Blizzard Aftermath

As you can see, that's a lot of snow, or as we like to call it in my town, a lot of bullshit. It didn't take long for everyone to dig themselves out and clear their driveways. I think people from South Dakota are accustomed to this type of weather. I'm not. I was just happy to sit inside and write. :)

I've lived in a lot of places. Northern and Southern California, Italy, North Carolina, Michigan, Florida and Illinois. Every place I've been has its own flavor. In Italy it was all about the food. Michigan was downright beautiful, and I lived two minutes from the beach in Southern Cali. Here? It's peaceful. And cold - don't get me wrong. I've never been in weather like this before. In the summer it's storm after storm. Thankfully we only had one tornado warning last year. In the winter it's freezing and white. White as far as the eye can see. LOL But I'll take it, because my kids can run around this little town and I don't have to worry.

So there you have it. My blizzard pics. I took more, but you get the jist of the situation. ;) Lots and lots of snow.


  1. It looks like how Alaska usually looks, but instead here on Hillside Drive, in Anchorage, a Chinook (warm wind) blew in and has melted off a ton of snow and blown around anything that wasn't nailed down. I think it's 46 degrees out there, and feels warmer than that. And...I think our kiddie pool for the dogs blew into the neighbors yard...I don't think they really want to borrow it at this time of year. I guess I better go get it before they hate me forever.

  2. 46 degrees. The warmth! lol I doubt we'll see those temps for another few months, but who knows. Stranger things have happened. :)
