level 3 snow alert

is this a cool picture or what...
within 24hrs we

received 14 inches of snow and along with that came the level 3 snow alert..

which means no leaving your home unless it is an extreme emergency!!!!

so i took adavntage and worked on artfest trades.. and that is all i did!!

look at our sun porch, doesnt it look sweet all covered in snow..

the wind was seriously blowing!

look at this boy...he certainly adores the snow..

he had to be coaxed in with treats.....

this is all for now as the weather is playing tricks on my computer

and my patience is NIL....
