Close call

It was touch and go this morning in Empire. When the snow moved in, I started wishing I'd bought more gas for the generator, and dug out the snow chains.

We took the critters out to do their business in case the white stuff got too deep for them to navigate.

Once outside, it was hard to see more than a few feet in front of our faces. The wind out of the north bent trees and turned pinecones and sweetgum balls into projectiles.

Thankfully, Mother Nature was kind to us and we didn't have to call out the National Guard. 

As you can see by the picture below, it was a close call.


  1. Okay, you pulled me in....... But it was a good big smile. But I do bet you are cool. LOL
    Hug the pretty lady and stay warm.

  2. Hope you have a snow blower...or a straw.

  3. Whew! It's good thing the dogs went out early. They might have been lost in all that accumulation.

  4. It's hard to believe how fast the weather can change. We still have lots of leaves on the trees but snow on the ground, making it impossible to to any leave raking. Lots will be need to be done when the snow melts here. Glad you both were safe and didn't get hit with anything more than snow.

  5. Haahahh. I was feeling happy for you but now I kind of feel sorry.
    Hugs, Julia

  6. The story was hard to believe. Glad you took a photo of the proof!

  7. Hahahaaaa...yes well, we got a foot of snow
