Yes, I know I am slow getting updated, but I wanted pictures and I can't upload pictures on my computer because it is 7 years old and everything on it is broken, so I can basically get on the Internet and that is it!  None of my usb ports work.  I need a new computer, but it will just have to wait.  I load all our pictures on Randy's computer and then email them to myself.  It gets rather annoying.  Why two computers, because when he is at the firestation, Randy like to have his computer for studying, or just for fun during the long 24 hour shift.  So last Tuesday we had what the weathermen called a blizzard.  From reading the Laura Ingalls Wilder books, I expected something a little more, but it was still impressive.  There were definitely white-out conditions and they shut down the airport and I-70 from Kansas City to St. Louis.  Here we got around 10 inches of snow, but the impressive thing happened on Thursday morning.  It got down to -14 degrees here.  In my 32 years I have never experienced conditions that cold!

Here are some pictures that I thought were pretty cool.

A view out our laundry room door!  I like the door imprints on the snow!
That pile is about 10 feet high there.
Father and son snow shoveling!
Our buried swing set. The entire side wall of our retaining wall is buried.
This is what it normally looks like!


  1. Wow! That is a lot of snow! And I thought we had it bad in Florida, when the temp dropped to the 40s . . . . . stay warm! :)
