Another Snow Storm!

We have had lots of snow this winter here in St Louis. Our usual cumulative total for a winter season is around 17.5 inches. This year we have had way more or maybe it just feels that way! Today we are expected to have anywhere  from 8 to 12 inches. It has been coming down at the rate of an inch or two per hour and we have had THUNDER snow! I just finished shoveling off the front stairs and porch and I took a couple of photos.
I brushed off the snow so I could feed the wildlife a little extra

Carlos is wondering how long he can hold out. He hates winter and he can't retire for at least another year and a half. He saves up all his days off so we can go to Merida for a month in December, so he can't even escape to Florida to visit his sister. 
But I can! So this Friday I am off to Florida where I will stay with his sister pre and post cruise (5 days) and will float around in the Caribbean for seven days on the Norwegian Epic. My friend Mary will be joining me on the cruise, along with 4,100's a huge ship.

So I will soak up a little sunshine, snorkel and float in the Caribbean and dance until dawn (not likely but it sounds good) for almost 12 days!


  1. Have a fun trip!! We are leaving for the US on Wednesday...will return in December...I'm like Carlos...trying to hols on a little longer!!!

  2. Yuck - snow. We have to venture back to Alberta to clear out our house that just sold and are driving over a mountain pass in two weeks - not looking forward to that as Alberta got a huge dump of snow this week too. So happy for you that you get to go on a cruise - take some pics for us!
