The Weather Outside Was Frightful

Early Friday
Skylight in the Cave
Friday P.M. still have power.
Sat A.M. Still have power. Whew.
Sun. We lucked out. It hit 50 degrees and the snow is melting.
Philly Saturday. Not as lucky. 20 inches.

  1. Scary how many died.
    We got a little ice and that was it. Bummer.

  2. Glad to hear you didn't lose electricity and the snow is melting. We were lucky and the storm just nicked my area. We only got 4 inches of snow. But it was more than enough for me. Is it July, yet?

  3. So awful to hear of the chaos being caused and especially that lives have been lost. With only a few days of snow here that didn't amount to much, I long for anything but the days upon day of rain we are having but then again a Brit (and we all know how we like to moan abut the weather) I'd be complaining no matter what.

  5. Hi, dear Sandra!

    I'm happy to know that Snowzilla spared you the brunt of his wrath. My friends up in York got at least two feet with deeper drifts. Here in Central Florida: ZERO! It has been refreshingly cool the last few days and I hope we get more of this type of weather.

    Have a wonderful day, dear friend Sandra!

  8. I've seen photos from New York and Washington, and although it looks fun and playful I always think of all the poor homeless people, beggars, people without heating and animals :(

  11. Glad you didn't lose power. Very sad at the death toll. It reminds me of the Blizzard of '77 which I remember very well. Many died at that time and lost power but we were lucky. I was off school for 2 weeks because they couldn't find the school-it was snowed under!

    1. Oh my gosh, your school snowed under. I remember that blizzard.

    2. It did! I was so happy:) I remember the snow being over the hydro wires because we all would toboggan down and just duck under the wires. Crazy!

  12. When we're kids, snow is fun because it means snowball fights and snowmen. But now that we're older, snow can be inconvenient or even scary, especially the blizzard, which put a lot of people's lives at risk. I'm glad that you didn't get hurt and that you didn't lose power!

  13. Our old neighborhood was without power for 8 hours on Friday. We moved last May...I'm so glad we weren't there this year! We had power all weekend but I'm tired of cooking and doing dishes. I didn't realize how often we do takeout...cooking every single meal is exhausting!

    1. Glad you moved too, Steph. No power is nasty! Cooking every meal...yikes. That is exhausting.

  14. Not losing power is the big thing. It is beautiful.

  15. Pretty. I especially like the sky-light picture. Neat! It's a good thing your power didn't go. I've heard some stories :(

  16. Wow, that is a lot of snow. Glad you were able to have power throughout. Blizzards are no joke, hope you stay warm and safe!
