Latest weather & THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY

Just thought I would share our latest weather.  AAARRRGGGG!
If you've been around a while, you know I love Alaska.
I just love it ALOT MORE in the summer;~)
Keep in mind that we had NO snow on the ground
when I went to bed last night.

Not because it had melted, mind you.
It has been in the single digits or minus for the last week.
No. We didn't have any snow because it blows
away almost as soon as it stops coming down.
In our neck of the woods in the winter the wind BLOWS.

So...when I got up and looked out the window this morning we had
 about 10" of new snow, by the time I got home from work the snow
was trying to blow  up over the hood of my FULL SIZE Tahoe
as I was coming up the drive way.
Honey estimates about 15" so far and it's still snowing like crazy.
They predict another 4" before it "tapers off" tonight.
I'm just very thankful that I don't have to drive anywhere for the
 next two days, today was horrible.
On the other hand Honey is quite excited about the snow. 
He gets to go riding tomorrow without having to haul
his snowmachine somewhere else, he's just going to takeoff
from the house and do some exploring.

When he gets back I will get to giggle a little
when he has to dig this out and clear the driveway enough
 for us to get to work on Monday.
I am going to light a fire in the wood stove and
 keep it burning the entire weekend, not because we need it
for heat necessarily but it makes me feel COZY.
AND I NEED COZY!

~And I'm not going to look out the window!~

  1. We are just getting rid of all the snow we got in January...maybe by April! Stay warm and enjoy the weekend.

  3. OK, don't kick me, but is it horrible that I love snow? And I'd love to move to Maine? Can we trade places?
