Just a couple of days ago, I was photographing and blogging about the green in my garden. Well, being midwesterners, we all knew winter wasn't over yet. A major snowstorm had been forecast for our area, and the meteorologists' predictions came true. It started raining here mid-day Saturday.
My son, daughter-in-law, and grandson came late afternoon and shared a dinner of taco soup and raspberry pie with ice cream; then the three of them played "Trivial Crack" on their phones - have you heard of it?
By the time they left, it was snowing in some areas of our city (not ours); they even saw a snowplow in the ditch on the way home. Now, doesn't that inspire confidence?!!
It was snowing before we went to bed; in fact, quite a lot. I took some photos in evening light; all was beautiful, peaceful and quiet:
Back to my story: We had quite a bit of snow when we went to bed, and it has continued to snow well into Super Bowl Sunday. Many churches cancelled services, including ours. It has been a quiet day, with intermittent trips outside to use the snowblower (twice already, need to do it again...), and let the dog out. By early afternoon there were approximately 10" of snow, with more coming down!
I am SO glad I have nowhere to go. This is staying home weather at its' finest. :)
It's a PERFECT afternoon for a cup of tea. I bought an electric tea kettle upon the recommendation of my daughter - I'm liking the ease of use.

Super Bowl Sunday has been a good day to stay inside and drink tea.
