~The Worst Storm In 10 Years!!!

Hi Hi!!! Well, I have internet service now!! It's been intermittent since the storm. Holy Moses it has been quite a few days here. Hubby was coming up the hill to our home, and got his work truck stuck on the cliff side of the road. Whew!! Thank the Lord he didn't go over! Then, he walked the rest of the way up (in a blizzard, a whiteout) and got in the skid steer to retrieve the truck, and the skid steer got stuck in the 3 feet of snow in the driveway. So we dug out the skid steer and got it going! I shoveled and Mikey plowed. Two hours later we got the driveway cleaned. My wonderful husband was able to plow the snow away from the work truck and drive it home...then he walked back for the skid steer. He ended up cleaning the whole road, just so he could get out in the morning! The highway that our road is off of, was closed, and because of the whiteout, they weren't running the snow plows. It was a mess!! Truly as mess! I've been in the Midwest now for 13 years and I've never seen anything like it!! Madness!! I took a few pictures of the front and back yards, although it is difficult to see how tall the snow is. We had 4ft. drifts in the driveway... My neighbor's doggies are running towards me, so maybe you can get the perspective. Big Snow!! Also, Here's the wreath, it's not a good picture, but since the internet was back up I thought I'd hurry and post. So quickly quickly I am taking pictures and typing!!! Gotta go before I lose it!! Hugs everyone, I'll be back to visit all of your blogs when I can get service!!!! Whoo Hoo! Get out the sled!!! Blessings~


  1. Oh you poor Dears! I certainly hope everything [Net, power, etc.] keeps working there, now.

    Don't worry about visiting blogs. Just keep posting when you can, so we know you are ok.

    Gentle hugs,
    Aunt Amelia

  2. It was terribly windy here yesterday and today it's still blowing making it frigid out but we only got what I call a dusting of snow so far.The ground is white and there were only a few slippery spots when I went to work this morning where the snow had drifted. More to come I'm afraid this is only the beginning of winter, well officially the end of fall, but it won't be long now and it will be winter. Your wreath is beautiful.

  3. I have seen the storms on our TV news...boy that's a lot of snow!
    Take care out on the roads, hope it eases off soon.

    Puts our 2 inches to safe!


  5. Goodness... we are getting no snow but darn if it's not giving my olde New England a run for her money. It's COLD here. I mean really COLD!!! I have therm up to 74 just trying to keep the house warm enough for me and the dogs. Well mostly Boodles (the boston terror) as he has no hair to keep warm. I know when my hubs gets stuck he calls me to get him out. I'm so used to it from back east. I don't envy you at all my friend, not even a little bit. Nope. But I will pray for you for continued electricity and warmth. So many are loosing their power just from the cold lines. Yikes. Be safe, be warm and be blessed. Hugs. Tammy

  6. OH.. your wreath is drop dead gorgeous girl!! Beautiful. Tammy

  7. Hi Sharon,
    Isn't it funny how the men get to sit and drive a plow and the woman gets to do the shoveling? At least that's how it works around here too. That's OK though, because it means I can eat an extra cookie or two. What a storm you got!

  8. Wow!! what an adventure! looks so pretty (now) but such a struggle and ordeal!


  9. What's all that white stuff???

    Oh, wait! I remember now... it's snow! And yeah, that's A LOT!

    Love the wreath!

  12. Dear Sharon ~~ What an awful storm and so much snow. I hope your iternet holds up for you and the power especially to keep you warm etc.
    I am so glad you liked my joke about the computer tech. I loved it too, how stupid, no power, why won't the PC work? Take care my friend, and
    have a wonderful Christmas and a very
    Happy New Year in 2010. Love, Merle.
