It’s beginning to look a lot like….

Yep. It snowed on Sunday. I heard about it on Saturday, but I have a healthy share of skepticism in my soul and thought we’d just see flurries. When I went downstairs for breakfast it was raining and when I went upstairs to get ready it was snowing. We drove to church in some flurries and came back out to almost an inch on the car.

It’s hard to tell how much we got because yesterday was so warm, but the streets were slushy and the branches are quite low. I looked out the living room window and was startled by how low one branch was. It looked like we had a new tree growing in the yard.

I took a broom out to shake some of the weight off, but I’m not sure it did much good. I am super-super nervous about the branch hanging over my neighbor’s pool. We have an estimate from a tree guy and I said, “Go for it”, but I wish he would have gone for it earlier.

Several houses in town lost big branches. Back in October of 1997 we had a big, wet snow and all the trees still had their leaves. You could hear branches snapping all over town.

It’s supposed to get down to 35 degrees tonight. It’s also supposed to get up to 62 on Tuesday. Crazy weather.

Tiny car and a big party

The banner picture is the only one I took of Rosa’s housewarming party. Rachel, Anna and I drove up to her ‘Welcome to my Casa’ party. She had over a dozen people in that adorable apartment, and a very good time was had by all. I resisted showing my home envy, but not very well. […]

I was at school and then at a meeting and when I came home, the house was good and cold! 62! It’s been at 64 a few times but this is bliss. I turned the oil heater on and snuggled up under a blanket. No furnace for me….. yet…..

Lloyd and I went to a surplus auction today. As we walked in, the little vehicle that has been there every single time with a ‘Not for Sale’ sign on it was front and center, waiting for me to buy it. I left the auction after telling Lloyd my maximum bid, $3,000. It would be […]
