Today we made more gingerbread cookies, dough for the spritz cookies I plan on baking Wednesday for E and T's school parties, and 3 different kinds of bark. Then I drank a bunch of wine, but that has nothing to do with this post.I
Also, the weather here has been really bizarre this winter, and this storm is no exception. It seems like the snow we have been having is wetter than usual. I know this sounds strange as snow is made up of water. But some snow is lighter and snowier than other. The snow we've had this year has been mixed with freezing rain. It is perfect for packing and we have already made a snow fort and snowman, but it would be nice to have just regular light feathery snow.
Last night it snowed from around 10PM to 10AM and then it did nothing. Freezing rain started around 3PM today which quickly changed to sleet then to snow then to freezing rain. I am not sure what it is doing now. I am glad, however that I am not working this weekend!Here are some pictures I just took standing on my porch. The first is without a flash and the second is with a flash. I hope wherever you all are it is warm and you have a lot of Xmas cookies to eat.
I just read my hus this post and I commented "isn't that strange?"meaning the way the second photo came out reflecting the snowfall. And he said yeah "It is strange that people put their pool a mile away from their house!" Really it is only 120 feet away from the house. I know this because I measured the distance when we were trying to get satellite Internet. I wish it was summer and I was complaining about having to vacuum the pool!
