What a week this has been, we have had three different rounds of snow, sleet and freezing rain starting early Tuesday, going through Thursday morning,we got 9 inches of precip.,then the rain came and temps. began rising late Thursday, with melting, and refreezing at night, with above freezing temps yesterday and today it all went away, well, mostly, we have just a little snow hanging around the woodlands.

|We left to run errands, came home six hours later, same view!|
Our children usually take care of the gifts! ~smile~ Son #2 and his family sent a special surprise, he called Thursday and told us to be on the lookout for a box, they have to give forewarning of gifts as our gate is usually locked.
We knew the snow would slow delivery of anything, so we left the gate open past dark, I thought I heard a truck and a horn blow, by the time I got outside there was nothing there, so DH went and locked the gate.
Long story short, this morning when I let Jack out I happen to look to my right, and there was this box, I was completely taken aback. When I read there were flowers in the box, I hurriedly took it in and got busy clipping and putting them in water. Whew! I was afraid being out in below freezing temps. last night and the warm sunshine this morning might have ruined them.
Not so, they were and are absolutely beautiful. I guess the guy was running late, and didn't take the time to ring the bell, I will excuse him this time, It's a good thing for him the flowers were doing well!~grin~
I took lots of snow photos, but figured all of blogland might be a little tired of snow, and like me are looking forward to Spring, maybe later. ~smile~
