Winter Wonderland

Hello everybody! We are in a winter wonderland right now. However, we are not walking in a winter wonderland. We are slipping, sliding, and falling in a winter wonderland. EVERYTHING is covered in ice right now. We were hit by the ice storm Wednesday and then again last night. Today is warm for us- 41. We all said "Yeah! The ice will melt." But the news is telling us that this will only make conditions worse. It is warm and rainy which is making the ice more slippery instead of just melting it. We are suppose to go way down in temperature this weekend and get hit by another storm. Then all of the ice we already have and the melting ice will be worse. Our weather man is predicting single digits for Sunday.
We have our church Christmas program on Sunday evening. We are praying that the weather will still allow the people in the program to come and that the people coming to watch will still get out. We have lots of county roads that our members have to drive on. These roads don't get treated or cleared too quickly.

School was cancelled, so we are starting the Christmas vacation one day early! The kids were excited. The girls and I have plans for making some bead jewelry today, and we may begin making our gingerbread house. We are definately watching a Christmas movie or two also. I have present wrapping planned too. We are doing all of this in our comfy pj's. Yes, that is right. We are not getting dressed today.

Ohhh... ice is bad. What would I give for 41 degrees???? Ha, ha! Have you checked out the weather meter on my blog? COLD here lately. Normally, we don't have this cold until January or February.
Stay safe on the roads and warm in ya pj's... sounds good to me.

I love that you are staying in your PJ's. We do that some days too. Love the picture of the ice, it sure is gorgeous. I am thankful that I live in S. California. It has been cold here, dipping into the 30's at night, we wake up to see frost in the morning which melts away with the rising sun. You all be careful in that ice. Take good care!
