We got a little snow last night, which is unusual enough. The fact that it is still there today is even more so. It also doesn’t look like we are done with it just yet because they are calling for more tonight and again on Halloween.
I’m really hating it for a number of reasons, but a big one is the fact that our poor dog Izzy is already struggling. We had to get a harness for her so we could help her up the stairs and back in after she goes outside. Her back legs are either experiencing extreme weakness or severe arthritis, but it makes it really hard for her push off with them to get up or climb steps. The early cold and now snow is going to make it even harder on her. Between that and struggling to get her interested in eating… she is just having a really hard time. It is a little better for her when the temps aren’t too cold and it is dry so seeing this so early just makes me mad on her behalf.
Yes, this is one from way earlier in the year, but I thought maybe a snow and ice picture would make me feel cooler instead of melting.
I’ve uploaded a whole slew of new photos to my Pixels site! Most are photos I’ve posted here before, but there are several shots that haven’t been seen here.
Today was perfect weather to play with ice bubbles. Between that and the also perfect snow we got with the crazy low temps, I loaded up on some amazing shots over the last couple of days, but I’m still going through them all. For now, here is one of my favorite bubble shots.
Just as I was getting ready to post this, seeing it on a larger screen rather than my small one, I realized that what you see looks just like what water does as it is getting ready to boil. Only this is ice. Funny the things you see when you stop to look.
My house is back to quiet today. Hubby almost always takes the time between Christmas and New Year’s Day off, but not quite the same days as the kids are on their winter break. He normally goes back to work a day or two before the kids so I get a gradual return to normal. This year, they all went back the same day and it is a bit of a shock.
I’m well past the 24 hour mark and my Amazon account is still frozen. I was told 24 to 48 hours so I have to stay patient, but I am so not. After a long discussion with Hubby, we decided to just not take the risk and canceled anything that was tied to that account. It was a pain in the ass, but we got it done. I’ve also taken the added precaution to remove that email from any other accounts on the off chance it wasn’t just Amazon. I will never understand some people’s need to be assholes.
This is probably the last of the new mum pics for the year as they are currently getting buried in snow. But that means I now get to take snow pics!
These images can be purchased from my Pixels store.
As pretty as the last snowfall was, it didn’t last longer than a day. The temps stayed cold, but the snow was gone. Now we are getting another round. It’s kinda crazy. It is really unusual for us to get anything measurable before Thanksgiving, but we got our first one before Halloween (that one might have broken a record) and we’ve already had a second since then and it looks like we might be working on a third today. It’s going to be one hell of a winter.
So, the photo doesn’t fit with the season, but it is still perfect for today. My HVAC system finally got completed. We’ve been running at nearly 100% for several days, but were still waiting on the last damper for the zones which got put in today.
