April Snowstorms?!

Oh Wisconsin I love your variability when it comes to weather.  It's April and we are supposed to be having April showers so we can have May flowers.  Instead we are having April snow and who knows what May will bring.In the last week, there are places in Wisconsin that got over 3' of snow … Continue reading April Snowstorms?!

Snow Day!

While the weather outside is cold and snowy, my plan is to work on more holiday gifts.  The last package went to the post office this morning.  Ken tackled the roads in his truck - I think my car would have gotten stuck in our road since we've not been plowed out.  We got about … Continue reading Snow Day!

Let it Snow?

It's piling up!  The trees are covered with white, the ground is buried beneath a blanket of white.  It is definitely WINTER. Driving from Iowa to Wisconsin in the snow wasn't horrible but we were on the leading edge of the storm so more whispy than heavy snow.  Looking out at the weather it is … Continue reading Let it Snow?

First Snow

It's December.  We got our first snow yesterday with about 3-6" falling.  It was beautiful - white against the dark green of the pines and a variety of colors of the houses. This was my feeling before I had to go out in it.  It's late for the first snow.  Normally we get a little … Continue reading First Snow


Snow and rain are supposed to be creeping into our area.  The weather system is wreaking havoc on my joints and arthritis making my day pain filled.  I'm curling up under warm blankets and going to see whether my fingers will work. It's like a weight - a large and heavy weight on my body … Continue reading Cocoon

Welcome Spring!!

Spring has sprung and look we're covered in snow again.  I'm laughing because this is Wisconsin and I know there are people who are cursing the weather today.  I say - it's March and it's Wisconsin, what do you expect.  It seems ironic that the spring equinox was last week and now we have about … Continue reading Welcome Spring!!

Kindness of…

In Wisconsin we got hit with snow over the weekend.  I spent my weekend indoors so didn't really care or think about it.  Since I'm handicapped, my husband does all the snow removal.  He's in Georgia.  It's hard for him to do snow removal from Georgia.I got in my van this morning and hoped I … Continue reading Kindness of…

Winter has definitely arrived

This morning we woke up to white lawns instead of green.  It has been cold all week and we've had flurries but nothing stuck.  Last night we got enough and it was cold enough that it stuck. I'm working at my desk today and looking out at huge snow flakes and chunks of snow falling … Continue reading Winter has definitely arrived


I hate asking for help.  It has been three months of relying on others for assistance, and people are so kind and willing to help.  Yet I hate asking for help.  Yesterday I was stubborn – ridiculously so.  We had a storm here in Wisconsin.  I was up and on my way to work just … Continue reading Pride?

Winter with a Vengence

Wouldn't you know that we had mild winter weather which I was enjoying even if other people weren't and then the new semester starts and we are slammed.  We've had rain, snow, and frigid weather.  The temps without windchill have been in the single digits mostly but the windchill has been well below zero.  The … Continue reading Winter with a Vengence
