 Austin, TX ~ Have you prepared?? ~ Freezing temperaturesWe are in the midst of an arctic blast!!  Austin is shivering in the teens with the wind chill factor hovering around 5 degrees.  It's not going to get any better and may snow tomorrow!! As we drive through the neighborhoods we are seeing broken water pipes and water frozen in pools ready for ice skating!  We are surprised at the number of homeowners who have not taken necessary caution to protect their home, pets, plants, pipes and themselves!  There are rolling blackouts so be prepared!

winter: Wordless Wednesday ~ Here Today and Gone Tomorrow - 11/17/10 09:56 AM
When we were in Pittsburgh to see family we got to enjoy the tree lined streets that were so colorful.  The brisk chill in the air made your cheeks rosy.  Halloween is now over and Thanksgiving is around the corner.  Soon the leaves will fall and the first flakes of snow will fill the air.  It will be time to make snowmen and count down the days to when Saint Nick makes his ride.  Here today and gone tomorrow!

winter: Stature ~ Strength ~ Stability - 01/08/10 03:22 AM
 
I grew up surrounded by majestic trees dwarfing my presence.  In the summer they provided shade from the hot sun and in the fall their shadows would play games with me as the sun set. 
In winter they produced the quiet stillness layered with glistening snowflakes for me to admire.  Their stature gave me strength.  Their strength gave me stability and the lesson was re-enforced every season, year after year. 
Thanks big guys!

winter: To Many A Winter Wonderland - 01/07/10 07:24 AM

This view out my brother's home in Pittsburgh is truly a winter wonderland.  We grew up in upstate N.Y. with a similar view and he rejoices in continuing the tradition of shoveling snow and romping in the snow with his family and dog "Rocky".  He has a love affair with skiing!Vesta M. Kelly once said:"Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but look what they can do when they stick together!"
