Buried in SNOW



           Well hello there!


                     Sorry I have been M.I.A lately. It seems the flu bug has hit my darling daughter hard and then there's the itsy bitsy bit of snow we just had....


           Oh I don't mean the few inches from the last post


                                        NO

              
 I mean the mamma jamma of all snow storms


                        Overnight we were blasted with nearly 30" of snow.



                           

I knew it was bad when only after a few hours it looked like this
                                 This is after round #1 of shoveling








A short time later Hubby and I went outside to tackle shoveling a second time
                                         Notice the back of my car







The next day the snow was blocking our front door. But My husband took it in stride....

   He put on a straw hat from a luau party we had a while ago and as he shoveled he had visions of warmer weather...







              Our dog Max didn't have the same positive outlook



It has been a crazy four days. Schools have been cancelled, snow bogged streets and major highways have stranded motorists; mountains of ice have made driving treacherous to say the least.




Which brings me to something that has been on my mind


I am NOT a violent person

I tend to look for the good in everyone

In fact, I have turned the other cheek so many times I have gotten dizzy

so for me to write the following is a bit hard



Here goes.......







If I EVER bump into this chick

                 
                                           Mother Nature






                             I'm going to punch her in the nose!

  5. The first two pictures are so beautiful, but I know what a hard time you must have been having. I was beginning to get worried about you yesterday! I love the straw hat in all this snow!!! We have not gotten more than an inch all season, but are getting some tomorrow at lunchtime. Stay inside and warm!!! P.S. time for a nose job for mother Nature...

  10. Your husband gets the prize for the best expression of a sense of humor. I just hope he had a stocking hat or ear muffs under that straw hat. Brrrr

    I can't imagine that much snow at once. I hope you kept your power.

  13. It has been a long long time but I am slowly getting back in the "game" or blogging world. Looks as if you all got the snow we dream of down here in El Paso but never get. Hope all is well with you and yours and you can come by and visit me at my blog if you remember how to get there. I will keep an eye out for you.
