And still the wind blows...

After a foot of snow and 40 miles an hour winds...we woke to piercingly blue skies. Drifts are piled everywhere as if whipping cream heaped in a bowl...It is still below zero if you consider wind chill and a chance of 3-5 more inches tonight, but for a few calm hours, I think I will go help out with the shoveling a bit.

Everything in my small town is closed...the courts...the library...boy scout meetings. Last night Aaron and Karen brought the boys out into the weather for an old fashioned turkey dinner with Valentine heart cookies for dessert. I let the boys decorate them. Matthew had a great time, although Jonah did not know quite what to do with the icing!

So, to all, Happy Valentine's Day, Happy Blizzard, Happy First Dress Rehearsal for the Monologues (if anyone can get there!!)

Lou Ann

Lou Ann Homan-Saylor lives in Angola, Indiana which is nestled in the hills of Northern Indiana. When she is home at the White Picket Gardens you can find her gardening or writing late into the night under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp. She is a storyteller, a teacher, a writer, an actress and a collector of front porch stories.
