It has been snowing since about 9 am. When I left work at noon you could only see about a block. The snow is coming down sideways. The wind is terrible. The courthouse was closed at noon today because of the weather. The Courthouse NEVER closes on a regular work day. I'm sure glad it did.
Here are a few pictures I have taken of the mess.
Some of these are looking out my back door and some out of my front windows. Unlike my daughter I did not go out side to take pictures.
The was snow plastered against my patio door. The photo shows the snow better. The black wrapped thing is the grill.
Through the front windows
Poor little birds are cold!
The woodpecker is waiting for the ugly black colored bird to get off of his suet.
Finally he can get a little food before the bully birds show up.
Now the squirrel is going to get in on the act.
View through the patio door. And the storm still rages.
Small towns are a great place to raise kids. There isn't a bunch of things for them to do but they make their own fun. Don't think that small towns are drug and crime free, far from it. I had aways thought this was such a nice little town until I went to work for the District Court. Now I know different, on the surface it is an innocent appearing town.
For such a small town, we have several parks. Lemons park is by far the most beautiful. It doesn't matter what time of year. There are sidewalks the wind through the park, play areas for the kids and separate area for playing baseball and T-ball.
This is the local one and only theater in our town. I does show first run movies. It also has two screens. So no matter where you sit you don't have anything blocking your view. And you are close to the screen.
Our water towers, well maybe at one time but now they are just for show. Pratt's brush with fame came when a writer from the New Yorker magazine drove through town. He say the water towers, had to take a picture and wrote a story that was published in the magazine. Now that was the talk of the town for several weeks!
It took me 15 years to get use to this town. I grew up and always lived in a big city. It was a total shock moving to this small of a town. Now my husband was just the opposite. This is the largest town he has ever lived in. We both adjusted because we are still here some 30 years later.
Let's see, hmmm
Well I'm married for many years. I have 5 children, all grown or so they claim. They are all married. (thank heavens) Most of them more than once. With that many kids I have a LOT of Grandkids (19) and 2 Great Grandkids.
Talk about large family get togethers.
It is fun, lots of food, lots of noise, lots of laughs and really not to many fights. Not even with the kids, isn't that amazing. I guess the most of us get along pretty good.
I do pity the son-in-law that does one of the girls wrong when everyone is home. He has the whole family to deal with.
Oh did I say I have 4 girls and 1 boy. The little brother gets kind of mad if someone does something wrong to one of his big sisters. I'm sure my girls have some stories about that.
That's about it I guess, until I thnk of more to add.
