Snow, Snow, go away

Good Morning Everyone,

Well, we had one of those whopper Spring blizzards, we generally get one or two of these every year.  What a mess.  I had one hell of a time getting out of the front door, and opening up my poly zipped cover I have around my porch that is on the North side of the house.  I am not sure HOW much snow, but the winds were 50-65 mph during the night and I have 3-4 ft drifts around the house. (It just came over the radio, we had a inch of rain and an average of 4-6 inches of snow, but with the winds, it really drifted).

I will get out this afternoon and open up my steps and porch and post some snowy, white photos, for your enjoyment, LOL.  I don't think that my chives and walking onions are laughing at the moment, though.
Right at the moment, the sun is shining, and it is raining east of us in Kearney, to Omaha,.  This storm is a very slow mover, what makes it bad is the wind.

So, other than that, there isn't much to talk about,  definitely can't get out in the garden, unless you want to grow snow tomatoes or something that can take the cold.  I covered my greens and lettuces a few days ago, covered my Asparagus, and I put my berry canes in pots under my car port and covered them with blankets.  Hopefully they will be ok.

I want to take the time to thank all of you for well wishes and get well's.  It has been many years, really since I had my cancer surgery 13 years ago, that I have been so ill and droopy.  And to be honest, I didn't  really take to heart how run down I was, no wonder I could not get moving, and then to get the flu and really run down was a low point for me, but I am improving every day, I see strength returning everyday, and take it one day at a time. Again, thank you for all of your love, prayers, thoughts, it means so very much to me, and hugs and love to all of you.  I guess, I have so many to look after, that I forgot to take care of me, which sounds selfish, but if you don't take care of you, you cannot take care of business, or family, or commitments as there is no one else to do it.  So take it from me, make sure you all take care of your selves.

Well,  I am going to start to get dressed, somewhere I need to find my boots, (somewhere), and I need to find a sweat shirt somewhere also, think those are put in the closet so got to dig those out.  My snow removal guy should be around later today or tomorrow, but I want to get some photos so you can laugh at me and my snowy world.

Take care all, have a great weekend, and hugs.


  1. Dear, dear Vicki ~ I sure love your sense of humor and I'm so glad you are feeling much better.

    Love and hugs to you ~ FlowerLady

  2. Your "snow event" must be the front that's blowing in today. Please can we have some moisture out of it!!! Very windy, gusty and chilly today. Keep warm and watch where you step. We don't need you slipping and falling!

  3. OMG - SNOW? NOW? Here we have birds singing, blossom breaking out on the apple trees, greenery on the woodland trees and flowers in the garden. It's been 70 degs. last week! Unheard of this early in the year, and March was really dry too.

    I wish I could wave a magic wand to make you feel better Vicki. I will try and send healing thoughts your way.

    Love, Jennie in Wales xx
