Waking Up to SNOW!!

We woke up this morning to a little snow on the ground.
Not a *big* amount but enough to please me.
I measured 2 inches on the back deck.
We headed out to clear the sidewalks and driveways.
Brrr... was it cold out there! 
When we woke up it was 32 degrees but the temperature has been steadily falling since then and the winds have picked up. It's gonna be an awfully chilly night.
Mark tackled with a shovel.
Dad got the tractor out and used the plow.
It's a good thing because even though there wasn't a huge amount of snow we have a good bit to shovel between our house, my parent's house and a few neighbors that we shovel for.
And since they handled the most of it I took off with my camera to snap a few pictures. 
Hope you all are staying toasty warm!

You sure did get some snow. They said we were getting some snow and all we got was a dusting. This winter sure has been strange!'

Have stay friend and thank you for the winter snow post.

You got way more snow then we did! Ours wasn't enough to sleigh ride in. It's too cold to go out with the wind gusts too. The dogs are so mad that it snowed because it's been in the high 50's and 60's all week until today! lol

Stay warm!

Hey, that's great that you got snow.

We have had a few little tiny windy storms with snow since October. And one sorta big snow storm but that is it.

We need it to snow big or we are going to be in trouble come summer.

Have a great rest of the weekend.

Take care, Janet W.

I missed the little snow we got here and it didn't stick at all. I'm so relieved I'm not slipping and sliding this winter.

We had a dusting of snow here. I was hoping for a few inches before Spring arrives. The temps are super cold here. Snow always makes great pics. Blessings!
