Good afternoon, MMC!

Where did the afternoon go? I can't believe how fast the day has flown today. I'm not getting much done, but I did catch up on the Countdown and I was able to sign into Google+, but didn't have time to browse around the site. I clicked on the MMC community, I think it is called, and clicked either join or become a member, but I'm not sure if it went through or not. I'll check another time when I have time.

Back to work, now. Take care, everyone, and have a MERRY day!

Made I missed your original post and I am praying for the situation....Please pray that I don't wind up w/o insurance too if you would...I am scared......

This is really odd, this is the second year in a row where we have/ are not getting any snow at all, or very little of it. All were seeing is a dusting, an inch and then it melts away or a nasty cold to the bone rain.... The temperature has been too warm.

I was watching some video I took back on December 19th, 2009 and both Feburary 16th and the 20th of 2010, when we got hammered with snow, I mean like 4 feet deep with blizzard conditions, now that's what I'm talking about....Now that theres fun, (yes I know I'm snow sick - hah hah, get it snow sick...lol) I crack myself up....

I hope you you get snow !! This is the first Winter in my part of Ohio that has behaved NORMALLY sort of in a while !! xo

It's a variation on ice cream, using snow as the main ingredient. You take clean, fresh snow and add sweetened condensed milk (or milk and sugar) and flavoring to it, usually vanilla. There are various "recipes" online---here's one example. These days, it's probably safer to use shaved ice, although I've heard of putting a big, clean bowl or pot outside when a heavy snowfall is expected.

Thank you for the description !!! xo
