Blizzard Redux


Frozen Food

I'm worried because the robins returned too early this year. I'm not sure our feathered friends like frozen food.


Blizzard Redux

My neighbor's concerned about the implications of our Blizzard Redux on the stray cat she's been feeding. Yesterday, we had another 10 inches dumped on top of the 30 inches or so we received last weekend. How does a kitty cat walk in all that?


Unwelcome Insulation

I've thought~too much, perhaps~about what happens to my four beautiful pink azalea bushes that are buried, right here, under this unwelcome insulation. And DC's Cherry Blossoms are expected in a month!

The Saint Roman Snow Team

Members of The Saint Roman Snow Team fret because our community snowblower ran over a newspaper in someone's driveway yesterday, seriously jeopardizing the Team's ability to effect snow removal on our cul-de-sac. They might have to resort to more conventional techniques.

Old Glory Snowed In

But then again, we could take the "glass half-full" approach to all of this. With even Old Glory snowed in, school's been cancelled for the week. No worries here about Ladybug Inservices & whatnot. One of the neighbor kids who has a plow on his truck is coming to the rescue of our beleaguered Snow Team today. The fridge is stocked & the power's still on (knock on wood!).

So, what was I complaining about again?

Hi
Thanks for stopping by and your comment made me laugh, I shouldn't but it was funny, in the northwoods here we have not had a snow storm like that in a few years.

I think when you posted a picture of snow up to the bottom of your windows, it really put it all into perspective for me. That's a lot of freaking snow. But whatever it takes to get you out of Ladybug Inservices. I can appreciate that. Plus, you have power. And access to someone with a plow. You are basically on vacation (minus the margaritas and tanning oil). But hey, at least the satellite is in working order!

quilly said...

I am glad you are content with your share of the snow and our share of the snow, too. Today the flowers bloomed here. ;)

cat said...

Oh wow, that last picture is beautiful.

Susie said...

That is an insane amount of snow!! I am glad to hear that the neighborhood is pulling together!

Tara R. said...

I'd say you need to come on down the the beaches here on the Gulf Coast, but you probably can't get to the air port. That is a stunning amount of snow. I'm glad your warm and stocked for a long hibernation.

Amy said...

Good luck! Rumor has it that the National Guard was up our way yesterday. I should buy a plow, and then I'll be all set.

Christina Lee said...

I love that first pic with the bird-feeder! And oh yeah, poor kitty cat :(

Amanda said...

Wow!!! You guys got hit really hard, I have a previous post on my blog about the snow that hit Ohio but its nothing like some of the other states got!

Lorie said...

It sure is pretty...when it isn't your own backyard!!

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

Wow, you guys really got socked, didn't you!

Great pictures though - and if you're warm, well fed, and comfy inside, then I'd say you have cause to enjoy some snow days!

Mom of Many said...

Luv the pics! See you over @ SITS.

JoeyRes said...

My mother-in-law's electricity was out for six days (just came back on last night). She lives in Washington, PA. That really put things in perspective for me. We've had power the whole time. It can't be that bad!

Mesina said...

What fab pics!! Oh I do love the snow, even though it causes mass chaos here in the UK.
No Im serious, even just half an inch and this country just grinds to a halt!

Paloma said...

I love your writing! You are so funny! Your poor azalea though!!!

Great pics! Loved them!

Paloma.

you are so lucky that you get pretty birds like robins! we get crows! and vultures. we live across the street from a farm, so that's probably why. my inlaws get nice birds. sometimes we get an occasional cardinal, bluebird, bluejay, or goldfinch, but mostly it's nasty birds.

CARMEN said...

Oh my God!As long as you are not brocked from the rest of the world, it is OK...
I hope that you do not have problems with heating in the house
Lovely greetings :)

Lynda said...

And I thought I had something to moan about... I can't even imagine what it would be like to tackle that lot!

It's Always Something Around Here said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I agree it doesn't do any good to complain about it. And things could always be wayyyyy worse.

miss jo said...

It looks like an attack of 7-minute icing has blanketed your house. Go St. Roman Snow Team ! I say take the glass half full approach, consider the heaps of white stuff to be nature's best fertilizer, and just hope it melts in streams, not rivers...Love the superior snaps.

Life with Kaishon said...

Your images mirror my own! : )

Although I heard you guys got more! I don't know how much we got on Saturday but we got 23 inches yesterday! It gives me a headache. There is just SO so SO much.

Lucy said...

I will stop complaining about our 16inches of snow, you clearly have it worse, oh my gosh you poor thing!

LisaLisa said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog....I welcome you anytime!
Oh the snow seems to just keep coming ha. The best part of the post is that everyone is pulling together.....that's cool.

I must say the pictures are so pretty!

The Blonde Duck said...

I would still be complaining about the snow. Now I feel bad about whining about my ice pellets.

blueviolet said...

Oh heck, it sounds to me like you've got it made!!!

Stephanie Faris said...

COOL! It doesn't snow often here but when it does, it just feels nice to be all warm and toasty inside with those you love, as long as you have enough food and electricity to get you through!

erica said...

Great photos and the stories to go along with it...

What is the "Community snow blower"? And where can I get one???

The Mommyologist said...

WOW! You guys got absolutely BURIED!!!

SmartBear said...

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by my humble little blog. I won't be complaining about all the snow WE have now...because...WOW! I'll defintely be back! Enjoy your snow days!

Quasi Serendipita said...

I just can't get over the amount of snow you have. Btw, I used a new method in the kitchen inspired by your husband shoveling snow with pam - will let you know when I post it!

Sarah said...

brrrrr! i'll never survive there!

WhisperingWriter said...

Whew, glad your power is on at least. I've heard that a lot of people lost it.

Melissa @ Cellulite Investigation said...

The old newspaper in the snowblower problem. I hear about it almost daily these days, and I live in south Florida! I do hope the Cherry Blossoms survive this year!

tattytiara said...

Oh you're as bad as I am. Always thrilled to see the first birds of spring, and then I immediately start worrying about them!

JennyMac said...

Blizzard...its a word completely foreign to Atlanta, GA. LOL.

Linda said...

I guess that made the 10" of snow I shoveled look like a dusting!
