2 Things...and it's cold!

Just wanted to share with you what 01-11-11 looked like outside at our house.
I'm guessing we've had between 4-6 inches.  It's just so very cold
with temps down in the single digits at night.  The snow will be
around for a while as cold as it is.

Because of the snow and bitter cold, I'm using that as an excuse to be lazy and spend
time again today on the computer.  I found this Meme called 2 Things over at
Susan's Penless Writer and thought it would be fun to do.
If you decide to participate, let me know so I can read yours!

  1. Great! Couldn't say it any better. My, it is cold right across the country. I noticed that the national news showed that every state in the country had snow except for Florida. Then they announced that 49 out of 50 states had snow. Does that mean that it snowed in Hawaii? Ha!

  2. Hi Cheryl!

    Are you sure you don't live in Idaho?! I can't believe all the snow you have! Please stay inside and just cozy up with a good book and a warm quilt.

    I love your meme! We have so much in common, it's almost scary! I could just copy and paste yours to mine.

    Stay warm!


  3. Our 1-11-11 looked much like yours--not quite as much though. Enjoyed your 2 things post :)

  4. Oops...just found this: Yes, according to the Weather Service: “This includes Hawaii where about seven inches of snow is atop Mauna Kea.”

  5. Hi Cheryl, We have about the same amount of snow --and ours just keeps coming... George has cleaned the driveway 3 times and there's more snow on it tonight.... Don't know when it will end.... It's pretty though--but I'm now ready for a little sunshine... ha

    Love reading your "two's"... We watch Fox News 24/7. We are Walmart people also. And my wish for 2011 is GOOD HEALTH.

  6. Love the 2's!! We have some of that but not near as much.. I wish we had some decent amount of snow to go with this cold!lol

  7. Many of my 2 things would be the same as yours. I may have to steal this in the days to come when I am out of ideas!

  8. two stores? The gas station and the Dunkin' donuts shop next to my work (coffee, though, no donuts).

    Our temps are frigid for the next few must have sent the weather on to the east coast! We often get your leftovers!!! hehehe

  9. Cheryl I enjoyed this post. Learned some things about you and yep, most of my answers would be the same as yours!

  10. Hi Cheryl, Great post, enjoyed leaning these things about you. Walmart and J C Penny gets a lot of our
    Thank you for coming by and for taking the time to leave me a sweet comment.
    To answer your question about helpful tips for vertigo. I wish I had something new, but taking Dramamine and going to bed is the best. However when I had this last bout, I took an herb mixture, known as Wellness, I think it really helped me. I am now taking it about twice a week to help build my immunity.

  11. Hope you are keeping warm,snow looks pretty,but I do not like living with it.Our snow has gone now thank goodness,we just have rain and mist/fog now.
    An interesting list for us to read and I was intrigued by the Irish connection in your family,have you researched your family on this side of the pond.??
    Take care ,Carolyn.

  12. Oh wow - your snow picture is great. We got 9 inches last week. The first time in over 20 years we have gotten that much snow.

  13. Brr. . . it does look cold at your house. Perfect day to stay inside and play the 2 game. I enjoyed reading your answers.

  14. Vee, I wouldn't have thought about the snow in Hawaii either!

    Sue, I'll have to check out the Wellness herbal mixture. I'm willing to try anything that might help. Thanks for the info.

    Carolyn, my aunt (she was my mother's sister)is a genealogist and has looked into my Irish side which is my father's. She said that there just isn't any information on the people other than what we know once they arrived in this country. And that isn't very much. I really regret that we can't find out much. Glad your snow is gone!
