Happy Friday to you!  Well this photo is from the Rockies and was taken a few months ago, but from what I could see this morning I imagine it looks about the same.  The snow began to fall last evening, soft and wet, but never the less we got about an inch.  It was forecast for today as well and some places-like Vail- had the interstate closed.  I was a bit concerned last night because I have a class at the gym at 8:00 a.m. and hubby had an appt. at 9:00.  My car doesn't have all wheel drive but his does-so if the roads were very bad this morning, what was I to do?  Well, no worries-the streets were clear so I made the drive without any issues at all.  When it comes to snow, I am a whimp and like( rather love) having an all wheel drive vehicle.  Let me tell you it's cold outside; when I got home I had to put the garbage cans out and I couldn't wait to get into a nice warm home. I'm supposed to walk in a bit, but I don't think that is going to happen. 
Our weekend is pretty low key, other than having some friends over for dinner tomorrow night. I've got a new potato recipe to bake and a cheesecake to make, plus a run to Whole Foods.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and that you can get outside, regardless of what your weather is.  Don't forget to pray for those impacted by the tornadoes, another one hit this morning in Alabama.
Hugs, Noreen


  1. Good morning! I have a feeling I'd be a big wimp too when it came to snow...enjoy your week-end! HUGS

  2. Hi there Noreen,
    Yes, we heard about the Tornadoes here too - what a tragedy. It looks like a disaster area. Those poor people!
    Your snow must be lovely. I've never seen snow like that in real life. Really beautiful.
    sending lotsaluv to you all. Enjoy your weekend with your friends.

  3. I've been thinking and praying for the tornado victims! I am not a snow bird, and think of those who get so much. We have had a very warm winter, it was 80 degrees yesterday, a record for sure. Enjoy your company tomorrow night and your weekend.

  4. Noreen
    I'm watching the disaster from the tornados. I'll be praying, for sure.
    Sounds like a good weekend with friends.Never let a little snow
    keep a good woman down!

  5. Hope the missing post means that Blogger is behaving now?

    No snow and no tornadoes here ... we're just a couple of hours north of Harrisburg. My heart breaks for the devastation these tornadoes wreak.

  6. Hi Nana Nor..
    first.. thanks for stopping by and leaving me such a sweet note!!
    yes..Moving back to Florida..after almost 6 years to the day I arrived here in Denver.
    Hubby has to wear oxygen 24/7 a backpack while working ..and tethered to a concentrator when at home.due to a paralytic (non-functioning) diaphram..
    he almost died in 2008.He spent a bit over 3 months in ICU before being well enough to return to work...
    (I lost my job the same day he was admitted to the hospital)..anyway..with the Lord's blessing,we discovered he was able to function normally at sea level WITHOUT supplemental oxygen!!! so we began searching for Physician jobs..he was selected for a Physician position for the VA clinic in hometown..where we first met eons ago! that's the reason we are leaving he may have a chance to lead a normal life doing what he loves..and that is caring for his patients.

  7. What a gorgeous photo. I love to see the Rockies in your area. Glad the roads were good for you this a.m...............Denise

  8. I wimped out and stayed home today. We are in the midst of a big storm with about 6" on the ground so far. It is awful about the tornados down South and my heart (and prayers) go out to those in it's path. xo Diana

  9. Good Morning Sweet Lady~
    I don't like driving in snow either! The skidding scares me.

    My husband is mid way through 2 weeks of 12 hours shifts...missing him, but so glad he has a job.

    Have a wonderful weekend. ((HUGS))

  10. Good morning Noreen, Brrrr it sounds cold over there in Colorado. It's been a somewhat warmer nearly snowless winter for us here in Kansas and tornado season seems early this year...but we were fortunate that we had no damage here on the farm. My heart and prayers go out to all those who have lost loved ones and homes and to all those who will be affected today. You just never know what the weather will do know matter where you live. Enjoy your weekend and stay safe.

  11. We are always so thankful when the tornados miss us. I see the devasted faces of people overwhelmed and can't even imagine. Happy weekend to you!

  12. Hi Noreen!! Seeing the news is really heartbreaking and while we're thankful that our friends and family in Kentucky (not far from where the tornadoes were) are safe, I have said prayers for those who have lost everything to find comfort and peace.

  13. Boy that was a great photo. It looks like there are two places that are avelanche triggers too.

    We have had beautiful snow storms here in Utah this week too but it is all subdued as we watch the tornadoes hitting the east.

    like you, we are praying for their safety.
