I have to interrupt today's blog to let you know we are being buried in snow in NW Arkansas this morning. Right now we have 20" on the ground at our house and the weatherman is saying we are getting 2" per hour with predictions of 24" or more before it's all over this afternoon. Then the real problems begin with temperatures dropping to single digits and blowing snow causing drifts 4-6 foot.
I have to get outside asap to fill all the bird feeders. The squirrels have already been knocking at the back door wondering what the heck is going on!
The good news is we bought a 4 wheel drive vehicle yesterday. The bad news is state police say that even 4 wheel drive is useless...you can't even see the roads!
It's really pretty, but I can't say that out loud right now. Jerry just spent the last 2 1/2 hours shoveling to try and get to work. As soon as he would shovel off a strip, it would fill back in. We have a steep driveway, duh! and it's hard even with a couple inches.
I plan on making some potato soup and maybe a pan of cornbread for lunch. We've had enough snows that I've about ran through all my hearty "stick to your ribs" meals already! Beans and cornbread, stew, chicken and dumplings, meatloaf and mashed potatoes. You get the idea!
I know we aren't the only ones who have got hit hard this winter. I know that some places are a lot worse than here on Granny Mountain. But this is something for us, record breaking snow and cold so I just have to whine a little!
