I took this photo this morning during a brief squall….the snowflakes were coming down the size of small snowballs!
The Scottie boys slept late this morning, not even wanting to go outside until about 7 o’clock! There was a fresh coating of newly fallen snow that was wet and sticky. The trees all appeared to have been “air-brushed” and the birds in the trees sang their various songs cheerfully above our heads, as though welcoming the new year in their own way! We lingered outside longer than usual….it was just so fresh and such a feeling of “newness”!
We are excited about the Buffalo Sabres game this afternoon. It is being called a “Winter Classic”. Buffalo will be facing the Pittsburgh Penguins…they played them at Pittsburgh a couple of days ago and lost. This game will be played in Buffalo today and the big difference is that it will be played outside!
Our entire area, including Buffalo, is under a winter storm warning, so everyone is hoping the snow will hold off until after the game! Mark and I were talking about this game yesterday, and several teams were hoping to play this game. Mark wonderd how Buffalo got chosen, but as I thought about it, I came to the conclusion that Buffalo is ALWAYS the brunt of jokes because of the somewhat extreme amount of snow it receives in the winter. *Perhaps* that had something to do with it!
