All sorts of Where's Waldo jokes come to mind. Have you been acquainted with Waldo? He's the cartoon character in a series of children's books. Each page is usually a crowd scene, and Waldo is hidden somewhere in the picture. Young children look through all the people trying to find him. He's distinctive looking in his red-and-white-striped shirt and hat, and his goggle-like glasses.

Yep, I had thoughts of Where's Walda all day yesterday. Very goofy, and perhaps only funny to me, but I pictured Waldo's hat in a variety of silly places outside in the snow. On the antenna of a car that was becoming snow covered, a fence post, a bush, on our dog's head...you get the idea.
We did get a lot of snow, and it's still coming down. We have about a foot of fresh snow in our yard, and we may have 4 to 8 inches more today and tonight. We have not had the high winds (at least in our neighborhood), so we don't have huge drifts, just a very thick blanket of the white stuff. The schools are closed, and I'm sure the kids are not complaining about that! It is a bit insulting though, to go from very mild temperatures in the near 70°F range, to a forecast high temperature in the teens today.

I am planning to drink cocoa, bake some banana bread, try a recipe for bread that uses a new gluten free flour blend I found, and watch some Downton Abbey, with a few loads of laundry in between.
If you live in an area within Walda's wintry grip, what are your plans today?
