And so it begins . . . Part 2

I knew the weather was too good to last.  The weather witch was right - the first storm of
season arrived as predicted.
This was the view from my office window this afternoon

And so it begins . . .  Winter.  BAH

Within a very short time after the snow began there were multiple fender benders throughout town.  People seem to forget how to drive in the snow from year to year. You could see morons flying down the streets and then skidding and sliding through stop signs.  Sheesh

It is still snowing with some rain mixed in.  Just a perfect combo for a mess.

There is only one thing that could warm a cold, frosty heart on a day like this
- - - - -
Coming home to find a big box of Heavens to Betsy wool had been delivered.

That almost makes the weather tonight tolerable. 

I hope all my American friends have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day
filled with family and friends.


  1. Gosh, you're so right about the forgetting how to drive in snow. Why is it that people can't remember that ice is slippery? Really?

    I'm kind of dreading the whole winter thing. We're not that adept at doing all that hard work!! If you don't hear from me for many months...send reinforcements!!
    Have a great one!

  2. Kim, we're getting lots of snow over here too. It makes walking to work back and forth a bit of a misery. I'm really not a big fan of winter but I love the look of glistening snow in the sun or under full moon but as long as the road is clear.

    I hope that you stay safe on the road. Hugs, JB

  3. Hi Kim. . . Thank goodness we only have about 2 inches of rain which was enough. . . I love the snow only when I don't have to go anywhere.

  4. Hi Kim, Brrrr sounds cold.Just got back from the nursery and planted some hollyhocks.Thanksgiving tomorrow will be nice except were going to have rain. Cheri

  5. Oh Kim, bah can have the white stuff...UGH!
    REgardless, may you have a blessed holiday and stay warm!

  6. Any day would get better with a box of wool to open. The same things happen when it rains, people just don't know how to drive in it either.
    It looks pretty though.
    Are you sure you can't just pop in for dinner?
    I will be thinking of you.

  7. Ick, ick, and more ICK!! I do not like snow, I do not like it Sam I am.... And yeah - how do these people "forget" from the last time we had crappy roads that it's slippery?!! Like, hey - it was only 3 or 4 months ago!! Have fun playing in your new wool....I'm jealous. (Dressing's made and turkeys are stuffed...sure you don't want to join us???) ;o) Happy tomorrow to you....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  8. Snow here too! I am grateful we did not lose our power, as there is much to do to prepare for the Turkey Day celebration. I told my husband if worse came to worse, there was always peanut butter and jelly. Blessings from snowy Maine, Julie.

  9. Congrats to JR!

    I was visiting my parents this past weekend and they got 10" of snow so I already got hit by the white stuff. Just a couple of inches here at home but it is melting. I sooooooooo am not ready for this!

    Kim - come on down for dinner tomorrow. I have pumpkin cheesecake and pumpkin pie! Happy Thanksgiving to all!

  10. Oh no, not SNOW!!!
    We had loads of rain so that part of our yard was under water. Thank goodness that wasn't snow!!!
    Well, I hope you snuggled up with Millie and a mug of Whatever and enjoyed an evening of fondling the wool.

  11. We just got the rain thankfully. Where my daughter goes to school in NH they received a foot of snow.

  12. I second that BAH! lol! The first snow is usually pretty and enjoyed... but every time after that... ick! Have a great day playing with your new woolens!

  13. I third the Bah! Kim I can barely look at that snow. I am giving it a one-eyed shut kind of look. I don't want to see any of that white stuff here in MissouREE unless it is pretty little flurries that just dance around and don't cover the ground! I won't tell you that it is suppose to be 70 here today because that is crazy making too. I mean it is November and I would like a cool 55 degrees for Turkey Day please.

  14. Ughhhh, that looks miserable and cold!!! Maybe it will all melt?
