    Wisconsin has arrived.

    Wisconsin (or Vermont, or Michigan.....) has arrived in northern Arkansas.
    6 a.m., four inches of snow on ground and still falling. I don't like.
    No pictures because I'm trying to pretend it isn't happening.

    shoulda stood in bed

    My intentions were good. Up early, cupa, a little visit here then go to church.
    No church today. Put on my Sunday best, got in pick-em-up but couldn't get up hill. Not just snow. There is an underlayment of ice. Snow must have fallen, then temps fell freezing early snow, then more snow on top. Stayin' inside and cozy today. Pics later. BTW, truck is parked on side of road about a 1/4 mile from house, hope no one hit is, control isn't good on the hill.

    You're welcome, Frank. The last snow came with an inch or so of rain mixed in so everything has a layer of ice. The body shops are doing a land office business. Stay warm and safe. ER's were also doing a booming business treating heart attacks after the last snow here.

    promised pic

    We get a taste of 'up nawth' most years. Some years we don't even notice winter being here. Right now, my big concern is someone hitting my truck on that curve/hillside.
    My son knows about the heart attack thing. Shoveling driveways can be deadly.
    Me? Fuzzy slippers, flannel robe and a cupa.

    Last month, we had our first snow since 76. This one was almost two snowflakes thick. Got ALL THE WAY down to 28. The hills got almost an inch or so, they sure were pretty.

    Frank sent it a few miles north to Missouri.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
