MILD WINTER, HUH?



This has been a beautiful week, with snow both Wednesday and Thursday, and then cold temperatures down in the teens at night preserving all the beauty. Here at the 500' level, we got close to 5" of the fluffy stuff. It is so powdery it doesn't even make a decent snowball, let alone a snowman! Today, some thought they'd see if the ice was thick enough to hold their weight. Georgy, Grammy and Grandad's cat, went first. So Josiah thought he'd give it a try, very tentative at first as you can see, staying very close to the edge just in case!
"Look, Mom, no hands!"
Wow! It even holds Jeremiah. Turns out, the ice was close to 4" thick!

Here are the promised "Friesen Carolers"! I know, not very many could come, but you know it's quality not quantity that counts! Because there were so few of us, we just went to The Village's Assisted Living Center. We had a good time visiting with cousin Brenda home from Florida for Christmas.

Yes, Dennis was there too. He and Brenda traded off taking the pictures. That's Rosella Wall and Alma Smith in the center of the picture. They were a couple of the ones we caroled to. Then Larry and Dorthy (on the left) opened their home for more visiting and goodies.

Meanwhile it was 72 degrees in Virginia Sunday...don't worry that midwest cold is heading out way now.

It's great that you were able to get at least a handful of you together to sing around town. Would have loved to have joined you all!
