Our friends in the NE

Hunker down, stoke up the stove....looks like winters back with a vengeance.

Hope everyone's fed, warm, safe, and dry.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Up here in New England....we've got 8 inches here in maine and the actual center of the storm hasn't hit us yet! Ponies are all snuggled up in their stalls, toasty and warm. They've named the storm Nemo! Just keep snowing, just keep snowing!!!

My area has about 8 to 10 inches, as of now. The storm is still coming though!

I'm all snuggled up inside keeping an eye on it through the window. Thankfully, I have tomorrow morning off from work so hopefully the roads will be cleared before I have to go back on Sunday.

We are all hunkered in; extra thick shavings in Ahab's stall, homemade treats for the dogs, James Bond DVD and ice cream for us, but no snow!

Well, okay, maybe a little snow, but not even enough to cover the birdseed I put out this morning! Still, the plowtrucks have kept me awake all night, pushing that one flake of snow up and down the road.

I know I shouldn't, but I kind of envy you. We haven't had even one flake of snow this winter. wouldn't mind a bit of snow. It's like almost Spring here now. daffodils coming up and buds about to break out. freaky.

stay safe!

Just heard on the news, there is a ban on driving in the storm in some states! Being in Canada where our snow is measured in feet rather than inches, I would never go anywhere! However, be safe everyone!

In Canada don't they measure snow in cm? Or at least they do in Nova Scoita, makes no difference, we have a metre on our driveway (which is long) and 30 plus cm every where else. Thank goodness for snowblowers, four wheeler plows, and 4 wheel drive.

There is such flooding where I am that a couple historical towns are under water, a community hall has no roof, Iving gas is missing the roof thing, Mcdonald's lost the M, and fishing boats are floating above the wharf. Great storm, love 140 km wind gusts.

Canada is by cm

Earlier today there was a driving "ban" here. There was black ice with snow drifting over. It was a mess. Even now there still isn't much going on out on the roads. I've been hunkered down for a snow day all day. I'm kinda getting bored lol. Its my excuse to clean the house I guess.

Yeah, send it down here! I've got daffodils, FROGS, moths hatching out, and I noticed the horses have started shedding XO!

Stay safe and warm!

You guys would crack up if you saw the mounds of snow my husband plowed yesterday morning just off the top of our driveway (we live on a tall hill) - I'm only 5', and can't see over the top! We have about 2 fresh ft from what is seen in my avatar taken last week. This is a normal winter for us, and we're so grateful for every precious flake, inch, and foot that will nourish the land in the spring after last summer's heat :)
