We had a blizzard here yesterday!!! This was the view out of my kitchen window, if you can call it a view. It started snowing with gale winds at about 10:30 in the morning. I've never seen anything like it. My neighbor Uli said in her 20 years here, neither had she. The few times I ventured outside my footprints were covered again in snow within minutes, as though I'd never been there. At around 6:30 I decided it was time to baton down the back door for the evening and there was dear Uli clearing the snow off my steps so that I would be able to get firewood the next day! I invited her in for a drink by the fire to warm herself inside and out. I warmed myself a little too... Please Lord, never let her move away.
