Baby, It's Cold Outside!!!

January seems to be the Ice Month in southwest Missouri! For the past 3 years, we've had an ice storm sometime in January...Let me tell you, folks. I DON'T LIKE ICE! Well, no one really likes ice, unless it's in your tea. But this kind of ice is treacherous and just plain nasty! It started yesterday as frozen rain, then sleet, and turned into snow just after midnight. Since today is Tuesday, I didn't have to work so John took the 4-wheel-drive truck to work...I'm sure glad he did.

John just called and they've closed his office and he is on his way home from work. Thank goodness. It took him over an hour and a half to get home last night - usually takes about 30 minutes.

Here's a picture of what I saw when I looked out the morning room window this morning.

Those poor cows have ice on their backs! John says they have insulation so not to worry too much.

They say this will probably last another day...another storm is on the way from Oklahoma..maybe I'll have tomorrow off, too. I see more sewing and knitting in my future.

Stay warm and safe, everyone.

Till next time.

Thanks for stopping by.

I want to get snowed in! I bet you will get lots of fun knitting-quilting stuff done. Don't forget to make some soup and cookies!

I *Love* your new header! It has been cold here too but no ice, thankfully. We are counting the days away until the arrival of Nana and Papa!
