Why I have a blog

Since I never seem to get around to sending out Christmas cards or letters, I decided to blog a bit to keep my fans updated. :-)

Why I love living in UTAH!

When I came home last night just after 9PM, it was not snowing. It had snowed earlier in the day, so I had a few inches on my lawn, but nothing on my drive or walks.

This morning, I peeked out at the patio in the back and saw this, so assumed the front would look the same.

HA! What a surprise when I opened the garage and found at least 8 inches of snow, if not 10 or 12. Apparently, the maple tree in the back shielded the patio from the snow.

My tulips are SO CLOSE to blooming, but I'm wondering if they will survive this. They are hardy little things, so I give it a better than 50/50 chance.


The apple trees look quite fetching in their temporary white coats.


The maple tree in the back did not fare as well, and I have 2 limbs down.



The mailbox


  1. It's pretty, but I'm still really glad I live in FL!!


  2. I have to admit, I rather liked this last storm, though I'm usually a fan of sequestered seasons. :)
