Baby, It’s Cold Outside

I want it to be sunny AND warm.  Is that too much to ask?  It looks gorgeous outside today.  Blue sky, slightly breezy, crisp.  Looking out there, it seems as though I could grab my cup of coffee, the book I’m reading, and head out to the chairs we have on our back deck.  TheContinue reading “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”

Wind, Rain, and Cold… Oh My!

It’s chill out there.  Wow.  We are getting big wind gusts as well.  Which is why we have a wind advisory in effect until 10 AM CDT tomorrow.  Gusts are supposed to be at 45 MPH.  I believe it.  Whoa nelly!

Blanket of Snow

Blanket of Snow, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Back to the snow pictures of this morning. And in fact, it’s snowing again out there this morning. So lovely, the snow coming down at the same time there’s a shaft of sunlight coming through the trees across the road. Very beautiful combination.
