Quiet After the Storm in Windy Meadow

Hi Everyone!

Well, here in Windy Meadow we received 17+ inches of snow in the big storm this past weekend! Yep, 17+ inches of snow. It was a dry fluffy kind of snow and was just beautiful!

I wish I could have shared with you the huge pile of snow that formed on top of our sun dial. It was fun to watch it grow all day and into the night on Saturday. Unfortunately, when the sun came up on Sunday it melted very quickly. :-(

We were dug out by Sunday afternoon. Our State Highway guys did a great job. We also were able to flag down one of the roving guys with a blade on the front of his truck to do a couple of passes on the driveway. Then DH and DS got busy with the snow blower and the shovel. DD and I were on Christmas decorating and hot coffee/hot chocolate/hot tea patrol. :-)

You ought to see all of the big piles of snow in the parking lots. To quote DS, "Epic"!

I don't have a picture to share with you as I kept forgetting to take one on Sunday. I'll try to take one tomorrow morning before going into work. And hopefully I'll have time to post tomorrow night.

I haven't done much stitching though I do have some pictures to share of what I've done over the last few weeks. And yes, I actually finished something! Wahooo.....

Yoyo, I'm sorry but I don't have a post for this month for the TUSAL. Almost no stitching has been done in December, 2009. :-(

Just returned from taking DD and her best friend out to dinner. DS decided to stay home (smart guy). I now need chocolate or a nice cold beverage!!! They are both great girls but can they talk! LOL!!!

DH is out goofing off for the night. Actually (this is for Anne of the Cape Stitcher), he's playing Bridge. LOL!!!

Back soon...

Wow, 17 inches, that's not bad. We have that from time to tiome as well and then I'd be happy about a snow blower. So far DH and I always clear the driveway with our shovels. That's when I realize how huge our driveway is, lol.
Have a wonderful Christmas Day with your family.

Very glad to say we are having warm weather (at least compared to you). A friend lives in Baltimore and shared her pictures of the blizzard and 20" of snow on Facebook. Brrr. I'll stick with So Cal, thank you very much.

Stay safe, stay warm.
