Here in Crystal Lake, we got about eight inches of snow yesterday and into last night.  Its our first major snowfall of the season.  Of course Andy had to work and so did Emily.  They both drive a considerable distance on Thursdays so I am thankful for God's protection and provision of safety for them.

I'm also thankful for the timing in the arrival of Murphy's new winter coat....yesterday!  He was wearing a hand-me-down from Charlie but his body is a bit longer and it didn't cover him well plus the velcro was not so sticky anymore.  So yesterday, when he had to go out in that white stuff, he was a much more well-protected doggy!  And how did he like the snow, you ask?  He loved it!  Wild and crazy loved it!

And this morning, I'm thankful that its NOT snowing!  There is a bit more in the forecast as a possibility later today and tomorrow but its not snowing now and for that I am grateful.

How's the weather in your neck of the woods?

Thank God for safe travel in bad weather for your family. We don't get much snow here. When we do, there's some crazy driving.

We were in the 60's yesterday but 40's today, which makes me wonder if we are ever going to get winter. (Not that I mind the milder weather.)

Well I'm glad your loved ones travels were safe. Glad the snow has subsided. They are even threatening us with snow for this weekend. Time will tell. Have a great weekend.
