An Unbelievably Snowy Morning!

Whiteout conditions!  😀

Our rain turned to snow early this morning.  It was coming down on my way to work and didn’t stop for the next 4 hours!   We just don’t see snow like this a lot, so it was exciting!  😀

My boss tried to make it to the post office and had to turn around.  She was so “spooked” after sliding around on our roads, she decided to  close the office and go home while she could.  It was only 9:30.

I did a little sliding myself on the way home and was glad when I finally pulled into the drive.

A friend of mine drives a school bus and they finally dismissed schools around 11:30.  Her students took some of these pics on the way home.

This pic shows a cross which is lit at night.    It sits high on a hillside and shines as a welcoming beacon at night.  Returning from a trip as a child, I would see this cross and know that home was near.

Now our roads are almost clear!  My Handyman and my oldest have gone sledding with instructions to stop by the store on the way home to pick up the ingredients for more snow cream.

This snowy weather called for something to warm a tired and chilled body…Homemade Venison Soup with Veggies and Buttermilk Cornbread!

Hope you’re having a wonderful day no matter what kind of weather you have!

Snow Cream

I’ve made it different ways over the years, but

this is some of the best

Snow Cream I’ve ever made.

Kinda tastes like Homemade Ice Cream, which I love.

Snow Cream

1 can evaporated or Pet Milk

1 can condensed Milk

1 Tbsp vanilla flavoring

3/4 cups sugar

Stir all this together real well and then start adding snow until the mixture gets thicker.  My daughter went out twice for snow until we got it the way we wanted it.  I just told her to make sure it was CLEAN snow.  (lol) It was.

***Sugar Free Version – THM (S)***

Whisk together 3/4 cup heavy cream*,  dash of vanilla,  sprinkle of sea salt, and your favorite no cal sweetener to taste.  Make it fairly sweet since it will taste less sweet as you add the snow.

Add in 4 cups of fresh snow.  Stir well until soft serve consistency.  May need to add more or less snow.

*( I used a mixture of almond milk and heavy cream to make 3/4 cup)
