Winter is back in Southwestern PA!!!

Saturday, January 18, 2014

This beautiful picture was taken by my dear friend Patty this morning. This is an example of what all the areas around us looks like today.



First thing this morning I shoveled the sidewalk to the newpaper box to get my newspaper fix for the day. Great cardio right off the bat!

Later I went out and shovel the driveway. It is so much easier to do it in small amounts, especially when it is only 17 degrees out without the windchill.


This is Winter weather in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Winter came back with a bang...but...


Spring is definitely on its way...it will just take a while. lol!!!

Be safe and stay warm if you are experiencing winter weather.

Be sure to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you and give them a great big hug. We are never promised tomorrow and need to take advantage of every day as our days turn into years!!! (((HUGS)))
Blessings, love and hugs,
Helen

    I enjoyed your blog!

We have been experiencing very Spring like weather --- no coats or jackets needed when outdoors --- sat on the deck in the warmth of the sun this afternoon. Just waiting for real January weather to come our way --- when it does, we will, once again, have scenes like those in the photos you shared.

God bless!

    Beautiful pictures!

63 days til spring; that sounds so close, just a little over 2 months!

I actually miss being able to shovel my own snow, it was great way to get a workout.

    IT IS VERY PRETTY, BUT I'M GLAD I DON'T LIVE IN IT, IT HAS BEEN IN THE LOW 80'S IN RIVERSIDE CALIFORNIA AND WILL CONTINUE FOR ANOTHER 2 OR 3 DAYS, BUT WE DO NEED RAIN REALLY BAD, I OPEN DOORS AND WINDOWS TO AIR OUT THE HOUSE.

    While I don't care for the cold, you're right that snow gives us a good workout when we shovel! And it IS pretty!
But I love the burst of color in spring. Who'd have thought there were so many shades of green?

    Helen, you know how I feel about sn*w. Yuck. Ugh. One of the few times the word "hate" comes to mind. Although RI is small, northern RI got from 1/2" (where John lives) to 1 1/2". Now they say that is nothing, but to me...it is no different than a foot. It really is difficult for me to understand why people think pictures with sn*w in the landscape are pretty or beautiful. Not to me. Yuck.

Stay warm! We have those single digits returning tomorrow. Got the blankets & sweaters back out.

Hugs & blessings.

    Thanks for the beautiful pictures. It's very pretty where you live!
I'm from near Pittsburgh (Kennedy) but living in Italy now. I don't miss the snow and driving in it....although here in the mountains it snows too but not as much.

    Hi Helen,
Thanks for sharing the photos. They do look spectacular since there's no snow in most parts of Australia - and it's the very opposite of the weather we've had in South Australia of late - 45 degrees Celsius (that's 113 F)!! - and many bush fires across SE Australia. I am looking forward to our Autumn!!
Hugs and blessings, Nattacia

P.S. - Here's some Aussie sun for you...

    I don't recall if you have said how Shannon is doing recently. I hope well.

That snow looks pretty impressive and you must have gotten LOTS of exercise shoveling it!

    Winter can be so pretty! We got our snow coming down right now. Just got rid of most of the ugly dirty grey stuff and now back to winter... enjoyed that little spring-like reprieve.. I got out to walk 4 times,,, didn't even realize it was that much....

So, the countdown is on... 62 days now, we're past midnite..

    The photos are gorgeous! The snow missed us but not the cold and this coming week is going to be back into the deep freeze!!! Guess my daffodils won't be up in February this year but I'm still thinking SPRING!!!

Stay warm and be careful shoveling!

hugs...Mary Anne

    Beautiful photos! It was 29 here today, warm and lovely compared to what we were getting! I enjoyed an half an hour walk on one of our easier wooded trails!
Have a Blessed Sunday!

    And here I was complaining about 36 for a low and 57 for a high-I guess it is all relative to where one lives. Next summer when it is so hot we will all be wishing for cooler temps-just no pleasing us it seems.
