Tuesday Thoughts.

Up ant 04:30AM and had coffee with my pretty bride, it was about 15 degrees outside, Rigg’s went out and came right back in as  fast as he could.

Donna left for the truck company and I went in to my room and there was Rigg’s already on the warm bed. I put a train movie on and we both napped for awhile.

I got up and went in the kitchen and when I looked out the kitchen window this is what I saw.


Yep snow, and still coming down in big flakes.

Oh well I had no plans to go anywhere today, we ended up with only a few inches and the temps never got out of the teens today. I am going to talk my son into taking the dumper down since it’s to cold for me.

The pups go out do there thing and run back in. Sadie is a trip she is so short I have to go and sweep a spot for her to go without getting her butt in the snow.

Rigg’s loves the snow but doesn’t care for the cold temps, if it was in the 30’s he would be out playing in it.

Never did say snow on the news or the Google weather but here it is. It just snuck into to Dardenne Prairie. I think one of those big Alberta Clippers with the 4 R3500 engines with dual contra rotating props must have flown over and dumped the stuff. Ya ever seen one of those Al.

Reminds me of the days you could still buy a brand new Veeblefetzer right off the showroom floor. Boy those were the days. Up in Canada the Montreal Veeblefetzer Works made em under a different name, I think they called em a Mossmagator or something like that, again Al would know.

Nothing is going on here at the Ranch the kid’s are gone and Andy, Samantha, and I have stayed inside where it’s warm.

Hope everyone else misses the snow, and gets warmer weather. Especially if your south and went there to escape this kind of stuff. I hope this is our last, I think if I have my way we will be in Mexico next winter.

Everyone be safe out there. Sam & Donna……


  1. Lovin' in here in the Rio Grande Valley. Will hit 80's tomorrow. Yup, not missing the snow at all.

  2. The wind chill was -15 this morning. Snow coming tomorrow. Next yr, Florida will seem like heaven after this winter.

  3. I wouldn't mind being in Mexico right now. Stay warm.

  4. All tucked in here at Leesburg but it got down to 41 degrees last night...However, it was 12 degrees in Illinois...so we are doin' just fine, thank you.
