Snowmaggedon, Snowpocalypse, Snowtorious...and other non-snow stuff

There are names flying all over the place for the blizzard that hit DC this weekend. We measured just over 28 inches in our area. Donnie and I have been shoveling and Bug announced this morning that it was his turn to shovel BY MYSELF. (In good time, little man, I'm guessing around 2017 you'll get your chance.) I'll post some pictures soon when I get my act together and can upload to my OWN computer...this is a loaner but I think you get the idea that our area is blanketed at the moment.

Bug saw the snow and decided Christmas is coming so we watched our share of holiday DVDs over the weekend and had hot chocolate (thank God I remembered to get more whipped cream!). The one who doesn't care for the snow...little Miss Clara. Thirteen inches of dog and 28 inches of snow isn't a fair matchup for the little pup.

I'm still patting myself on the back for buying snowboots this winter! They've been tested a few times and are snugly warm. Good thing...we're supposed to get more snow this week. One report I saw said one inch...another said 5-10. This is why we're always surprised when we actually get snow in this area!

  4. thank you!

    i was wondering about you this weekend when i saw what kind of weather you were having. stay warm and safe.

  5. LOL..poor Miss Clara. Your storm has actually affected me over here in the west. Im supposed to have a major inspection at work, but the guy is snowed in in its been postponed. Woo Hoo! Stay warm!

  6. ugh, snow. we were in dc last weekend when it snowed and i was so ready to put a spoon in my eye. luckily it just rained (and rained) in nc. good luck getting out of the slush!

  7. Oh my goodness...Rose is perfect to win that giveaway!! :)
    Thanks for the award and I'm SUPER impressed you did all those stinky links. Gah!

  8. 28 inches of snow?! Thats almost half my height!

  9. Thank you kindly!

    I too was wondering how you were doing with all the snow. I'm a little bit jealous, because we usually have a lot of snow on the ground this time of year. But driving in it is the worst...I'm sure you know that. Thank goodness for Bug and hot chocolate.


  10. That is a TON of snow! Sounds like fun! We haven't had very much snow here this winter. Very strange.
    Enjoy! :)

    And congrats on your award!

  11. I read 'mood swing' in the title and knew I'd feel at home!

    I'm in DE. We got 26 inches and the entire state is still closed. If we get the snow they're predicting for tonight, the state will be closed all week! It's really amusing!

    I'm your newest follower!

  12. AWWWWWWWWWW thank you!!! I feel so special!!!!! And send some of that snow back down here to GA, it was only rain when I sent it up to you ;)

  13. thank you so much for thinking of me.

    And good luck with this new snow. It's out of control. My hubby is home the third day in a row tomorrow - which is cool as long as we don't lose power.
