Winter Came!

It started snowing yesterday, and by 4:00 this morning we had 14".  Why do I know what it was like at 4:00?  Because a transformer blew (loudly) and the power went out-for 5 hours!  It bumped first, and I decided to get up and make coffee, then the power went out for sure.  The coffee was just done brewing so I put it in a carafe to keep it hot and waited....  The nice thing I found out is that my Kindle Fire makes a great flashlight-better than regular flashlights!  Came on at 8:00.  Stan went out at 6:00 to start shoveling.  It took him a while what with resting and eating and breaking the shovel handle!  The neighbor finally came over with his little tractor to help him finish.

Enjoy a little Montana snow:

6:00 in the morning.

8:00-after the power came back on.

I'm done already-I sure wish I could talk my winter loving hubby into moving south!


  1. Oh my goodness, what a winter wonderland!

  2. It is beautiful, Faye, but a stinker to drive in. They've been plowing furiously but their resources are limited since we never get this much snow.

  3. WOW -- and it's only mid-November. Beautiful to look at, but I'm really looking forward to my first winter without the white stuff!! Time to start planning for your trip to Mazatlan I'd say!

  4. Well I guess I should not complain at our few inches but I think we might be snowed in.


I'm so happy to hear from you! I do moderate the comments before they post just in case...
