The Calm Before the Storm, er Snow

We’ve been hearing a lot lately about our weather changes in the news. Some times I believe the weather guy on TV because he has a degree or something in weather-telling and should know what he’s talking about, and sometimes I just wait to see what happens.  Our temperatures have really dropped a lot here lately, and this week was cold, bitter cold.

As of this mornings weather report, our weather and precipitation will be changing… into snow (again).  Rats.  The weather-telling guy said that snow will be hitting us for the next few days through the weekend.  Great, just great.  I have not yet got into the mood of where I can welcome the snow yet, but I guess I am going to have to get my butt in gear and just do it.  It’s coming whether I want it to or not, so I guess I should just deal with it, right?

Anyhow, if anyone wants to hire me to shovel their driveway, give me a call and we can set something up!

All I can do now is wait and see what happens. If it comes, it comes. The dogs will surely love it and we’ll be playing outside making snow doggies for sure!  I am actually looking forward to seeing how my snow craftiness skills will increase this year.  Last year they kinda stunk, as our snowfall was minimal and we did not get much of that heavy “snow packing” white stuff like we had wished.

We’re still working on decorating the front yard with our Christmas lights, and we only have the LED gutter lights and the LED lights for the bushes to do yet, but with the snow on its way this weekend, I am not sure if we can get them up.  Who wants to stand outside in 30 degree temps and decorate? Not me!

HOUSE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS

Anyhow, our front yard has lots of nice bright lights and I wrapped six of our tomato cages from the garden with red lights and made little Christmas trees by the sidewalk.  If you have any tomato cages, get out your lights and just wrap them around the upside down tomato cage to make your own lighted trees!  You can even connect the light strings in between trees, so add as many tomato cages as you like. Also, since the winds can be a factor and knock over your lighted trees, you will need to stake the bottom of the trees into the grass to hold them in place.

OUR TOMATO CAGE CHRISTMAS TREES

Our wonderful new newlywed neighbors started decorating the front of their house yesterday with Christmas lights too, and getting into the holiday spirit!  That was so cool to see, as their house has not had any life in it for years and we’re glad to see some fun new neighbors!

NEIGHBORS HOUSE LIGHTS

So, what do you use to decorate your front yard?  Do you use something unique that you would like to share with all of us?  All I can say is…let it snow, I’m ready for ya!
