What do "February" and "ugly shoes" have in common? I hate them both. I think I have PTSD from childhood. Because of February. I would like to lobby that we go from January 31 to March 1. Just cut the whole darn month right out of the calendar. The blizzard we got on Friday into Saturday? Just one more piece of evidence that the month is total crap. Here are some photos of the snow.
It started off pretty slow, with just a pretty dusting.
But it was gaining force and accumulating.
Next morning there was quite a bit of snow piled up. (I didn't get a good photo of it, but there was at least 2.5 feet of snow on the roof of our car.) When we shoveled out the parking area we measured over 30 inches, but I think some of that had to be from drifting. It was a lot of work to clean up from the storm, but we didn't lose our power and I am so grateful for that. I went to bed on Friday night worried that we were going to lose power and panicking over how I was going to get my coffee in the morning. I know, this is a reason to get a french press. But how do you grind the beans, smartypants? With a hammer? I guess that could work. I should pre-grind some coffee and store it in the freezer for emergencies. Yes, that is all the storm preparedness I need. (note on that photo, that is the light at 6:30 AM. Why was I up at 6:30 on a Saturday? Because Sassy had been screaming for a half hour because apparently she doesn't know the difference between weekdays and weekends. Oh yeah, she is feeling MUCH better these days.)
This one, yeah, she was not phased by the storm in the least. Hope you had a good weekend. Despite it being February and all.
