First Snow

This is the view from the kitchen window into the back yard this morning.

When I plodded into the kitchen to start the coffee, I pulled up the blind on the back door, and this was what I saw. For an hour I walked around and made noise, hoping hubby would wake up. I put a couple leftover tacos in the microwave (yep, my favorite breakfast is leftovers, especially tacos!), and the microwave turned off and so did the lights. Uh oh. I put on slippers and trudged outside to the side of the house and could not figure out how to open the circuit breaker box. Dang. So when hubby got up I had two surprises for him. Snow. Circit breaker emergency. It was an emergency by then because I now had cold coffee.

Hubby remedied the electrical delay and we have been enjoying hot coffee and blogging while we watch the snow still fluttering outside. Warm and cozy inside.

Way to go hubby! Hot coffee and blogging are essentials on a Saturday! We had our first snow today here too. The kids are excited :)

Snow already?!
Aw Jeez...
I'm glad you're enjoying it, though.
Let hubby show you how to work that circuit breaker box - the bada$$ homemaker we all aspire to be would! *LOL!* ;)

It has been quite cold here and some snow on the higher elevations but nothing to speak of at our place, nothing that stayed long anyway but we expect if at any time now.

I love snow days. One of the things that I will miss living in Australia is snow. Just don't get it here - a bit in the Victorian mountains, but not here in Meditteranean SA.
