It snowed all day Saturday. It started in the early morning hours. By noon we were socked in. It finally ended sometime that night.We awoke on Sunday to clear skies and all sorts of Winter goodness.
Sunday morning- 7am- On my way out to get the paper. Snow drifts up past my knees. And so cold.
Sunday afternoon- around 1pm. The Fella and I head out with our shovels. We were met by a big green tractor driven by our neighbor. He helped us dig out.
Sunday night- 7pm. We enjoyed some yummy leftover chili. I got up early on Saturday morning and made both chili and lasagna- the latter is for dinner tonight.
