Hi everyone! I thought I’d give you all a vicarious blizzard experience since luckily we still have power, and a snug house, food and entertainment. There’s a YouTube video as well as still photos. If you live in New England, never mind…just go outside! It’s still blowing with sustained winds about 25 mph here, with gusts to over 50! This first bit is some video I shot this morning. This is the first time I’ve ever tried to narrate, so apologies for any (all) mess-ups with the audio!
I have NO idea how neighbor-and-plow-guy Alex is going to plow the mountain of snow, and it is simply too windy for him to come out, as he usually does, and make multiple passes every time another six inches falls. Besides which the wind would just blow the snow all over anyway!
Eli decided to take the dog out as I got ready to take pictures and video. The dog was NOT amused. He got 2 1/2 of his feetsies outside the door and promptly turned around to come back in. Eli got him out:
And the before and after pics, first looking at the view (or what is left of it):
Twenty four hours later…
Then the garage, before:
And now I’m going to clean up the dishes and shower while we have electricity; if power goes out, so does the water pump! Then a cozy day at home reading and working on my watercolor class! Hope you’ve enjoyed the blizzard…we are! Joshua and Ashley are also home–most businesses (almost all?) are closed down, and texting works! So we are snug in our home, together.
