Okay its not THE Pond - as some call the ocean. And it is not just A Pond - as in smaller than a lake. It is a lake! I enjoy living on it and spending time on my back porch listening to music, gazing at the lake and pondering.

Spring or Snow?

The temperature rose to 69 degrees on the pond today - the sun was bright as I drove home from work. It had me thinking of Maverick's baseball team and their practices and the season looming large on the horizon. Spring was on my mind!

Then As I settled in to check my email a note from my sister popped in. Up in Chicago they are expecting another 4 to 8 inches of snow! And she sent this picture of her house before the next round of snow began. I have to admit I have never seen that much snow at one time. Let me add I don't really want too either.

Don't misunderstand, I like snow. I like to look out the window at it if I can stay inside with warm clothes and hot cider. It is especially pretty up here at the lake. Here is a photo from our back porch of a little snow we received November 30, 2006.

Yeah, tomorrow it won't be as warm as today but I got a taste of spring today and I am looking forward to warmer days again soon. However tonight wind advisories have been issued. After all, this is Oklahoma - where the wind comes sweeping down the plain.

Trisha is right... lots and lots of snow. We built an igloo and we could all five sit in it comfortably. Susie (Trisha's parole officer.. she has been posing as a minister's wife for YEARS and does a great job pretending to be a law abiding citizen)
