Because of this 'wonderful winter wallop', we have at least 15 inches of snow here in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, and still anticipating more. Haven't had snow like this for at least 5 years, so I guess we need to be thankful. Hard to be that when you have difficulty getting out your front door!
Right now in Fargo, ND, we've still got around 18 inches of snow from the fist of the Christmas blizzard that was driven in our gut. Though we're trying to keep the apartment as tightly closed as possible to keep out the -33 temperature with wind chill going on out there. It's not working too well.
I had to scrape ice off my windshield this morning. The strawberries were just starting to come in too. There is a rumor on the weather stations that we might see the white stuff in the sky Friday night. I will probably stay up to watch for that! I remember it actually snowing in Florida in the late 70's. I know - everyone else is sick of snow - sorry!
"Nature always wears the colors of the spirit." -
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
It is so cold that I do not know how much longer I can bare wearing my kilt outdoors!
Hang in there. My Grandfather said that a true Scot never saw fit to put on trousers! I always suspected the weather may have been a bit milder in Scotland. Since my ancestors cane from the Highlands, one would not think so.

Cloudy with sunny period, High of 1C (34F). Praying for NO freezing rain. I have a crazy hill I have to climb (driving) on my way to work and not too sure if I'd be able to make it in those conditions.....
