For the boy who got the sled for Christmas, this is like manna from heaven!! He has had it out a couple of times, but it took some brakes when we were suffering the ice/sleet weather. and some imagination to go on just a couple of inches of snow. Now there is NO question about having enough. It is snowing steadily and supposed to continue for a week. Welcome to Western New York State in January!!Here is a pic of one of the local Bed & Breakfast places. Looks like a Rockwell setting... yes, we like it here in Findley Lake. it still a random act of kindness if you tell?? This morning on my way to work I was coming up to the fairly new little house snuggled into a wooded area and there was a mini van stuck at the end of the driveway, with a lady and a shovel and at least one other lady. Across the road was a service van and a man looking at some wires, not paying any attention to the van. I drove past, then stopped and backed up and parked. I grabbed my mittens and jumped out... said hello, do you need an extra pusher?? Oh, that would be nice. One had just finished with the shovel and they were getting ready for another attempt at OUT. One in the van and two of us pushing and it was free... did I make a difference?? I don't know if I was strong enough to make a pushing difference, but I like to think that by stopping to help a stranger, I put a smile in both of our days. I don't write this to pat myself on the back, merely to point out that I think GOD is always watching, and I hope sometimes I make him smile, too.

It is just like a postcard!! I love winter so this really does look like manna. We have had rain the past few days so all our snow got washed away. So now I guess I'll just have to find snow in blogland!

oh wow, the snow is so lovely on that B & B, it does look just like a postcard.

I live in Orange County, So. Ca..and right now we are having something called "the Santa Ana winds" they are really harsh winds that blow in from the desert, pick up speed through the mountains and hills and they are hot. Last night at around 9:30 we were driving home and it was 80 degrees! I went for a walk this morning and it was already 77 degrees! It's so hard to believe the rest of the country is buried in snow!

have fun with the sled!
