It was beyond cold last night. Went out to make sure the chickens were ok and that the dogs had plenty of water and it began to sprinkle (rain). They were calling for snow but not until later in the week. With all the wind that we had gotten over the weekend, the leaves continue to fall and I swept off the sidewalk. The little rain we were getting seemed to "stick" to the sidewalk (mind you this is wooden) so I figured I would sprinkle a little ice so that our family would not have any slips or sliding by morning. Had a nice cozy evening with the family watching some football and surfing on budget101. Went to bed with warm thoughts of a cozy blanket. Woke up this morning and made some breakfast for the kids and hubby when my youngest daughter came running down the hall - screaming that we had SNOW!!!! Oh My!!! It was gorgeous!!! Just enough to cover the ground and make it glisten Took the kids to school and let me tell you - the mountains were so beautiful!! It was as though God had taken a salt shaker and sprinkled a little love on them!!
It is cold but sometimes the beauty of nature just makes it all better!!
