Wow you got hit with white stuff! Stay warm and safe friends, enjoy your hot chocolate, playing your dulcimers around a nice fire.
Thinking of you!
Well it was a pretty big snowfall for us here. There were no vehicles allowed on the roads, state of emergency, and there was actually no mail delivered yesterday...which says a lot!
Happily it's now sunny and everyone is plowing and shoveling like mad. A few minutes ago our hired plow person finally arrived with his massive truck and plowed our driveway to the road...which means we are no longer technically snowbound.
We've cleared our paths and porch and cleared the cars, and a path to the bird feeder. The little birds are feasting.
No more snow in the forecast but it never got above 20F so it's pretty cold when the wind picks up.
I'm thrilled we never lost power! Just cooked a bacon and egg lunch for Brian and myself, and glad to not clear any snow now for a good while. Blizzard = checked off the list!
lots of snow = lots of hot chocolate
It seems insignificant, but perhaps the main thing I regret about raising a child in California is that she will never know the unparalleled joy of a snow day.
Yeah we have the same ken- and yes it's well over the 12" height limit for Brian's snowblower too. Looks like about 18-20" as of now. It's still snowing, and blowing wind...
They did a robo-call announcing a state of emergency with all vehicles ordered off the roads from 5pm (now) until 5am tomorrow morning. (not that anyone sane would go out in their car in this) Hope our power doesn't go off!
Looks pretty, Lisa. When I got my snowblower out to do the driveway, the snow was over the top of the auger housing, I guess about 14 or 15 inches. Stopped snowing for a while, but it is snowing again.
"The dulcimer sings a sweet song."
I took this little video from my window a few hours ago, at the point where we 'only' had about 8"... right now it's 3:pm and we've got about14"...still coming down supposedly for hours to come.
Except for the other night, I haven't been on here for a few years. Now I'm all graduated and have too much time on my hands and looking for the bag vids, lol. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, is there a thread with all of them in one place? Here's an example of a bag vid, they were a hit a few years ago... http://fotmd.com/brian-g/youtube/410/an-dro-fretted-dulcimer
Just a heads up in case FOTMD goes down during the big blizzard expected to hit the northeast US tomorrow Tuesday-
if this site goes down due to power outages (our server is in New Jersey) never fear- have a hot cocoa and we'll return as soon as possible!
