To Brighten the Day

(c) Misty DawnS

Well, everything is closed down here due to the "Blizzard of 2011". Over the past few days, I watched our area on the weather map go from off yellow (hazardous weather advisory) to blue (winter storm watch) to pink (winter storm warning) to red (blizzard warning). Now, we are a light blue for wind chill advisories. It seems that February wanted to come "in like a lion" this year.

Last night, a neighbor and his son got stuck in the ditch. After Hubs pulled them out, they couldn't get down the road and spent the night at our place. This morning, we all sat and stared out the window at the high and long drifts across the road. We doubted that even a snow plow would make it through those drifts. So, now Hubs is out moving snow with his skid loader. I'm doing my best to keep the fire going in the woodburner and wondering if I'll be able to make it to work even tomorrow.

So, I thought this photo would be appropriate to brighten the day and remind us of what is to come... in a few months. ;-)

Now that really sounds like you are snowed in. Fun! And you have company, even better. Stay warm and enjoy the coziness. :)

The groundhog apparently saw his shadow so hopefully we'll see things like your photo sooner than later.

I hope you have enough wood to last until the worst of the weather is over.
Wonderful that your husband could help the neighbors with their vehicle, and you were able to give them a place to spend the night.
Your flowers certainly are a welcome sight today.

Misty -
Just back to thank you so much for sharing this at The Creative Exchange this week!


Yes...I could definitely use a little bit of summer right now. Wonderful shot. :)


So bright and cheery...just what I need to get over all this snow! :)


Hearing about snow and ice affecting Bloggers in the US and Cyclone Yasi across the globe makes me very thankful, for once, for the dull but calm, grey days we currently have. Nonetheless, a splash of gorgeous colour like this is always a treat for my eyes at this time of year. Lovely shot. :)


The sun is shining brightly in southern Ohio today, but the air is frigid. Cheery yellow flowers are a welcome sight! Lovely!
