Deja Vu

all over again!  Remember that I showed you my deck table piled with snow on Tuesday?





I went out shoveled it off on Wednesday.  The bowl in the center of the table was frozen down and I made no attempt to remove it.  There was a layer of ice about a half inch thick.





After yesterday's snow, here it is again.  I didn't get the official snow total for our area, but I think it was 10 to 12 inches.  It stopped snowing for a while in the afternoon then we had some freezing rain, where some of the snow may have compacted and then it snowed some more overnight.

This much snow would have crippled some cities and while not too many ventured out yesterday (including yours truly) today all the roads was clear by midmorning.  I had an errand to run around noon and had no trouble at all.

Today is Valentine's Day and if you leave me a comment you will get a surprise when you see the Word Verification for today.  I guess that Google has a heart and a sense of humor after all.

Happy Valentine's Day to you all!

Beautiful stitching on the gingko leaves. I love variegated thread too.

The amount of snow on just your deck would totally wipe out Columbia, South Carolina. We close when "it might snow". Though we had several inches of sleet just the other day, it is all but gone now ... and the city only owns a couple of plows that are attached to the fronts of dump trucks. Fortunately, the sun is out and the high temperature is supposed to reach 58 today.

Thanks for the comment on my blog!

Love the pictures of your deck. Just incredible, epsecially for us in Houston. We are running the air conditioners today - high was near 80 degrees. Anyway, I enjoy your posts. Take care and stay warm.
