We got another couple of inches of snow overnight. I know this is peanuts compared to many of you, but for here it is unusual. We may just have our second white Christmas in a row! Before last year we hadn't one in over 20!

I would send you sunshine Uncle B, but I would have to send the snow too? Is that okay?

Funny how the sun can change our perception of "outside".
Yesterday was at least 10 degrees colder than today, with basically the same dusting of snow, and I puttered around outside with no problem. Today, no sun, the snow crunches from the sleet..... today is an inside day as much as possible.

Something is seriously wrong with me.
It's 12 above today. First above 0 temp in 3 days or so.
I listened to customers come in all day saying "it feels nice out" thinking they were completely mental.
Well, as an official freeze baby, 12 abouve DOES feel way warmer than 12 below.

I think I've lived here too long......

Babe: Then you should bake choc chip cookies. 'Sides, the oven will warm up the house and the smell will warm up your soul.

A few weeks ago I posted a picture of the front of my house and the point was that there was no color here in Vegas in the fall. Well, we got the surpise of our lives a couple of hours ago cuz now we have color, lots of color. Isn't white a color?
It's snowing so hard I can't believe it and we are going to get about 5 inches today. Be careful what you wish for...... They told me it wouldn't snow in Vegas. Palm trees and snow don't mix.
