Ok, here we go...........
We stopped at Cabela's on our way home from Minnesota. This is a picture of Jay reading about the elephant. It's really amazing what lifelike poses they put the animals in. It makes them appear so real.
School got out early as another blizzard started to come through, bringing dangerously cold temps along with it. I had a doctor appt for my neck/arm and didn't want to have to miss it, so Jay drove me there. This is the interstate...it was almost eerie how empty it was.
These 2 girls were stuck in the deep snow trying to get out of their driveway to go to school, so after we dropped Austin off, we helped pull them out. I say "we", but actually Jay hooked up the chain and pulled them out. I just happened to have come along for the ride.
We have an electric water dish for the outdoor cats to be able to have fresh unfrozen drinking water. When the dish is empty, cats take turns sitting in the dish to get warm.
This was the temp at 2:00 in the afternoon - that's supposed to be the warmest part of the day.
Today was the first somewhat decent day as far as the weather goes that we've had in quite a while. Roads were clear and the temps actually got above 0. After my doctor appt, I ran a few errands that I had been putting off, then decided to do a little shopping at the mall before heading home. Jay had given me a gift certificate to a handbag store, so I bought this purse. All the bright colors help me think of Spring.
There was no way I could narrow down today to just one picture, unless I showed a picture of bleachers, which is what I sat on almost the entire day. We started off in the morning at Austin's basketball game. Then we ran home so he could shower, and we headed to Ashley's college. They had a basketball game this afternoon and her team danced on the sidelines and also performed at half-time. After that, we headed back to our school gym where Jay is one of the assistant coaches for a nearby high school basketball team who was playing against our school. So, I combined shots from all 3 games into one collage type picture.
