Baby, It's Cold Outside

Tom has been riding his bicycle to work this week. This morning he said he rode all the way to work in a very light snow. Awesome! It's funny because he had just said last night that he needs to put his snow tires on his bicycle this weekend. The puddles are frozen.  It's pitch black outside right now at 10 til 8 in the morning here. Sunrise isn't for a while now. I could see a very light falling snow looking through the beam of light from the driveway lighting. I love it! I hope it turns to pouring snow showers!!

I was in the mood to use my 3 BIRDS ON PARADE Cricut cartridge today. I just love all the Birdies on this cart!!
