I don't know about all of you but I am sooooooooooo over all this snow. I have been shoveling again and I am tired. We have snow piles up to our shoulders and nowhere left to throw it. Another big snow after today, we are going to have to call in a plow to move back the piles so we can make more piles. I am sooooooooooooooo over all this snow, 3rd blast here for Ohio and more coming Friday.
Elsie, as I have said before, there is a reason I live in the South!
Pussy willow's blooming yesterday with the snow and cold.. wonder what that means
enough is enough right?we've been spared here in RI,if I could take some from you I would. <3 Diane
a break here for a while. Snow is melting some and only up to my knees right now. Was watering the ducks when they went roaming and had to chase them through the snow to get back into their pens. The snow was up to my knees and slow going. But I can actually see pavement and the driveway where it has been shoveled. Over by the water bib/hose for the animals the snow and ice has melted. I can see plants starting to green up already. Buds from the day lilies are coming out already. C'mon spring I am sooooooooo ready to see something other than white. It's blinding sometimes to drive in at times when the sun is just right. C'mon spring.......
Elsie in snowy Ohio still......... :tired:
For the Delaware Water Gap area (north PA/NJ) the forecast is for 8" to 10"!
We just had a bit of rain/sleet/snow, no heavy buildup.
What was fun was that last night when it turned to snow, it was coming down in clumps as big as baseballs! :bigsmile: Took a half-hour to make a 1" coating.
News writers are getting desperate for subjects as there was actually an article on why people run to the store for milk and eggs!!
Me, I get batteries and candles ... I always seem to have enough food and charcoal for the grill.
I think I'm getting restless cabin fever!!
Please tell us
Why do people run to the store for milk and eggs with the first threat of snow?
I sent my daughter at the beginning of the month to get milk when snow was on the way and Kroger's was out of milk.
Couldn't believe it myself.... out of milk...
There's always living in the South. ;)
I CAN believe your store ran out Elsie!
Why do people flock to stores for milk and eggs when a major storm hits?

Ledger Live for Friday February 5th, 2010 - Ledger Live with Brian Donohue.
On today's show: People are calling it a snow apocalypse, a "snowpocalypse" even. As the state braces itself for this year's first major snow storm, Ledger Live wonders why it is a knee-jerk reaction for people to suddenly flood the local groceries and shopping areas to buy essentials like milk and eggs.

My girl friend makes egg nog:
We do not care if snows 15 inches/
So, survival instinct? Don't trust the Utilities? What else is there to do during a storm but eat?
All of the above?
We're past 12" and still counting!
The winds were high enough to cause my window blinds to actually stand out from the CLOSED window about 4" !!!
Ooops ... better put the storm window down, although a serious caulking chore is needed.
Lots of drifting, the porch has 1-2 feet, and I see birds lining up for a feeder refill!!
Four inches and counting.
This is the third snow this winter. First two inches in January, then three inches in February, now this. Will we get 5 inches in April?
I can actually see some grass right now and we are supposed to be up to 45 by this weekend.
We have your weather for Georgia and you have our weather for Ohio.
Sure you don't want to move north?
But at least the lakes will refill so no more water shortages in Atlanta.
Have you looked to see when the Almanac says the end of this will be for your area? It says March 22nd for here and I pray that its accurate!!
I have buttercups up but the oaks are still holding tight to old leaves.
All my girls started laying again last week. I am taking that as a good sign even if it is only in my head. :)
Are you still making your own laundry detergent yet? We are here and saving tons of money. Let us know if you are.
Nice to see you around.
My girls are laying also right on. Kinda nice.
Still doing it and still works great. That was our largest money saver last year and it made everything else look small in comparison.
How are you and yours doing?
We are doing just fine here.
Counting down the last year of the last child in high school.
she is doing great..
3 grand babies now and counting.
