Crazy Winter

So.   We had a little weather here.  

Late Saturday night it started raining.  Temps hung out around freezing and early Sunday morning we had a beautiful snow - huge flakes falling straight down.   Then late morning, the snow turned to slush.   It snowed snowcones for hours.   It was so wet it was puddling - the ducks loved it.   By afternoon, we had 3 inches of mushy slush everywhere. I watched this flowerpot collect the snow and slush all day on Sunday, the snow piling in straight lines up on the tiny edge.

Late Sunday afternoon, the slush turned to snow again and we got a lot more snow - that melted into the slush.


At the end of the day, things looked like this.  It was magical.

Then the temps dropped and the wind blew and in the morning, it still looked just like this.   Snow was frozen in globs all over everything.

It was just too darn cold to go outside so you'll have to imagine the blue and white twinkling world we had as that deadly Arctic Vortex slammed us.   We and the animals stayed indoors for the next two days until the temps climbed to the double digits again.  I've never been so happy to see 11 degrees above zero.
