Ok. We’re Done Now. Right?

Be careful what you wish for…

The promised storm arrived about 7 am yesterday, and didn’t let up until after 3pm. At some points, it was coming down at a rate of two inches per hour, and blowing hard.

That makes for frustrating plowing and shoveling….

Hubby perservered, and got our road plowed-out. The town doesn’t come down here, so without him and his trusty green steed, we’d be stuck.

Looks like we got between 10 and 12 inches. Hard to tell with all the drifting.

So, I’m done with snow now, Winter. You can stop.

Please?

Pretty Please?

  1. Sing it, Sister!

    Christmas is past. Our area’s kids have had a snow day. So, any white stuff now is both too late and redundant. Let it go wherever it needs to go to improve on its timing and let us get on with our lives. Thank you very much.

  2. Weren’t you just wishing for snow a week or two ago? I guess you got what you wished for!

    We didn’t get hit so badly here just outside of Boston, but it did snow for a good portion of the day. I definitely wasn’t out and about covering towns for my blog, that’s for sure! The upstairs neighbor and I shoveled the driveway about halfway through, and it looks like the neighbor behind us, who shares our driveway, went out for a second round after all was said and done. We don’t have nearly as much land, though β€” I don’t know how your husband does it!

    • Proviedence didn’t get much, either – we made it out for dinner Saturday night.
      Hubby bought the plow blade for the tractor a couple years ago, after we spent a whole weekend housebound. Expensive, but well worth it. I do the shoveling while he plows the road.
      Of course, having a reservation at our favorite restaurant is good incentive, too…

      • Not odd at all! Here’s odd: we’re in our 2nd winter here in SW Florida and we get all giddy when the temperature dips below 60……that’s our new definition of “chili weather!”

        • I spent a year in Orlando…Funniest thing I saw was in winter, when it was 48F and raining, and all these transplanted guys from Up North would be standing around outside the grocery store in shorts and t-shirts, shivering, saying, “You think this is cold? You ain’t SEEN cold!”
          Dude, if the weather was like this “back home”, you’d be in jeans and a sweatshirt. Honest. πŸ™‚

  3. I saw lots of white over New England yesterday but it is very hard to tell exactly where it is falling and how much. Will Angel get to play a bit in the snow? Sounds like a good day for snow ice cream!! Stay warm!!

  4. I wish I was there. It is hot here and no let up from the heat in the next week. I love cold weather. Of course, I’ve never lived where it snows. It looks beautiful. Thank you for the photos.

  5. What a lot of weeeeeeird weather! You poor pounded nor’easterners, my family getting buried in snow in *Seattle*, floods in Oregon. What’s the deal, Mother Nature? Having a wee tantrum, are we???

    Be safe, stay warm, and be sure to keep the cups full of hot toddies and hot chocolate. xoxo!

  6. But you love the snow!! you said! But I can see that at two inches AN HOUR, well i quite agree.. you have had enough.. i guess it really was blowing your way.. hope you are dig out, snow man time now!! c

  7. … This is snow… I really don’t know anything about snow… It just comes and goes in my city. You really live hard winter days… But spring will be soon… Thank you, with my love, nia
