Brrr!  Gonna get cold here too, but not that extreme!

Snow Forts!  Love it!  Did you ever do the igloo thing with cardboard milk cartons?  Pack it in the carton and build an igloo!  Fun!

I suppose you could use the plastic ones too, just cut the top off.

Yes we did use various containers but mostly we just cut the blocks of snow with our hands or rolled up "packing snow" into balls that we then shaped into blocks.

We got more snow today. This was the "packing" kind which is good for making forts and snowmen.

This photo is looking through a window in the hallway on the second floor of our house. The silhouetted plant in the foreground on the right is Parsley.
 

The next two are looking down the street.

I think I see you at the end of the sidewalk happy hi Yes, a snow blower just might be in order.

This view is from the back, looking toward the sun room with the plant lights on. That's my aloe bed in front of the a/c surround, custom Bob-Built with cats in mind. It has cat steps up the side on the left, a "catwalk" all the way around, and a roofed-over, carpeted cat space under the window.

From the back side yard, looking toward the house. This is our juniper, hanging over the fence, with the Bob-Built, cat-friendly firewood bin in the background. The scaffolding in the back center is for the Gulf Fritillaries -- it supports the passion vine plants.

I'm glad all the predictions we were getting from all the weather services about a horrific ice storm never materialized. We ended up getting a good, long, rainy soak, instead. I'd rather have snow, too... it's supposed to be winter.

I saw that picture yesterday as well, lol! And I feel the same way! (As we have record-breaking highs going on in this area... Got up to 75 yesterday in the city!)

It has been warm enough in the Atlanta area that I am having to turn on the air conditioner some days. That is insane in January! Normally January temperatures are in the 30-50's!

That doesn't bode well for 2017. 2016 was the hottest year in recorded history. We certainly don't want to beat that record. Shocked

Us too... And I agree that this doesn't bode well... Either we're going to get slammed with winter or summer's going to be worse than last year....

Spring seems to be so far, far away.  In and around my house today this is what it looks like.

At the end of the driveway.



Looking west down the street.



The shed wearing a hat of snow.




Furnace inlet and outlet.



At least the driveway is clear ... oops spoke to soon, just looked outside and it is snowing yet again.

TD, I'm pretty sure some of that snow is supposed to be here in Pennsylvania. It feels very strange to not have it. Sorry about the delivery error(s).
