1st day of winter....


Today is the 1st day of winter....
also called
Winter Solstice.

This marks the shortest day and 
the longest night of the year.

I must say this is my
favorite season....
you know, with the snow and all....

When you have difficulties in life....
like losing all of your snow....
just

and things can start going your way....

We got it 10 fold!
Yippy Skippy!
Did I mention I love snow?

Now this is what I call
WINTER!

It wasn't just snow it was a BLIZZARD!
And it wasn't just "a blizzard"....
they named it....Draco!
10 inches of snow....
50 mile an hour winds....
Santa certainly gives BIG gifts!

We had quite the day, however,
we didn't have any electricity....
that meant Beth didn't get her 
coffee right away....
(not good!)
we got stuck trying to leave our driveway....
I mean we REALLY got stuck....
AND 
we couldn't get down our hill because
a tree fell across the road!
Mike and I got it moved....
now it is all cleared!

 *********************
Football schedule....

Sunday
Vikings vs Texans
Noon

Green Bay vs Titans
Noon

Here we go again!
Both at the same time!

I stopped by and talked to Santa.
I explained to him some of the
reasons you may be on his
naughty list and he understood
and said he would adjust the list
immediately....


No worries....all is good!

Enjoy your weekend, 
my friends!

Later -- Remington --
 VERY HAPPY!
-- out!

One more thing....
Saturday is my girlfriend,
Miss Sasha's birthday....
(click on her name to go to her blog)
please stop by and wish her 
a Happy Birthday!
Thanks!

Hi Sweety, I am so happy you got snow!! I am giddy just thinking of you out there. We got snow too so that will make the sleigh ride even more romantic. I hope we can snuggle up close. Will you keep me warm? Of course you will. I can't wait to see you and show you off to my neighbor pals. I have many deer friends so I hope Miss Daisy and her family can come and meet Miss Darlene and her family. I hope Beth gets her coffee. See you soon.

Loveys and hugs your Sasha

JC said...

Snow and Santa .. you had a fun time !!!

We had a snow storm like your last year. It's fun at first but not when it freezes and stays for a week. Hope yours is just snow.

Enjoy the Holidays,

JC and The Purr and Fur Gang

Madi and Mom said...

Oh Rem I'm so sorry...I ordered you snow but I had nothing to do with the power (poor Beth no coffee) nor did I say anything to anyone about knocking a tree over your drive. Dang Buddy and and Mike had a mess but you were Pros cleaning it up.
Hugs and I'll see you at Sasha's bash.
Madi your BFFF

Hi Rem, We're supposed to get snow tonight, but I don't think we are getting as much as you got. I can't wait for Sasha's party tomorrow. It will be my first Blogville party.

Thanks for talking to Santa and smoothing things over! Blueberry really needed that extra help since she's been less than perfect these last few weeks! Linus has definitely upset the applecart!

Love the snowy pics! Beautiful!

Happy Birthday to your gal Miss Sasha too!

Ginny said...

What beautiful snow images! Wow, I cannot believe you guys tried driving in it, scary!!! Did Mike have to get to work? I knew about the storm but not the name, why is it Draco?

Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Wow Remi, you certainly got lots of snow! We know Miss Khyra wants to come right over and join you in some snow football!

Ann said...

Well getting a blizzard was quite a gift for you but not so good that Beth didn't get her coffee right away.

Oh boy did you ever get snow!! We have the high winds and just a bit of snow, but we'll take what we can get! I used to love it years ago when we got snowed in. Your going to have to start having two tv's going on Sundays if this keeps up with your teams Remington. Guess What? Santa came to see Fred and Gloria the other day! :) Happy Birthday to your girl!

Mitch and Molly said...

Oh boy are you ever lucky, Remington! All we got was high winds and RAIN! ICK!
Enjoy all of your beautiful snow!

Love ya lots,

Hello Remington. You got a lot of snow! We just got a little in northern Indiana. We are stopping by to say, "thank you" for the lovely Christmas card you sent us. So glad that you have a big fur coat and plenty of snow to use it in. Happy Holidays!

Your place looks like a postcard with all that snow!

Raelyn said...

Remington....
Winter Solstice is the longest night of the year.... According to professionals. But, I disagree. The longest night--the longest day--of the year is Christmas Eve!! Hurry up, Santa!! Ho, ho, ho.... ;-}
Wow!! Welcome to Earth, Draco!! ;op
Love, Raelyn.... And Rose, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE "Mystery Dog"!!
