  4. Winter in NE Oklahoma is not much better. A little less snow, but getting tiresome nonetheless. Looking forward to spring, here.

    1. And how green and beautiful it must be because of all that rain, Barbara! Would love to see England, someday!

  6. It's certainly felt like an old fashioned winter in MI with all the snow. It has made for some lovely pictures. I hope you are enjoying it too. Stay cozy with your beautiful afghans!

    1. Kim, your MI winters are even colder than ours. I do stay cozy while working on my crochet projects. Still plugging away on the ripple for my grandchild. It's taking me quite a bit longer to make, because I have to keep changing the stitches.

  8. Winter in Kansas looks a lot like winter in Missouri! It is 3 decrees here this morning. I'm so done with this cold! At least we're not supposed to get as much snow this weekend as they originally predicted. Stay warm! Twyla

    1. Yes, I think we have pretty much the same weather up and down this state line. I admit that I really like winter. But I will be ready for spring come mid March.

  9. About the same in IL too! Enough already!!

    1. This picture would probably work for a lot of the midwest. :-)

  10. Did you know, I once lived in the snow of Kansas? My husbands' company transferred us there for several years. I can still remember how it was to shovel snow off the driveway...

    1. Shoveling snow is not my favorite thing to do.

    1. We haven't had as much snow as we sometimes do. So I guess I can't complain.

  12. I thought about snapping photos of our recent snowfall, but after shoveling nearly 15" of it off our driveway on Tuesday night, I'm done with it. I'm so ready for Spring!

    1. It can stay winter a bit longer. I'm enjoying it! :-) But I'll sure be ready for spring come March.

  13. This looks quite familiar! Are you enjoying our Kansas winter?
    I am on snow day 3 today. May have to get out somehow today,
    restlessness is going to set in soon.

    1. Lynne, you have soooo much more snow than we do. You Michiganders are a much hardier lot than we are.

  16. Snowy and cold here, too. But our snow is rapidly turning grey and slushy. Grateful for sunshine today. Keep cozy!

    1. It's always beautiful when the sun breaks through on a cold day.

  17. The photo tells it all. Normally we would have that too. Not sure why NE is getting missed this year. Maybe because God knows I can't handle both? (snow and cold?)

    1. Michaele, you do seem to be in a little pocket of no snow. Enjoy that, because you know it won't last. :-)

  18. We've had quite a winter everywhere, haven't we? I can't wait until the first buds pop through the ground.

    1. It's not too different from what we normally have. The super cold temps are sticking around a little longer, but we actually have less snow this year than last.

  19. Isn't it beautiful? We are feeling the effects of another storm passing through today!

    1. We received a few more inches yesterday. Came out of church to find beautiful big flakes coming down.

  20. We got a taste of this too...not the norm for us. Snow and then ice. Jimmy and I came down with colds and haven't been out of the house since Thursday afternoon.
    I am ready to get out! Ah, winter.

    1. During our hot summers, I try to trick my body into thinking that it's cooler by imagining cold scenery in my head. So this photo may come in handy during July. :-) The day this photo was taken, it was -5 (-20 C) and that was no where near the coldest day of the year. As we approach the 30's (0 C) later this week, we'll probably ditch the jackets and run around in our shirt sleeves.
      Cold and hot are such relative things... it just depends on what one is used to.
