So the kids have a snow day... They are playing Minecraft on the computer and I am drinking coffee. The snow is starting to pile up and I think we are going to close the restaurant for lunch. I have about a half an hour drive from home. Maybe it will slow down a bit and we can salvage dinner.
My Neighbour is slow blowing our driveway. I guess bringing home food is paying off.

Looks like you guys out east are going to get hammered. Stay warm and safe. Then have fun taking the kids sledding.

The plan worked. Bravo.

Not me. I would have asked who was the last person in the bathroom and why they left the water running. She would have searched for something to change the subject and try and blame me about that happened a year ago. Accidents happen to everyone. No big deal. Just accept it, move on, and try to prevent it from occurring again. I've learned not to hold it in - it will just get worse and show up later. Glad the damage isn't that bad.

When I make a mistake, actual or perceived, then I apologize, reflect, and move on to avoid repeating the same trangression. I can't stand people who refuse to accept responsibility for their own mistakes, especially when they then blame others for the same thing.

In 2011, we had 18-24'' on the ground when that snow came.

EDIT: Sorry for the huge picture. I swiped it from FB
Prayers for all those in the path of this storm. We've only had one snowfall like that in KY in my adult life, but the snow only went half way up to the mailbox. It's not the snow, but the potential complications that result from it.

Very true. We're more concerned with power lines and tress going down then we are the snow.


But the snow is a pain to clean up!

True- One thing in our favor is in the last 2 years we have had some major storms that have knocked down so many trees. Hopefully most of the weak trees have been eliminated by now. But with a heavy snow and a NE wind around 40 with gusts of 60-75mph, there still could be major issues.

Yeah, but your not at work. Stupid International customers.

Stay safe and warm! Snow is starting to pick up here. Hopefully we can get our critical stuff done soon as get out of here.

It worked very well. This was essentially how he started turning into a geek. When he was 2 he came downstairs and saw the opening of The Battle of Hoth. He was hooked. They have numerous early reader and kiddie Star Wars books. They know most of the story but not many of the more gruesome details.

So this storm is an Alberta clipper and a Texas low coming together. Next time you guys in Texas want to give us something......let's just say its the thought that counts.

BE safe up there Paul.


Unfortunately, Melody HAD to go into work. She doesn't get out till 7 tonight (hopefully). I hope the roads are still open at that time so she could get home. I made her an emergency bag for the car with blankets, water, gloves, a scarf, a hat, and food- god forbid she ever got stuck.

You might want to think about a late lunch instead at LTT. Cheaper and the 3:00 parade comes right by your door. When I eat there, I usually shoot for a 2:00 ADR.

Thank goodness it is winter and we live in a drafty house. Even with a humidifier running, the air tends to be very dry. At least it should all dry well, and then we can assess the damage.
Dude- that's awful. I'm cheap and not handy around the house so I hate unexpected home damage.

I guess Connecticut husbands are nicer than Virginian ones. When we get snow, I just give her a pat on the fanny and say "Good Luck- don't hit anything."
