I guess today isn't a good day to sit on the deck for coffee & donuts. I know other parts of the country have been pounded with snow and ice storms, but in Montana it's been below normal. We finally got some good snowfall last night. I was listening to the weather radio this morning and they are saying Glacier National Park is expecting over 8 inches before 5pm with winds up to 35mph. They're saying the low will be -40 to -50 degrees. We're about an hour south of the park, so it won't get that cold here. If I wasn't afraid of the car breaking down and us all dying, I'd love to go up there to experience it. I'm talking about getting out of the warm car, saying "Brrr!" and then getting back in the warm car. I've never felt it that cold before. They're saying for our area to expect temps in the -20s though, so I guess that will be close enough. I think we're due for more snow today as well as all of next week. I spent 40+ years in sunny Southern California, so all this snow & cold stuff is still fun for me.
Oh, and since I've been posting about some of the crafts the kids have made, I thought I'd put up a picture of what they did yesterday. We traced their hands on black foam and then they glued cotton balls on them to make little lamb ornaments. We added a loop of ribbon and they look really cute hanging on the Christmas tree. It's a good thing we have a 9 foot tall Christmas tree to fit all these ornaments. If we keep at it, I might have to start looking around for a taller one. We have about another foot we can go in the corner of the room. If we were to put the tree in the center of our great room, we could probably fit a 15 foot tall tree at least. I made 4 more angels out of recycled Christmas cards last night, so I just might have to find a taller tree!
