We had snow!!!

 It's been a rough few days......We had been told on a daily basis that "a storm of epic proportions" was coming.Being a good little New Englander I knew what I had to do. FILL ALL TANKS WITH FUEL!!!!! I called my local oil service man and had him fill the tank and made an appointment to have the burner cleaned at their convenience. Fill the containers for the snow blower....check. Make sure the cars had fuel in their tank and then sat back and waited for the storm to start.


This is the window over my sink . You can't really see anything because snow and wind  were forced between the windows all night long. Our town only had 15 inches. Some had as much as 30+ but, here is the bad news. My Oh So ready Furnace had a malfunction with the ignitor!!!!!! Let me give you the translation NO HEAT FOR 22 HOURS IN O DEGREE WEATHER WITH 40 + MILE AN HOUR WINDS.
A call was made to have the furnace repaired but, it would have been dangerous for him to drive to our home .........a state of emergency was in place in N.H. and no vehicles were permitted on the road. Life has gotten complicated .........you now need permission to be on the road!!!! Ah , the good old days.
All is well now and we are in the middle of cleanup wind is still blowing, snow is now gently drifting by. Cars were blow clean by all the wind That's nice. Porches had about 5 feet drifts. Not so nice.All the men were out shoveling so...........


I spent my time making goodies in the kitchen.I had prepared all the steps to make these Apple turnovers. Company is coming on Sunday for a brunch and ........
looks like everything will be good to go......said the hobbit

I just sent you a comment via my Yahoo.com I have been having trouble with pop-up and words in a script being underlined and becoming a pop-up. I add a new program to protect me from further problems, but I think is going to be worse than the first problem.

I tried to paste and post it Connie but, didn't work. Things are calm right now. Heat is on.... as the song goes and we are trying to get the chill out of these old bones. I hear Wednesday we are expecting 40 degree weather.Lie in New England is very unpredictable. Spring is coming is my current mantra

Wow you really got a lot of snow! I'm glad you have great! We only got 5".The worry always is that everyone would lose heat in a storm. Glad things are back to normal for you.

We had snow too, and lots of it. Unfortunately we are now dealing with an icy rain and I hear the temps are going to rise. I was hoping to have actual winter for more than a few days!!

Hi Jeanette and preserve and Pickled We had a beautiful Sunday and everyone had a chance to do some major clean up but, as I write this it is snowing again......hopefully it will be just a trace. Winter is still with us.
