Snow Pictures


My PHOTOS are famous

My pictures were on the local channel 23 news this afternoon. Here are the pictures I sent in.

Here is what it looks like at 11:30 today. The sun is gone and it's snowing again.

Baby it's cold out

Here's what it looked like coming up our street yesterday. It took Mark 6 hours just to plow the driveway. We never did get my truck up the is still stuck at the bottom of the road.

This is our deck, anyone want to sit out in the sun LOL

It beginning to look a lot like a winter wonderland here in Frazier Park. We have over 3' of snow. It's so beautiful out. I would show you pictures but I had to leave my camera in the truck down the road. Neither one of our trucks would make it up our road. Mine is down at the bottom of our road near the stop sign. Mark got his to the driveway. He is out shoveling snow ...did I mention he can't get the snow blower to start :-( Poor guy.

We didn't get to come up until this morning because the 5 was closed yesterday afternoon when we planned on leaving. They closed it again today while we were on it. It's been years since I've driven in this kind of weather. Now I remember why I left New York LOL. I have to say it really wasn't that bad until we got to our street. The neighbor said they haven't plowed our road in two days. Both our neighbors our out with their snow blowers trying to keep ahead of the snow. I think it's a losing battle.

I was surprised to see all the stranded cars along side the road come up Frazier Mountain. One even had it's door left open where they had crawled out. I can't wait to get my camera out to the truck to take pictures. We've been here over 5 years and this is the most snow I think we have ever had and it's still coming down. If it keeps up like this all weekend we may not be leaving on Sunday.Don't you wish you were here snowed in with us. I will post pictures later.

I had a chance to take a few pictures today while I was waiting for Mark. I couldn't believe how dirty the shore line was today. Here are a couple of pictures I took this afternoon in Ventura. The water was so dirty there wasn't a surfer to be found from Pismo to Ventura....very unusual especially with waves as big as they were.

The 5 was closed today so we didn't make it to Frazier. We are going to get up early in the morning and leave. We are hoping it will be open tomorrow. They did reopen it tonight around 6. So we are hoping it will stay open.


POTD is Photo of the Day. I haven't been feeling well the past couple of days so I haven't taken any pictures. I must really not be feeling well....I am at my Son's helping out since he just had surgery and I haven't even taken one picture of my grand kids. I've usually taken 500 by now.

Mark called me last night and he took off Thursday so we are heading up to the retreat today so I am heading to Ventura at noon meeting him and driving to the retreat. I hope the roads aren't to bad that's over 6 hours of driving for me. Good thing I like to drive.

I have to load up the truck and go pick up my grandson from school so I better get going. Thanks for stopping by hope you have a great day.

Driving in the Rain

WHOOOHOOOOW it's raining! I love the sound of rain. We don't get a lot of rain here in Southern California so when we do I get very excited. Some of my favorite things to do in the rain are bake,read by the fire, or go for a drive. What do you like to do?

Today I get to drive to Pismo Beach. I am going to my Son's to help out for the week. He just had arm surgery and isn't suppose to be using it and of course he men ever listen when a doctor tells them something? My daughter-in-law is hoping he will relax a little more if I am there to help. We'll see....the good news is I get to see my Grandkids :-)

I am going to have fun getting my POTD today. We are suppose to have 30' swells at the beach today. I can't remember ever seeing the surf that high here in Ventura. I am going to stop and take a few pictures on my way out of town.

Have a great day I am headed out to play in the rain.

Possessed House

I think our house is becoming possessed. Every time Mark fixes something something else goes wrong. Maybe it's all the gophers. Look at how they are taking over the yard. You know Mark is usually out there hunting them but he's been so busy fixing other things he hasn't had a chance. Calling all Elmer Fudds we need your help to come hunt gopher's. We pay per gopher LOL

Sorry I never got back to put up my POTD I've been busy helping Mark. Here are a few photos I've taken the past couple of days.

There is a lLittle snow left on the mountian....until this week when we are suppose to get hit with a big storm. We have a group of people who are coming next weekend and bringing the kids to play in the snow. I don't usually hope for snow but I hope we get enough so the kids can go sledding and the parents a can relax :-)

I'll have to finsih the rest later. The house is acting up again LOL!

Baby it's COLD

Oh Baby it's COLD. We are at the retreat and I don't think the weather is much over 40 if even. Now you know that wouldn't be so bad because I only stay in the house but our downstairs heater just went out and we have a group of women showing up any minute. YIKES!!!! My poor DH if it's not one thing it's another. Good thing he works cheap LOL. Hopefully he finds the part and can get the heater fixed soon or it's going to be one cold night downstairs! The good news is the heater upstairs is working great.

I still working on my POTD. I wish I had a picture of an icicle it would be so appropriate for today. Ok it's not really that cold but you know what a WHIMP I am. I've taken a few pictures today but nothing that really excites me so I'm hoping for a beautiful sunset. I will post my picture later tonight.

Control of the remote

Do you have one of these? My DH always wants control of the remote....this is what happens when he has control. LOL Oh but WAIT THERE"S MORE. When I go to get the remote to change the channel he tells me he is watching what's on. How many of you have DH's like this? I think it would be fun to post a picture of them with a link to your blog....any takers?

With him watching his TV I've had a little spare time to do some crafting. Here is another layout I did yesterday. I loved the way my Daughter-in-laws Dad was looking at her in this picture.

I have to go find my POTD....have a great day!

DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!!! and your winner is

itsblondee said...
Happy New Year and Congrats on your new Grandbaby. I think my favorite memory during the holidays this year is when my grandson (18 months) participated with the whole family in making Christmas cookies. He rolled out his own dough, used cookie cutters and even with a plastic knife decorated his own cookie (with a little assistance from mom) I got the cutest pictures to use for his scrapbook. Well my vacation is almost over and then it is back to work. Hope you enjoyed your holidays - I will have to take my youngest son to see the new chipmunks movie (he is 11). Thanks for sharing the pictures of the grandbaby - take care.

Mark picked #1 and you were the first one to leave a comment. Congrats! If you will send send me your e-mail address I will get your gift certificate to you.

As many of you know we are remodeling around here, did you know it doesn't pay to clean when remodeling. Yesterday I dusted and vacumed and damped mopped the floors (which many of you know I don't do). Well when I got home from Micheal's after cleaning all morning this is what I came home to

My DH had decided he was going to work on the fireplace. We now have dust everywhere and I do mean everywhere. LOL

I have two pictures to share with you today. The first is of my Grandson Jason.Jason,his Dad and I hung out today waiting for Jason's Aunt Jessica to pick him up to take him home. I'm going to miss that boy. It was so much fun having him with us for the past week and a half.

This picture was taken yesterday. I am trying to organize AGAIN. I've been trying to find a temporary solution until Mark has time to finish my craft room. As you can see I'm not having much luck. Does anyone have any ideas?


I'm going to be doing the 365 project or a photo of the day (POTD) challange with Katrina Kennedy. Anyone want to join in on the fun? It's not to late to get started and it should be a lot of fun. I'm off to find my picture of the day.

Have a great day and don't forget about our GIVEAWAY!

Rose Parade Floats

Oh what fun....we got up early went and saw the Rose Parade floats. They were amazing! Here are just a couple of the 500 pictures I took. Have you ever been to see the parade or the floats? If not it is well worth the time both are amazing. Yesterday was the last day. If you go see the floats go the day of the parade or the next day by the third day the flowers are pretty welted.

Now vacation is over and it's time to get back to work. You will be seeing some much needed changes around here so stay tuned.

Today we went shopping and to the movies. If you haven't taken your kids to see Alvin and the Chipmunks The Squeakquel you should. It is really cute. Jason thought it was better then the first one.
