beauty...

Last night we went to bed with the sound of freezing rain pelting the windows.

Our electricity flickered a few times, but thankfully stayed on.

Because of the road conditions and potential need for maintenance at the facility, Steve stayed at work last night. After working until 11:30pm, he went to sleep in a Respite room, and awoke to 25 separate roof leaks! Now that is some FUN to wake up to!!!
When I talked to him a little while ago, he was in the parking lot trying to get a car unstuck~~waiting for the plow to come through again.

This morning we woke to this:

You can not see it in the picture, but the snow is coming down thick and fast.

I cannot wait for the snow to stop so that I can go out and take pictures of the ice and snow covered trees!!!

The BEAUTY of Winter:

For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
And do not return there without watering the earth
And making it bear and sprout,
And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth;
It will not return to Me empty,
Without accomplishing what I desire.
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
For you will go out with joy and be led forth with peace;
The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you,
And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.
Isaiah 55:10~12

The FUN of Winter: The WORK of winter

  1. I so love to see the beautiful ice. I don't love to drive on the beautiful ice. But it is one of the most beautiful winter scenes I believe.
    We have it here too.
    But, my pix will not be as pretty as yours.
    Back to school for us tomorrow. At the table at least.
