Quiet and peaceful and coldest day EVER!
It is so quiet and cold outside today. There are no cars on the road and I am the only one up here at my house so it is very quiet. It is very unusual not to hear a single car but if they were not garaged last night they may not start today because it is so cold outside. Sunday night we were forcast to get snow and about 1:00 a.m. it started snowing here but when I got back up at 5:30 we only had about 1/2 inch so I was kind of disappointed. It started snowing around 9:00 and it snowed hard for a while and within a couple of hours we had 3 inches and it snowed all day and we ended up with around 6 inches of the white stuff on the ground. It is gorgeous but the bad thing is that it also got very cold so you really could not enjoy it! We were forecast to get down to 0 or -3 last night but I have not heard what the official temp was overnight but at 8:00 this morning it is now 1 degree. It is not as cold here as it is in some parts of the country right now though. There are some gorgeous pictures on TV with all the snow and ice and some areas are down to -60 degrees with the wind chill so I am very thankful that we only got -15 with the wind chill and our power and water are still on. It is a record cold all over the country and it is not really going to be above freezing until Thursday. I pray everyone out there is staying safe.
