Dreaming Of A White Christmas? ---No Problem

Looking out my back door to the deck this morning reveals the results of our December snowfall... so far.

We have received approximately 35" of snow since December 1st, and another 12 inches is forecast for the next two days.

No, we do not live in Alaska:) We are in South Central Wisconsin.

It is very beautiful, but also this amount of snow along with the -25 degree wind chills this weekend have been very dangerous for travel.

We have a large fleet of snowplows and salt trucks working our highways and streets daily. This is truly our tax dollars hard at work.

God bless those drivers who get out in this terrible weather to make our travel safer!

Please be praying for all those who are out on the roads trying to get to Christmas destinations.

We have three sons and families traveling home Tuesday and Wednesday from Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Milwaukee.

Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas.

Wow Linda!!! That's A LOT of snow - we in Arkansas make a huge deal if we get more than 4 inches. I cannot imagine getting 35" + 12" more coming...

Take care!

Wow!!! that's beautiful!! ( I am sorry, there is no snow here. That's why I am so enthusiastic with it)

Wow, the snow sure looks pretty but I wouldn't want to be driving in it:) I hope your family makes it home OK without any trouble. My brother and his family live in Chicago. They will be staying home so I don't have to worry about them traveling. Have a wonderful Christmas, blessed and happy!

My brother emailed me pictures from Spanaway Washington... much the same as yours. He said they are pretty much home-bound. They don't have that many snow plows up there.

I'll pray for the safe arrival of your family and other's travel's too.

Merry Christmas!

Great shots of the snow! It definitely feels like Alaska (or Antarctica) with all this snow. :)

Praying for safe travels for everyone. Merry Christmas!

And there's me complaining because we had a measly minus 8 or so last night! Scarcely a flake of snow either - just a tiny bit of snow-drizzle! Thanks for visiting me at Codlinsandcream.
