I woke up this morning to the sprinklers running - which I knew was not necessary with the kind of weather we were predicted to have today. I ran downstairs and turned them off, then covered the back-flow valve in a small attempt at preventing it from bursting. I came home and Wayne had added another blanket and a light to warm it up. :) Then we added a plastic sheet. It is just such great timing that we finally started watering this week...and now we have a "blizzard" coming. Ha!
So far today we've had lots of sleet and hail (which hurt when it pelted your face). It just now turned to snow. (They're predicting something like a foot or two of snow- but our meteorologists generally exaggerate, so we'll see what actually happens). This pretty much means we will enjoy cozying up at home pretending it's too yucky outside to work too hard. And watching the Jayhawks play tonight. :)
Here's a view from our front door just now.
And Tyler playing his V-Smile with socks on his hands because he's too stubborn to wear a warmer shirt or socks (on his feet). Silly boy!
