What a weekend the New Year’s holiday was ………….
- 75 degrees on New Years Eve and New Years day
- Tornadoes and storms on New Year’s Day
- Then Snow starting at night on January 2
- Way to go 2022
Here’s what it looked like when I got up on Monday (Jan 3). A friend took this photo from the cemetery across the street. That is my house kinda hiding.
These are from my back deck. My flamingos have snow on them. 🙂
Then from my front door. This little Christmas tree sits just to the left of my front door – right close to the front on the house (on the front porch – under the porch roof). I’ve used it for many years and no, it is NOT a flocked tree. It’s green, just covered with snow. The wind apparently came mostly from the north. Only the uncovered part of the back deck had snow – the entire front porch was covered.
Probably about 3 inches but stuck to all the pine & cedar trees, bushes that still had leaves and limbs. Yes, it was a beautiful snow. No, I didn’t go farther than the covered part of the deck.
I finally got a picture of Koda outside. It wasn’t quite as ‘solid’ just down the steps in his little piece of the yard as it’s protected on 3 sides – but he was still pretty unimpressed.
Saw this advice on facebook: “If you rarely drive in the snow, pretend you’re taking your Grandma to church. There’s platter of biscuits and 2 gallons of sweet tea in glass jars on the back seat. She’s wearing a new dress and holding a crock pot full of gravy.” Sounded like good advice to me!
