Unnecessary freezing of water...

It's not officially "snow"... until Christmas.  Certainly NOT on November 13th after the sun set.  The weather, according to Moi.

"Unnecessary Freezing of Water"

1.  Yes, this happened.  Yes, it's November.

2.  No, I am not happy.  

3.  Thing #3 is not happy either.

4.  The 17-year-old, first time winter driver, apparently knows more about "unnecessary freezing of water" and the effects on one's car in in the morning...than Moi.  As explained by her total disregard of my suggestions.

5.  Thing #3 left for school this morning facing an "unexcused late" upon her arrival.  Truth?  Yes, this makes me happy.

Here's where I "link up" today.

Next Tuesday's Song-ography title suggestion is..."Pocketful of Sunshine" by Natasha Bedingfield.  
Come back and link up!


  1. Good Morning Kathy, we got a bit of the white stuff over night too. It's so pretty on all the trees. It didn't stick on the roads and driveways. That's the way I like it. We'll just pray for angels and traveling mercies for Thing #3 while she is on the road.

  2. #1 Yes things happen, we are not in control.
    #2 Happy is a better emotion.
    #3 What?
    #4 It takes a 17 year old a looooooooong time to learn the things they think they know!
    #5 OK now I understand thing #3, ah the learning lessons of life.

  3. Not so cold here but cold enough to want to stay indoors. So, I guess that is what I will do. Hope thing #3 gets where she is going safe and sound.

  4. I agree...snow is not appropriate for this time of year-it's too soon!!! Of course, I live in the sunshine state, so what do I know?
    Don't you love it when your kids 'know more' than you do, but they are able to 'prove themselves' wrong on occasion??? *YES*
    Have a great weekend-stay warm!

  5. Yep - same thing here this morning, though the temp is above freezing so it didn't stick around long. I'm not ready for it either.

  6. They think we know NOTHING! :-) Love your photo! Sorry it's icy water. :-(

  7. I really didn't believe we were going to get any until I actually saw it myself!

  8. i am sure you have seen what they are calling it on twitter and the news .. . #snowvember ... funny how that works out. have a great weekend!! ( :

  9. cool photo!! yes, much too early for that though...scary having kids driving in this kind of weather. my oldest is 20 and i still freak out...and i have a 17 year old who will be trying out driving for the first time this winter's great when they get a lesson though that mom really does know best...have a great weekend, keep warm and thanks for linking!

  10. No snow or freezing rain for us .... we dodged it! :-) and that's fine with me!

  11. Oh how I can relate. Winter....I'm just not that into it.

  12. Smiling, smiling, smiling. Thank goodness for fearless, self righteous teenagers. May all their lessons be learned gently.

  13. Here we had heat wave conditions on Friday...and bushfires...and it is not summer yet.
    I like your "bleak" image:)

  14. Hee hee. November 13th is a bit too soon.

  15. I am soooo not ready for old man winter. And that frigid 22 degrees this morning...what's up with that??? Poor dog didn't even want to go out! Humph...the wood stove is burning hot and the soup recipes are coming out. Happy Day to you, Kath. Aloha!

  16. Not only do I love the picture, but your comments just make me chuckle. Having lived in Germany coming up on 5 winters WITHOUT a garage, I can feel her pain of cleaning off the know and hacking away at ice. And please note, the earth friendly German's do not believe in idling your car, not even to melt the snow and ice off.
