Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

It started snow on Sunday, and it literally hasn't stopped. The local schools have been closed for two days, and they are on a two-hour delay this morning.

Yesterday morning someone from the Weather Channel broadcast from North East, Pennsylvania, which is my old hometown. They reported 19" of snow had fallen. Pooh! They should have driven 20 minutes down the road to my place; there had to have been at least three feet on my deck when I left for work just after that report. The snow is so impressive that the Canadians called us last night because they heard about it on their news - 8 hours away.

Last night after supper we went out to clear off more of the deck as the weather report is calling for another 6" of the stuff. We are cornball enough to bring the camera with us. The lump behind me is the snow that has built up on the grill.

According to the weatherman, we should see some rain Thursday and Friday before we start getting dumped with more snow. Needless to say, the snowmobilers in my family are thrilled!

It Missed us. Chelsey is getting tons of the lake effect stuff... All I can say is,..."HO HO HO!"... Bundle up--take your vitamens....

Keep the snow over there - we just have a dusting!

THis is so funny...I opened the deck door to let the dog out to wee this morning and he looks at me like "You have got to be kidding!" and then struggled to go out and do his business. I'm hoping there is no grilling in our immediate future either! Christmas Eve is steak night and we'll shovel for that!

Well that certainly is a lot of snow! I love the picture though. It looks like it should look this time of year. We're still waiting for ours. Hopefully we'll have some by Christmas:)
Stay warm!

Wow! You did get the snow! It's been snowing nonstop here, but we can't touch what you have going on!

I definitely do not envy you Mary. We only have an inch or two here and that is too much for me. Please be safe and bundle up when you have to go out.
Hugs,
AMY

we had our first snow, very early (if at all) in the netherlands.
I think you're well prepared, aren't you? but it must be cold ánd a lot of work. hopefully there's some fun in it too.

Cheryl said...

Oh, it looks so pretty. We have just a light covering on the ground. Saying we may get some more this weekend, I am hoping.

I love the snow ... we rarely see it here in the South. The only huge snow we had here in my lifetime was about 2 feet back in 1993 and it was gorgeous! Of course we get just a half inch and everything closes down!
Hugs and stay warm,
Donna

We got snow here in Tn, too! Just enough to cover the ground, but I am thrilled :)
We are going home to northern Ohio for Christmas, so hopefully we will get lot's of snow. Of course, my parents are *over it* and say NOOOOO! when I keep hoping for mucho snow when we are there!
Happy Holidays to you and your family, Mary!

Good grief! I'm glad you posted a photo of it. We barely have any snow here in my neck of Canada - you can still see the grass poking through. Keep it all your way because there are no snowmobilers here!

Oh I am so glad that we are not having that weather. make sure your roof is clear if you are going to get rain. the snow sucks it up like a spong and makes it so heavy. just a couple of years ago we had that kind of winter. yech!

Sure makes me happy that I live in south Texas. I'd love to see a tiny bit, but not too much.

Stay warm!
