Too cold you say?  Well then let’s walk a bit.

I see now where we are going.

To the corner of our property where there is an old limestone quarry, surrounded by barbed wire because it
is very dangerous.  The one our dear son was warned as a child to never go near.  The one that we found out years after he had kids of his own that he and his cousins jumped in when nobody was looking.

If Greg still lived at home he would probably be trying to ice skate on this deceivingly frozen body of water.  And he would fall through the thin ice.  I count my blessings that he survived his childhood.

Time to head back home.  It is cold out here!  And the snow is deep.

Are you next?  How many inches of snow are you going to get?

I love being snowed in!! Just not this weekend. Shower got postponed until tomorrow night (Why IDK, SIL thinks the roads will get better with 6 degree temps overnight) what ever.

Only expecting about another inch of snow, but it is 23 below at 11pm up here in Fargo with wind chills of near 40 below. Yes--it is cold enough for me, in case you were asking--ROFL!

Lovely, lovely, lovely property! What a dream to live with the woods and trees and even a place to possibly drown! What more could a kid ask for!! You guys are living the dream life. :):)

Wonderful winter photos. I wasn't brave enough to get out in the cold today even when the sun came out! Maybe tomorrow. They say more snow is on the way. Take care and stay warm!

Deanna, love the new header! Both of those puppers are sweet. I didn't know you had a Basset!

You got yourself a winter wonderland there. And you may not want to hear it but 3 to 5 are on the way. I hope it misses us all. I am done with snow and winter.

Your house looks lovely in all the pretty snow. We got 6 to 8 inches here in Warsaw. Haven't been out but thinking of going to the store tomorrow just incase we get more Sunday.

I've had my turn with snow. I'd be happy to have it back, only it will make the workmen do even less work, so maybe it's best if I don't hope for more snow right now? Yeah, I think no snow would be best right now!

Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful!

I love that nuthatch picture!

I got about 12 inches yesterday/last night. I ache from shoveling.

And just think.. winter is only half over...
