***UPDATED!*** Wordless Wednesday - Blizzard or not, here I come!



So, since I live in Michigan and The Weather Channel is freaking out over all of this snow, I thought I'd do this week's Wordless Wednesday about that. I took a photo of a part of my backyard on Tuesday at 5:30pm, just as the snow began to fall in big, fluffy, sporadic flakes. I will take another in the morning of the same part of the yard to compare just how accurate these guesstimators meteorologists really are.

UPDATE: No big blizzard here! Yes, we got snow. Yes, it was layered with ice on and off through the night. The wind was blowing terribly, so maybe the majority of the snow blew into the lake??? There's more falling as I type this, so maybe it'll pile up throughout the day... the great predictors say 2-4" today... I'll bet it's closer to 10"! LOL


TOTAL BUST!!!
We ended up with about 4" of snow.

Take note of the knots and nails in the fence!
 






























So, there it is, I'll update as soon as I've had at least 2 cups of coffee and fed the kids something that resembles breakfasat.  STAY WARM!!!

I left Michigan (Muskegon) thinking I'd left blizzards behind, but would still get a little bit of snow here in Virginia. In the past two years we've had 3 blizzards, the last being just last week. Oh, the irony. ;)

Stay warm. While we don't have snow on the ground, it's 14 degrees here in Northeast Texas, and that's just not right! LOL
