Stream of Consciousness Saturday

I know that I am in the minority, but I am excited at the prospect of getting 12 to 18 inches of snow over the next 36 hours or so.  They have named the storm Linus.  That doesn't sound very fierce to me though.  I guess we'll see.

I have lived in northwest Indiana my entire life and I love snow.  Last year was the first really good winter we have had in a very long time.  It was the kind of winter we used to have when I was a kid.  There was snow on the ground for a very long time and I loved it.  It was pretty.  It was fun.

The shelf ice on the shores of Lake Michigan looked like mountains.  It was fascinating.  Can I just say that this man had no business that close to the lake let alone have his child that close to the lake?  That was just stupid, but it does give a good perspective to the picture. 

If this storm fizzles out, I'm going to be really unhappy.  The kid in me wants lots and lots of snow.  I'd like to be able to get out the cross country skis and see if I can still do it.  I'd like to go sledding with the grandkids.  I'd like to go hiking at the Dunes. 

Come on Linus!  I'm counting on you.

  1. I WISH we had a decent snow! We got a trace of snow today and it closed schools early. Now we have some flurries, but nothing on the ground.

    Thanks for linking up!!

    1. Jaime, we got 16 inches and it was glorious. Absolutely beautiful and at one point this morning, the lake effect snow was so thick, it looked like we were inside a snow globe. We had a snow day from school.

  2. I typed this long comment and it didn't I go again...I'm so glad Linus didn't disappoint you! I have always loved snow as well. It makes everything look so clean at first. Love your always!

  3. i want snow!!!
