The More The Merrier

It's snowing like crazy out there right now and the only thing that would make me happier is if it was coming down as rain.

We desperately need the moisture and when the weatherman said last night that our area was going to be bypassed by this precipitation dearest one and I looked at each other and frowned. I hope it snows all day. The farmers in our community need so much more moisture before they can even think about planting a crop. Our own farm land needs moisture, too. We have already had to plan for a secondary source of water for the cows.

As much as I love spring and all the hopefullness it brings, today I am quite content to look at the winter wonderland forming outside.

Absolutely--let is pour. We need it, too.

I haven't lived in snow since I left Chicago, but here in the southwest we do know drought. I'll close my eyes and picture the flakes and send you good wishes for rain!

I'm glad you are getting the moisture that is needed, one way or the other!

How lovely and unreal to read about snow. It's been in the 80s here. But we like snow. The rain tends to wash away here. The snow melts into the ground more slowly. And we need the moisture, too, after many years of drought.

Enjoy the winter wonderland!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your good wishes.

Gotta be thankful for what we have. Might as well enjoy a little extended winter. It'll be Spring soon enough. Hey, I'm from Chicago. I'm sticking with that story as long as I can!

Enjoy your snow. I'm happy to have already mowed my front lawn for the first time this year; but, at my age, am just thankful for each day however it comes. Got here too late to comment on "Monk". I've been reading him for over eight years, losing the link for a period in there somewhere, not always in agreement with him about everything, but always finding it an oasis complete with manna on the table. He will be greatly missed....

On the high plains of New Mexico we also know what drought is about. For us, we appreciate the snow, it seeps into the ground and doesn't just run off.

Of course, it does have a tendency to turn into something called mud, which is slick and sticks to your shoes so you stand 2 inches taller than normal.

We've had a lot of it this year, but I still say "we'll take any moisture we can get."

Hugs,
