Here's the view of our backyard. We have had a relatively mild winter--until now. There is a lot of snow on the ground here in NJ. When I woke up this morning, it did not look too bad. Hubby got out the snowblower and cleared the driveway. Today was my first scheduled assignment as a eucharistic minister at Mass--so we figured I ought to show up--snow or no snow. Catholic churches do not close due to snowstorms--at least none that I have ever belonged to. The day I was confirmed there was a foot of snow on the ground, but the confirmation went on as scheduled. Of course, that was a long, long time ago. :^)
We took the Jeep to church which is less than a mile away. Even with four-wheel drive, we slid here and there. Fortunately, there were very few other drivers on the road. There were also very few people who came to church. Coffee and doughnuts were cancelled. Hubby was disappointed.
While we were in church, another six inches of snow fell. We went home, slipping and sliding here and there. It is still snowing. It looks rather lovely, but it is not a good day to drive anywhere even if you have a four-wheel drive vehicle. It's a good day to stay in and drink hot chocolate.
