Snow and Cold....Brrrr!!!

Up to four more inches in the forecast for today and wind gusts over 40 mph this afternoon. We have an artic blast coming through the area and the current forecast is for windchills as low as -40 degrees through Friday. Groceries have been purchased, the bird feeders have been filled, errands are completed for the week so this sounds like a great time to finish up the paint on the SpookyTime Jingles' update pieces.


Here is a peek outside at the falling snow and wind blowing the zebra grass over...already. The wind is suppose to increase by mid-afternoon--YIKES!

Just so you don't think I haven't gotten anything done yet this week here is a sneak peek at ""Val Entine". He has wicked marabou feather hair and a huge hat to hold it down, but he wouldn't have it any other way. He is on his way over to his sweetheart's house to deliver a little "something-something" for Valentine's Day. Such a charmer!!


Well, I need to get to work so better get the paint mixed for another day of play...I mean work! **giggle**

Stay warm and safe!
Laurie

Well ya better stay tucked inside, Laurie. Here too...we are in for another storm tonight oy! I am really tired of the cold temps...and all this SNOW!!

We have have like 36 below zero with the wind-chill factored in and w/o the wind-chill factored in....30 below. Today was 12 above, it felt wonderful! I never thought I would say that about 12 degrees above zero. LOL

Can't wait to see your Valentine pretties. Take Care Laurie...at least one of us is getting something done.

Toodles,

Hi Laurie,

I love Mr. Val Entine!

Can you believe this weather? It's soooo cold, I can't get warm! I sure wish we didn't have school tomorrow - but we do not have nearly as much snow as what you guys, Lincoln and Omaha have! This wind is horrific! I feel like we can't even keep the house warm, the floor is so cold!

Bundle up and enjoy your time inside!
