Winter Wonderland

"Oh the weather outside is frightful..." "It's beginnning to look a lot like Christmas..." Ok, what happened to February? Here in Wisconsin, it appears that winter is only getting started. (We could hope it's giving us one last hurrah before the season is over, but that's most likely only wishful thinking!) It began snowing last night and it hasn't stopped since. I believe we've gotten around a foot of snow over the past 24 hours and it's blowing around pretty well too, so we'll see how much we end up with when all is said and done. As you can see from the picture, the snowpiles at the end of the driveway are getting impressive! Joshua's glad it's snowing though, because that means there is shoveling to do and that's currently one of his favorite activities to "help" Daddy with. :-)

There were advisories against travel where possible this morning, so James has been working from home today. Although he's been occupied, it's been nice to have him around when I need more than 2 hands. It's hard to believe that just a few years ago doing his job from our livingroom would have been impossible, but with remote access to work and the ability to forward calls, he moved his "office" to home in just a couple minutes. At the risk of sounding really old and granny-ish I truly do remember when we were one of the few people I knew who had a computer at home!
