Tuesday Morning Brief

@just4him (305317)
Green Bay, Wisconsin
April 2, 2024 7:22am CST
Good morning from cloudy, soon to be snowy Green Bay, Wisconsin. We had the preamble for Winter Storm Cora yesterday. The weather service predicts the snow will start around 9 AM. Today is Bible study, the Punch and Prize party in the main building community room, and Writer's Guild. It looks like I'm going to Bible study since the storm won't be bad before we're finished. I'll also be going to the Punch and Prize party in the main building. It's for the Easter egg hunt that started last Thursday. Some eggs have prize tickets in them. We're to bring them unopened. I won't be going to Writer's Guild unless they have it on Zoom, which is a possibility. They're calling for 7-12 inches of snow starting at 1 PM, but it will start as early as 9 AM. Today is a play by ear day. @TheHorse, I will have snow pictures of this current storm which will bring the most snow we've had all year. That's what my day looks like. How's your day going? Thanks for reading. The image belongs to me. Easter.

I got those many years ago from a supermarket promotion. My kids were little. I decided to use them as my best dishes. They're still looking almost new. Yes. It's not uncommon. I really didn't think we would get more snow with as warm as it was all winter. I'm glad we're getting winter's last hurrah.

@just4him - I know how much snow is dangerous for people who have to drive even with it snows. Snow is only pretty up in the mountain, were people do not need to use cars.

Thank you. Yes, I love seeing it and being in it. Today's snow will be dangerous for drivers. The 50 mph winds will have it blowing and drifting making it hard to be in. The evening commute and morning commute tomorrow will be bad. I remember driving in those conditions. I'm glad I'm retired.

@LadyDuck Yes, mountain snow is pretty. I'm glad they keep the roads in good condition in winter and early spring when it snows.

We are expecting snow later this week also. It is cold and damp and windy out today. Great picture.

@just4him They say that our region will get it on Thursday, but it looks and feels like it could be sooner.

This afternoon I have to go get house insurance. The house insurance my uncle had is too expensive so we are switching companies.

Sounds like a good day, minus the snow lol. Hope you enjoy the snow that you do get. I hope we are done until next winter at least.

It's been a good day. Not finished yet. I just got the link for the Zoom meeting for Writer's Guild. It's snowing and starting to accumulate.

We are to get some snow later today and most of the night. I don't think we will get a lot, and no doubt it will melt very quickly. Time will tell! Maybe you can build a tiny snowman, Valerie!

I'm glad you'll get snow too. Snowmen are out! So says my chiropractor, my doctor, and my therapist. That darn L1 L2 fracture changed my life as a snowman builder. Here's the culprit that did me in.

Although I like snow, I am done with it for this year. In the mountains it can flurry at least well into April. Happily that doesn't happen here.

Yes, there is a point when a person is done with snow. I don't know where that point is with me though. Looking out my patio door makes me smile.

I'm sure you're happy to see snow and it sounds like you're going to be getting a decent amount too. We have lots of rain and if it was snow it would be significant for sure. Hope you find a prize or prizes in your eggs. Sounds like a fun party. Love the picture! it's amazing how much you and your son look alike.

I wonder what he would say about that. Of all my children, three of them, he looks most like his father. I've also had someone tell me my daughter looks like me. She was with me when the person said that. Yes, it will look pretty when it finally changes over to snow. It just did. I don't know when it will start accumulating. They're saying of the twelve inches they're predicting about 6-9 will be on the ground. I'm looking forward to the party. My neighbor is giving me a ride over. Missy's Mama and Daddy. It will be a fun party. I hope we have good representation from our building.

I know that you will enjoy seeing the snow come down. We are expecting some storms late tonight and tomorrow, but nothing compared to what happened yesterday or will happen today as the front comes closer to us. Sounds like a full day for you. My day is more laid back, going nowhere that I am aware of. I will sweep and run the vacuum. Dinner (beef roast and veggies) is in the crock pot cooking and smelling good. Have a blessed day.

7-12 inches of snow, we didn't see this once for the past couple winters.

I know. We're due. Maybe next winter. I'm sure if it were all snow and didn't melt on contact, we would have that much on the ground.

ikes, sounds like Winter Storm Cora is packing a punch for Green Bay! Stay safe out there with the snow coming in. Hope you get a good dose of inspiration at Bible study before the weather hits. A Punch and Prize party sounds like a fun way to celebrate Easter – fingers crossed you find a winning egg! Let me know if the Writer's Guild goes virtual, I'd be curious to hear what they're working on. Looking forward to your snow pics tomorrow! My day is going well so far, thanks for asking. Just prepping for a video call meeting later this afternoon, but in the meantime I'm catching up on some emails and enjoying a cup of coffee. Enjoy your snowy (but hopefully cozy) day!

Yes, Winter Storm Cora packed a punch. When I looked at the weather there were power outages all over the area. I'm glad we didn't have the power out. Bible study was wonderful. We're studying the book The Day Approaching by Amir something. He's a Messianic Jewish teacher. He's humorous which makes the study exciting. I found one winning egg. The party was so much fun. Writer's Guild did go virtual on Zoom. I got wonderful feedback on the story I've been reading for a couple of months now. We get five minutes to read, and then the feedback. I made corrections to what I read. I'm thankful for the wonderful feedback they give. I enjoyed the snow. It's almost gone now. The temperatures are warming up now, so we might not see another snowstorm this year, but around here we don't say never. We've had snow in May. You never know what's going to happen here.

@Heartyy Thank you. It was a good day. Spring is a wildcard for crazy weather. We never know what to expect. The editing is going well.

@just4him Wow, sounds like Bible study was a hit and the Writer's Guild feedback was super productive! Congrats on finding a winning egg and having a fun party too. Glad you enjoyed the snow (even though it's melting fast!). May is definitely a wildcard for weather, but here's to smooth sailing for the rest of spring! Can't wait to see the edits you made to your story after the feedback session.
