Default Oh my gosh

Isn't it scary, makes you hope you have a solid roof. Our neighbor in back has a flat roofed house, sits back behind all the houses on Bond Mill, not really visible from the street. I hope he doesn't have a cave in! It's pretty deep back there.

Wow - guess I havent been on here much. I was 3 pages behind. Glad everyone is safe and sound. Be careful with the shovelling, especially DHs. I havent even looked out front at my car (my condo is in the back). The snow is over Toby's head so I have to go shovel a spot in the grass off the patio, his new bathrm.
Take care everyone.

Oh, no! Sure hope our power stays on. We do have a generator (if we can get to it!).

Just checked the Howard County snow plow site. It says if the snow stops Sat afternoon as predicted, then the roads should be plowed out by Monday night or Tuesday afternoon...Hmmmmm. Just in time for the next batch! Yikes!

We have one of those temporary garages that sits right next to the one-car garage and it has now caved in. DH and DS had cleared the snow off it last night but didn't get out there soon enough today to prevent its collapse. I don't know whether they will be able to get it back up or have to trash it. At least it only houses DS's Nova (which is just in primer) and not DH's prized '72 wagon.

Here's a few pictures I took this morning...

The first is my front yard, the second is a chair we didn't get covered on the deck and the third is from my dining room window - the leyland cypress trees bending under the snow...

WOW! Beautiful but way more snow than we need or want and it's still coming down!

Everyone be careful, especially with the shoveling. As Jane said there's no hurry because there's no place to go. Everything is closed anyway. My hubby hasn't been out and he says he's not going out until it's over. If it takes us a few days to dig out oh well!

So everyone stay safe and warm.

Time to get dressed and stamp. Or maybe I'll just stamp!

Yeah, DH said he isn't going out till tomorrow, either...like you said- no place to go! I doubt we're in school next week...my bet is we go back to school on the 16th, following Presidents' Day...

Just take it easy shoveling...hope Amanda gets her power back soon! BRR!

I like your thinking Paula oooooo everyone just take it easy and stamp. If I can just keep Larry down..............if he shovels any more, it will be on the neighbors roof out back! Kathi, I am so sorry....are you with me on the Fat Rat yet?

OK, I know I'm weird, but I just got the wind taken out of my sails. I was out shoveling with the girls, and doing a pretty darn good job at it. My neighbor with a one car width driveway and 2 cars in it was messing with another neighbor's snow blower. Really, he could have been done in the time it took them to get it re-started. I was making really good progress when I hear him say, "Yeah, her husband is in Iraq so I'm going to need to go over there and help her." EXCUSE ME!!! So much wrong with that statement. So they came up and plowed my sidewalk and the apron where the snow plow junk was piled up. I was all excited to be able to say, "I am an Army Wife hear me Roar." for being able to do the drive by myself. Dang boys who think they need to "save helpless girls." I am grateful for the help, but I didn't need it. Grrrrrr.

Take the nice jesture for just what it was intended honey and be thankful they cared enough to send the very best, even when the very best is you! I am always glad to know people care even if it's for the wrong reasons......or the wrong thoughts!

Yes, Mary, I heard that too. This is of my neighbors car. It is a Jeep and sets up on a little hill.

We military wives are pretty independant, aren't we? I realize I can do a lot of things by myself because of being a military wife but I have a husband who thinks I shouldn't be able to do a thing. I guess sense he was gone he doesn't realize what I have always had to do.

It was nice of them to clear the snow tho

Gosh, hope everyone is ok. My friend had to shovel off her roof because the snow covered the pipe from her furnace and the emergency thingy turned the furnace off.

Jane, as much as I love animals I'm starting to learn toward your way of thinking! Here's pics of our deck and backyard just taken a couple of minutes ago. The birds are so happy that I filled the feeders yesterday!

Very early this morning when I tried to let the dogs out I opened the front door and smelled a burning smell and went and got dh. He said it was coming from our next door neighbors house, their pipe from their furnace comes out the side of their basement wall and it was buried in the snow. He was afraid it would cause carbon monoxide to build up in their house. I called over there at 6:45 to let them know so they could clear the snow away from the pipe. I'm just grateful that I was up that early to smell it and alert them, I don't know if their furnace would have shut off on it's own or not. Kinda scary! So everyone, check your furnace exhaust pipe wherever it is!

Sounds like the needs of the pets may have been a life saver! It is sort of scary that there is all this weight on the roofs......be safe.

Hi All! Yeah it appears I may be the only one on Meade with power....our section stayed on and they kept us pretty plowed so I would say we were one of the lucky ones.....Hubby and I shoveled last night so it is not too bad...we went out for a romp earlier and my big dog LOVES it but she is exhausted from walking in it.

Hope everyone stays warm and I will take some pics later and post!

Have you been in touch with Amanda at all? She is no heat since last night.

I feel so bad for them! Anyone who is without power is certainly welcome to come here but the problem is that no one can get out to go anywhere! Our street has not seen a plow yet and rightfully so, I know they are trying to get the main roads clear. I doubt that we will see a plow tomorrow even.

It says the same thing for our street! I think you're right Mary - there probably won't be any school next week!

if you live in AA county and want to check the level of service for your street, here's the link

John is out there doing the end of the driveway. for the most part those neighbors that are out/have been out have been shoveling the road too as the contractor is being a twit..he literally purposely buried a truck at the end of the street.

we too heard about the next storm early in the week.

at this point, I have a choice:

I can get rid of the cats and move to Okinawa possibly within a month or so after John gets there.

keep the cats and have to wait as long as six month to get their stuff taken care of

OR

stay put.

there is NO WAY in hell we can get everything that needs doing done with this week basically shot. and they want him to report early now as the ESG is getting underway.. which means he'd be leaving in as soon as 2 weeks instead of the first of March.

all that is done is my passport is here, but I still don't know what my EFMP category is, and until that happens I cannot proceed with anything. oh and did I mention that all the offices I need to get to are all in Anacostia or worse?

Default More snow pics

I knew there was a reason I hadn't taken down the lights on the porch holly. They are just a little bright spot on this dreary day.

Yep I keep trying to talk her into coming over....I think the hike to the road outside her loop may be the factor keeping her inside LOL

She said it has flickered so hopefully they get their power on soon...I may go drag her out if nothing by 7ish

Default Thanks Stacy

I tried to call her but she has her phone on message. I worry about the kids. The cats will curl up and be fine but the kids.......I sure hope they get power soon. Larry is outside again, trying to clear some more. It looks like it's letting up finally. I gotta say, it's way more than I expected. Gloria, your pictures are so pretty and I love the lights in the tree! That is pretty cool. I must say, the area seems to be dealing better with this storm than previously so I guess all the warnings have helped. Hugs and hope you are all warm. And again, thanks Stacy.

Snow stopped here about 3:00 and my yardstick on the back table reads 24". Between shoveling and then sledding with the girls I am pooped and I think I got my workout done for the WEEK. After going up and down the hill with the girls about 100 times to carry the sled back up to the top and giving them little boosts, I finally went into the garage and found some ropes with hooks on them on hubby's shelf. I attached one end to our fence post and now the neighborhood kids can pull the sleds and themselves up the hill a little easier. The hill is so steep there that it is hard to walk up in grass, in snow it was nearly impossible. I did have a little snow path with some foot holds so the girls could get up a bit easier, but once they got tired they needed more and more help. I'm pooped!

OK, now you all have me convinced that I am glad I live in the sticks. I just looked up our snow clearing plan for the county and they didn't have it listed by road, but it did state that they have it broken up into 50 sections so no one area gets missed AND that because of the way they have it broken down it will take no longer than 8 hours after the snow stops to be sure all roads are cleared. I'll take 8 hours over 3 days! Granted, the reasons they can do this is because we don't have any high ways and only a handful of state routs, and A LOT of farm land, but I'm still impressed!
