Winter with a Vengeance!

If these photos seem a little cloudy, it's because so much snow is falling and blowing. Weather forecasters have upped our snowfall prediction to 15 inches (38 cm). With reduced visibility and Wednesday temps reaching only 14 F (-10 c), it's a full blown blizzard. According to one news agency, 358 Iowa schools have closed, and most evening activities are cancelled. Typically this also means that grocery stores are swamped!

These inside-looking-out photos give you an idea of what it's like.
It's the buzz of snowblowers that's most familiar this time of year. Hubby uses snowblowing as an excuse to be outdoors and enjoy a cigar.
As for me, to heck with staying warm with a hot chocolate! I'm sipping a lemon-lime and bitters! It's a refreshing drink I came to enjoy while in Oz. Now if I can just dredge up recent memories of extreme heat, I'll be really happy.
