Snow, Snow and More Snow!

This is our second major snowstorm even though I remember others that were much fiercer with more snow. I do like to watch it come down and feel warm and comfy inside while it does. As I get older, I dislike going out in the snow more and more. Sigh!

Some photos I snapped during the storm and one the day after while it is still white.

The poor birds managed to feed more than ever to keep warm during this storm. My husband kept their feeders full by filling them beforehand. Smart man!

We had more snow than I expected. When my husband went out to shovel off the back deck, he said there was 10-12 inches. That is without much wind or drifting as the previous storm.

It’s a sunny day today and pleasant but still chilly at 30’s F temp. During the storm it was in the teens. Brrr! We are having some cold temps this week too – as low as 4 degrees F and up to the 30’s in high temps. When it is in the 30’s after we experienced teens and single digits, 30’s feels warm. It is all in prospective. We New Englanders are hardy folks. Being an older New Englander I don’t feel as harder anymore! Ha!

I worked on my WIP while I watched it snow. It is coming along slowly, a little slower than I want but all it all it will be a long book, longer than the first. I am at Chapter 23 at 220 pages and over 27K words and not quite halfway through. Oh well, onward and upward!

I hope you are all saying safe, warm, cozy and well wherever you may live in this world. Prayers to the Ukraine that they will be strong enough to persevere and stay free.

Thank you for stopping by to read this post. Feel free to grab some snow if you don’t have any where you live. It is fun to see, touch and play in for children, not so much for older people!

Stop by again real soon for more posts about whatever pops into my already overcrowded brain. Keep reading, reviewing and sharing books you love everywhere. Thank you for your kind support of my blog and books and for any reviews you post wherever you purchased by books.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

  1. Wow, Janice, just look at all that snow.

    I’d love snow and more snow. All we have is drizzly, dark, cold and gloomy rain and more rain.

  3. Jan Sikes says:

    The snow is beautiful, but I’m about ready for spring. The sun is shining here today, but that is following an ice storm. I’ll take snow over ice any day! Thanks for sharing. Happy Sunday!

  4. Jennie says:

    It was pretty. 8-12″ is manageable. Thank goodness there was no ice.

    We’ve not had much luck with snow this year. Plenty of rain and wind type storms. A bunch of hail too. But very little snow, what we got went away almost as fast as we could notice it, and I’m still hoping we get more before this month is out. Chances are slim, but I can hope, right?

    Great photos, Janice. You are so fortunate to live where you get lots of snow. I love winter and especially the snow when we get some. Love and hugs.
