Can You Say Snow?

It's snowing here in Utah. Great big fat flaky snow. The kind of snow that multiplies when it goes over the Great Salt Lake.

We are getting a ton of this stuff. It's supposed to snow all afternoon and all night. Five inches before rush hour. And then we'll all have a long commute.

It is so beautiful. I love the snow. But it's what comes after the snow that I don't like. The cold. This weekend our low will be 9 degrees. Sounds fun, huh?

And I still need to finish my Christmas shopping. Still have to find something on this earth that my hubby doesn't have. This is a chore. He told me to get him nothing. That is too easy and such a cop out. Over the next 5 days I will be a shopping fool during my lunch hour.

Since I can't take many of you with me (won't fit in my little Honda, sorry!) here is a picture of Baxter for you to enjoy. He likes the snow too and wears booties to protect his tootsies.

I'd take 9 for a low--a few days this week, I'd have taken it for a high! So we are getting the heck out of Dodge in the morning. No white Christmas for us this year! It will be beautiful as we wave goodbye in our rear view mirror, and I'm sure it will be beautiful when we get back. Happy shopping! (and Hi Baxter!)

What a cute little doggy! We're expecting ice...never a good thing...overnight. Wish we'd get snow, considering the season, and all! BTW, please don't forget my Sx3 tomorrow...it's seasonal-and hysterical!

The snow looks great! We might be heading to Utah on Christmas...from Florida! It was about 80 here today!

Marrdy: What are your kitties doing for Christmas? And, DON'T FORGET: The Packers are on Monday Night Football this week. We can watch Brett and the Jets today!

WE have snow too, about 1 inch and it just makes the ice harder to handle. Besides it's just blowing around so maybe there isn't an inch there is really only a trace but it blows into a pile that is one inch. Oh to have the wonderful Utah snow again. I wish I could come...
Love ya, Hugs for you for Christmas!

I should get booties for my parents dog. He always comes inside with a beard of snow becuase he buries his face in the snow every time!

Veggie Mom said...

OK, Marrdy, don't know if you saw the Packers last nite, but they were pitiful! I'm so bummed I'm not gonna post about it until tomorrow. They stink!

I hate this snow! It's alright for a white Christmas, but I hate driving in it.

I saw the overtime of the football game, sorry your team lost, but I'm more sorry that I had to keep hearing my stepdad say "da bears" over and over. :P

I love all this snow for Christmas! But then come January I'm sure I'll be ready for it to go away.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmsa Marrdy!
