The day broke and I could see the aftermath of last night’s “winter weather event”. I was a little leery to peek out of my blinds this morning because I heard sleet and freezing rain blowing up against my bedroom window all night into the wee hours of the morning…yes, we’re talking until about 4:30AM CST.
The day up on the mountain has been grey and cold. The street is “slushy” at best and the only vehicles I’ve seen have been ATVs and 4 wheel drives.
When Watson the Wonderkin and I ventured out we found a glazed, crunchy, cold, icy world. Wonderkin wasn’t quite sure where his “potty” went AND why just last Thursday someone got the great idea to get him groomed (and it went a little too far with a summer cut).
So for now my day will be spent with hot chowder, hot coffee, a fire in the fireplace and a view of a winter wonderland…
You’re kidding, right?
I feel so exposed…
That’s one cold Schnauzer
Yes, a fire would be nice…
Honey, where’s the burgers?
It was still coming down in tiny little flakes
Oops, who left the back door open?
My big steps and Watsons little steps
Now that’s cold
Don’t think I’ll be going anywhere anytime soon…
Up the street
Branches and Ice
The burden of being cold…
Lower driveway – skating anyone?
Top of the upper driveway
Wintery Crepe Myrtle
