It's Snowing Outside!

We are getting our first major snow storm of the year. By this time last year, we had already had 3 blizzards. So I am thankful that the weather has been kinder to us this year. It has been snowing here since some time during the night. Still snowing and supposed to for a few more hours. Kind of unusual to have a 24 or so hour snow. We are lucky in that most of it was fine. Those big flakes did fall, but didn't last long. I went out to measure the snow about 1 p.m. I used one of my quilting rulers. As you can see, we had just under 6 inches then. We've probably had another inch or two since.

Buddy is loving the snow. Here he was out in the road (where he is not supposed to be, by the way), standing in a track left from a truck. He played outside for quite a while this afternoon. It was about 29* and no wind, so it wasn't too bad. When he came in, he was caked with snow. It took a couple of hours for him to thaw out. Then he wanted to go back outside. Hmmm, I don't think so, Buddy. I put one of his potty pads down for him. Now he acts all insulted. LOL 
The snow is bad enough, but that isn't the real problem. The temps are supposed to drop and the wind get up. We live on an east/west gravel road. When the wind blows from the north after a snowstorm, we get drifted in. I am not looking forward to that at all. It means a lot of walking for Kevin. I hope the wind holds off till later in the day tomorrow. I know I should not complain. I feel for the people of the south. At least we have the equitment to take care of snow removal.  Not much I can do about it. After all, it is winter in Missouri. (grin)

I'll add a few pictures of our Christmas. This is Isaiah, our oldest son, middle child, holding his daughter, Madison. This was at mom's party.
Here he is showing Noah how to play the guitar he gave him for Christmas.
Jon is just like his dad and just a pain to get a picture of. Here is what I usually get from him.
This is the best I could get.
I believe he had to shave that hair off his chin for his job. Isn't that a shame! NOT! LOL Jon has beautiful curly hair, very similar to Ava's, but he refuses to let it grow long enough to curl. I miss the days when he was a little boy and had to do what his mama said. LOL

I thought I would also throw in a picture of mom holding her newest great-granddaughter. This is Savannah Marie, my brother, Larry's granddaughter. She was 5 days old in this picture and cute as a button.

 Ok, I caught Kevin without him knowing. Don't tell him, ok. This is Kevin and Ivan watching tv.
Well, that is it for today. I hope to be back tomorrow with some pictures of the grandkids. Everyone have a good evening. If you are in a winter storm, please stay safe and warm. Thank you for visiting. Please come again.

I hope you're staying warm. I feel for the people who have power outages during these storms. Great family pictures, especially that tiny baby.

That snow is supposed to hit us tomorrow. I'll be happy if all we get is six inches of it! LOL

I like your picture of the ruler on the snow! :)

Stay warm! We are getting the snow storm tomorrow!

My pup likes to run around like crazy in the snow. We have not had any yet this winter but that's OK, you can keep it.
The family pictures are fun. Enjoy them when you can.

Buddy is so cute, out in the snow! Our dog Ronan loves it too. Our other dog, Jake, not so much. Madison has grown so much, and is a little doll! I'm glad you got to spend time with her. Love you.

It was still snowing this morning here too, Winona- I'm beginning to think it's never gonna end! *LOL*
That Buddy is a real cutie pie. And I love seeing pictures of your family! The one of your mom holding the baby was very sweet.

I'm so sick of snow I could scream!! A north wind will block the walkway between the garage and the back door. It's awful having to shovel a path through so we can get to a blower!! Great pics of the family :o)
