so glad my torts are still young enough to be indoors in their warm enclosures on a day like today. major winter storm here in the midwest. we had lightning, thunder, and snow all at the same time when it first started. now, just lots of snow and hoping that we miss the ice that they say is supposed to follow. i work across the street from my house, so no problem for me getting back home, but my son works 45 minutes away and his job won't let workers leave until everything is shipped out for the day in the warehouse. crazy! it's pretty outside, but the older i get, the more i don't like winter.

We are getting some of the pretty white stuff too here in Nebraska. Very little traffic out there.

Oh no and I haven't even looked at the weather. :(
I am sooo over winter. I am ready for summer. I need to start wearing skirts soon as my drawers don't fit. :(
My tortoises wont be allowed out much in the early spring because it would be too cold in MI but also I am having part of my grass treated and am afraid it could be tracked into their play area by something like a mole or a bunny.

Ice storms are the worse. :( They take down trees and electric lines so easily. :(

Middle of nowhere
Snow is building up on the streets here fast, too. I went out this morning before the storm started to grab some last minute supplies, including hand warmers and a battery powered airpump just in case we lose power.

worst part of this winter storm so far has been that i had 2 sons out in it for hours, stranded in opposite directions, but they are finally both safe and sound. was frustrating especially for my husband to not be able to get out and "rescue" them.

I hope you guys don't lose power. One of the prettiest things I ever saw was how the forest looked after an ice storm as a child. To kids it's neat looking and no school.
