Midwest Blizzard of 2011

Yep, that's what they're calling it.....there is even
a page set up on Facebook called that.The snow blew all the way up under the patio
roof and got on the wood.
For my CFS readers.....that is my bike.
My kids gave it to me for my 50th birthday.
Before CFS I really liked to ride a bike...
It doesn't see much action from me but
it is there if I feel I can make it around the
block or up the street.
The front porch got covered good.....didn't see
a mailman near it for 3 days!
By that time Joe had dug a path.
Gladys was glad Joe dug us a path for her
to use...she was not happy
with this mess. Still isn't...temps have been below
0 at night. She has a good little house and
warm bedding on the back patio. Here is the mum barrel!
The other barrel out by the edge of the drive
In a little over three months I will be
putting my Zinnia seeds in here for my
summer flowers.

I think the official count was 20 inches for

our town here in SW Missouri.

The drifts were higher than that by far. I have not seen weather like this since I was
a kids growing up in the county south of us.
This is the most snow my grown sons have ever
seen around here.
I believe they are calling for more
early next week.


  1. I love the juxtaposition of the blue (which makes me thing of the sky and warm) against the white of the cold, snow.

    We most definitely got a LOT of snow. I just heard more is coming this Tuesday.

    Looks like it is going to be a busy winter!

  2. I'm glad we didn't get that much - it caught us yesterday though but only 2 inches. More to come Sunday and maybe Wednesday - what is going on this is the south!
