1st snow of winter 2011

Saturday, October 29, 2011

Well, it isn't even Halloween yet and we have already got our first snow of this season. We got about 2 - 2 1/2" and it has just started sleeting. We are under a warning still until 2:00 this afternoon. There is a huge chance of large power failures because the leaves are still on the trees and it makes the branches heavier and they could fall on power lines. We have our generator ready and plenty of gas.

    It's gorgeous! I woke up to lots of heavy rain, but it changed to sleet about 1pm and it's been snow for the last hour or so.

    It seems a little early to me, but then we used to live in Minnesota and there were several years we had snow for Halloween. The last year we lived there on Halloween we had 16 inches!

    WOW! That looks pretty but I still don't like snow, lol. I hope you don't lose power, but at least you have the generator ready.

So far we are only getting rain, and I hope it stays that way.

    Frightening!!! It does look pretty but, really?? Already?? Couldn't it just wait another month or two??

You are right to plan for the worst but I hope everything is okay by you.

    There are some strange thing going on this week -- with the nutrition tracker and with spins. Mine said I hadn't spun the bonus wheel and I had. Also that repeating header is still happening with the traditional food tracker that they emailed me was fixed.

Hubby in Whirlpool...lol...

Friday, October 28, 2011

We are in the process of renovating our master bathroom. We have taken the tile from the floor and took off the tile that was attached to the sides of the tub. We worked really hard moving cabinets for the upstairs bath and were figuring we were going to be sore. I asked did we want to do a whirlpool soak and as you can see, the answer was yes. Remember,,,,,,,we are renovating so in one of the pictures, you can see the whole under side of the tub with it's pipes, wires, and motor....lol...Actually we are putting wood panels around the tub that matches our newly made cabinets. Pictures to follow when all is done.

Covered with bubbles:

Windmills at Mt. Storm, WV

Friday, October 28, 2011

We were in WV a couple of weeks ago at Hubby's hunt club which is at Mt. Storm, WV. There is a nuclear power plant there and we saw all of the windmills. I am putting just a few of the pics. The leaves were starting to turn, but weren't really that pretty,

    I wished I had known! It only takes me about 45 minutes to get to Mt. Storm. We often go there and watch the scuba divers go into the water. The water is warm enough year round for them to dive. Those windmills are something! Some are getting put up in Keyser which is the town we shop in, about 35 minutes in the other direction!

My Beautiful Rio Samba Rose

Sunday, October 09, 2011

This is the end of this year photo of my beautiful Rio Samba rose by Jackson Perkins. I brought this rose with me from North Carolina. Before moving to NC, I had 2 of these rose bushes but had to leave them. One rose changes to all of these colors on one stem and finally ends up as pink. I want to share this beauty with all of you, my spark friends. Have a great day. Nancy
