We’ve been pretty lucky here in Nebraska so far this winter. The temps in January were so mild and unseasonably warm that some of my little bulbs in the flower bed out front started sprouting up and our neighbors Silver Maple tree grew buds. But we knew it couldn’t last and this past week we were hit with lots of snow. I know it’s good for the ground so we aren’t in a drought, but that doesn’t make it hate it any less and I really hope the shock of the cold temps doesn’t hurt the trees.
The snow was actually quite pretty this time though and Hudson ended up having two snow days from school, so I guess it wasn’t so horrible. And it’s supposed to get up to around 40 degrees and sunny this weekend which will have that snow melting like crazy in no time.
These photos almost make me wish I had some snowshoes so I could go wander off in the silence for awhile. Almost.
My parents are coming for a visit this weekend so I have lots to get done before they get here tomorrow night.
