We fared much better than thousands. For us, the storm dumped more snow than sleet or ice, and we kept our power. I’m very thankful. School was cancelled, so I have my sweeties home with me today. And I could tell you the hilarious story of how I went outside to clear the driveway this morning since Zan is not available to be my Hero, but I will spare you the details. I will just say that hauling a stalled snowblower back up the icy driveway, while waiting for the roof ice to dump off my slate roof and kill me, is an experience I could have lived without! Luckily my Dear Neighbor was outside to cheer me on and laugh at me the entire time! *tee*hee* I managed to shovel and blow a narrow path just wide enough to back my car through. The rest will wait for Dear Neighbor’s husband, who is my Backup Hero, to come and finish the job. I’ll have to get busy so I have his favorite brownies waiting for him when he pulls in. I’m not above bribery. 🙂
It really is quite beautiful outside this morning. Take a peek.

And look how pretty this tree is this morning. Remember those berries that were in my masthead awhile back?
And our plowdrivers have been very busy. (Thank you!)
