Winter Wonderland...

We, here in Minnesota, have been under a winter weather advisory since last night. We woke up to this... ...and it's supposed to continue until 6:00 am Sunday morning. I don't know how much has accumulated so far (it looks to be at least 6 inches). We had about a three hour reprieve so
Tom and all our neighbors ran out clear the driveways after the plows made their first rounds. It's the really wet, heavy snow so all the branches of our trees are sagging under the weight. It also caused about a three hour power outage so the temps in the house dropped down to the high 50's...thank Goodness for the fireplace (not to mention three sweaters and two pairs of thick wool socks!)It sure is pretty (but I know what this means for us here in the Midwest). Oh well, it's inevitable! Hey...is it too early for Christmas carols?

I'm jealous! It looks beautiful (and inconvenient). ;)
