Waiting for the Snow

  

Good Evening, its been a very cold day here with freezing fog something we do not get much of thank goodness.  It has left the trees looking absolutely spectacular. I have taken some pictures of  what has happened as the frost has frozen on top of the small amount of snow we had yesterday.  The forecast for us for tomorrow is pretty bad with heavy snow coming in from the west overnight so the snow spade will be busy tomorrow morning.  While I was taking the pictures this morning children we sledging just along from me and I very nearly asked if I could have a go, but I thought Stu would do the toot if I did that he is more conservative than I am.  I'll have to go and see if Ellen will give me a go on her sledge. Richard took her out yesterday morning and was telling us that the snowman was build before 9-30am I wonder who was up first Ellen or Dad.  We went out and did the New Year shop today with the weather supposed to be so bad tomorrow so it can snow if it likes now and we can enjoy it.  I hade many years when Stuart worked in Edinburgh worrying about bad weather its nice to be more relaxed about it now.  I remember one winter's day Stu had to get away from work because of snow his journey usually took 40 minutes on a good day but that particular day it 7 hours a complete nightmare. He was one of the last cars to get of the motorway before it closed for two days it is the worst snow I have seen in the 15 years we have lived out here.  Hope you are keeping warm and staying safe will let you know if we get a lot of snow tomorrow. Love.

Last bad snow we had a while back, Rob could not get home from the Uni; he ended up sleeping there, I hated it as I was up nearly all night worrying about him! At least they gave him a bed and a meal plus he was not late for work the next day due to the weather!!!Take care and keep warm, love Joan

Wonderful pictures again! I don't have a digital camera at the moment, so missing out on the snowy scenes.

Hope you enjoy your snow then.... we are getting snow here in Wisconsin all day tomorrow... our son has to work so I won't be relaxed about it until he is home for the long week end. Then we too can enjoy the beauty of the snow. Happy New Year, Sandra

The wind is howling as I write, and I suspect the next load of forecasted snow is on it's way. For some reason the temperatures have been lifting since 5am; usually gets warmer before it snows. If the weathermen are right, we are in for heavy and drifting falls this morning. Brrrrrr. I'm staying indoors today again. Keep warm, keep smiling.
