and the grand total stands at 16 inches. It is still gusting like crazy outside and we are predicted 1 – 2 inches more snow before the storm winds down. Then the bitter below zero temps move in. Last night was really something. We had a lot of thunder snow. Inside it sounded just like a summer thunderstorm.
I took a picture through the top of my kitchen window a few minutes ago. I couldn’t get my front door open because of the snow.
Looking out my back door.

The cookies yesterday were delicious and being here alone and in an anxious state I managed to scarf down quite a few. I love this recipe. It is on both of my recipe sites.

A recipe from cooks.com
1 1/4 c. butter, softened
1 1/4 c. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
3 c. quick or old fashioned uncooked oatmeal
1 c. dried cherries
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. In a bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; add to creamed butter mixture, mixing well. Stir in oatmeal and dried cherries.
Drop by a rounded tablespoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-11 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet, then remove. Makes 5 1/2-6 dozen cookies.
When I make these cookies I only get around 3 dozen as I make huge cookies.
Time for me to see about some breakfast. I will catch you all later.
