Snow!



Our first snow to speak of today. Mayor Bloomberg said to expect 6 inches and that he had the plows out already. Good for him! When I went out it was somewhat icy and my anti-lock brakes were working full time.

I think we got only about 3 inches at the end of the fall. It's supposed to rain tonight which would make me happy so I wouldn't have to shovel.

Oh, I wish. I'm in a north left state and more than 3 1/2 feet fell here in less than 30 hours. I can hardly lift the shovel high enough to reach the top layer...and it's bitterly cold. Sob.

Merry Christmas!!

It really looks beautiful, but I'm not envious. I hate the clean up after being out in it!

I think we got about 6 or 7 inches here in CT.

Rain would be good, that would mean it wouldn't be so cold.

Wow, but you know, better you than me!

It does look beautiful, but I wouldn't want to shovel snow either. Hope you get the rain as predicted.
Hugs and blessings,

I am pleased to report that we got zero inches of snow here in south Georgia! hahaha. However, my SisterDears were not so lucky. They has 6 inches after only a few hours and it was still coming down. I miss New England, but I never miss the snow! Or scraping the windshield or shoveling, or...

Yes, I really did take those photos with a Point and Shoot!

Dear teach Mary,
The snow looks so clean and delicate,
if one only had to relate to it on pictures or like children..
I know from before this change in climate, what shoveling snow and walking on slippery pavements are like for adults with porcelain bones, like myself.
No romance at all.
Still I'm dreaming of a White Christmas, just for that single day.

We're in the middle of what Environment Canada calls "Snowmageddon." What's that, you ask? Three snowstorms in five days, the last one to arrive on Christmas Eve day. Will we have a White Christmas? LOL

I'll be happy if I can get out and go to work on Monday. As long as it isn't icy, the roads should be clear.
