Good Morning

Morning Snow

Is it a good morning when it looks like this? Admittedly it looks very pretty, one of those wonderful snow scenes, seen from my front garden, but what does it hold for the roads. Actually I do not think it will be too bad, It is no longer snowing and I hear the snap crackle and pop of slowly melting snow, meaning that if the weather behaves I will have a clear road this afternoon.

Mr. Swiss has decided to make an excursion this afternoon with me at the wheel of the car. Nothing exciting, but he needs a new mobile phone and we will be paying a visit to the mall where there is a store. Yes, even golden oldies like to keep up to date with their electric appliances. I said only if the roads are normal, and as rain has been predicted today, it looks like it will be all systems go. Mr. Swiss said I have new Winter tyres on my new car, so there should really be no problem. Β I hope I also have the Winter driving programme on my body.

At the moment I am suffering a little from cabin fever as there are no wheelchair rides in weather like this. I can only see the outside world from my home. Yesterday I had a shopping morning in the supermarket, but the roads were clear. The big snow came only in the afternoon and it looked like this.


Even the sun and some blue sky with clouds decided to put in an appearance.

Today there is a little action time as the bed linen will be changed. Mr. Swiss used to do the heavy duty stuff, but can no longer without my help and I need help from No. 1 son to put the fitted sheets on the mattress. He is at work in the mornings, so will do the necessary this afternoon after lunch, although last time we even managed it ourselves. Depends on whether we are having a good day or not so good, and Mr. Swiss is still hugging the bed. The biggest excitement I had yesterday was when my stick holder broke on my walker. I ordered a new one and realised in the meanwhile that it was not broken after all. No problem, I can always use an extra one.

And I will now move on whilst watching the snow melt (I hope). Hope your day is a good one and everything under control.

  1. Good Morning! I just got to work. It is expected to be a nice day here. Rain is expected tomorrow afternoon, and several days afterward, which I know does not sound too appealing, but for us, it is RAD.

      • I would like to see snow again, but not here. Not only are we not accustomed to it, but it is very damaging to the redwoods. It sometimes snowed very lightly in my former neighborhood. If a little bit of it stuck to the trees, the little bit of extra weight broke the limbs. I know that the trees recover, but it is very messy and saddening to witness.
