Snowmageddon

I'm surprised I still have contact with the outside world tonight. It was touch and go. Last night I walked onto the deck to check the weather and a stiff wind out of the north rustled the pines. That's when the snow began falling.

After about the fourth flake, I realized I probably should have bought a few dozen more loaves of bread and gallons of milk.

It was a sleepless night, tossing and turning and stepping to the window every few minutes to see if I could still see outside.

This morning, I bundled up in my longhandles, sweat suit, toboggan, and gloves before heading outside. It only took a moment to realized the full extent of the weather emergency. I tried to decide whether or not to call EMS or the Governor's hotline to report the situation in Empire.

In the end, after a survey of the property, I realized that there was a good chance we would survive.

Thank goodness I was able to snap a picture to document the snow storm for historical purposes.

  1. Oh the humanity!

    I think there were narrow bands of heavy weather? Better to be prepared than surprised.

    BTW, you got me...very funny.

  3. I always keep the pantry well stocked, but for the most part the weather only keeps in for a day or two at the most. I realize snow is a rarity there for you. Glad you got a picture to show it happened anyway!

  4. You had me going for a while there! Hopefully, the beach will be vastly more warm and welcoming.

  5. Yes, it's a good thing you took a picture for hysterical purposes, lol... I was so hoping you had a good snowfall. It snowed overnight again here, sigh... We already have too much... We don't want any more, really, really, we don't want anymore. I'm waiting for Spring... At least you still have your good humour intact.
    Hugs,

  8. Well, I hope you didn't try to drive in it. I have been informed that Southerners don't know how to drive in snow. Of course, I noticed on the news there was a nearly 30-car pile up in Connecticut because of the snow. I reckon everybody is south of somewhere.

  9. A good sneeze should take care of that for you! Ha! Glad it wasn't too bad and you're safe, sound and fully stocked up on bread and milk!
