Blizzard, But Life Goes On

 We had a blizzard here that dropped more than 15 inches of snow beginning on Sunday afternoon through Monday morning. Yesterday was clean up day, and there was alot of shoveling and plowing going on even though the wind gusts were strong. Thankfully my neighbor used his snow blower to clean out my driveway entrance and sidewalk, and he also helped other people on the street. God bless him. I did the walk and front porch and the inside driveway.
No sewing going on here. Hopefully, tonight maybe.


This is the snow mound on the left side of the driveway.  It doesn't look too bad in the picture  Walking is dangerous because there is so much ice, and so people stay in the street, which are all salted and sanded.  But then when you reach your destination you need to find a clear path to get to the sidewalk again or else climb over a snow mound.  The kids do that:)  That must be why they call us hardy New Englanders. 
Moxie's tipped toed out a few times, but only lasts a few minutes.  This morning the windchill was 6 degrees, the temperature 17.  But, by this weekend it will be in the 40's.  If you don't like the weather, wait a minute.

I've been out twice today to my church to serve morning Mass and to serve at a funeral.  And now I think I'm taking a walk to the library to get something to read. 

God Bless!
