Going out Like a Lion

Didn't March come in like a lion too? Anyway, that's us, with the 100% chance of snow. Reports are that we've had 8" so far, and it's only 8:30 in the morning. Nearly everything is closed...everything except my hubby's work. He works for the state and they have a no-close policy, no matter what.
This is our front door in the foyer. The snow swirls around and piles up in there. He had to shovel just to get out of the house.




When we were in the cities, we bought this very cute wreath of grapevine and Easter eggs. Since I had seen a
robin the other day, I decided it was time to hang it out by our newspaper box. Again, I was premature.
Callie and Lucy cannot understand why anyone would go out there...but hubby dug the vehicle out and headed down the street.











Meanwhile, back in the house, I am having coffee in the biggest mug I could find.

What a cute picture of Callie and Lucy. How far into spring (at least it says that on the calendar) do you usually get snow? We sometimes get one snowstorm in April but it melts before you can enjoy it. Headed out to freshen up some flower beds. Hope you have a good day Natalie.

Natalie,

I'll say a positive thought for you today that spring will hurry your way. Stay warm and cozy inside today.

OMG, I do not miss the snow. Wow, what a lot of shoveling for you guys! We are extremely humid here today and my sisters are coming from cold weather so they will probably flip with how hot it can get here in Florida. But NO snow.lol

I already packed all of my winter clothes away! I guess I was hoping it would be nice. It isn't too bad here in Lincoln- just very very light snow dust.

I am shadowing an OBGYN PA all afternoon. Should be interesting!

That snow piled up around your front door, makes me want to hibernate beneath the downy covers!

You know what I'm thinking!! Keep that coffee pot close!

Also....and not to be rude but a joke here and all in fun.....when you get that exchange student....be sure they are from somewhere equally chilly! I'm envisioning some exchange student from a tropical island somewhere freezing their tushes!

Yup, good reason to stay inside! I am in Mankato right now, waiting for good weather back in SD. I refuse to travel unless the roads are good. Much easier to stay put here and play with Mason, shop, read. I admit I plan on visiting a few quilts stores today!

Oh my gosh Natalie. You guys have been hit so hard this year. I hope you are all rewarded with a beautiful Spring and Summer.

Oh goodness... (that's all I can say).

Thankfully, that whole weather system missed us here in Iowa. Sorry you had to get caught up in it. Seeing all your snow makes me appreciate our nice weather even more.
