Today, we have about 10 inches, and it's still falling. Gregg, David and I took 2 walks, this morning and afternoon, going 5+ miles in the snow.
It's beautiful, and feels like a true "winter wonderland." The temperature is not too cold outside, our power is on (thanks be to God), no wind and we are COZY. The authorities advise staying home if you don't HAVE to be on the road, and we don't have to go anywhere. We went to the grocery store yesterday (where it looked like half of the county was gathering), and got what we needed for the upcoming days. It wasn't even unpleasant; it was more like an impromptu town party. Every parking spot was full, and every grocery cart was in use. They were handing out fresh-baked cookies to the shoppers who were standing in the checkout lines. We love our great, family-owned, local grocery stores.
Here is what it looked like, walking down our driveway this morning.
The cats did not like the deep snow, at first, but they got used to it.
We will wrap gifts today, and maybe bake some cookies. It's nice to have quiet days together.
Thanks for all of your compliments to David on the Christmas lights. He regrets that he can't travel to put yours up for you, KBL...he's snowed in here!
