Snowy Friday

The forecast for Thursday said snow, and in amounts that ranged from 1 inch to 8 inches.  We didn't get any snow, but the forecasters all started saying the snow would reach us Friday, and it could be about 2 or 3 inches.  So you know where this is heading, right?

It's 10am and here's what's currently in my front yard, and this is all from today.

It's still snowing, but lightly, so hopefully there won't be much more.   Granted, I do live in a vortex of weirdness, where you can drive 2 miles down the road and the roads might look different.   During the winter months, it's not uncommon for us to have a solid inch or two of snow on the ground, but a few miles away there's only a dusting.   It does make it difficult to gauge road conditions since it could be super slippery on my road but perfectly clear three roads over.   It's usually a few degrees cooler here too, but that's never a bad thing, particularly in the summer.   Hence, the vortex of weirdness.   I fit in well here!

Here's some random outside pics.  First, the porch railing.   That's a little solar light on the end, lights it up just enough at night.

If there's only a few inches, I'll shovel the front steps and walk from steps to driveway.  I did the steps, but quickly gave up on the walk.  Hubby can fire up the snow blower when he gets home and have it cleared in no time.

Thanks for looking, now it's time for a cup of hot coffee next to a roaring fireplace!
