Stormy Thursday . . .

Our back yard from the dining room window.  There is a pool under all that snow!!

Our bbq grill.

Buddha is under there somewhere.  : )

He laid out there for ten minutes with his face up to the snow.  : )

Keeping a close eye on his brother.

Firewood piled up under the porch and it still got snow on it.

My car.

A pile of snow in the neighbors' yard.

Our outdoor lamp.

School was officially closed for today last night.  After sleeping in a little bit, we awoke to a winter wonderland!!  By this afternoon, when it finally stopped, exactly a foot of snow had fallen.  Everything looks so beautiful blanketed in fresh snow.  Brady, our 11 year old chocolate lab, is in his glory!!  He's been in and out at least a half dozen times today,  mostly just to roll around in the snow.  Our cockapoo Sparky, well not so much since it's over his head a bit.  He'd rather keep an eye on Brady from the dining room window.  Those two are like frick and frack for sure!!  The wind is blowing around now and it's about 18 degrees outside.  I'm always filled with so much gratitude on days like this one.  I'm grateful for our warm and cozy home.  I'm grateful for the hot dinner (pasta and meatballs) that I can serve my family.  I'm grateful that all of my kids are safe and sound and here with me.  I'm grateful that my honey can stay with my father in law who lives close to his job if the roads are too slippery to drive home on.  I'm also grateful to be able to sit in front of this.

How's your weather today?  : )

I love these photos! There's nothing like a good snowstorm! (Not that we get snowstorms out here but I love them anyway!) Everything looks so peaceful and clean under a blanket of snow.
Love Brady's enthusiasm....that weather must bring out the pup in him!

That is a lot of snow, a winter wonderland indeed. Stay warm and safe.

No snow here, just lots of wind. We have storm Doris, battering us with 80 mph winds. We havent had snow like that for about 6 years.
