We have had the most mild winter I remember. Most of it has been spent with no snow on the ground and warmer than usual temps. That changed this week.
This is the satellite view of our poor little mitten state - lots of snow and wind.
The storm started Monday afternoon. The night nurse called in for that night and I ended up going in for part of the night. This is my road at about 4am - it was a nasty drive home. (FYI - I wouldn't have stopped in the road if there were other cars around, but I was the only crazy person out at that time!)
It continued to snow on Tuesday. All the schools were closed, and it looked quite pretty outside.
We got so much snow that it piled up on everything!
This little bush was transformed.
And look at the snow on my clothesline!
Here's the front yard coated in white. We got 9 inches from Monday to Tuesday night, then had a brief reprieve on Wednesday, but it started up again on Wednesday afternoon. We ended up getting another 5 inches. It was quite a start to our snowy season!
I am a Christian wife, mom to 5 and Grandma to two adorable little girls. I have 2 daughters and a son who were born to me and 2 sons who joined our family by marrying our daughters. I have been married to a wonderful Christian man for over 30 years. I work as a nurse at a long term care center, where I am blessed to get to know many older people and their families.
