Winter Surprise

I woke up super early this morning, and thought about going back to bed, but realized it was a good thing to be awake early. I'll be leaving in just over an hour for the hospital for my drug infusion for my colitis. However, being dark at 2 in the morning, I wasn't aware of what awaited me when I stepped out the door to go to the pool. Surprise! It snowed. For me that is a wonderful surprise. I know it isn't for a lot of people, and I do hope my son didn't have any trouble driving, as the roads are slippery, as I found out on my way to the pool. He drives 45 minutes to work and back. So, I thought I would give you all a glimpse of my world this morning. I am just home from the pool, and still need to eat before I leave. I will try to get as much interaction done before I leave in an hour. I think I'll leave a little early due to road conditions. How are you all doing this fine morning? Thanks for reading.

Yes, it is, and I think this is going to be around for a while. It's not going to get warm anytime soon to melt it.

Only if Cleveland is played outside, as they play the Browns at their home stadium. I do think I just saw snow is expected in Ohio. So, it's possible.

That's great, I know how you love the snow. We woke to a tiny bit of it, but not enough to cover the ground. I'll be leaving for the hospital within the hour.

@just4him I was there early and they took me early. Just a good example of being willing to work with the powers that be. The lady that was ahead of me was really being a pain, she didn't have her blood work done, stated it was a religious belief and she went on an on. So really quietly a nurse came to where I was and told my nurse that they could take me now....quickly. And it was said very hushed so that the other lady nearby couldn't hear me. I guess manners do count!

it's trying to snow here, so I'm really glad I did what I had to do yesterday & that's to make sure all the babies had enough food for the week so I wouldn't have to do it in the snow today. I do hope you are careful going & getting back home safely & you day goes good for you as we all deserve a good day.

@yugocean No, I won't. My grandchildren are all adults, and my great-grandchildren don't live near me.

We had a bit of snow, just a tiny bit, and that is enough for me. I am one who dislikes snow with a passion. Glad you like it, though.

Not everyone can like it like I do. I just wish we had a more gradual decline in temps than the sudden plunge. My body is still getting over the shock.

Yes, it did. I wasn't expecting it. When I looked at the ten day forecast there wasn't but one day with snow and that was a slim chance sometime next week.

Kids always like winter. At least that's the way it was when I was growing up. I'm glad you had a good day.

@Courtlynn If I read that report right, you're going to get a lot more than we got with our little dusting. You'll need your shovel.

YAY! Is this the first snowfall of the season for you?

No, but it is the first that will stay because of the really cold temps for the next week or so. We had some really nice snow in November, but it was too warm to stick around.

@tammys85 I'm sure it did. Well, I now have a full blown cold from this cold weather. I love winter, and snow, but the sudden plunge in temps was hard on me physically.

@nanette64 At least we're seeing snow early this year. I just hope it doesn't start and stop early. That would be a real bummer. And there better be snow for Christmas, if not, that just won't be right either, especially for Wisconsin. I feel like I'm whining. We had flurries this morning and that made me happy. Accumulation would have made me happier, but at least it snowed.
