Heavy Snow

 Woke up this morning at 5am. The room was a lot brighter than usual, Peeked through the blinds and recoiled at the blanket of snow. Wow. looked amazing, but how on earth was I going to get to work? Not another bus nitemare journey! Arghhhh! lol  Nope. Thankfully. After a while I got a message along with the rest of the town, not to go anywhere unless the journey was absolutley necessary. The local news on the radio was full of Lorry's at a standstill, roads closed and buses being cancelled! The last bit made me say "phew"! out loud as I made my toast and tea.

I decided that I would tidy up, then make a pot of homemade soup. I put the fire on, woke my wee treasure then I had breakfast gripped by the latest weather news. Even though I was off, I was still concerned for other people who had to be out there. Snow Is beautiful to look at and play in but for me, personally, I don't like travelling in it. No thanks. It's far too scary for me.

Changed the bedding and did 3 loads of washing. There was enough there to frighten the french! lol. I did something I haven't done for so long, I went for a lie down at 1pm until 3.30pm and I felt so much better for it. I felt guilty for not being at work but this was the second day in a row when these decisions were taken out of my hands. I played a game with my wee treasure and we had a laugh which was nice then I found myself lost on here adding pics to my profile and I have thoroughly enjoyed It. As I fast approach the 1000 mark on the counter, I'm loving J-Land so much. Take Care. Back Soon. xx

We have had no snow.  I would like to have seen some because our dogs love it and I would have liked to have seen the look on our cat's face seeing the white stuff for the first time.

I don't blame you one bit.  I'd hibernate if it snowed down here in my part of Texas.  Those wee ones are fun to play with.  Hey, have you ever heard the old joke about Weebles?  (the little round bottomed families and animals for little kids to play with?)  There was a horrific storm.  The wind blew and gusted and pieces went flying off the barn.  The windmill blew over.  Terrible!  The old farmer looked out his window during all of this and saw his bull just gently swaying in the breeze.  So after the storm he had to run out and ask the bull how he could do that.  The old bull said "We bulls wobble, but we don't fall down."   -  Barbara

We didn't get any snow.  Well a few flakes now and again.  If you blinked you missed it. I think it is good advice to say at home if you can, but how do people manage if they have to go out?? Glad you're enjoying your time here in J-Land.  Me too.
Take care
