Having spent the last 2 years in Arizona and before that living in Florida, it's been quite some time since I have experienced cold weather. Since moving to Kansas, I've seen my share of cold and wind and it's not even officially winter yet! They've been forecasting snow for the last couple of weeks and we've had only a flurry or two. The prognosticators called for snow last night and when I awoke at 4:00 this morning and looked outside I saw nothing, but we have wind gusts up to 45 mph.
Two hours later I went to the back door to put the dog (Bagel) outside and we were both shocked to see an inch or two of snow. Now Bagel hates rain, she doesn't even like to get wet and she didn't know what to think about this stuff. I had to drag her outside and after five minutes she was ready to come back in. You know, she might get her paws wet!
Anyway, A'Lisa made it to Boise to be with our son Alex. When she returns home she may be surprised to see everything covered in white. I wasn't dreaming of a white Christmas but it looks like we're going to have one!
