7 inches of snow

Oklahoma experienced another winter storm last Thursday and Friday. Thursday was the dreaded ice storm (1/2 - 1") which caused our power to go out for about 12 short hours -- not days. It went off around 9 PM was back on around 9 AM. Since was was primarily while we were sleeping, it wasn't a big issue.

Without electricity, we did got a little board so, I enterained us by playing the piano. Candlelight wasn't bright enough so hubs sat in his easy chair and shined a flashlight on my music. Before long, he begain saying that his arm was getting tired -- pitiful , pitiful-- a very small price to pay for such great entertainment =)

Friday, I shot the above picture of the pond by our house. The snow was only about 1 1/2 inches in this shot. About 5 hours later, there was 7 inches on the ground.

We went to a friend's house to play some games and enjoy the snow. The snow was deep and as we began to drive off, hubs totally missed the driveway and we got stuck in the deep snow. We tried several things to get it out but in the end called our son who has 4-wheel drive to pick us up. They went back today to try to pull it out but could not find a safe place to hook up to the car, so it is still there. A man in our church had a car dealership and he knows where to hook to it so they will go Monday to get the car. We have another vehicle so it's not a big deal to be short one for a couple days.

I drove to our friend's house, and am I ever GLAD that I was not driving when we left! =) He would have teased me unmercifully and the whole church would have heard about it! I thinking . . . I'm thinking . . . do I want to exercise the golden rule here? What would you do?

Hmmm... I think you need to share the story with your church. lol My good friend is a pastor's wife and she would tell the story. ;)

Enjoy your Sunday!

I love the picture of the pond. That's beautiful.
I've really enjoyed staying home these past 4 day!
I just posted some pictures and wrote about it.
The first two days Danny was home and we really enjoyed ourselves and then yesterday and today I've been alone and have been able to catch up on some things. I watched the first session of the Revelation study again and thanks to you have my notes all straight now. :)
Enjoy and y'all stay safe!
Love ya,

The snow storms at the end of last week and into this weekend were west and/or south of us. We didn't even get one flake. Bummer - - - I LOVE snow.

Oh well, it is cold enough here that we STILL have our last snowfall on the ground.
