Will It? or Won't It?

We were supposed to get one on Sunday.
We escaped.
It landed "Up North."

You know,
we haven't had one
all winter.
Not ONE!

The warnings are out
for tomorrow.

Rain.

Sleet.

Wind.

Snow.

More Snow.

8-12"
of snow!

Freezing rain.

Inches of freezing rain.

As in,
it may be too heavy for power lines.

As a Minnesota girl,
this doesn't worry me.
But it does get me
just a little excited.

After all,
it's the END of February and
spring
is right around the corner.

Will it?
or
Won't it?

Time will tell.
And if  you don't hear from me for
awhile...
you'll know why!

I'm looking
forward to a nice,
long date with my Dear,
John Deere.

Well I hope it doesn't!!!
Calling for heavy thunderstorms here, tomorrow night...ugh!

It is so nice today, windows open and not even a hint of chill in the air...just perfect!

Guess I haven't been here for a while, saw the newer version of the comment thingy and thought "Now what?"

We are expecting lots of rain and storms tomorrow and Wednesday - not the white stuff though.

The way your winter has been going, I wouldn't count on the big snow, but then, it may surprise you and you could be in the dark (and computerless) for days.

you're too cute! i do hope you keep power, no matter what!

Gloria Hood said...

Well, that sure sounds exciting, or not!

Paula said...

Hope your dear John Deere has a cover. Stay warm and safe.

Ellie said...

Hurry up Spring - the winter seems to have lasted too long now!!!
Hope you don't get too much snow and that you don't lose power.

Rohrerbot said...

Sounds exciting....just as long as the plants haven't started leafing out yet:)

EG Wow said...

They've been pretty much missing us all winter too. Anything that arrives this late in the season doesn't last long. :))

Judy said...

I get excited about a coming snow storm. We've had such a mild winter here, I wouldn't mind getting one.

Southwest Arkie said...

The weather is changing every day here, and I am ready to put winter to bed. I hope you don't get iced..being without power is NOT fun!

Jackie said...

I am sooooo disappointed in this winter, We have not had any snow to talk about and none to talk about in the near future. Hoping we get the big storm in March that we can usually count on. I hope you get your snow, but I will be a bit envious.

In my whole entire life - I have never had a warmer winter! Sandie

Susan said...

We're supposed to get rain or maybe snow too! To me sometimes, spring is colder than winter!

Dar said...

Hey, kiddo, The entire state is supposed to feel this one. We got a bit of last week's fury but are not looking forward to this one....I think my man is bringing the generator in from the cabin, just in case. Stay warm and enjoy any of the snow you get....we do hope it isn't the freezing rain. Hunker down~~~

I don't mind snow, but can do without the freezing rain for the very reason you suggest. I like my electricity! Stay safe, dear. :)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Hope you weather whatever it is safely :-)

Madi and Mom said...

Hunker down Jill.
Have you heard what we Southerners do at even a hint of snow or sleet.
We all flock to the grocery stores to buy bread, milk and eggs. WHY!!??
If the power goes you can't cook but if you can cook I guess everyone makes French Toast!!

Wow Jill. Hope you stay safe and this passes by without any harm to anyone.
Keep warm and stay indoors.

Hope you don't get Slammed!!!
Stay safe!

It has hardly snowed here as well. I think we barely have four or five inches this entire season. But, that is just fine by me. If I see some headed this way, I'll try and fan it up your way. : )..
