We broke the record…

Peoria’s new snowfall record: 52.5 inches.  Every little bit counts.  The 1.7 inches of snow that fell Friday night enabled Peoria to break the record for its snowiest winter in history.  The record is 52.5 inches at least for now.  We still have more winter to go so the total may go higher.  I am not discouraged though because as I am typing this it is only 21 days, 8 hours, 13 minutes and 22 seconds until Spring.  Eye rolling smile

Nothing new to report here.  No snow last night and that is a break.  It is 34 degrees right now and climbing.  I am gearing up for Spring big time.

I have a pot of ham and beans on the stove.  Cornbread to follow.  Come on over.

  1. Hi Beth,

    Love your spring countdown, right to the last second. It is 5.30 p.m. here and still daylight, this is very uplifting and encouraging, days are becoming longer and nights shorter. Now, you just need to get rid of that white stuff, but please don't send it here. lol. Hugs - Nita.

  3. I love snow... BUT in moderation. The snow can be a lot of fun (I do a lot of winter activities where snow is required) when you don't *have* to rush around or be anywhere quickly. But I too, am now ready for Spring. Here's hoping that it comes soon for you.
    Enjoy your meal. Yum!

  4. Great countdown Beth, and is there a special cup? for breaking the record. If not there's no point in trying!! ;-) ... I think you'll have polished off everything eatable by now, so I won't come on over.I'll just cry into my baked beans on toast! Sobs!!! Take care my friend, and have a great snow free week...xPenx

  5. We got another two inches overnight but it's disappearing as we speak. Unless we get clobbered again a couple of times we will not break a record this year but never say never. I think the record around here is something like 104 inches. Despite the rain and the warming weather there are still piles of snow everywhere.
    I wish I had know about the ham and beans before I came home from work and had pancakes. One of my weaknesses. That and kryptonite.

    Got black beans cooking, maybe cornbread.
