The blizzard continues

Our house looks so pretty in the snow!




According to the local weather forecasts, we're do for another band of heavy snow. It has really not stopped snowing here for the past 23 hours. Our town is now listed as one of the top five in snow amounts in the greater Cincinnati / Northern KY /Eastern Indiana area. We are about 1/2 mile from I75 -- and here's what it looks like about 5 minutes ago.

Not good! I'm glad I'm not on the highway today! Cincinnati Airport is still open (one runway), but busses and public transportation are closed. We're on a Level III emergency which means no driving or you get ticketed. Of course the news station just covered a yuppy couple out in the Hummer because they wanted to take pictures...

Jeff is out shoveling walkways and pushing snow off our gazebo roof. I'm guessing we have about 10 inches of snow right now, still with another 4 to 6 to come, and MORE snow forecast for Sunday evening (tomorrow).

The pictures of the snow really are pretty, but all I can think of is "Boy, am I glad I don't live up there anymore!" Here in the sunny southeast, we are having flurries, which around here amounts to about 10 snowflakes per minute. It's not even sticking on. Be safe, be warm. Sorry about missing your grandson today. Just like during school, consider it a "free" day - do what you please!

Humph! Could you send it our way? We are getting RAIN all day today. And to think, Bryan asked me where I wanted to go for April getaway (me and him, ALONE) and all I could think of was coming to see you guys! Bryan said it's not warm enough there and I told him, oh they don't get snow out there. You made a liar out of me!

Oh come visit anyway, Sarah! We'd love to have you! Admittedly, April weather is iffy, but very unlikely to be snow -- more likely rain and temps anywhere from the 40's to the 80's! LOL I'll email you with suggestions and see what you think. Won't get it to you til tomorrow tho because my To Do List is a long one today and I need to get off the 'puter! xxoo
