Winter Wonderland

First of all, i want to thank all of you that have posted for such a warm welcome to blogland. Your kind words have warmed my heart on this cold, cold, day! Thanks to the wonderful, kind Lori Karla for introducing me on her blog. As most of you know she is a very special gal and i am thrilled to count myself as one of her friends.

One thing that Lori and I share is that we are both NorthEast Ohioans. Which means we are in the part of the state that Mother Nature likes to have fun with! She sends us much lake effect snow from Lake Erie, in fact she was so kind as to drop of 7 inches on Sat and plans more for us today. Along the way she decided to throw us into the deep freeze that is hitting some of the country. Today is the warmest of the next few days at a whopping 6 degrees. Above is a pretty view of the snow from my back patio, sure is pretty to look at but no fun to drive in or shovel!

Also shown is my interpretation of a winter wonderland. Can you imagine wearing a hat like that on a cold snowy day! Stay warm wherever you are.
