Blizzard (and cookies!)

We're still digging out from a blizzard overnight. Total amounts of snow are unknown with all the drifting, but I measured 14" this morning, along with 8" or so from the previous morning. Here's a video of our backyard and driveway.

Since I was stuck inside, I made some Valentine cookies. I tried a glace icing for the first time, and it turned out great! (and a bonus, the cats didn't bother the icing)

That is a lot of snow. We attempted to clear the sidewalk to the mailbox today. We got about a quarter of it clear!

The cookies look yummy, very pretty!

The mom has shovelled three times today...just the way the wind was blowing meant it all ended up in our driveway!

Those cookies looks fantastic. Great job with that icing; wow!

Wow! That's a lot of the white stuff!! We didn't get as much as the weather guys said...we got about 7 inches or so. Enough to mess things up though!!

We woulda like to lick those cookies!! They look yummy!!

Mama shoveled yesterday, and the people who were supposed to plow the driveway first showed up at 1am this morning! *grumble* Anyway, those cookies are so pretty! Mama made bacon yesterday but didn't share any!

They are saying we could have snow later today.......the key word being COULD!!!!! Mama says she hasn't seen snow here since 1985, when we had 13 inches of the stuff (of course that was years before either of us) so she'll believe it when she sees it......

The cookies look sooooooooooo yummy!!!!

Two kitties on the porch couch

Ringo and Lucy both love to sneak out on the porch anytime they can (with sneak meaning that Jim opens the door for them).
