BRRRRRRRRR..........

We now have about an inch of white stuff on the ground. Now mind you, we were expected to get really cold this week, but only locations from Tacoma SOUTH were expecting snow! HRMMMMM They missed again.

I LOVE snow. I love to lay on my stomach and peer out the bedroom window and watch it snow, and watch the birds scratch through it to get to the seeds on the platform feeder. I Love to watch the snow stack up on the backs of the squirrels that are sitting on the feeeder. Nothing keeps the critters from having breakfast.

I am supposed to have taken the TURKEY up to Lynden to my son's house so that they can start it thawing and have it in the oven when we get there on THURSDAY, however, the roads are not conducive to driving 75 miles up and back in a few hours. I thought now how can I get them a turkey? SAFEWAY!!! I bought a gift card, stuck it in the mail, and it should get there tomorrow so they can go 5 miles into Lynden and buy what they need. AND, if the roads are still un drivable, I dont have to worry. They can go ahead and have their own dinner, and Bob and I can go down to the community potluck, and not sweat the drive!

The weather is predicted to warm up by Thursday, but it is cold enough right now, to keep the ground pretty cold for a week or so. Is this La Nina really going to be the worst in 75 years? KEWL!!! I am ready. Plenty of wood, plenty of books, plenty of food, plenty of pet food, and I suppose I should fill the water jugs in case the power goes out and the pump generator (community well) quits working. I am ready! Actually I am looking forward to it.

Yeah, I know! I AM Nuts!!! Must be the Girl Scout in me. BE PREPARED!!

I too would be looking forward to it if I did not have to drive to work on the slick roads. I called in this morning, and said I was not going to attempt to drive to Langley after hearing reports from a friend, that the roads were very slick and a couple of roads had been closed already. Being involved in an accident is not worth the few dollars I would be earning for a couple of hours work.
Stay warm my friend.

Brrr... stay warm...my chat friend on Gabriola Island north of you is reporting minus 11C monday night. Unseasonable weather swings here in NZ this spring. Daytimes from as high as 29C down to a low of 13C...Nights vary from 10C to 3C...extra blankets on the bed last night.

keewee you stay home and stay safe!
It isnt worth it on this ice!!

edt: It's funny isn't it to be going into one season while we are just the opposite?

Keep warm and safe - If the power goes off how will you blog so we know what's going on up there?

We still haven't had a frost yet but it was almost there this morning

ANji, If the power goes out I wont be able to blog. But it is rarely out for more than three days at the most!

Will be anxious to hear where you ended up spending Thanksgiving. Sounds like you were prepared for an alternative if the weather turned bad.

I love the cold and snow now that I no longer have to drive to and from work in it.

I'm sure weather patterns are changing a great deal. We usually have the kind of weather you talked about, but so far, we are not having that kind of snow. It started last year and it looks like this year we are missing the heavy snow, too. I can hope so! Yesterday's storm went north of us and we just got a little snow. Not complaining! NJ
