Nice Weekend & Weird Weather

 

We had a nice weekend despite the weird weather. Our youngest son James came down with my sister in law and family as they just live around the corner from each other , our oldest son  David couldn't make it he had to work . Saturday we had a family get together at my in laws . Lots of good food  it was a buffet and we had lots of  laughter and chatting up storms . It was good to see every one .

Talking about storms .The weather has been really weird . Yesterday it snowed a little bit and it was windy and cold, but today we had a snow storm all day and even a clap of thunder and a flash of lightning in the snow storm. That has been the second time I have seen lightning and heard thunder in the middle of a snow storm !

Papa and I filled the bird feeders early this morning , a good thing to . If your a bird person like me  watch and study them have you  ever noticed they have a feeding frenzy before a storm ? And that they did !

James went home with my sister in law and family as well  before the snow storm started and had to travel north east  2 hours drive the storm was coming up from the south west from lake Erie so they were a head of it , thank  goodness !

The snow storm started at noon and just finished and it’s now 8pm . It is that wet and heavy snow, if it was light fluffy snow it would be deeper then it is . It was so windy we couldn't see across the street the snow was blowing around so much being as heavy as it is . We must of got at least 4 inches today.

Every time Miggy went out she would run with her nose in the snow like a shovel then would roll in it and come up looking like this !

You are right about the weather. It sure is a mixed up year. This time of the year, the high is between 0 and 20. We have highs in upper 20's and Wednesday is predicted to get to 41. I just can't figure it out.

Glad the family got home safely. It is always nice to reconnect and catch on visiting.

Miggy wins the show, again!

Brrr! Now THAT'S what I call "Vinty Veather!" Glad your family got home okay! It reached about 79 degrees here today in sunny Arizona! I spent the afternoon at the pool!

I have often noticed the birds feeding voraciously just before a storm. they are excellent weather predictors.

I so love that face! Nice that you got some moisture though but am sure you could have done without the wind! Hope all made it home safe and sound.

You guys have had alot of snow, send some this way. We had a snow strom one year and it scared so many people to hear thunder and lightening they called the TV stations not knowing what was going on.
