The Retraction


They said 10-16"of white stuff was predicted across the state, and I couldn't wait.   I really, really, really needed it for a lot of reasons.   However, asking the Pres last night what we got, whenever he told me "about 4", I said under my breath...bah-humbug!

Sure the wind was (and still is today) crazy 20-30 mph with higher gusts and the visibility was really bad making it really nasty outside, but darn I really was looking forward to putting on my snowshoes!  I haven't used them in what seems like forever.  

The local weather had explained that strong winds from MA (North of us) had created a "dry pocket" in the NE corner and that was us.

Hitting the sheets like a sad, spoiled little girl, I thought well it will be easier for us to clean up...especially at our age.  After breakfast, I waited patiently for the Pres to wake up, eat and get dressed because I'd told him that I would run the snow blower rather than shovel.  Following the suggestion from our local news channel to shovel in segments, yesterday I made two separate runs...one at 9 am then the second at 11:30 am.  It was after my second shoveling escapade that the Pres just told me not to bother.

Well, now I have to retract my disgruntled attitude along with the bah-humbug".  We got 10"!!  As you can see, the only footprints in the snow were made with my boots...so far.

seeing, saying, sharing...

Better you than me. It's snowing here right now and I'm kicking myself for forgetting to bring my boots home with me when I left work today

wow, enjoy and I am glad it is not me..
I was wondering about your area, when you left that comment saying you only got about 5". Now I see Mother Nature fooled you. (She came back with a dusting on my area this morning. The weather guy said the storm diameter is 700+ miles, and it's still swirling over this entire area, but mostly dry over CT today.) I got about 15" to 16". I don't like it. :-(
