Dirty, Just Jot January

Linda G Hill with the final guest prompt by Jim has challenged us with “dirty”. Right now I am more consumed with snow and cold than dirt but I have heard cold being called “stinking cold”. Stinking usually refers to something really smelly dirty. So I am going with the cold being dirty. At least it is leaving a mess at my front door.

I just came in from getting the mail and these new pictures and the current temp is 3 degrees and steadily falling with the onslaught of this polar vortex. Temps to drop to an estimated -22 with a wind chill of -51. For all of you also in this dirty stinking cold, stay inside as much as possible. I am praying we don’t get further damage from this cold air mass. Sunday we will be basking in  heat at 44 degrees. That’s 60 degrees warmer so it will feel great.

I am adding in a few pictures of the snow. While I know it is silly to post snow pictures but being from south Georgia, this is not a normal scene for me. So chuckle with me and stay warm.

Knee high

While the angle is not good, the snow is knee high and drifted higher in some areas.

The mound in  the center of the yard is the Christmas decorations and a small live Christmas tree. The decorations may have to wait until spring to get remove.

I hope these evergreens are resilient enough to straighten back up with spring.

Even though we are stinking dirty cold, we can always be crystal clean kind. Sometimes when things are under stress, kindness is more important, more needed and much loved on the receiving end.  So remember to be kind.

    1. I took them this afternoon. I no longer live in Georgia which is why I am not use to this mess. Living in Iowa currently. Thank for stopping by. Stay warm where ever you are.

  1. Brrrrrrr, that is too much stinking snow for me!! However, you just reminded me I need to quit whining about being cold at 45 degrees as that is a heat wave in your world! I can’t deny snow is very beautiful, although only because it isn’t here!

  2. Fantastic way of relating the word “dirty” to “stinking cold.” Snow is beautiful when it falls, but the melted slush is pretty gross. Beautiful photos of snow and praying that everyone stays well and safe with this extremely cold temperature!!
    Sending warm hugs…
