It's been cold and colder around here, but light on the snow. It's sunny now, so there are hopes of getting out and working the garden beds over early again this year.

Snow in my county hasn't been bad, compared to other parts of the country. The heavy winds and cold temperatures of a week or two ago seem to have moved on.

My power went out last night, it still wasn't on when i left for work this morning. today has been pretty calm so i expect it will be back up when I get home.


I have burned through a lot more firewood than I expected i would, but, without a heat in my cabin, it's pretty much all i have!

We've had a few snow storms down here much to my surprise, one that was quite severe keeping most inside for almost a week. But, it's already in the 60's and threatening to go into the 70's this week end. I'd prefer a much longer winter.

Horrible. We just had one of the biggest snow storms for this area in something like 80 years or so. We received about 25 inches of snow. That just doesn't happen in Arkansas.

Not bad at all really.

A bit of snow, but not a lot.

Temps have been cool, but nothing cooler than normal. Actually our lowest temps this season have not been record breaking at all.

Mostly clear sunny skies.

Yikes! Hopefully your power comes back on today.

Longer winter? Are you a polar bear?
