Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

A good day to stay indoors

How about that? it has warmed up to 20 degrees. Brrrrr! I was scheduled to be at a clients home at 8am, did I go? no sir, I called in and told them that the roads were too slick. It really isn't worth risking having an accident and wrecking my car or being hurt, for the few dollars I would earn for a couple of hours work.

It all looks so pretty when the sun comes out, but don't let that fool you. There is a very cold wind blowing and there is ice on the roads under the snow. Last night as I snuggled under the blankets in my warm bed, listening to the local radio station in the Seattle area, I was so glad I was not out in the terrible conditions. The radio station was receiving calls from motorists, some who had been on the road, stopped for hours. There were stranded vehicles all over the place, some were abandoned as people decided to walk, jack-knifed semis, transit buses unable to make headway on the slick roads, fender benders and other more serious accidents as people were trying to make their way home.

Bunny tracks in the snow.
The bunnies were all waiting this morning for their food. Good thing they have fur coats.

The birds are cute to watch as they pull first one foot up under their feathers to warm it up, then repeat with the other foot. Poor wee things. I am making sure they have plenty of food.

Hope you have enough groceries to last until it melts in a few days!

I can only imagine and see on the news how bad the driving conditions are in the snow and ice. I'd stay tucked in too. Cute bunny tracks!

Wow, that is so much snow you have! We're lucky that we haven't had our first snowfall yet.

I am glad you are staying home safe and warm. We have plenty of snow too with a bit of sunshine too!
