The Blizzard of 2016 is underway! The snow started last night about 730p with flurries floating in the air as Peter and I drove our cars to the station to fill up on gas. The flakes in the night sky were pretty — THEN! That was a little over 12 hours ago — things have changed!
Now, they have met up with zillions of their friends and a little over 12 hours later — we are getting buried in New Jersey. The forecast is that it will snow A-L-L D-A-Y! This storm will blow outta here around 230am Sunday morning. I let Jewel outside to pee through the garage this morning. She fought her way over the snow-laden paved driveway to the yard. As soon as the ground changed to grass below her feet, the poor old girl fell down…..like a KID, minus the snowsuit.
After ‘the business’ was done, I dried her off with a towel, esp those precious paws… and we made it safely back inside — with an assist for Jewel from Dad on the garage stairs. Hey — we all need an assist now and then.
So — Blizzard On, Mother Nature. We are safely home with many blessings:
- Hot Tea!…….bread, milk, eggs, t.p.
- A warm fire in the fireplace
- family members safe and sound
- Jewel sleeping on her dog bed, with dry paws 🙂
- Peter’s snow blower is gassed-up and ready
- And I’m …nursing my cold wrapped in my favorite, raggedy old “Linus” sweater 🙂
A happy Saturday, East Coast January style! #100happydays (71/100)
Ciao for now….and stay warm and safe…..Diane
