WINTER…Need I say More

Hey, Did you get hit with a massive amount of snow yesterday? I did, here in Lovely Lake Geneva, WI. I believe we had about 8-9" of snow. We live on the south side of Lake Geneva in the the "countryside" and it hit, Hard. Still, I am Very Happy, We Plow- oh alright- My Husband does the Plowing. It has turned out to be a Great season for us. I know many of you would groan and say where is Spring. But, for those of us who work year-round for others-Nature, the weather has not been good to us the last 2-3 years. February had amazing snowfalls. I wonder where it was in December, but no worries, it's here now. Remember, Those that Plow homes and commercial, the guys and gals working to clear your roads, All those that Work Ski Resorts, the little hometown Hardware stores that sell the salt and shovels, We live here in the 4 Seasons Midwest for a reason and although Late-it is a Blessing. Thank You God.

The Lake froze over finally in Mid to Late January. I am quite content to be inside while my crazy Hubby (the one in an Alaskan Pipeline Super Suit from the 70's) takes the girls for a walk on the lake.

 My Wren house piled high with inches of snow:
