Waiting for the Snow Storm



It has been a snowy winter so far. We have received about 15 inches since the beginning of December. We are due for 10 inches tonight and tomorrow and expect two more snow storms in the next seven days. I have to pick up my son from college in Duluth this weekend and hope to make the 9 hour round trip during a break in the weather.





We finished decorating our Christmas tree tonight. Christmas cards are started and most of the shopping is completed. We are looking forward to visits from family soon to come.

I wish many happy and memorable days ahead for you and the ones your love as the new year approaches. Happy Holidays! - Chris

Have a safe trip picking up your son! Sounds like you're going to have plenty of family time with your weather situation. Be safe!

Your winter pictures look beautiful. Be careful driving to get your son, I hope the weather clears up enough so it won't be too hazardous. Love your blog and will check back with you.

Be safe driving to Duluth to pick up your son! The fresh snow seems so peaceful...looking from inside the house out :)

Happy Holidays!

Your pictures are so lovely. You probably always have a white Christmas! Here in Texas, people put up giant inflated plastic snowmen on their yards ... but you have the real thing! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and new year.
