Thankful Thursday! December 22, 2022

The weather for the next few days is going
to be cold and icy! I am thankful for many things:
1. Our weather folks have given us fair warning
and good advice on what to do!
2. My smart husband planning ahead for bad weather by
 setting up a generator when we first moved here four years ago!
 Prior planning prevents piss poor performance!
That's what he always says !
3. And we are so thankful for all our neighbors who 
help each other all the time- not just in bad weather!
Thanks Brian for Thankful Thursday and a big
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 
to you, your family and friends! 


  1. Looks like you're ready for whatever happens. Planning ahead is a very good thing. We do the same thing.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Love and hugs all around and my you and yours have a very Merry Christmas. ♥

  2. Merry Christmas to you, Kathe. Our snow from that "once a generation" storm has started - tomorrow is going to be nasty. Nevertheless, that is one beautiful ice crystal capture. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    Hugs Cecilia

  5. It's supposed to be so darn cold here too, brrrrr humbug! Y'all keep warm. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  6. I have been begging my hubby to get our generator fixed. We are expecting bad weather so I am nervous. XO

  7. I hope you stay safe and warm. A blessed and beautiful Merry Christmas to you!

  8. Pretty frosty photo! Reminds us of our old home. We kitties have a double coat of fur for cold weather but we still like to snuggle where it's warm.
