Snow? Is this what I think it is????

Today is the day of our first really, truly winter weather ! ! !
Including a bit of lightening this morning. 

 

Us?
We have a great view of whatever activity there is out there.

Most exciting?
One car couldn't make it up the hill
and promptly got stuck turning around.

Two good samaritans in a pickup truck, stopped, got out and proceeded to pushing the car to the center of the street.
Between the driver and the advice of those two samaritans
they got it headed in the right direction and on down the hill.

Not much traffic today aside from the snowplow and the mailman.

Us?
Besides having front row seats of the street activities,
we've had a steaming bowl of soup.
Turkey stock, veggies and pasta!

Now I'm ready for a cuppa Earl Grey and some knitting.

Happy Winter ! ! ! 

hugs

    1. As it turns out, Tracey. Hubby and I aren't that effected by the snow.
      We're taking a couple of 'snow days' by staying home and taking it easy.
      We've been having soup, thanks to the frozen turkey stock and soup.
      Our street has been passable throughout thanks to our city crews and their trusty snow plows.
      Can't say the same about out driveway, though.
      Sure hope some rain falls your way.

    1. Our snowy weather did not last past late afternoon yesterday.
      We're still enjoying soup during Hubby and my 'snow days'

      You may not have snow now, but I do know you've had your share in the past. Perhaps this'll be an easy winter for you guys

    1. Tami, it's the day after and the temp is at least 29 degrees, so it's not all that cold. Unless you spend any time at all outside, especially as the wind blows.

      You will know WINTER :^) !!!!

      toasty hugs

  5. Thanks for the snowy view out your front window.
    The snow was lovely to watch from inside.
    Lucky for us that we didn't have any appointments to miss.
    Stay warm!

    1. Our calendar was clear, expect DD#2 and I had quilting days marked for this time span. She brought her project here so we could work on it together.
      We're quite the team, a laugh a minute.
      We sure enjoy our sewing/quilting get togethers!

      Hand-knit woolen sox are keeping my feet toasty.

  6. Now I see what we missed out on living off the road.

    I enjoyed the day sewing a quilt for foster kids. Oh did I say I am sewing it on my hand crank singer machine.

    Homemade soup was our dinner too!

    Stay safe.


    Ps missed you at guild. I was a treater . . . I took homemade deer sausage and fruit salad.

    1. Patti, that was the only 'excitement' for the entire day. Sure glad we didn't miss it, LOL

      Your Hand crank Singer looks very similar to my Model 15. My 15 is motor-driven, though. Aren't they GORGEOUS?????? Son bought it for me for a whopping $20 dollars. Patti, it is as close to being in prime condition as possible. Missing the mark by a small chip on the enamel back edge. Love it so much in spite of it minute flaw.

      Debbie and I quilted all afternoon, well past the time of Guild meeting beginning.
      Your fruit salad would have one of the dishes I would have dished up! !

      hugs

  7. Weren't those large flakes something to see? Joe was off work so I got to stay inside and knit in front of the fire while he shoveled snow. Good for me; bad for him. Very glad to hear there was something in your house for you guys to eat. Stay warm. Hugs.

    1. We had only several large flakes, mostly small, tiny ones with some sleet and ice. Though overall this was a very dry snow. Not much stuck to trunks or branches.
      Oh, we have His and Hers snow shovels here.

      hugs

  10. I hope you have dug out. Don't know how our lake house is doing. Looking for 6-10 inches here tonight and tomorrow, but it is such powdery snow that you can usually clear the front steps with a broom. Should be a good afternoon to stay home with the Coriander hat, which is making progress. It is simple once I figured out how to read the stitches. We'll see if I'm singing the same tune once I get to the crown. :-)
