Thanks all Smile Alex, she's a Golden Retriever mix---they think possibly mixed with "Whippet", which is a small Greyound. Hard to believe she'll be 10 in April! OhMy I can remember coming on the LH board and sharing the news that we'd adopted an 8 week old puppy! loveheart


Savannah, how much snow do you think you've gotten so far? It's STLL snowing here....it's been just a light snow since about 6pm...from 2-6 it was snowing crazy hard. Rob, are you due to get very much?

Wow! We are definitely at 4 already, no doubt, so I'm thinking they underestimated our prediction (which is 2-4"), because it is STILL snowing, hard!!

I think they're calling for about 6 inches. We've gotten 2-3 so far.

Rob, Casey had such a sweet face.

They said it will be in the 60's tomorrow and then snow overnight into Tuesday. I'm with everyone, I'm so done with winter!





Spring is finally here, the lovely pink blooms on the "spray" tree outside my window are gone leaving a beautiful willow.

Well, they're now saying a total of 8" is probable by morning, and a 1/2 " of ice. Yikes And I have to leave the house by 9:15 to attend a funeral out of town. Huh?

Not sure how much we're supposed to get...after a few nice, warm days last week, I'm not looking forward to more snow and cold, yuck!

Chelsey is adorable, Amy. I'm with her thinking, "didn't we just get rid of this stuff?"

It looks like Casey was a lover of snow too, Rob. What a sweet picture.

We ended up with 8 - 10 inches of snow in our area, with some pretty deep drifts. We were at a benefit fundraiser last night that Tim put together to raise funds for The American Cancer Society, and the snow was drifted so deep in the parking lot. I was driving our VW Jetta and knew I was going to be in trouble when the snow was drifted deeper than the tires. Got stuck badly enough in the parking lot that I had to be pushed out, twice. You couldn't even see the driveway and I ended up following some tire tracks down a curb, onto the road. Yikes The roads weren't plowed at all and that little car was being thrown all around in tire tracks and drifts in the road. I got stuck twice on a couple of side roads (thankfully, got out of those fine). I got stuck trying to get into our driveway. Again, I couldn't tell where the driveway was and ended up catching the edge of the curb. I ended up just digging the car out and parking on the street, even though we're not supposed to during snow emergencies, because there were at least 2 foot drifts of snow in the driveway. I was never so glad to get home in my entire life.

Now, I'm just waiting for the others to wake up because I am not attempting to shovel that driveway by myself. Tim, Devin, and Devin's friend didn't make it home until 4 this morning. Plus, there are 2 cars that have to be moved, and one is Devin's friends. We were supposed to get 2 - 3 inches of snow, with possibly 1/2 inch of ice.

Wow, Teresa. If we ended up with that much snow, I would be hibernating until it's all gone.

I looked out the window this morning and saw the roads were covered, but didn't realize exactly how much snow til I stepped outside. We got another 8 inches of the white stuff that pretty much had just melted away from the last storm. I am more than ready for spring!

We got about 10 inches here. Teresa!! You poor thing! Hearing your totals always makes me regret complaining about my own.

Pam, I am SO glad you got home safely! I'm sure that was quite the white knuckle trip. Sounds like you had more wind than we did here, with all those drifts you had. Hope you got everything shoveled out!!

I had to go to a funeral today....luckily once I got out of my subdivision it wasn't too bad on the main roads. I guess all the side roads are still really bad though, because my son has a snow day tomorrow.


And I'm with you Christina---bring on spring!!!!!!!
