Today I thought I’d share with you a little of the Southern Winter Wonderland.
This is how my car looks today, January 11 2011, or 01/01/11, at about 9:30am.Over top of that six inches of snow is at least a half inch of icy stuff.Take a look at this locus limb – that’s about a quarter plus inch of ice that fell after dark last night.
Here’s the path to Pixie’s potty spot.Not only does she have to smell the ground, but the snow is up to her…belly, so it’s a bit difficult to get the correct angle…There HAVE been a few times when I got us both dressed for outdoor activities, opened the door, and she turned around and walked back into the kitchen as if to say, "Oh, I forgot. Not now!"
Today is another snow day for us.Not only is the college closed, but there’s No Way I’d be out driving on these roads! Left is the road in front of my neighbor's house. Next is my driveway - no shoveling for me - that's what sunshine is for; right? But there isn't any that I can see, and with the temp hanging out at 28, well, it may be later tomorrow before there's enough meltdown.
Let’s see how much progress I made yesterday on BBD Winter Wonderland.Doesn’t look like so much, but I’m certainly enjoying it!More today…
I’ve had several comments about us southerners having more snow this year than our northern neighbors.Yes, it does seem to be upsidedown, and I won’t speak for the rest of us, but I’m lovin’ it.Y’all be patient and yours will come…ours is just a tad on the early and deep side.I heard the forcaster say yesterday that this is more than we’ve had since 2004 – I had 18 inches on my deck that year – and I believe it was February!!
Thanks for coming by today.I look forward to hearing your Needler’s Point and checking in to see what you’ve been up to lately!
