Thunder Snow

Saturday there was a rare occurance - thunder snow. It's very odd to hear thunder & see lightning while it's snowing. Pretty cool though. The snow was coming down fast & furious for most of the day Saturday in Lawrence. There were blizzard-like conditions. I was glad to be safe & warm at my parents' house. It was another brilliant weather forecast - some rain & a trace to 1" of snow - nothing much. We got about 5" and it was drifting from the gusting wind. You can see the pile up on my parents deck and on my car.

A Festive Weekend

It was predicted Wichita would get 6-8” of snow Friday night into Saturday. We got just over 2”. I’m happy, it’s enough snow to give us a pretty coating of white and not enough to cause major travel problems. And I just have to say…the new house color looks fantastic in the snow!

Friday night I attended a “tacky Christmas sweater” party. It was fun, lots of hideous sweaters. I was delighted with the tackiness of my find but every time I went to cross my arms, I scraped my thumb on the baubles decorating the trees on it.

I went to Kansas City with a group of friends last weekend. It was cold but the weather was not as bad as expected. Nothing terribly much to report. Wandered around the Plaza. Played with iPhones at the Apple Store. Ate way too much food.

Tanya, I found my penguin.
