Like a big portion of the United States, snow came to the prairie early Tuesday morning. We awoke to a winter wonderland. We, were, however, lucky that the predicted ice did not materialize and so all we have is snow . . .
But lots of snow. The back patio at about noon on Tuesday.
It, of course, snowed all day -- sometimes so heavily that we had a hard time seeing the houses across the street.
Our back patio at 5:30 Tuesday evening! If it continues to snow -- we may lose our chairs!!!
The pond at noon on Tuesday . . .
And at 5:30 on Tuesday . . .
If you live where it snows, you should make sure that whatever pet you own is taller than predicted snowfalls! At noon, there wasn't much of Oliver above the snow!!!
Oliver definitely is not happy!!! So unhappy in fact that he got "stuck" in the snow. Husband Jim had to pick him up and turn him around!!!
Our front porch -- covered and screened and still eerily snow covered!
And what does one do on a snowy day -- cook, of course. A wonderful beefy vegetable soup for lunch. Dinner will be a lentil and sausage soup. Apple crisp for dessert!!!
