About Me

My photo
I am a retired English teacher and department head, the mother of three, grand mother of three, and have been married to the same man for 42 years. I subscribe to Dr. PM Forni's concept of Civility. I was born in South Philadelphia and grew up in the 'burbs. I love soft pretzels and cheesesteaks, the Phillies, the Eagles, and San Diego. I love being Mom, Aunt Kathy, Nona Kathy, and Teacher. I spend a lot of time in my gardens in the spring and summer, and in the winter I plan what I'm going to plant. I also am an avid reader and photographer.

The weather Outside is Frightful ♫

Di at "Blue Ridge Girl" has declared that it is now winter.  And to prove it....here's our patio...


And Richard going to get yet more wood to keep us warm...
And the County plow getting stuck!

And the view from my window...

Feel better, everyone?  I know I do.  I think I'll go outside to roll around in all that white stuff!

I really prefer snow when there are Christmas lights. :-) It is 76 here and it feels cool after the last week.

Wow indeed. Just let us know if it melts. LOL

George said...

Thanks, Kathy, this is just what I needed to feel cooler.

I've been going through all my snowmageddon photos to remind myself why I shouldn't complain too much about the heat...at least we don't have to shovel it. Stay cool!

Cheryl said...

I'll take the heat!

I'll have to remind my daughter in Chicago of these winter photos. It's sweltering over there too. I wish I could send you some of our Hawaiian trade winds.

My grandkids asked which I preferred. Did I like snow or hot sun? I think I like to adapt to what ever the weather gods are throwing at us. I stay inside if I can when it is hot and when it is cold.

I do think you photos are a great reminder of another extreme in the weather.

I do feel somewhat better. Geez, we never have snow like that. We barely have any snow. I think I would love it for at least just once.
Enjoyed.

I remember it well, but then we were complaining of the cold and wishing for summer. : )

Such a tricky girl you are, Kathy! Thanks for the chill...it reached a couple hundred miles north and reduced our temps by nearly 20 degrees today!

Amy said...

Great pics! You really got dumped on!

I hope you're all hangin' in there, keeping cool!

I started a new blog which has been kepping me busy: http://amyisdisabled.blogspot.com/
