The Calm Before the Storm

It was still above freezing when I woke up Tuesday morning. So, the drive into work was a non-event.

I went to Kroger’s at lunch and got a few things. Then I went home and made a ham sandwich. I ate that with a little cottage cheese on the side.

When I got home after work, it was 53 degrees F. I put my boots on and went out back to refill the squirrel feeder. I always do before a storm. Since I was out there anyway, I walked over to the raised bed vegetable garden to see how it fared over the winter. There was nothing going on there but it gave me an idea.

I trudged over to Jake's patio (the home of that beautiful purple crocus) and checked. Sure enough, the crocus was starting to come up!

Thank you, God! There will be a spring!!!

I took a picture for you and also took a picture of the state park grill which had finally thawed out (so I can show you how much snow falls tomorrow).

Back inside, I changed clothes and watched the news until 7:00 p.m. Then I warmed up the rest of the beef tips and mushroom gravy. I served that over the last of the leftover wide egg noodles. I will miss them both!

I watched NCIS and NCIS L.A. (both were reruns) and went to bed at 10:00 p.m.


  1. crocus are all under 15 inches of activity there!!

  2. Mine were, too until the two day thaw. Maybe they grow under the snow?
