Brrrr...It's cold outside

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

 

Well folks like it or not it's that time again for snow, snow and more snow. Now many usually take this time to start their hibernation with hot cocoa and a good book. But what happens when you're kids are home for break and they've played with every toy in the house? Well no need to go out and buy more gifts before Christmas because we're here to help!

Here are a few wintertime ideas provided by Parents.com

Make colored ice cubes and hide them around the yard, for a scavenger hunt.

  • When it's cold out (below 32 degrees) blow bubbles and watch them freeze.
  • In a spray bottle add food coloring to water and let your kids paint the snow.
For the birds, hollow out an orange and will it with seeds.

Rain, Rain, Go Away

When It Rains . . . It Pours

We are very thankful that we did not get hit as bad as most residents in Colorado. However I thought I would share a few photos from our experience through the 100 year flood!

This is the creek in front of our warehouse. And yes you did read that correctly, our creek. Before the rain this was barely a trickle of a stream; afterward it became a raging river! Currently it has calmed back down to a creek state again, but at the time it was crazy to come to work to this!

Here is the parking lot we share with other businesses. If you can't tell there is so much water that a whirlpool has formed above a drain. Basically it's a larger version of what happens when you drain your bathtub. 
Again we are supremely thankful this was the worst of it for us. However, there were those who were hit hard by the storm. So please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
