We have actually had a somewhat mild winter here so far. I will probably be sorry I said that – it’s like tempting fate or something to mention that bad weather hasn’t happened. Now, if we get a huge storm, everyone will blame it on me. Anyway, we have had a couple of decent snow storms and it has gotten down around zero for a few days here and there, but we have had years where we had 3 or 4 feet of snow on the ground by this time, with temperatures so cold, it felt like it would never melt. Of course, it is easy to be complacent about the weather when you work from home. I don’t have to scrape snow off my car every morning or drive on icy roads. I just pour myself another cup of coffee and saunter over to the computer.

As you can see, Larry is not so fortunate. Those are the tracks of his truck as he left for work yesterday. He is working outside this winter, which makes me cold just to think about it. I honestly don’t know how he does it. He doesn’t even have hot flashes to warm him up either! He did leave a pretty picture behind though.snowy drivewayHow is your winter going this year?

    This winter has been rather chilly here in Texas! Hubby is still trying to thaw out from the snow we had last week!

    One of the drawbacks of living on a large plot – all that shoveling! I don’t miss it. Put it sure is pretty.

    It’s been great so far. Today we had a 2-hour delay due to icy conditions and we had a nice snowfall last week and a snow day. It was cold enough that the snow is still on the ground. And it IS a pretty picture, that.

    Trisha – snow in Texas must be kind of a shock isn’t it?
    Amy – we do almost all it with the garden tractor plow – we live in the middle of nowhere, so no sidewalks to shovel at least!
    Kate – our school district is famous for not cancelling, even when everyone else around us does – used to make the kids so mad.

    We had a mild winter … until about a week ago. We got about 8″ and then bitter cold. Some of it finally melted on Monday … but, another 8″ storm is hitting as we speak (or is it type?) It’s supposed to snow all night … and then again, temps around 0 and nothing above freezing for a week! I think I’m in Upstate New York or Maine!

    LOL. Working from home is sooo much better in the winter. It makes you glad you have to stay inside. Unlike summer where it is complete torture to be locked to your computer when you would like to be outside.

  7. I WANT SNOW! We’re supposed to get some tonight. WOOHOO!

    CM – I remember a very snowy winter in Maine – holy moly, that was a LOT of snow!
    John – I can schedule myslef to be out in the garden during the best hours though, so I can’t complain too much.
    Flea – didja get some?
