 This was early this SONday morning. Currently at two minutes to five o;clock in the evening the backyard, with blowing snow has snow up against the garage side door up to the door knob. They did not tell an untruth when they said we were getting possibly 40 inches. I think 40 inches is about right and this blizzard warning does not expire until 12:20 A.M.

This is unreal. We are hearing this could crack the top ten biggest snow storms and this will be H U G E when it stops falling. These photos look relatively normal, but we are just watching it fall from our windows, at least the ones that have a slit to peek through since the howling wind, blew the snow up against our doors and windows.

Who knows if remote learning would even work and those working from home. TV viewing is spotty, so it using the internet. So you can't do much in a blizzard. We are thankful we have food and warmth and each other.

We were watching a TV program on a cable channel. The national news came on and we were the headline story. They said by the time this is over Denver proper will receive 52 inches of snow. We have no where to shovel anymore snow. We have two five foot drifts that Zach and Rebekah had shoveled. But we are still safe and warm so we can not complain. Avery made a big pot of red chili with beans and hamburger. It is yummy. We have eaten it twice. He made us a hearty breakfast of biscuits and gravy and bacon. He is pretty sure he will not be able to get into work. My neighbor with a giant truck is stuck so there is that!

Here is a thankful list:

SNOW: Grateful always for the moisture because we needed it. But hopeful may others are safe and warm and well fed.

PHAMILY: A huge priority keeping the five of us safe. Cats could care less but the dogs do like to go outside. So making a safe path is important.

FOOD: Always grateful for yummy goodness. I found an Edwards Peaches and Cream pie yesterday at the store in the frozen food section. We put a dent in that pie. HaHaHa ! With chili in the fridge and other goodies we are going to be ok.

WINTERWEAR: It is important to have good boots, coats, gloves, hats in this weather because it does get nasty. We are grateful to be prepared.

TIME CHANGE: The Spring Forward change doesn't seem as difficult as the Fall Backward time change. Grateful to have a bit more daylight but missing that extra hour. HaHaHa

I am going to be prepared for my Aw...Mondays post as long as this power stays on. Say a prayer for us. We could use it.

WOWZA!!! I'm so thankful wee Ella and her mommy are home from the hospital and Andrew doesn't have to try and navigate the streets. I'm guessing most non-essential workers and students don't have to report. Times like this I give thanks for all the police and first responders who can't stay inside. That chili and pie is making me hungry!

Praying for all of you, that this ends soon and you thaw out.
