The wind was blowing and white outs were abundant. The temps were frigid and it's the kind of day that beckoned me to stay put in the house...light up a fire, make some chicken soup for the family and keep warm and cozy.

Oh look what we have here...we're getting a package. Although...the mail man couldn't seem to get his truck to back up the drive. I rooted for him to keep trying! I wouldn't want to walk out in that beast of a storm either.

Nope. It didn't happen. Between the incline and the driveway not being shoveled...his truck couldn't get the traction to get up it. Mr. Mailman....thank you for enduring the storm to get our mail up to us. We really do appreciate it! We're forcast for pretty much the same weather today. Brrrr.... ~amy

We're getting winter weather here too!

We also love ice wine -- we drink mostly Canadian ones as the German ones are $$$$! We also sometimes buy a Late Harvest in the 375 bottles -- not quite so sweet as the ice wine but far easier on the pocketbook!

Bless his heart! What a dedicated mailman. Definitely looks like the kind of day to stay burrowed up in the house. I was going to say it's been cold here too, but compared to this I guess not! I did make a big pot of vegetable soup though. Have a great week. Kathy

Amy! Happy New Year to you and yours! :)

I saw that you were participating at a couple of parties that I was at (Outdoor Wednesday, and I don't remember the other one) and when I clicked the McKLinky thing, there was some kind of problem and I couldn't see your blog. :( Hope that got fixed.

So, right now - this very minute - I'm adding your blog to my blogroll. That way, we can keep in touch!

Happy Happy New Year!

Thank you for your kind words on my blog on a difficult day.
We have lots of snow here too, and more on the way by Wednesday. Luckily it it relatively flat here so the postman has no trouble getting the mail to my box.
