Thankful Mondays: Cold Weather Edition

Today I'm feeling grateful for:

New back tires on the van.

Anti-lock brakes.

Thinsulate.

Scarves and hats and gloves.

Hot tea and hot cocoa.

Four-kid-powered snow shoveling (with some help from the adults too).

House insulation and central heat.

The Department of Public Works.

Weather's been alternating here between zeroish with heavy winds and quite a bit warmer (20s and 30s) with snow. We're expecting snow to fall starting tomorrow morning at 5 am and not stop until sometime the night of Christmas Eve. Ah, arouind here we're not *dreaming* of a white Christmas!

Thanks Theresa! Yes, we are getting some great Christmas weather, but are hoping that we won't be completely snowed in on Christmas Eve. I guess we'll make do anyway! :)

Beautiful picture! And all great things to be thankful for. I'm thanking God daily for such things here, too, in our very wintery weather! :-)
