Douglas Dam on 02/05/2013

This is one my pictures of Douglas Dam on 02/05/2013, a few days after the heavy rains and flooding. They had five of the spillways open which has only happened once before that I can remember and that was when Stephanie, Shanna, and Christopher were little.  The picnic tables in the camping area below the dam were flooded over and it looked like the river came almost up to the rim of the hill.

Winter wonderland today

We woke up to a winter wonderland this morning.  Not a lot of snow but a blanket of white and it is still snowing.  The kids are out of school so I turned the alarm off and just let everyone sleep.  I let the dogs outside for a little while, but other than that it is a very quiet morning for me.  There is no traffic on the road down below my house - so not even a distant car sound!  It is still snowing and the wind is blowing pretty hard still.  It must have been blowing the snow around really well because I have snow all over my porch and all the way up to my front door. Even though I am ready for spring and some warm weather, I still love the way it looks outside with snow covering everything and I know my granddaughters will be wanting to go out and ride their sleds.  This is a very wet snow, definitely snowman and snowball type of snow, so I hope everyone who has to be out and about will be very careful because it would be very easy to slip and fall.  I would post a pic on here but Amiti still has my camera.

Marc is still asleep for now so I have a quiet house to myself for a bit before he gets up and starts work and I think I will sit back with my cup of coffee and a warm blanket and watch it snow for a little bit!  I pray that everyone can take a moment just to enjoy their surroundings and the wonder God surrounds us with no matter where you are!
