Okay, Mother Nature, this isn't funny anymore!! We got 17 more inches of the white stuff in this storm... we have drifts around our house that are close to 5 feet high... there is nowhere to put any more snow!!! The snowbanks are incredibly high, the driving is dangerous because the visibility at intersections is so poor...Have I said that I'm tired of winter??? The entire city was pretty much closed down today- Gov't offices were closed, as were the schools, malls, banks, etc. Even the Police Dep't. was running on just a skeleton crew - thats a rarity.
I am grateful that my Grandfather had the foresight to purchase land high on a hill for the family farm... I'm very much afraid there will be bad flooding again this spring... there is so much snow -more than last year, I think... and we have had no winter thaws this year, to take it down a bit.
On another note, today is Ian's birthday- that would be our oldest son - 31 today! Wow! Where does the time go? This is the beginning of what I call "Birthday Week"... our 3 children all have their birthdays within the next 2 weeks. Mark is next, turning 20, followed by Laura who hits the magic age of 18!! I'm feeling old...
Here's Ian with fiancee Tiffany.
I have put in a fair bit of time today, trying to finish up my cross-stitch. It's almost done-just working on the borders now. Hopefully I'll post a photo tomorrow....
