The Snow Pictures!

My facebook feed is bursting with SNOW pictures from my Missouri and Arkansas friends …. Guess the Ozarks are pretty much blanketed in a few inches of snow (over an icy layer here thanks to the sleet/icy rain yesterday!).

I bet we got 3 or 4 or 5 inches of snow since yesterday (it snowed most of the morning too!).

I am so thankful to be HOME safe and warm!!   School was canceled yesterday by 7 a.m. long before the precipitation started … and the last time I was out was at 9 a.m. on Thursday at Walmart (where not a bottle of water was to be found!!) and Aldi (that had plenty of water?!) and Chick-fil-A because a chicken biscuit just seemed like the right thing to do.

My friend in Missouri slid in her van on the icy roads yesterday … and almost ended up in a RIVER!!!!!  Thank the Lord for His protection over her!!

Dan had to drive in to work today … I don’t worry about him too much (just the OTHER drivers!!) – he learned to drive in Iowa with a dad whose snow-driving philosophy was “have at it, son, and good luck!”  You’d think since he was a state trooper, he’d be a little more concerned with driving safety … but I guess not.  *shrug*

I am not too afraid to drive on snow, aside from not having a very good vehicle for it in the past.  Our “new” van has an all-wheel-drive mode and is pretty heavy so we’d get some traction.  But if I had my drothers (and a good stock of chocolate, diet coke, and coffee creamer), I’d just as soon stay home!    ALTHOUGH, I have been known to drive in perilous conditions to meet up with a friend for Mexican food after being cooped up too long, though!  Sadly, I have no such friend here in Arkansas yet … but I’d almost consider driving the 220 miles just for one more lunch meet-up at ol’ El Jimador.   🙂

EVERYTHING is canceled here because of this weather … to include our quick trip to see the in-laws this weekend.  After all the traveling we did last week, I’m really very ok with staying home.  I checked out Season 2 of Larkrise to Candleford this past week and a random DVD of Hart-to-Hart that caught my nostalgic eye from the public library.  I hope for some cozy couch time with a blanket and a good movie!

At least this snow has finally made it FEEL more like Christmas!!  Now maybe I’ll actually do some on-line shopping and figure out what to do about Christmas cards?!!

    We are just getting rain………..cold rain! Not my favorite, but oh well. At least we have a warm HOUSE to stay dry in. And, I think I will not be sending Christmas cards this year. Too much going on to try to manage those as well.

    Goodness that’s some snow. We haven’t had much here, had some flurries though the mountains near us are white and filled with snow. Really hoping for a white Christmas.
