6″-12″ is what we were supposed to get. Ok, we’re ready.
Ice melt, boots and shovels all ready.
Checked outside before heading to bed late Friday night. The snow had begun. Very pretty.
Next morning’s view of the driveway:
Now they say more like 12″-18″. Well, it kept on coming and this is what it looked like this morning at the front door
We wound up getting over 28″ and the drifts were amazing. We had shoveled the front porch and driveway mid-afternoon on Saturday so I cannot even imagine how high the drift would have been if we hadn’t.
Other than the one time shoveling expedition, we had a nice day indoors yesterday. We didn’t lose power so that was great. I was able to spend some time in the sewing room, watched a movie and made some delicious Roasted Tomato Soup
The backyard sure does look like a winter wonderland today
We’ve got the cars and driveway dug out thanks in large part to three of our neighbor’s sons. He always make sure that they go around and help those of us who don’t have young able-bodied shovelers living at home and who are not as young as we used to be.
Now let’s just hope the plow doesn’t block us in too badly when it comes around.
Too tired now to do much sewing or cutting. I would probably mess something up if I tried so I will just watch the football game and either work on a knitted dishcloth or maybe some handwork (hexis). Maybe a little bit of both. I also have Madam Secretary and Downtown Abbey on the schedule tonight but since they are opposite each other, I am dvr’ing both of them and then I can choose which to watch tonight and which to watch either later tonight or tomorrow.
Hope everyone dealing with this storm is safe and warm tonight.
Have a great week. See you soon.
