Winter Wonderland

Wouldn't you know, last night I had a dinner scheduled with former work buddies.  Worst snow day of the year so far!  But, I bundled up and went out.

 It took me a half hour to get to The Lake House - it's normally a 12 minute drive.
We had a wonderful evening.  The place was packed!  Great Wednesday night attraction - half off drinks and half off all appetizers.  So we drank and munched!
We headed out to the parking lot, my car was covered with snow and dah! snowbrush.  Wello, we haven't had any snow so .....didn't even think about it.  Joni came to the rescue and made me get in and warm the car while she cleaned my car off!  Thanks J!
Onward;;;;thank goodness Diane was leading the way down Seaway couldn't see the was a white out.  No tracks either.  Oh my gosh!

That's out my windshield!  Got home safe and sound.
All that blizzard like stuff resulted in this beauty this morning.

And look who came to visit.


  1. It is truly beautiful in your photo's this morning. Glad you made it home safe and sound. We have been seeing your white out conditions on the weather channel. Stay safe.

  2. Hi Barb,

    I love your photos. The snow makes everything look magical doesn't it?

    Stay warm and safe and have a great weekend.


  3. The roads looked a bit scary. It is always great chatting with old friends. Your doggie looks a bit puzzled, like what in the world is all this stuff. LOL Hugs Judy

  4. Try navigating those roads at 7am when it is still dark. Yuck!!

  5. Best part of the night . . . Cooper at the door!

  6. Hey Barb, You are a brave one. great meeting up with old friends, but I an chicken when it comes to driving in the snow! Have a great weekend. Love, Penny
