Just a bit of life




No, this won’t be a book or writing related post today.  Instead, I thought I’d share with you some pictures of the snowfall we got today.  Of course, you can imagine that I was beside myself with all this white stuff coming down.  It hasn’t snowed this much in one day since I lived in Alaska in the 1970’s. 

I took a lot of pics around my house from the patio and the front yard, otherwise I was not venturing out to get on the road in this mess.  It was cold and quiet all day.  The snowfall started at 9:30 am with tiny flakes drifting down like bits of fairy dust, but it gradually got to be heavier and bigger flakes.  This action went on all day and at sunset we had about four inches on the ground, perhaps a bit more.  This is supposed to go on through the night and isn’t likely to melt anytime soon with a high predicted for 26 degrees tomorrow and a low of 6 degrees. 

Yes, we are setting some records here for my last winter in this place.  Here are a few of Mother Nature’s pics.

Lisa,

We ended up having a record of eight inches here. The last time that happened was in 1974 and also back in the late 1800's. It hasn't been above freezing in quite some time so most of it is still here. Today was only 25 for a high and it was 6 degrees last night. There is a gorgeous gorge thirty minutes from here on I-15 and 300 cars were stranded in there overnight because of a couple of jack-knifed semi's and so much snow.

I've probably taken about 200 pictures so far. A neighbor and I went out to a state park two miles away and walked around in there yesterday. It was cold (somewhere in the twenties)and very slick. People were sledding on the sand dunes.

At the moment the hot water in my bathroom is frozen. I hope I don't end up with broken pipes when it thaws out around here. I'm dripping the water too, but it didn't help in this case.

Have a good holiday yourself.
