No one can make me grumpy today!

Okay, Tim, it's not piled up to our windowsills ... and no, Ann, no one had to go shovel it away from the door ... but by jiminy, it's snow! Enough to shock the dog when her toes got covered this morning. And enough to make me believe it really does, occasionally, snow in Southern Illinois.

We had our first (and probably last) official Snow Advisory last night ... for "blowing snow." It snowed for several hours, but the "blowing" part sent most of it on up the road to Carbondale. What did manage to slam into something and stop in our yard looks very pretty!

Here's a view of our back yard and Ev's shed:

And here's the view from the front porch.
It's already warming up out there, and I don't think our little Winter Wonderland is destined to last long, so I thought I'd better get a couple of pictures of the "snow of ought 7" while I could. While I was outside snapping these for you in my fluffy white slippers and robe, Katie and Dane drove up and didn't see me in my "snow camo" ... : )

It doesn't look like I'll be getting any snow days off work this year, so me and Jesus H. Chrysler will probably be back on the road Monday like none of this ever happened ... but in the meantime, doesn't she look cold????

Time for a cup of coffee and a Netflix!!

Sorry Kwatch, but all I can say is piffle.

I chipped more snow off my morning paper than you got in your whole yard.

You people looking for snow need to consider upstate New York, not "southern" anywhere.

Dearest Ann,

Eat my shorts.

Awww, Kwachie, I'm so happy for you that you finally got your snow. We got about 3 more inches last night but it's all supposed to melt and disappear this week.

And it is snowing again.

Neener neener neener.

I got more snow than you got snow, and we got black ice to boot.
