After helping to shovel the driveway, I took a few photographs of the ugly white stuff.
Our house in the woods.
A very cold yard bird.
Another cold yard bird.
These two yard birds seem to be shouting their disapproval of the snow.
At least this time no one is waiting in vain at an airport. No one laments the fact of being stuck here and unable to get home. Our freezer and pantry are full, thanks to a discount card we got last week from our grocery store. The wine cellar is stocked even though the discount did not apply to wine. We have a new battery in the generator that failed during the last snow storm and power outage. But, did I mention I HATE SNOW?
So my plan for the afternoon is to catch up on blogs with my back to the windows. Then I'll pop in a Bette Davis DVD and do some knitting. That will be the plan for several days, since we are expecting freezing temperatures to continue for several days. That means we won't be able to leave our community for a while.
For those of you who love snow, I am happy for you. And I really am trying to change my terrible attitude. If I'm successful, I might just take a long walk and enjoy the beauty of the freshly fallen snow. Even the dogs (who typically do not like snow) are enjoying romping and playing in this one. Maybe I'll go out and play with them later and enjoy the scenery. I'm really trying, but I'm not quite there yet.
