See the sign on the railing of this Ohio Home??? Pray for those who are being flooding in Ohio and Indiana ~My Heart Goes out to those Southern States that saw the terrible Twisters and Tornados yesterday, Please pray for them too!!!~
~I will happily take our 13 INCHES of snow we had as of 10am Wed. Feb 6th, 2008. We have broke an IOWA RECORD~
~Notice the BIRD BATH peeking out of our snowfall??? Picture taken in our front yard out of the living room picture window. Nick, Alex and Maddi are pictured above!!!~

THANK YOU LORD, FOR OUR RECORD SNOW FALL!!! Please help those who have suffered from the extreme weather here in the USA in the past few days~AMEN~

Amy, I am so sorry about all the devastation in the Southern states. I will keep them in my prayers..How awful!!
I feel bad complaining about all the rain/flooding and water in my basement. These people have no homes at all to complain about!
Oh my gosh Amy look at all the snow!! WOW!! Stay warm.. hope you do not loose your power.
What difference it makes just living a few states away.. You have so much snow we have so much rain..
Hugs & love ~Mary~

Hi Amy,
I will no longer complain about all the snow we have and the icy roads! {we are supposed to get 12 more inches tonight}

I pray for all those in the south whom are being affected but the horrible weather!
My heart goes out to them!

God Bless,

Oh Amy, I too would much rather have snow. We are still getting rain here in Ohio and our basement was wet but that is nothing compared to the south. My sister-in-law texted me last night and asked me to pray for them. They were in the closet as tornadoes were all around them. One took out the university in Jackson, Tennessee. I will take snow anyday over flooding and tornadoes.

Hi Amy I have been watching on the nightly news all of the terrible weather conditions over in USA. Such awful things happening to so many people.
Hope all is well with you and your family.

Hi Amy,

Your pictures tell an harrowing tale. Especially that first photo, with the sign on the railing. My thoughts are with all those being affected by this unbelievable weather.

On a happier note, please stop by my blog...I'm having a Pampered Package Giveaway.

Happy Birthday Amy!!! You are just a young thing, I turned 50 last May and I can finally say it without stuttering.....I hope you and your family will enjoy celebrating even amongst the snow, which by the way we are now getting.

Hi Amy,

I'm with you, praying for our southern states affected by the horrible storms and tornados.

We are in Ohio, and our creek has overflowed, but we can still get in and out of our driveway, thankfully! I'd rather have that pretty snow you're showing!
As for your sweet comment on my kitchen, you are welcome to come have tea with me anytime! What a pleasure that would be! :)

Happy Birthday Dear Amy
Happy Birthday to you
Just read on Mary's blog that it's your birthday. Hope you had a wonderful day.
Don't know where the live feed gets its info from but it always says i am from Numurkah and its 178miles from me.
Take care Alison

Mary said...

I'm not really sure if it is your Birthday today Amy - I have it marked for Feb. 20! Anyway, if it is, I'm sending huge Birthday wishes and hoping this year will be a wonderful, healthy, special, joyous and fantastic 365 days! If it's not today I'll wish it all over again for you when it does arrive!!

Throw some snowballs in this direction - 79 degrees today and we so desperately need rain! I'm sad for the folks who are getting too much - the country seems in such a strange weather pattern this Winter. Stay safe - with love.

Hi Amy,
I love your new do I remember so well when mom's start growing back out.
Dave had his doctors appointment too. I posted about it on my blog.
It wasn't the news we had hoped for but at least it isn't cancer.

Diane Fay (littlealma) said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!! I am coming out of lurking just to give you a big verbal hug!!!

Don't you just love the snow? I am living in Michigan, but miss the much bigger snowstorms we used to have when I was growing up in Wisconsin!

Wishing you well - and hoping you are continuing to heal!

Love - Diane (Vruwink) Carlson

Mary said...

Happy Birthday! I am visiting via Mary's blog. I do hope you had a wonderful day.

Yes, thank God for the snow. The schools were closed here in Ontario today and probably will be tomorrow. It's been icing and snowing ALL day, but we are truly blessed. I am praying for those who were hit with the tornadoes and also for the ones whose homes are flooded. Thank you for posting this.


Twinkle Pink said...

Hello Amy, we heard about all that devastation, the sheer power of the weather that can just take your whole life away just like that.

On a lighter note that snow looks great - we never see snow here.

Oh and how fantastic for you that your hair is coming back and looks so great. It will get long again :0)

best wishes Ginny (in England)

The Urban Chic said...

Happy Birthday Sweet Amy.
That horrible weather system went north of us, but we were still under a watch. So much devastation---at least we can run from Hurricanes. I too would much rather be snowed in than wake up to my house being in splinters. Praying for all those effected by all these freak storms. May God comfort you. Love and Hugs, Pat

Amy Wagner said...

Happy Birthday Amy!!!!!!!!!!!

Nora Lee said...

Beautiful snow! I wish we would get a really good snow here this year in NC.

Happy Birthday!!!


Anna T said...

I feel so sad fo the people that have lost loved ones and their homes.
We seem to take so much for granted.Prayers to the families.

Counting Your Blessings said...

Yep - we got about the same amount of snow here too. I was so grateful, like you, that it was only snow. Those poor families that have been devestated by tornados! Praying with you for them... Polly (p.s. I emailed you back the other day but my email is a bit quirky so let me know if you didn't get it)

Jillian said...

Amy, I just saw that it was your birthday on Wednesday. Happy Belated!!!!! Hope you enjoyed your day.


Stephanie said...

Big Bday Wishes & Hugs,
Angelic Accents

Yolanda said...

I am praying for them both. There is a powerful video of the storms Tues on my site.

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Isn't it terrible to know that our fellow Americans are having to go through such devastation? So sad!

AMY!!! These pictures look nothing like the ones I saw earlier this year of your front yard. Where is the corn field? Wowzers! It looks cold there!!!!!!
Brrrrrr...a shiver just crept down my back looking at these pics! Hate to tell you that it was sunny and 63 today at our cottage. Ahhhh..I am starting to thaw....
