A Non-event

Well, our big weather event turned into a non-event. By dawn the snow had stopped and we ended up with about an eighth inch on the ground. It was still pretty while it lasted. Now all we have is frigid temperatures - currently it's 16 degrees - burrrrrrrr.

Tonight is my better half's last night on the graveyard shift, in fact it's his last night at this job. A week from Monday he starts a new job that will allow him to work days and have weekends off (something we haven't had many of this year). I know he's happier about this new change and truth be told so am I. It will be nice having him home more, for sure.

This next week will be spent doing things around the house that we haven't had time to do because of time constraints. Plus we'll be firing up the sawmill and cutting our first boards. The weatherman is predicting temps in the mid-fifties for the next week, so won't have to be outside bundled up like children in snowsuits. That will be nice. But, I bet we keep the woodstove going strong, since nights are supposed to be around freezing. Then again, that's good cuddle weather too.

We got an inch in central Arkansas. The rodes were clear the next day. i still had enough to make snow ice cream > Thats unusual though. Usually you folks higher in the mountains get more snow than we do. I've always been so jealous of that.
