    Snowstorm

    Yea, yea, yea I know it is not turning but these pictures are the reason I didn't turn today. I was hoping to do a HF vase and try some dye's on it but spent the day digging out. We couldn't get out the back door at all and I had to brace myself and push the front door open. Snowblower did no good as it was so wet and heavy. I just finished and am dog tired so the HF will have to wait. First is the side of our house which faces North, next is the driveway, and the last is the back door.

    WOW!... all I can tell you it.... it could have been worse......... it could have been in East Tennessee...

    We're gearing up for tornadic winds here... they've predicted gusts up to 70 mph... we're in kind of a valley and winds get pretty intense here... fortunately, no snow...

    You realize that SNOW is a four letter word to me.

    WOW is right, no offense, but I sure hope that weather maker emptied herself, if that's coming our way, I might just cry...probably 'will' hit us, since I put the snowblower and shovels away a week ago

    Get some rest!

    I guess we dodged that bullet here in KC. Been raining a whole lot, but I'll take it compared to what you got.

    Get some rest Bernie. Looks like it will all be gone tomorrow or Sunday judging by the forecast.

    Thanks. If it hadn't been so wet and heavy I would have used the snow blower but with a shovel it felt like each one weighed a 100 lbs.
