Ice, Ice Baby!

This is what we woke up to.  Four inches of new snow with a layer of about a half-inch of ice on top.  In a word, "Yuck!".  After the mild weather we had the last week (temps in the 50 degree F. range), we were not too pleased with seeing this last storm blow through.  Especially those that lost power.  The weatherman is saying another three inches tonight and another system moving in later this week and then yet another on Sunday.  Can someone send Spring here?  I'm trying to be positive and say that it sure beats looking out at brown everywhere.  But I'm ready for Spring.  Bring it on!

Anyway, I was going to post pics of my new kitchen.  But the flu is keeping it's grip on my house.  Had to take hubby to the doctor this morning.  He needs to go to an ear, nose and throat doctor next.  He woke up in the middle of the night last night shivering like crazy and he was running a fever.  He has an infection in his middle ear that a specialist needs to clear up. (I won't go into details).  That, and I have a few finishing touches that I want to put in my new kitchen.  Then I will be ready for the "Big Reveal".  It will be real soon, I promise! :-)

Here are a couple of more pics of what Old Man Winter left us last night.

Hope everyone has a restful evening and stay warm!


  1. Oh so sorry that you do not feel well (under the circumstances, I hate to say under the weather!). The pics of the ice are gorgeous! You really do have a photographer's eye! Hope that the groundhog is right and your weather improves soon! ..From the land of perpetual rain and mud(Seattle)...

  2. Considering the aweful weather, your photo's are breathtaking. Love them.
    Here is to hoping to better health to you and your family.
