Busy thread. Can't make a month anymore without going over 200 posts, so will start a new one.

We have a nice day.
Warm, 20║
Overcast, with snow later today.
No wind.

We are working on the cabinets for the big kitchen. Some are going to be delivered today so we have room to finish some more.

33░ (Wind Chill 27░)
Just got back from the last of the Christmas shopping.
Well we were out 3 hours...
Big stores are jammed... grocery and smaller places not so much.

Robyn's making a big lasagna for tomorrow's Family Christmas dinner.
Her Sister is making a big pot of spaghetti and meatballs.
Other Family members are pissed as we didn't do Turkey/Ham, but hey it's her house her rules...lol!
Plus we are starting at 1PM... the usual start time was around 6PM.
By the time everything got done and people filtered in from Church it could be 10PM before we got to the presents.
FAR too late for the little kids and us w/ an hour and a half drive home.
Again a few ticked off members but hey... can't please everyone.
Plus most of them will get back together Christmas Day anyway!

Our Son should be in from Iowa in a few hours.
He's staying w/ his girlfriend and we'll see him tomorrow and Saturday here for lunch.

Looks like the weather is trying to cooperate.
30░ and clear tomorrow.
Snow coming in Christmas Day thru Sunday.

Rusty take care of that diabetes!

Started snowing on the way back from Mankato. Went there to get refund on some plywood I bought couple weeks ago. It's at Menards & is now on sale so they give you the difference back. I netted $70.00.
Then paid for 5 more sheets because sale ends Sunday. I will pick it up next time I am in town with the pickup.

I don't know where they plan on putting more snow. Streets are narrow, parking lots are using parking spots to store the snow. Piles are 15 feet high. Banks along the streets make it hard to see cars coming.

Family can be tough to deal with at times but it sounds like you have it all under control. :)

15 feet!! Wow. That is scarey. It will take a long time for that to melt.

Glad you got the money back on the plywood.

We were suppoed to have partly sunny skies and no snow. You guessed it! No sun and we had more snow. Had to borrow a 4wd to get to the barn to feed 2 horses because the county had not salted and scraped like they were supposed to. Grrr

Real "Christmasy" snow this morning. Everything has about 4" of new white on it. Don't even know what our total is so far this year, but it is very close to a record amount for December.

SIL has today off, so I was going to help him string the wire in their new addition. That won't happen today. Still snowing, so plows won't be out.

We're looking at a Winter Weather Advisory here in Cincinnati.
And we are 'just' on the northern edge of the warning.
Snow should start here around 7-8PM.
2-3" by Christmas morning.
It's 29░ currently and shouldn't get much higher than 32░.
Hopefully it will be all snow.
No warning in Dayton so we should be OK as long as we get out and back before 10PM.
Plus it's all hwy driving and they have really been keeping up on the hwys.
They were brining as we were out yesterday.
Most of the snow is forecast for Southern IN and North-Central KY.
They are looking at 2-5" by morning.

No much by Bernie's standards but people freak out here in the snow.
Seems like they have to relearn to drive in it every year.
AND learn that SUV doesn't mean snowmobile! lol!

Still snowing. We got another inch since 9 AM.

More SUV's are in the ditch & crashes than any other vehicle.
The car companies advertise them going through anything. They never mention that they still have 4 wheels to stop like any other vehicle.

Got raining this early morning and no icy yet so I was in hurry to store before it hit icy later on...


This Afternoon: A chance of rain and snow. Cloudy, with a high near 37. Wind chill values as low as 28. Southwest wind around 7 mph becoming northwest. Chance of precipitation is 50%.

Tonight: Periods of freezing drizzle, possibly mixed with snow before 8pm, then a slight chance of snow between 8pm and midnight, then a slight chance of flurries after midnight. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 26. Wind chill values as low as 17. North wind between 7 and 11 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.

Christmas Day: Scattered flurries. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 31. Wind chill values as low as 16. North wind between 8 and 13 mph, with gusts as high as 18 mph.

I hope it will be first Christmas Day snow in history (never know it will be or not!)...

Well we did it. Mankato & Minneapolis set records for most snow in December. 33.4" at Minneapolis & over 36" for Mankato. This is on top of what we had in November. Mankato street department said the plows went out for the first time November 13th.

I'll get some pictures tomorrow.

Forecast for sunshine & cold for the weekend.

Merry Christmas everyone!!

Our weather was really strange yesterday. lol. Started out raining, then sleet, snow and heavy snow at that, then it quit. Then a little while later it started raining again with intervals of flurries. By late afternoon it all pretty much melted and we are back to patches of snow that have been around for awhile. lol.

Flurries occasionally today but mostly cloudy with temps in the low 20s. Decks and other untreated surfaces are icy but otherwise the going is good around here.

An odd building that caught my eye.

We had a fabulous snowfall all day for our Christmas, Friday. I finally felt like the year ended, like it should.

Early, that's a beautiful picture!

Ric, I love the rabbit!!

Pepper, cool building. If it's a home, it's a cozy one, LOL!

Bernie, a ''Santa'' snow for sure :o) You have a beautiful family and wonderful pictures.

The tree comes down today as there are a few needles falling every day. With the fires being reported here and there, I'm being safe. We'll tie it outside and I'll enjoy it till spring.

I want to wish everyone a blessed New Year & hope it's going to be even better for you than this year!

Our weather hear is in the 30's right now.. we have been jumping back & forth all week from temps in the 70's to this! Yesterday (Christmas day) our furnace died!! We are ok & asked our repair guy to come tomorrow..but he came today..bless his heart! We had just gone out to buy another little ceramic heater too as the inside temps weren't higher than 61!! He may not be able to fix it today but we are grateful he's here! ( we didn't want him to miss out on his Christmas & we are ok so it wasn't an emergency).

This pic here is more of bare trees than the buildings. The gray place is an old and looks like abandoned church. The one on the corner is an old house that I can't remember if it looked abandoned or not. It may well be.

Cajun, the horses will be fine, won't they? I remember having to get out in all kinds of weather to feed the animals in Manila, UT. 4 goats, lots of chickens, 2 sheep, 3 horses, several geese. I kind of miss it, in a weird way. I hated being there but loved the times alone with the animals.

Cindylove, I honestly thought about you many times, wondering if you were coming back. Welcome back, LOL! Wow, aren't service guys great sometimes! I hope he's able to get it fixed. 61░ will be colder later even with little heaters! Do you have a gas stove so you could light the burners?

Oh Adina, that is the cutest picture!! I love his Mickey Mouse wrapping paper!!

Ric, ROTFL over the little beard!!! He would be a wonderful mini Santa Don!!

Pepper, there's something about an empty house. I love them, but am sorry that they just eventually fall down.

Cindylove, that's the greatest excuse to move that I've ever heard, LOL! 4 hours and needing gas! That is amazing to me!

Cajun, you are just not having a good winter are you?

Celia, DD has the goats, horses, chickens and one duck. That's how she feels. It's her alone time.

Well, we took the Christmas tree out and tied it in the garden. Cleaned up the needles and I just got started on the house. All of Christmas is packed away for next year. I'm dusted, and vacumed again for the third time. The carpet should be pretty clean by now! Plus DH shampooed it right before Christmas so we're good to go all winter.

It was nice, so I re-scooped paths wider too. Sure felt good to get moving again!

Elena, I am dreaming of the bayou with every flake that falls. LOL It was still snowing this morning but finally quit and we saw the sun for just a little bit. No snow for a few days now and I think it is supposed to warm up a bit. It will surely be welcome. A friend went on his 4 wheeler with a blade and scraped the road up to the barn for us. We were able to get to all the horses today.

I will be on my own with the feeding and watering tomorrow because DH has his heart cath in the morning. I'll stay home and get everything done and then get somebody to give me a ride to the hospital so I can pick him up. It will be a busy day and a nerve wracking one. Of course, I would rather go with him in the morning but it can't be.

# Tonight: Mainly clear skies. Low 27F. Winds SSW at 5 to 10 mph.
# Tomorrow: Partly cloudy skies in the morning will give way to cloudy skies during the afternoon. High 48F. Winds SW at 5 to 10 mph.
# Tomorrow night: Cloudy during the evening. A few showers developing late. Low near 35F. Winds S at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 30%.

We had a good Christmas, although there were a few teary-eyed moments as we all keenly felt the loss of Rachelle. There was definitely a face or two (Pau's, also) missing in our family unit this year.

We managed to get some good group photos, although we will have to "photoshop" two prints together to get everybody in one picture. Next year we need to hire a pro to come in and take the group photo! LOL My daughter took this photo.

Love those family pics.

I am a bit jealous of the warm temps.

It was 14* here this morning. I am trying to get all the work done so I can get to the hospital. Got the biggest part of it done here at the house. Now to go across the mountain. I am waiting for my water carrying backpack to dry along with my jacket. A gallon of water spilled in my BP so I have been out in the cold with a wet back but it cannot be helped. I am begging for Spring to come quickly. I woke up in the night with HORRIBLE stomach cramps and was near to passing out before they quit. I was able to get a couple hours of sleep but I am afraid to eat or drink much. I had a bit of Tang and a few crackers.

I'll be lazy and just say "ditto" to what BP has said. She always comments so nicely! :o))

Adina; your pictures of Nicholas always make me smile! :o))

I am feeling much better. Still a bit touchy but not painful. That happens to me every 3 or 4 months. Just out of the blue. Never lasts long but it is excrutiating.

It warmed up just a bit today and the sun was welcome and so beautiful. Cold as out there now. I need to get another tarp up on the goat house.

Love the pics of the DGS, Adina. Looks like he enjoyed the snow.

Nice flowers Pep. The white and yellow really pop against the greenery. Good job.

9░ with a high of 36░
Fog: Visibility: 0.2 miles
Today: Partly sunny. Areas of dense fog in the morning. Patchy fog late in the afternoon. Patchy freezing drizzle late in the afternoon. High in the mid 30s. South wind 10 to 15 mph.

Cajun, (((Big Hugs))) What happened? I hope you're better now and not getting any Crud.

Adina, ROTFL!!! Are you sure Nicholas felt any snow? He's such a cutie! Aww, a snow baby!

Bernie, being busy just means a lot more time to be busy. It doesn't seem like time is going very fast for you. The work is a welcome alternative to sitting in front of the TV all day.

Mau, I'll continue to comment :o) Have a relaxing New Years Eve!

Rusty, we have that chance of rain this afternoon. Wow! I think most of your snow is going to melt!

Pepper, you have a nice eye for arranging! I love the whole thing too! The yellow is what makes it nice!

Cajun, I wish I had an answer for your ailment. Do you eat anything different at those times? I'm glad you're feeling better now. (((Big Hugs)))

My oldest Grandson is on his way to the hospitol for tubes in the ears and adenoids out. I've been waiting for this for a year. I wish Dr.s weren't so held back on decisions. He's been talking thru his nose and has had constant stuffy noses. Plus, he's been snoring for more than a year. Kids aren't supposed to snore!

Rusty: your weather sounds like ours--we will have a 30 degree drop in the high temperature between Friday and Saturday!
Pepper: that's a nice arrangement. I can see why you wanted it for yourself! :o)
Cajun: so glad you are feeling better! What does the doctor say about those periodical bouts of the stomach cramps? That doesn't sound "normal" to me to have those every few months.
BP: hope all goes well with the DGS' surgery this morning. It's hard on everybody when a little guy isn't feeling well so I hope he recovers quickly!

It is now 7:05 a.m. here. and still dark because it is raining. The current temp. is 44F.
# Today: A steady rain early...then remaining cloudy with a few showers. High 47F. Winds SSE at 10 to 20 mph. Rainfall near a quarter of an inch.
# Tonight: Cloudy. Low 44F. Winds SSE at 10 to 20 mph.
# Tomorrow: Cloudy skies with a few showers later in the day. High near 65F. Winds S at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of rain 30%.

I tried 3 times to get Friday to go outside but he wasn't about to stick his nose out in the rain! LOL

See all the peoples in New York has snow up to 24 inches of snow... Once I was living in Buffalo, NY and they told me about how deep up to 1 story snow fill up so I move out of New York to California in 1985 (live there for 3 months homesick!)...

Isn't it amazing how we all have such diverse weather. The world is an amazing place.

Glad they are finally getting the tubes put in and the adnoids out. Must be miserable for a little guy to have such troubles.

No offense to NY but I wouldn't want to live there. The snow here is bad enough. LOL I really don't know how you guys survive it for months on end. I would be in the nut house.

I am feeling better. I know I had some bleeding because of the stool color. I have stomach ulcers and I guess that is what is going on. It doesn't seem to be food related so much as stress. Not much I can do about that at the moment. I have wondered about IRB. We do not have medical insurance so going to the doctor has to be an emergency for us. DH is having lots of health problems right now so I will just have to take care of myself and pray. God is able.

It will be a better day today. The sun is shining!!!!!!

This is an old coal chute and storage shed by my house.

Cajun there's a bug running around here w/ the same symptoms you had.
Felt almost like food poisoning but w/ a slight fever.
Hit me hard a few nights ago.
I drank a ton of the milder Gatorade.
Knocked it out fast.

The winter storm finally got here. It's supposed to rain all night and well into tomorrow, then there's a chance of snow in the evening and a freeze down to 25. I hope it stops raining long enough for me to put out the heat lamps. If it snows it might break the bulbs if I put them out early.

Henry, glad that bug didn't have it's hooks in you for long. I have had this stuff evry 3 or 4 months for years now. With the ulcers, the stomach virus hits me double hard when I do get it but I think this stuff is different. It seems to be more stress related. But I am fine now other than a bit of soreness. I am back to eating like always. ( too much ) LOL

It was beautiful today!!! Got up over 40* and the sun was shining to beat the band. I was able to work without my jacket and sweat shirt most of the day except on the mountain where the ponies are. It is never warm up there.

DH said it is supposed to rain tomorrow but be warm again. I'll take it!!

Pepper, I love your arrangement! Such pretty colors! Yikes on the cold!!!

Ric, sorry you were sick. Did Robyn get it, too? I hope not.

Cajun, I catch everything that goes by. DH is strong as an ox and rarely gets sick. Glad you're doing better now.

Warm with temps near 70* today. Sun peeked out every now and then and the wind was pretty strong. Had to make sure everything was secure before you went out or you would lose it. Even had an older woman hold on to me as I helped with her groceries because the wind was so strong.

Hi guys! I'm glad you enjoyed the pics! Nicholas started to say ba-ba and ma-ma...you'll see him soon in some videos I made. I don't know what we will do when they will leave...only 10 more days !
It's freezing here ! It's been 10F last night...double brrrrr!LOL
I cooked meals for New Years Eve these last days : the turkey jelly, beef and veggie salad and peanut ice-cream. Today I have more to cook : meatballs, turkey and chicken sour soup, fruit salad and deviled eggs. I'm working today until 12:30 p.m., then I'll have all the time to cook. I hope to find some time to take a nap so I can stay late tonight and get up in time for work tomorrow morning...I'm working all day!
Sending 2 albums if you want to see more pics and videos :

Hi all! I'm trying to catch up. I read, answered in my head and enjoyed the photos.

Grandson went thru surgery well and was home in a few hours. By evening he hadn't had any Tylenol, and by the next day, when we went out, was happy as can be. I look for much improvement! They'll check his hearing next week. He had so much fluid, his eardrum wasn't even moving.

Well, we had a bit of everything yesterday, .23in of rain, a little snow, winds gusting to 46 mph, and then a low of 23.9. It just made it up to 32.5 at 9 am. That's the coldest it's been in the 3 1/2 years I've been here. of course that beats the -15 in my home town of Calgary.
