Still Snowing

Abundance of Snow

Abundance of Snow

We started our recent episode with snow last week on Thursday.  It snowed so much that I didn’t do my usual Thursday afternoon visiting at the local nursing home.  I came home to be safely indoors out of the snow.  The next day we had so much snow that school was canceled for the day.  It continued to snow on Saturday until evening.  I had a lot of shoveling to do to keep the driveway and porch steps cleared, but I’m so thankful for help which I received.  Two of my neighbors helped me, using their snow blowers.

Sunday was sunny and bright and a little warmer and no new snow! That was great.  Monday there was more snow but it wasn’t a heavy accumulation.  Yesterday in the late afternoon it was snowing again and the roads were slippery, but this morning there wasn’t enough snow to have another no school day.  This afternoon it started snowing again. The last I saw outdoors, it was snowing briskly, but I think it isn’t snowing steadily.

The snow plow came through this morning and piled up a three foot barrier between my driveway and the road.  It was heavy, dense stuff, and very difficult to remove.  My son and grandson tackled the job and cleared the driveway for me.  I am so thankful.

It’s been a good while since I had a nice walk in the snow, but this snow isn’t the kind that I would enjoy walking in.  The sidewalks are slushy and slippery and so is the street.  It’s been difficult for me to get my usual walking done, but I keep trying to put in a lot of steps indoors instead of outdoors.

We’re almost ready for Thanksgiving here at my house.  We are expecting to have a very satisfying celebration tomorrow.  I hope you have many blessings to count at this time.  My brother told me that in the Bible, everywhere rain is mentioned, it is a blessing, except at the time of the flood.  I wonder if snow is also such a blessing. If so, we are abundantly blessed with all the snow we have been getting during this last week.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.

    Mary Lou, glad to see you here. I’ve missed my blog and visitors so much! I’m sorry to say that Corry seems to have a monopoly on snow. We haven’t learned to share. It’s so early this year, too! NJ
