Coolin' out, coolin' out...


The Kansas City metropolitan area came through this week's ice storms relatively unscathed. The temperature never dropped to a sufficiently cold level to freeze the rain that fell onto the streets, though we did manage to get a crystaline sheen over our lawns and trees.





One of our next door neighbor's trees split down the middle and fell mostly into the street.

The really cool part is that a front end loader came by in the morning and moved a large portion of the branches into OUR yard. Maybe we can get Sam to take up whittling.

Still fits, Mom.

That is exactly why we live in Las Vegas-- definitely no ice storms. I'm glad it wasn't too bad. And yes Sam's shawl is darling.
