Blizzard, Flooding, Raining, Thundering, You Name It...........

You name it, we got it!!! Yesterday, I was worried about my sisters home being flooded, as they were evacuated from their home in the afternoon. Today, my main concern is getting to work in this horrible blizzard that we are having. It's no longer a concern, I am not going. I ventured out and it was not so nice, and I value my life more than that.

So, you can only imagine how I am feeling. I have been locked in my home since Thursday night. I was out for a Dr appt on Friday, went to get my meds and then home again. Now today, we cannot go anywhere due to the blizzard that we are having. I have always said I would love to be a stay at home mom, but I do need to get out of the house periodically. I am going a little stir crazy.

Of course, school was cancelled. So Alex is home, as well. He was home all last week, and was only out yesterday to go to school. He's going a little stir crazy too.

Our yard was looking to nice without the snow......my flowers were starting to pop up, now they are covered with yet another snow drift. I hope they survive!!! (huge sigh)

Enjoy the pics......I'm sure there will be more to come, as this is just the beginning.

This is the highest this snow drift has gotten this year. It was almost 1/2 gone from the past snow storms. Welcome Back Mr Snow Drift. (yes my garland is still up.....was planning on removing it last week when the snow was melting, but was sick in bed.)

This was my front yard last week, when it was 40 degrees. All the water had actually dried up, so was looking pretty good......

until this.........more snow. ugh.
I hope you all are having a great week.

Oh, you poor thing. I hope the sun comes out someday and stays out. Not too fast... we don't want floods.
Good luck and stay warm,
Susan
