Weather Is The Topic!

January 30, 2020

This month has been full of interesting weather. Earlier this month we had lovely snow. This was the view in my backyard one morning. It was the perfect kind of snow. It stayed long enough to be admired but not too long so as to be annoying!

We have also had our share of wind and rain and it seems we are currently stuck in that mode (as seen on the weather forecast yesterday). The rain is expected to continue for awhile. Make sure you know where your umbrellas are!
