More Snow?

We tried a new recipe, this one was a Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole by Iowa Girl Eats.   It cooked all night in the crock-pot on low. It was pretty tasty and had hash-browns, sausage, eggs, cheeses and onions, see recipe below.   It was like a thick quiche.   I got up at 8am and had a piece then I went back to bed until 10am.  Guess I was tired.

Last week at the office on the entry table someone had left tickets to the Home and Landscape EXPO.  There was a stack with a note that said "free tickets".   I grabbed four of the them with thought that we could go.   So instead of going for our hike we decided we would hike over to the Norris-Penrose Event Center and check out the EXPO.   From our house it is about a mile and half.   We cut through the BCP and the snow was still pretty deep.   We made our way over the creek and up past the stables and then to the Events Center.  Made a tour through the isles and checked out the various vendors.  Anything you needed for the home or yard was being represented.   Pretty much the same thing they had last year.  We grabbed some information from a painting company, stucco and a handy-man service.   Being that it was lunchtime we ordered and split a cheese burger and an order of fries.  Sat and ate and watched the people.  That was almost more fun than the EXPO it's self.  Made our way back home the way we came.

The weatherman is saying that we are going to see 5 to 8 inches of snow tomorrow.  Supposed to start early AM and snow most of the day.
