I only said "Let it snow!" because there is no choice. The sun's shining now on the 20+ inches that fell Friday night, all day yesterday, and last night. Here is a sunrise photo into my back yard, with Glenna's tracks. I'm glad I didn't have to make tracks like that to relieve myself.
My good neighbors did some snow shovelling for me yesterday morning, but that filled in by the time I paid them a visit in the afternoon, shovelling my way to their door. They've also promised to help clear my driveway so the dogsitter can park when she comes to take care of Glenna. Do you think they would like Iowa State caps or t-shirts as thank you tokens?
I'm due to catch Amtrak's Capitol Limited at 4:05 pm for my holiday visit with my sisters and their families in Iowa (Ames.) I haven't heard how the storm is effecting Amtrak service. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to get to the station by taxi anyway. I have plenty of needlework ready to work on during the trip, so we'll just flow with any delays.
And, here's a picture of my front yard after the sun is up. Consider it a holiday card wishing you the happiest season and a great new year.
