Just living in a snow globe...:-)

Monday, January 06, 2014

What a winter wonder land. Here are a few photos taken today as I was out and about on my way to Church this morning.


My driveway this morning. Had to make a path just to get out. Then the roads were a different story - NOT PLOWED YET!


Neighborhood roads - pretty as a picture, for a snow globe...


Every turn more snow. Snow - everywhere snow...Gotta love it!

It’s finally stopped snowing although I finished shoveling by 3pm and maxed out my steps at over 20,000. Whoo Hoo does that mean I get two Glow Getter Awards today - he he he

Now for the deep freeze - saying by morning it’s going to be -14 below here and that’s not calculating in wind chill which there will be - blowing and drifting ... OUCH. In fact they've closed all schools, even the Chicago School system is shutting down and they never close!

So currently I’m at 5 for 5 with the New Year in my 10,000 steps per day, but we will see how tomorrow goes. I can’t imagine getting in that many steps just running around my house. If so, they’ll need to call the patty-wagon and put me in a padded room! I’m beginning to be to much of a regular around the stores so I’ll have to get creative tomorrow. No chance of being crazy in walking in -50 below weather - no way.

    Good for you in all those steps and shoveling snow is a real cardio workout, too. Put on some good stepping music and just walk your house if nothing else---about 5 sessions of 20 minutes should get you to 10000---LOL And I love your description of living in a snow globe!

    Glad you got your snow shoveling done! Quite a workout today. We're likely to get snow tonight on top of the ice that will form from the evening's rain. Tomorrow should be interesting, but at least not as cold as yours. Stay warm!
