Our winter wonderland...

This is a picture I took of the shop last night after I closed and was driving away. The light streaks were caused by the snow and my slow shutter on my phone camera... I think it's pretty cool.

We got somewhere between 8 and 12 inches of the white stuff. It's blowing around and Bob is already out moving it around with his four-wheeler and blade. I'm not sure why he didn't use his skid loader, but I'm sure he will use it later to move the snow piles. We are supposed to get a bit more today and have some winds to make it unpleasant to try to go anywhere, but I've got to get to the shop sometime today to clean up the mess I left last night. Our anniversary sale starts tomorrow... another post to follow this afternoon about that...

For now, I've got my cup of hot cocoa and my oldest little girl by my side and I'm going to just enjoy the beauty of winter and relax in the stillness for a bit... until the other two get up anyway!


  1. The shop looks wonderful. Hope you have a great anniversary sale. It's spitting snow here this morning & wind is blowing -- it's freezing cold. The wind blew so hard last night that it was hard to sleep. I just saw Iowa City on the Weather Channel & it looked like no one was out. Stay warm and happy anniversary. Jan

  3. Hey Polly...
    Teach those little gals how to bake cookies! Teach them the difference between baking powder, and baking soda...important! And it will be a wonderful memory, for all...
    Love, Barb C.
