Second snow of January

You never know what kind of weather you’re gonna get in Arkansas.  Dave told me in the fall that he wouldn’t be surprised if we have a precipitous winter… so far, he’s been right.

Yesterday afternoon they were predicting another winter storm and it brought back a big reminder of the great ice storm of 2009 (1/27/09)… where we were left without power for 10 days! I’ll never forget that.  (We’re now the proud owners of a generator.)

This morning, we woke up to a few inches of snow (and ice under it) and the snow has been blowing sideways all morning long.  I love the snow, but I’m hoping it will melt quickly!

I’ve decided that as long as we have winter before Christmas, I’m happy… anything after Christmas makes me a little crazy.  I’m thinking Spring.  Until then, I’m sitting inside with a fire in the wood stove, watching the snow come down…and dreaming of spring.

We have had a lot of snow and ice too. Not as much as in your picture though. I'm dreaming of spring too.

I think we are all dreaming of spring! I do like a snow once in a while, though. I well remember the big ice storm of last year because we were driving to Indiana to see our newborn grandson!

Oh, girl, I am dreaming of Spring, too! It can't get here quick enough for me.

Wow! Look at all that snow! We didn't get much here in TX, but my Mom said my Nannie got 14 inches, she lives in Mountain View. My Mom got some too and she's had several snow days at school. I wish we would have ONE more snow day and then I'll be fine :)

Just got home from there. Snow was still on the ground. Glad to be down here where it is a little warmer even if it is rainy.
