We had rain for most of yesterday with temps above freezing.  Today the temps are below freezing with wind and had some freezing rain earlier.  Suppose to get some snow tonight into tomorrow.  Glad we don't have to go anywhere for the next day or two.

Hi Mary, I wish we had a bit of your snow, two days ago we had 1 1/2 inches of rain, and a good bit of wind, thank goodness there were no leaves on the trees, the ground is so saturated and muddy. We finally had some freezing temps last night, enough I could walk in the back yard and pick up small branches from the yard. I hope you are able to get out and about. I am sending you a PM about the quilt, if you don't receive it. please let me know.

                                             Jo

I got the PM and have answered it.  The weather here is sunny but temps are still below freezing.  The sun is helping to melt what little snow we got and the rest of the ice.  The roads are clear and in good shape.  I have been out and about some last week.  Today is clean and put away day.

I went out a couple days after Christmas and took down the outside decorations, which mostly consists if greenery and bows and a couple of spot lights, I don't do the strings of lights anymore, I leave that to the neighbors. Everything was wet  and has to dry out and then I can pack it away. I have most of the indoor decor down except the mantles, I really, they will be cleaned off tomorrow. Every thing looks so blah for a while after the holidays, I love the decorations so much. Ours are very country.  Next year. wink

Cold and gray here today. The weatherman tells us that we will have snow tomorrow morning making driving not so good, I hope not I love the snow but not ice. Roads be treated starting around midnight tonight. I have a busy day planned tomorrow, but if it is that bad, I will wait until Tuesday. happy-flower

Take it easy, Joell.  I hate driving on snowy/icy roads, too.  The weather here is cold (in the 20's) but with sun shining brightly.  It is forecasted to get into the 40's later today.

I woke up this morning and ran to the window, and guess what?  No Snow!! So disappointed! Oh well, I got my running around done, I did see a flurry or two on the way home, It is going to be in the teens here tomorrow morning and warmer later in the week. Such strange weather, I should not complain, I feel so badly for those poor folks that have been affected bu the bad flooding, my heart and prayers go out to them.

Today we are getting rain----again as well as rain for tomorrow, and then Sunday, SNOW. We will see, if we do get snow, it should last for a while because all of next week the temps will be below freezing.

       Well, we finally got SNOW boy are we getting it. It is beautiful, but the heavy winds, not so much. The phone rang this morning and my Son said "I hope you are happy now"----I am . This is the first snow fall that we have had other than a few flurries that didn't amount to anything, the ground is now white an the snow is blowing. The wind can stop any time now.

We didn't get any of the snow much to hubby dismay (he loves snow).  We do, however, have temperatures in the teens or low 20's.  Good day to stay inside but alas we have to go out later today.

We received another round of snow last night, about 2 inches. The temp is 28 and snow is falling. I dont think we are going to do snow removal, it is going to turn a bit windy and that means drifting. The temps will be in the high 40's in a couple of days, and we don't need to go out, so no shoveling today.

We are enjoying my kind of winter weather in the Houston TX area. It is 65 and sunny. Tomorrow will be even warmer. We plan to take the canoe out. Or bicycle. Or whatever we do, it will be out of doors!

You can have my share of cold and snow, Joell. I don't mind sharing... sun

It was only 2 degrees here this morning with a chill factor of -17. It will start to warm up in the next couple of days. The snow has been very pretty and was our first of the season. I like the change of seasons, but I don't care of the bitter cold, but there again it will change in a couple of days.

Oh, Joell, I am sorry about the cold weather you are ?enjoying?  Come visit us. We were out paddling our canoe on the creek that runs thru Sugar Land. It was 70 degrees, blue sky, barely a slight breeze. Perfect winter weather.

Thank you for invitation, it sound lovely. We should warm up a bit in the next day and melting will begin. I have checked the extended weather for our area for the n month or so, it appears to be an ongoing things. I could use the time to do things inside, but it seems like the days pass quickly and I just don't have a lot on energy. happy-flower

We have a winter weather advisory for our area, this morning at 5:30 am it was raining, but has now turned to snow, we are expecting up to 3 inches in the next couple of days. The snow that is falling now is just beautiful, coming straight down, no wind blowing and fairly dense, things are turning white very quickly. Mother Nature is putting on her makeup.

  It has been snowing now for a couple of hours, and everything is just beautiful, the trees and shrubs  are all white as the snow is sticking to them, where was this during the holidays? Oh well, I can enjoy it just as much today.

It has been great here! We have been out paddling our canoe and soaking up our Vitamin D. It has been warm enough, long enough, that yesterday we saw our first alligator of the year!
