Winter Storm

Here in SC we rarely have snow. When we do it is usually only a dusting on the ground. We may get an ice storm but our temperatures quickly rise above freezing and melts it. Of course, the damage is permanent.

We've been fortunate so far this year and have not seen ice or snow. A couple of years ago, however, we did. While I was busy in the house, hubby disappeared for a while and then asked me to look out the window. I couldn't believe my eyes. His creativity never ceases to amaze me. He had wrote (or I should say stepped) me a message in the snow large enough for airplanes going over to see.

I asked him how he got by without footsteps showing that connected the words. He just smiled and said he hopped over to the next word. You can see how he started his path from the patio in the pic above and below. He's a very funny guy.

Jonas had never seen snow or been in a snowsuit before. Normal temps can be around 50 here in the winterhere. He could hardly move and didn't want to walk in his new get-up.

When he did, he couldn't stay upright.
Notice the pansies in the background. It's amazing how they bounce right back after ice has covered them.

I think Jonas started to enjoy a little of the hooplah,-- eventually!

I hope those without power has had it restored. I have been praying for you.
Have a happy weekend! Do something fun.

What a romantic guy your husband is.
We had a little snow this week. I love to see it come, but I'm glad we don't have to shovel it.
Your grandson looks adorable in his little snowsuit.

Dawn said...

That is so sweet! I love it.

I am always amazed at the pansies, even in Colorado, and what they can endure - the ones up by the house foundations can make it through the window.

Kelli said...

P.s. Thank you for the birthday wishes!

Your husband is an example to all the rest of us guys. No snow in Scottsdale however. Maybe I can dream us something special for Valentine's Day.

The first question many people have about links london one way links is why are they so important.If you links of london compared two websites that had exactly the links jewellery same content but one of them had one hundred one way links versus none on the other site links of london uk you would see that the site with one way links had a much better cheap links of london ranking with each search engine. links of london bracelet The primary reason for this is there is no reason for one site links of london charms to link to another without a reciprocating link other than that links of london watches site determines that the website is an authority on it's given niche links of london rings A one way link is when a website links to another site without links of london necklaces asking for a reciprocal link back.
