Heureuse Annee! -Postcard Friendship Friday #340

It is very cold for our part of the country.  We are usually in the mid-thirties and forties.  Today it is 17 outside, with a high of 27!  We are NOT used to this kind of weather here in the Willamette Valley in Oregon.

My Grandfather told of a time it was so cold he drove a team of horses and a buggy across the Willamette River.  That was around 1900 and he was a teenager.  Ah, boys!  Some things never change.  I do love the snow, but this very cold weather isn't a favorite of mine.

However, there's a big storm coming in tomorrow and Sunday.  They say we are in for a silver thaw.  Grandpa used to call ice storms by that name.  I always loved how it sounded.  I am looking forward to the bad weather--and I pray no one gets hurt trying to get around in the ice.

I hope you are having a wonderful New Year so far, dear Friends.  God bless you and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
