BLIZZARD!

Happy Saturday!

I've been finishing my mass-produced Christmas cards today and came across a little problem of running out of red gems. I'm using them to decorate my wreaths on the cards. I would normally just head out to Archiver's, but that is just about impossible today because of the fact that we are getting completely DUMPED ON! Overnight, 6 to 7 inches of snow fell and right now, as I type this, we have close to blizzard conditions! The wind is howling around 30 miles per hour and it's snowing again like mad! We have gotten at least another 7 inches today and more coming! Here are some photos to share with you.


Looking out my front door.




Neighborhood street.





Neighbors digging out.




This is my deck!


Thanks for coming by today! I'm safe, dry, warm and cozy and hope you are too! Stop back on Monday when I'll have some photos of the beautiful graham cracker church that the cake decorator at work made! You won't believe how awesome it is!

WOW Barb. that's a lot of snow. Glad you are safe and sound and cozy inside. I can not imagine what it would be like to have this much snow. I've just had to come in from outside.... because it is too hot!!!!

Oh my goodness! We get very little snow, so I love seeing your beautiful pictures! PS--glitter glue might work to save a trip out in the winter wonderland, although I know it's hard to change when you have something in mind! Take care-Greta

Let it snow, Let it Snow, Let it snow.
You probably don't want to see another snowflake at the moment.
You are truly having a white Christmas Barb.
It looks a real picture, but I can imagine what it is going to be like when it starts to melt.
Keep safe on the roads.
I am really looking forward to seeing the Cake!
Smiles:)

To think that you are in heavy snow and we out here are in Flood mode, actually our towns river has broken its banks. Stay safe sweetie, hugs!

Happy Sunday Barb - gosh you have a lot of snow over there - looks fantastic! All the snow is gone here now but I surely hope we will get a white christmas this year!
Hope you will manage to get out for the gems ;)

Wow Barb! That looks cold! I have never had to live under these conditions, I just find myself wondering how you make it through the day, especially when it's like this for several days at a time! Lots of time for crafting, but we all need to get out sometime! Well, take care and keep warm!
