Sunshin on the snow

Today was a beautiful day. We woke up to sunshine. Yesterday we got a call that church was canceled because of all the ice on top of the snow. Our church meets in a school and the parking lot and sidewalks are not clear. All the roads in subdivisions are not clear either. The ice on the trees just glistened. The snow was all sparkly too. After breakfast we decided to walk down to the creek and take some pictures. I used a walking stick and hung on to Howard. I only fell once! When we got to the main road we decided to walk on it. There were not many cars going by, and we could just step to the side.


This is a big oak tree that we can see from our house. The moon light on it last night was so pretty with all the ice on it. Today the sun was shining on it and it was all glistening.

The water was flowing pretty good when we got down to the creek. There are some ice cycles on the water falls, tho.








































Howard bought this insulated jump suit for work. He works in a garage when he goes to work. He's used it quit a bit in our garage working. It really wasn't too cold today, especially when you are walking.



After lunch we drove down to Michael's to pick up some things. We had some coupons that had to be used by today.

I also did some studying on my bible study. I'm teaching a Women s class on Wed. night at church.

I worked a little on a puzzle. This puzzle is going to take a long time! It's all different covered bridges in the USA.

Tonight is below freezing again, so the ice will still be there tomorrow morning, but it's suppose to warm up. This is unusal for us to have snow more than two days. It has been pretty to look at.

Snow


Matt suggested that I start a blog. I will give it a try. Won't promise how often I will write in it.

Yesterday morning it started snowing about 9:30. We scrapped our plans and left for the YMCA to do our workout before we got much snow. It was still snowing when we went to bed last night, but it was starting to rain and we have a layer of ice on everything this morning.

We are having some neighbors in today to eat chili and play some games this afternoon. We certainly aren't driving anywhere.

Howard measured the snow in the driveway and he said we got 3 inches. This is the most we've seen since we moved here.
