Winter Wonderland

Because we have family living in Australia, Warren and I have been asked by countless people if our family is near the flooding.  We are happy to report that they are far away from the awful floods.  Our hearts are filled with sadness for all of those who have lost so much in the past couple of weeks.  Because we farm, the plight of those who have experienced several years of extremely dry weather and now horrific rains are especially on our minds.  Yet it is the loss of lives that is the biggest tragedy of the floods.    

In the Midwest we had some snow overnight.
Our guess is that 4-5 inches of new snow covered the ground this morning.  
 Nothing that hardy Iowans can not take in stride. 
Earlier this winter we had some lovely picture taking days.

Such lovely photographs.
We're snowed in here. Most unusual for us. But no one is complaining. Yet.

This is so beautiful! Snow pictures always make me feel wonderful, I never see it as cold or treacherous.
But I am not a winter person.
I just love to be cozy in my nest and hate getting cold!

Stay dry and cozy!
I am glad to hear your family is not affected down under from the horrible floods, unlike so many other of my blog friends!
