Yesterday the high temperature was 64 F.
My daughter-in-law was just lamenting that she just wanted "one good snow." She no sooner put that out to the universe when the snow prediction for today went from a half inch to well... we are at 5 inches at this point:
I used to hate snow days because I hate driving in the elements but now that I get to stay at home, I do enjoy it. My neighbors plow and dig me out and in return they request these:
So this morning I am baking and visiting our elderly neighbors and it is all good. This afternoon I will sew.

Have a wonderful day and if you are in the snow zone, stay safe and warm!
