Yes, we got snow!

Everything is covered with a deep blanket of snow.  Our grill greets us first thing as we go out the back door. 

Roger shoveled the sidewalks this morn first thing.  That was a lot of snow...he got the sidewalk leading to the garage and also to the side and to the front porch.  I think we got at least 8 inches.

But the main sidewalks, and where we park sometimes to the side of the house, and in front of our garage were cleared by this guy and his dad.

They go around and do almost the whole neighborhood...for free.  Oh, we give them a little something sometimes, but they don't want to take anything.  They have a blast doing it, but it sure helps us. 

We have been so blessed most of our life with wonderful neighbors.  With these neighbors alone, Roger will do stuff to help them or for them...and if we need anything, all he has to do is ask.  Such as when we went to hang the barn doors Roger made for the old garage...they were too heavy for me, and all he had to do was go ask them.

Their grandson needed some help with something with his bow, so he came to Roger for him to fix it.  And their grandson is such a good kid...he has stopped a time or two just to visit when Roger was out in the garage and he is interested in learning how to do stuff.  And part of the time, he would know what tool to hand Roger without him asking for it.

We are supposed to have low temps again the next couple of days...not even supposed to get above 10º F tomorrow...and supposed to be below 0 tomorrow night....so I suppose we won't be doing much.

Great snow pictures...especially the snow-covered grill. A whole new meaning to slow cooking.

I haven't posted pictures, but we got at least 7 inches out on our back patio. I swear it was drifted 18 inches deep on top of our gas grill!

What nice neighbors you have!

Stay warm!

That guy and his father are the neighbors' angels!!!

Try and stay warm...and enjoy the snowfall - from indoors looking out. LOL [that'd be me]

Such wonderful neighbors you have! We're supposed to have some cold weather continuing here as well, possibly into next Tuesday.

Wow---you all really got a lot of snow... Yipes ---and it's sad that here in TN, we got nothing at all... Even though we have had extremely cold weather this winter, we just haven't had much snow at all --compared to other years.

Nice of your neighbors... It's great to have good neighbors...

Stay WARM and stay SAFE.
Hugs,
Betsy

Good neighbors are the best, of course. As for the weather, I have a friend who says anything less than 10 degrees is not worth mentioning. I sort of have to agree because it's just degrees of bitterness (both temperature and mood - ha ha!).
