Well, just as I didn't think it could get any colder I thought I would show you what it says on my temperature gage which I keep on my desktop. This is from our closest weather station in Manassas which isn't too far down the road. It said 'minus' at four minutes to seven this a.m. I can't ever remember it being a minus before. I wonder what the weather man will have to say this morning.
It snowed all day here on Saturday. Gregg and I just battened down the hatches and didn't go anywhere that day. It was lovely watching those big dry, fluffy flakes come down for a while and then you could see it turn into a much finer snow with a lot of moisture in it. When it finally stopped it didn't leave as much as a few weeks' ago, maybe six inches and it wasn't too bad shoveling the driveway yesterday morning. Gregg did that and he said it was real easy.
Yesterday we went up to our local bagel place and got a breakfast sandwich, and then went over for a walk around Walney Pond and took lots of lovely snow photos. I'll be sharing those later on when I have them organized. Just what we all need, more snow photos right? Again it was real easy to get around. We felt the crunch of the snow under the tires but the nice man with the snow plow had been through the neighborhood to make life a little easier for us all and once we got up to the main road everything was free and clear.
Our son called up to see how we were doing. He has a day off on Thursday and he will be coming over, which is always nice. Our daughter-in-law is busy going to school. She is a hardworking lady as she also has a couple of dozen piano students she teaches and sings at her church and one other on a Sunday.
I also had a nice chat with my niece in Germany. She got a new job a couple of weeks' ago and she said everyone is so nice and friendly, which was good to hear and she seems to be enjoying it very much. Way to go Hanna!
I hope you all have a good week ahead and I want to thank you for stopping by all the time and making those comments, which are always fun to read.
