Sunday Selfie/Ussie






Kinda selfie of my sleet covered driveway and Gracie my Car at the end
We are calling the little guy in the right corner Slick the Sleetman



Thank you all for you kind words and birthday wishes to TROGM....
in spite of the sleet (which she did not request for her bday) and the extremely cold temps she had a very nice bday.  Weather update: we had about 6 hours of sleet after we got up.  It started snowing at about noon, snowed for 2 hours.  Then the sun came out partially.  About 2:30
TROGM aka Trog Mom decided to see if she could walk down the driveway.
Fortunately there was a nice powdery layer of snow on the sleet made for easy walking.
I expect all that will be frozen tomorrow.
Our power stayed on, we were warm and our bellies were full.

  10. Sneaky Sleetman! That picture is something... Gracie must be really cold. At least she didn't take a slide on down the drive. Your weather update sounds good except for the 6 hours of sleet... whoa! We have ice in our forecast for Friday and Saturday but who knows what will be happening by then... I don't want NO ice! Yay for your power staying on. I think that is a very nice "ussie", Madi!

  20. glad you had a great birthday. :) our driveway looks similar. we didn't lose power, thank goodness and I cooked a roast in our new pressure cooker. we had open face roast beef sandwiches..yum! I think today is a pizza day. :)
    do you have street lights in your neighborhood or around town? we've noticed, compared to Orlando, that the neighborhoods here and even major highways are lacking street lights. we don't like it, especially with all the deer. :(
    we're still house hunting. lol

  21. Full steam ahead (and maybe it will melt the sleet/snow)! We are on standby for freezing rain on top of our snow!

  26. I am glad your mom enjoyed her birthday. We get sleet far more than we get proper snow and I don't like it because it is cold wet and slushy on my paws.

  28. Oh no, I missed her birthday! Hope she had a most wonderful day filled with all kinds of fun. Also, hope you had a very Merry Christmas! We don't have any snow up here, but it is COLD. Your neighborhood looks so pretty covered in white!
