Will It Ever Stop?

It hasn't really stopped snowing since last Monday, when the storm moved into our area. Oh, we've had the ocassional short breaks, but then it starts right back up again. Last night it actually warmed up to freezing. We even got just a bit of rain, then it cooled of a couple degrees and turned back to snow.

I got up at 3:30am so I could say goodbye to Sarah and Frank. Sweet Hubby took them to the airport. They left here at 4am. I looked out the window to see how much snow had fallen since 11pm the night before. The snow was extra sticky and created quite a scene outside my window. The plum tree looked so pretty with the porch light reflecting off it and the sky still dark. I tried to take a pic of it. Here's what I got.

This is the kids getting into our pickup truck.

And now they're leaving for the airport.

I'm going to miss them so much. I am also very excited about them going on a life adventure. They're moving to Maynard, Massachusetts and starting a new life.

I went back to bed after they left. This morning, after I got up, I took more snow pictures in the back yard. The maple tree just outside the door.

Down the hill where the satellite dishes are.

Toward the north. That fir is seriously loaded with snow.

I did get a little beading done, and a few inches of Teal cardigan sleeve done. I also experimented with some background ideas for the blog for December. I know what I want to do, but I have no idea how to do it. I guess I'll be giving myself another html programming class.

Today we're going to go see the new Harry Potter movie, and dinner out somewhere. Probably Azteca, since we haven't been there in awhile and it's right next door to the theater. After all this American turkey dinner, a little Tex Mex sounds good.

Right now I'm watching Star Trek movies, knitting, and keeping warm.

Live long and prosper. \\//

27 down, 3 to go.

  1. I'm pretty much convinced that it's never going to stop. Even now there are a few flakes wafting down.

    The husband landed his snowplow in the ditch last night (got it out with the cat) and now he is helping the neighbor fix *his* tractor because he needs to get the snow blower on it... ah, winter in the Panhandle!
