snow so far. Three just the other day. I know there is a lot of winter left but I sure hope our lucks holds out. I use to love snow days when my kids were in school because it meant having them home. That went from loving to hating/loving snow days. Hated them because it meant a house full of daycare kids and extra work but loved them because it made for a better pay day. Now I plain just hate the cold and snow. I guess that goes age. At least I have the choice of going out or staying in most days. Today is one of those sunny days that is so deceiving. Looks great but the temp is 30 with a wind chill of 20. Better than it has been but still cold in my book.

How do you feel about winter? Love it? Hate it? Just remember being here is a good thing and spring isn't too far away.

For once they were right. Dang.

What a night. We have had freezing drizzle and now freezing rain since early evening. So far so good. We haven't lost power. If that doesn't happen we will have it made. We went grocery shopping last week so we  have plenty of bread, milk etc. The forecasters have been talking about this ice storm all week. We were hoping that all their hype proved wrong. But this time it didn't. We have spent the day watching basketball and football. We have no plans on going out till Wednesday when the temps are suppose to be in the upper thirties. Or better. I am hoping for the better so that all this ice melts fast.

Any way, i can't just sit and watch T.V. So I was looking through my photos, selecting some to use in my card making. I decided maybe all of us in the Midwest could use a few warm weather pictures to remind us that "this to will past".

Stay warm, stay in if the ice is where you live. Most of all stay safe.
