NOW it looks like Christmas

I couldn't help it - my body woke me up before 6 a.m. I knew the
snow had been falling all night, but this is amazing. And it's not finished yet! I am SO grateful for heat!

Susan at Stony River won the prize for the license plates. The prize is a 2009 White House Historical Association tree ornament. This year's features Grover Cleveland. Do you think someone named Grover could get elected today? I think too much association with Sesame Street's Grover...not exactly a Presidential figure.

Anyway, here is what the ornament looks like. We get one each year for our tree, and also purchase one for my mom's tree. This year she's going to be here with us! She flies in on Tuesday. I'm so happy - she's the BEST!
UPDATE: They'e changed it to a blizzard warning now...even MORE grateful for heat, and electricity, and running water and the internet!

Thom, you would NOT want to be a bus driver here today. YIKES!

Susan, that pointy-ear thing might have something to do with the water in Ireland? Ha ha
