Crazy Weather

We have had the craziest weather this past week. We had snow for Christmas and it was cold. The following day we go to 68 degrees which melts all of the snow. We then have thunder, lighting, tornado warnings, freezing rain, and snow all within approximately twenty four hours. This is end of December not spring. We have had such strange weather the whole year. As the saying goes just stick around if you don't like it, it is guaranteed to change. We haven't had as bad as others have, but it is unusal for us to have the tornado warnings. I know the lighting sounded to close to the house for my liking. I have had lighting strike our home once, and I really don't care to have it hit again.

Looking out the window it is melting and the temperature says that we are up to 45 degrees. I think that is why the streets have not been treated because they thought that it would melt and they would save on the salt.

The New Year is coming and we will hope that it brings good things for all of us. The winter has been bad in respect to the terrible cold and the construction work is at a stand still for most of people. A lot of the people have put their projects on hold because they don't know what the economy is going to bring. I know at work we only have four people working at this time.

We had a good Christmas spent with family and friends. It made me tired to watch the boys play they have so much energy. The oldest two tried to take their Corgi puppy sledding, but he didn't care about that. He would sooner run beside the sled.
I am working on a few new projects and I need to get back to them. Happy New Year.

Hi the snow picture! We have had crazy weather here in Oklahoma and Arkansas for this time of the year too. I'm not complaining about the warm days at all though. :) Have a Happy New Year!
