I took this photo shortly after posting the last entry here, and I loved the way it turned out…it was still not very light outside, as you can tell!
We are down to “only” one winter advisory now and that is for lake effect snow. That shouldn’t be too bad, as we seldom get much of that, but….one never knows for sure. The most annoying aspect of our wintry weather is that it has brought in much colder air than we were enjoying! (oh wait, it *is* winter, after all!)
The kids are expecting some company this evening for an (early!) New Year’s celebration. They will be ending the festivities at 10 pm so they can be safe at home when the clock strikes midnight!
“IT”? you ask….
This is from that cute little red banner today:

Introducing “our” world of……………………..white!
This snow is actually above the backs of the Scots. Excuse me, if you will. Seems I have just a *bit* of work awaiting outside…..
Ummm….did I mention our somewhat “fickle” weather here? Yeah, I thought so……..
