Artic freeze ~ Aberta Clipper...

Sooo cold! Any way you say it, it is way too cold. The weather is frightful as well as the driving. Most of us are driving slower these days and I am thankful.

I am thankful for the miracle in New York yesterday! What a gift, what a blessing.

I am thankful for our cozy home from where I found some shots through the windows to share...

This is our pink bench.

This guy was trimmed last summer after ALL of the birds left. I started this bush awhile back when it was less than two feet tall... it is now over 8 feet.

This is one of the urns on our front porch... yes I have left the Christmas finery in them... I love how the snow cascades on this. The photo does not show this off well.

Hmm.... hot cocoa sounds good tonight!

Count me in for cocoa! It is too darn cold. Haven't even been able to take my usual morning walks between the ice and the cold. Ick! Thank you for always thinking of me Mary! You are such a sweetheart and a wonderful friend.

Oh Mary ~ I so agree with you. Cocoa sounds wonderful right now! I can't take more of this -21, and -40 with the windchill stuff!

Have a great weekend and try to stay warm!

Hugz,

Wow, that is cold! Thanks for sharing your snowy pictures. I live in Florida where it is getting down to the low 20's which is unusual for us. Snow is beautiful but oh so cold!

Our snow keeps us guessing! Now you see it, now you don't !!
It has been extra cold though and we are sprinting from the car to whatever bldg. we are entering!
Your snowy scenes are really pretty Mary :)
