Holed Up Today

February 26, 2011


We’ve got snow, lots of it. We had a big storm yesterday, and got clobbered. When I checked at 8am yesterday morning, probably about 1 or 2 inches had fallen. Two hours later, we got about 5 inches. Woohoo.

So how much snow do you think the old tree can bear? šŸ˜®

Feb Snow 1

Visibility maybe… 100 feet?

Feb Snow2

After all was said and done, we wound up with 9 inches. Not too shabby.

It’s said that February is the most difficult month. Good thing it’s so brief.

How’s the weather where you are?

    I will tell you how our weather is on one condition and that is you don’t clobber me. Agreed? *take a step back* It’s absolutely beeeautiful here in sunny East Tennessee with temps in the mid 50s.

    The snow is absolutely gorgeous, but I know many of my friends in neighboring states, as well as across the country are so over the white’s stuff accumulating. It’s been a wild winter to say the least.

    Keep warm and think happy thoughts…spring is on its way!

    Have an awesome weekend!

    Hi Rebecca
    Thank you so much for all the funny, informational posts. I come every day to see what you are investigating/talking about. Love the Livvy too. I have a 4 year old rescued kitty. Love him lots.
    The weather here today is freezing. For us in California it’s like being in the Artic. Have to go run warm water to thaw out my hands. lol
    Take care and have a great weekend. At least it’s sunny!!! Blessings Mary

    We had about 30-foot visibility yesterday. We got about a foot of snow, which makes for not so great snowboarding. šŸ˜› Cool pics!

    I’m just tired of the cold and snow. I figure we have another month of this before it starts to break. I hope I can make it. It sure would help if the snowdrops and crocus I planted would just humor me and show their pretty little heads.

    We were in the 70’s today after having a cold front yesterday in the 30’s. Weather in Oklahoma changes so fast that I don’t even pay attention anymore.

    I, too, am tired of snow and ice. Living in the midwest you would think I would be used to it but I am not. Hence why I have spent as little time in Iowa during February as possible. Last week Texas, next week North Carolina. Good to have children who live in warm weather states!

    Our Pastor’s willow tree fell over in the last storm we had Friday–lots of ice. We got like 10 inches in one day!

    We FINALLY got some well needed mositure in the form of snow last night! woo hoo!! We have had zip in moisture since before Xmas so I have had to water my flower and garlic gardens every couple of weeks! I love the weather this weekend and the snow is already gone šŸ™

    We had a couple of inches of snow, which I easily removed with the tractor’s scraper blade. The sun quickly removed the little bit of residue left on the drive. I think you’ve had much more snow there in NY that we’ve had here in west MI.
