Just staryed about half hour ago here in Springfield.  The street and drives are white but the yard just looks dusty.  Just expecting a couple of inches.

Well, I woke up to about a half inch of white stuff on the ground.
I don't want it personally, but know that the ground and crops need it.
I only wish it wasn't so cold out. I know, I know, it will get worse.
God keep all safe and please DO NOT be stupid where the cold/animals/
and safety are concerned. If you don't have to be out.........STAY IN.

It is still gently snowing and I am comfortable. Life is good.
Oh, decided unless I go to the warm Pacific I can't go far enough south and
have a good time.
Today, I want to make a difference.
Here I am Lord, use me!

I have not paid attention to the official snowfall amount, but it looks like 6-8 inches with the temperature hovering around 14 degrees at noon.

We freeze, that is we remain in place, and do not go out after a snowfall unless it is absolutely necessary.

This has truly been a gorgeous snow with the big fluffly flakes. I went out late this afternoon and did some clearing only to watch it all go to naught a few minutes later when the last hurrah came through with about an inch and one half more. Total of about five to six inches . I got an email from my friend in Tupelo Mississippi awhile ago, and they have seven inches on the ground, totally unheard of there. Her daughter is thrilled!

Oh my aching back; I am feeling my age tonight. Hello heating pad!

Forget the heating pad, get a mattress pad.  It keeps the whole bed warm.

LOL! I scared the bejesus out of my neighbor this afternoon. He was coming down the alleyway, concentrating on where he was stepping and did not see me as I was sweeping my pathway to the trashcan. Snow seems to silence things and when I spoke, he screamed like a jr.high girl. I had to laugh, although I know it isn't really funny to be startled like that. Gave me a giggle though. Tomcat has expressed his opinion of the whole thing several times with a big shake of his paw just before I boost him out the door. He seems to think that the weather out the front door just may be better than that he has just seen out the back door. Hope that the weather holds on Saturday as my friend has just called and asked me to ferry her home after her one day surgical stay in Bartlesville. We are scheduled for snow on Sunday I think. I already have my sign posted in the kitchen to drip the water tonight; since the meters are not very deep they can freeze with the temps getting below zero. Brrr!!!!
