Snowed In

blog-0554670001423583903.jpgThe winter weather here in New England this year is unbelievable . In the past 3 weeks we have had about 60" of snowfall and in some areas it is still snowing. Most news stations are reporting that the storm has moved on out. Forecasters are already talking about the next "plow able" storm brewing for Thursday night. Our little town has come to a screeching halt with most residents screaming Uncle! Luckily we have not lost power this time around. Many municipalities have closed for the day and parking bans remain in effect so that emergency vehicles can do their jobs. Schools are closed as are all State offices. The MBTA a has stopped service of all commuter rail service for trains and subways. A thick blanket of snow covers our little town as far as the eye can see. The sound of snow plows can be heard in the distance. The cleanup has begun. We feel trapped.......but not for long, after all we are New Englanders. We are used to the ever changing climate here. We know how fickle Mother Nature can be. Today dawn breaks and with it a renewed hope and resilience. We take the collective deep breath and together we begin the dig out. Neighbors emerge from their homes and one shovelful at a time we get it done. That's what we do here. What choice do we have? None. Most of us wouldn't have it any other way, THINK SPRING!....only 38 days!

Good to see you, again, Roxie! What a beautiful word-picture you paint - to go along w/ your delightful pictures, that is!

 

We've had a lot of snow where I am, too, but not as much as what you New Englanders are experiencing. Hope you're all dug out soon - and yes, I'm looking forward to spring, too! :)

LOL! I know what you mean about computers!

 

Meanwhile, I'm glad you dropped by. It sounds as if life has been taking you to some interesting "places." Hope you stick around long enough to tell us about them. But even if you'd rather not let us know, I hope we see you more often anyway. 

 

Also, hope your GC have as much fun in the snow as mine do! The one thing I like about it is how much pleasure it gives them (well that and the fact that it can be very pretty, sometimes, of course).

Oh my lord, another foot last night with high winds. The National Guard arrived two days ago! We are fine, just waiting for spring and hoping there is not a lot of rain. Parking and driving bans are being enforced. I hope you fared as well. At least a big storm like this gives license to doing nothing except eating, reading and watching t.v.. Be well

It's can't even imagine having to deal with all that snow. A few years ago we had 18" in the yard for about two weeks, which included one week without power. Now that it is April, I hope you are having some Spring.
