Most winters we get snow then it warms up and melts and then the cycle begins again. Not this year. We've had snow on the ground for the past 3 1/2 months with more on the way. (Dawn, I don't know how you do it living where you do! My hat's off to you!!) Add to that very few sunny days and it makes people go a little stir crazy. They were saying on the news last night that calls to travel agents is up 40% this year from normal with people just wanting to get away!
On Sunday, Pug Mama challenged each of us to find a way to summarize part of our week in 3 words. This week mine was 'Ready for Spring.' It was fun to see all that people came up with. Some beautiful, some whitty, some creative and some sad. Each of us going through life together yet facing our own unique situations, challenges and celebrations.
Tonight I decided to try out a little experiment. I'm sure the neighbours think I'm crazy but I don't care! It's all in fun. The news is saying that tonight is the coldest night so far this winter so I wondered how long it might take for tap water to freeze. I thought it would be fast but was surprised when it took but a few seconds!
Yes...small things amuse me!
Last night's video was dark so I tried to film another one this morning. It's not quite as effective but you can see how quickly my finger slides across the ice that was formed. (Yes, that's traffic you can hear behind me. I was sporting a stylish long nightgown and winter coat and boots. Oh yah....I was stylin! And I'm sure the neighbours are a talkin....again! :o)
Hope you're safe and warm where you are. Tonight I am thankful for my home, heat, electricity, water and a warm coat and boots. I can't help but think of those who are living on the streets. Praying they'll allow someone to help them out tonight and take them to a shelter to keep warm.
PS - Hope referrals begin to arrive soon. It's pretty sad when the big thing I have to post about and entertain you with is watching water freeze!
