Temperatures are warming right up! We're up to a whopping 15 degrees with a wind chill of 8; yesterday at this time we were at -14 actual temperature. That means that, right now, we are nearly 30 degrees warmer than we were at this time yesterday! Wow! Temperatures really are warming right up!
Our hearts go out to the millions across our nation (especially those in Texas) who are without heat and power right now, as well as to those that are working out in this relentless weather to rectify the problems. We are covering all in our prayers for warmth, safety, protection, and that every need would be met. I wish there was more that we could do. 💔
Here we are getting the second round of snow that was forecasted.
Yesterday was beautiful! Cold, but sunny! I went out in the afternoon, cleared my car off, and warmed it up. Then, I ran it back and forth to open up a clear path before the second round of snow. I'm glad I did! I believe that this second round could turn out to be deeper than the first.
This picture isn't much to look at, but, to the left of the
birdbath is a tire-turned-planter full of prickly pear cactus.
It is completely covered and only the very tip-tops of the
yucca plant behind it can be seen poking up through the snow.
My car was completely clear of snow when we went to bed last night. This is what it looked like when we woke up this morning...
Amber went to town yesterday and was kind enough to pick up and deliver a new 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle for me to work on. It's a painting of a lake scene called Eagle-Eye View. I plan to start on it this afternoon and, working on it between doing other things, it should keep me busy for a day or two. I will post a picture of it when I'm done.
Amber also brought me this beautiful bouquet of Valentine's Day flowers that were on markdown. They're so pretty! 💗
Well, that's it for today. I do hope that you and your family are safe and warm in all of this. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Until next time...
