Thursday Happenings.

Up at 04:30AM and it was still dry outside, had coffee with my bride, Then she was off to the truck company. Rigg’s and I took a nap.

About 10:30AM I noticed it was white outside and when I looked there was already a couple inches of snow and still snowing. They have been really hyping this storm as a potentially dangerous combination of snow and ice in the St Louis News and weather.

Around 11:15AM I got an e-mail from Donna saying they were sending them home from the truck company. I watched the news some more and found out a lot of business’s and all schools and government offices closed today also.

Maybe they know something we don’t , it looks like it is slowing down out there, but it is supposed to go on and off all day and all night, so we will see what morning brings.The good news is in two day the temps will be in the 50’s and the snow will be gone.


                   During the early part of the storm.

Here is a picture of Adam and his new little sister Kya.


                                    Kya & Adam.

He is so happy he is a big brother now So far he said he would be his sister’s protector forever.

Sorry about missing yesterdays blog, don’t really know what happened, I thought I had posted and then about 9PM I was watching TV and thought hey I didn’t post today, had to give it an Oh Well to late now.

Everyone be safe out there be safe and hope your weathers better than ours, we will be inside and warm though with plenty of food and enough High Life to last until the weathers better.  Sam & Donna…….


  1. Adam will protect Kyra for the rest of his life........! That's just how those things go.. Hope the snow melts right away...

    1. Just got the news the Restaurant closed for today, so Donna will be home for the night. St Louis is shutting down the Governor asked everyone to go home and stay off the roads, so they must be expecting it to get worse instead of better.Glad you guys are in AZ and will miss this.We have plenty of food and heat ,even if we lose power I have my wood fireplace insert and the generator, so we will be fine..

  2. When we get snow in Scottsdale in AZ you know it's one humdinger of a storm. Sure glad to hear that Donna is safe at home with you and Riggs. I never had a big brother - just an obnoxious older sister.

  3. You can also use Rigg's as a blanket. ;)

  4. LOVE,LOVE,LOVE that photo of Kya and Adam...How wonderful for that little girl to have such a caring big bro'..This snow that's coming hear is called "heart attack" snow...You and Donna need to "walk AWAY from the shovels"..and "assume the position" in your recliners...It will melt.

  5. Well it started here around 7. Really coming down sure hope it doesn't build up too much. Hope you don't get too much more snow. Oh my what a precious picture of Kya and Adam. They look so peaceful and they already look a like.

  6. Big brothets are so special. I have three and they still are my protectors to this day. Love the precious picture of new brother and sister. Please stay warm and safe. Bundled up here in AZ for a few days.
