Snow, NASCAR, and Old Folks

It's snowing along my pathway. Not a blizzard - just a slow gentle snow. I'm watching the holly trees and evergreen trees begin to build a white frosting. If we have snow it's good that it happens on a long weekend. Time for the kids to enjoy playing in the snow. Time for adults to do whatever they do when snow slows our lives. As for me, I intend to breathe deeply and just enjoy watching the snow fall. We have everything we need right here at home so no stress. The positive slant on this cold weather, for me, is that there should be fewer insects this summer. (Doing a happy dance)

I sound really calm about the weather but believe me - I've spent my time grounded by blizzards that lasted for days and dealt with snow on the ground from Christmas to Easter. My sympathies are with those of you who are facing these unbelievable storms. I'd be almost panic stricken if I had to live through it again.

This is Daytona 500 weekend and everything in this house is focused towards various related events. If weather delays the events Harry will really be disappointed. He's ready!!! Valentine Day will be a wash in this house - darn it. Choosing between the Daytona 500 and his valentine (me) is a no brainer to Harry. It's OK - I won't have a melt down.

As usual, there's nothing exciting to write about. We just rock along with the same-old same-old here in our world. Stay warm and cozy this weekend. Maybe the weather will begin to moderate soon.

I hope that snow isn't headed my way!
So far this year we have had 83 inches of snow!! That is just unbelievable for here. Some years we don't even have to get out the snow shovel!
Have a nice weekend.

We have at least four inches of snow here south of Atlanta and expecting even more south of us. The roads are wet, soon to be frozen, so we are in, probably for the next few days. Don't you just LOVE you "boring" life? I'm so thankful for mine. :-) Oh, and we'll be watching the race as well.
