Oh, that is not going to make my boss very happy. They were supposed to fly out of BWI this morning for a week in AZ to visit relatives. I wonder if they will be able to get out before the next storm hits....

Hugs stay warm!
Glad you made it to MS safely! Enjoy these few days without snow!

Yikes! I wonder when my dh will be able to get home. Flights will be backed up from here to kingdom com and then more snow on Tuesday may make a Wednesday return kinda difficult. Does anyone know if they give priority to Military Persons when rescheduling flights?

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!
Do you live one post? We use to live in McArthur but I am not sure what you call it now. It was up by the high school. There was a great hill for sledding there.

I used to live in McArthur too (that was our second house), that is where Amanda and Tracy live now. I moved off post 2.5 years ago and out to Carroll County. My street is in the middle of a hill and there is a common area behind me, we are up quite a bit on a ridge so there is a good drop from our yard to the common area.

Morning all...Amanda - I am glad you guys are warm! I cant believe how long your power was out. Hopefully it came on during the night!
Everyone else stay warm and cozy.
I did absolutely nothing yesterday. I dont seem to have any energy but only took a 45 min nap. Sort of wandered around LOOKING at stuff to be done. Oh, wait, I am redeemed - I did some laundry, which is still in the dryer.
Dug out an area for Toby but didnt seem to think it big enough so he pooped on the patio. Guess I will dig a little more today. It's probably frozen solid and will be hard to dig. Dont even want to think about my car. Maybe its time for an assisted living place. hmmmmm. Nah...

Good morning! Sure hope everyone has their electric power restored by now. (and that no one else loses theirs!) Sure looks like it will be a long haul to get dug out of this one...

I'm SO glad that Amanda is with Stacy! I sure hope that Tracy and Cheri are okay...anyone else live on post that I'm forgetting? I can't imagine being without power in all of this!

I'm heading out into the frozen tundra to help DH shovel out...hope I don't fall into one of those 7 foot snow drift. I'll be lost until the spring thaw!

Good Morning Everyone! Rose, Toby looks like my dogs, very confused as to what to do, they just stand on the deck looking bewildered, like "where did ALL THAT come from"? LOL

Hope everyone's power gets restored today and we can all get somewhat dug out. I'll post a pic later of the "mountains" in my front yard! I'm sure hoping the gov decides to close state offices tomorrow if the side streets don't get plowed today.

Stay safe and warm everyone!

Has anyone talked to either of them to see if they have power? I can't imagine being without power all this time either!

we are mostly dug out, the contractor is outside now trying to put a dent in the roads. yesterday most of the neighbors kinda shoveled the road themselves. Adam our State trooper actually parked his patrol car across the road at the 7/11. the snow is up to the door knobs of those people who didn't dig out yesterday( Adam included..he works nights)

right now I have issues with the deck being hammered by falling icicles

Not sure what John will do today, I am letting him sleep til he wakes up as opposed to our normal: up by 9 am no matter what. If he wants to watch the game he will either go over to the Brass rail( no beer in the house left) or I will go hide downstairs and possibly do some decluttering in my craft area.

Stacy: how are the girls liking having BOYS over to play with?! and all those cats and dogs and extra adults.. woah!

Thanks Amanda for letting us know you are safe. Any word on Tracy and Cherie? This is some nasty stuff and I believe I hear a reporter say that Pawncetawny was seen in Glen Burnie diggin tunnels under a shed on Mapledale.......which later was reported to have caved in! Now do you believe me about the rat?

Did anyone else hear the news report stating to be sure to shovel your decks. The weight of all this snow can make them cave, especially as it starts to melt and get heavier.

One of my friends in Ho Co had a tree fall on her house yesterday too. They were lucky that only the top couple feet of the tree (a pine) hit and it didn't break any windows or do any damage.

One of our trees fell through our fence and hit our neighbor's deck. Not sure what the damage is yet. Will have to access when we can get over there... The neighbor came over to let us know.

Thanks for the info. Never thought of the weight of the snow on the deck. Guess I will get out there and do some shoveling. Glad everyone made it throught the storm ok. Sure hope Tracy and Cheri are ok. I can't imagine having no heat in all this.

Default I hate snow

Hello and good morning Ladies!

THANK YOU again Stacy and Family! Not only did they open their home to us but even drove over to pick us up. What great people they are. Thanks again Stacy! The cats stayed home and it made them like each other. So some good came of it. Keke had nothing to do with her before now the are sleeping together. Guess we need to think of a name for her.

Okay 3 hours to dig out the drive and another hour to dig out the sidewalk and yes I now HATE SNOW. I'm not sure why but our drive and sidewalk drift up really bad. Everyone else has like 2-3.5 feet we have 5.5-6feet. Just sucks!

Well, the stuff I shoveled yesterday is down to the pavement and drying. I threw some salt down and it is doing the trick rather nicely. I went out and widened the apron so I could actually get my car out. A guy that J has talked to down the street saw me and grabbed his shovel and in less then 5 minutes we had that tackled. I did part of the deck too. We are getting some major sun in the back so the deck was steaming where it was drying up. I went back out and just spread some of the snow around and figured I would let mother nature lend me a hand. I left my yard stick on the table, and the snow has shrunk 3" already, just means it is getting packed in heavier. Better to get to it sooner than later, it's just going to be more and more difficult to do anything. I think we are in good shape to go to our Super Bowl party this evening. Just what we need. Especially since we may not be in school all week, AAAGGGGHHHH!

Glad you guys are back home and have power now! And it usually doesn't take long for cats to start liking each other, especially when one is a baby! I'm glad they are buddies!

We were lucky as one of our neighbors has a plow on his truck and he made a couple passes around the neighborhood. But a lot of the people who tried to get up our street still got stuck. We are on a pretty steep hill.

hi everyone, I am still standing. I had to shovel all of the snow solo. Hubby is TDY until the 19th. Thankfully one of my guy neighbors felt pity and helped me clear the front of my car out. I feel like a tree fell on me.. ...... Let alone our house. Yes we do have a tree on our house & deck. Thankfully it just ripped the gutter and soffet on one corner and not our heat-pump. We still have all of the windows and power, so we're blessed. maybe tomorrow I'll clear part of the deck

Gotta scoot, I've got a clingy toddler on my lap3222222222

For some reason our street has been plowed quite a few times and is really in pretty good shape...not sure why THIS time is any from any other snow storm...we usually have to wait to be plowed...

HI All! I spent a very busy day putting up laundry LOL but it is done!!! woohooo! now to tackle the 3 large boxes of shoes next weekend and my garage!

The girls enjoyed having the boys over........I think Autumn's friend that was staying over got a bit jealous over the attention autumn was bestowing on Amanda's oldest son LOL

Not a problem at all, I am happy my house did not break you out in hives LOL I think her hubby was amazed at how everytime he turned around another kid appeared LOL Yeah about the cats - I bet that will get the little one going good having an adoptive mommy!!

I have not heard from Tracy or Cherie either, from what I can tell though base is pretty much dug out today and power seems restored everwhere.

We still have all of the windows and power, so we're blessed. maybe tomorrow I'll clear part of the deck

Gotta scoot, I've got a clingy toddler on my lap3222222222
Man that was a lot of snow to shovel by yourself. You will probably feel it tomorrow. Way to go!!!

We lost power Friday night....It just came back on at 2am this morning...Once the hubs wakes up, we will start bringing in the groceries from the snow. Am letting him sleep as long as he deems neccessary! After all the snow shoveling and not getting back from the ER until 12:45 this morning, he deserves to sleep...I fell on the ice and landed on my head last night at 8 - had been in the car charging the cell phones. CAT scan says mild concussion and a sinus infection. Glad everyone is warm, or getting there...

I hope you are feeling okay, at least you have power now to relax in. Smart about the groceries in the snow

All be very careful my hubs busted his arse walking the dog last night so it is VERY icy out there.

Oh, good grief...from AOL News:

"A combination of heavy snow and strong wind is likely in eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York City, Long Island, and perhaps southern New England from Tuesday night through Wednesday as the storm intensifies along the Eastern Seaboard.

More than a foot of wind-blown snow might accumulate Tuesday into Wednesday, likely snarling transit. As with the recent storm farther to the south, power outages will be possible.

If the storm intensifies a little sooner than Tuesday night, then heavy snow and wind will start a little earlier. In that scenario, heavy snow would extend southward into Delaware and northern Maryland, including Baltimore."

How much more can we take??

Cherie, glad you'r power is back on...hope you're okay after your fall!!

anybody want more bad news?

apparently back on January 10th my EFMP category was released only nobody bothered to tell me. I am Cat4.. which means. I AM NOT going to Okinawa.

Oh well, on the one hand it now means we know exactly what to expect as far as getting stuff done and he can leave early if he wants to.. don't have to find a renter for the house now.

so you ladies are stuck with me a while longer....

Cherie - welcome back. Hope you are feeling ok after your fall. Glad you got tothe ER and got treatment.
DM - Im sorry about your Cat4 and not being able to go w/your husband. I know you must be disappointed. Cant believe they never told you.
Hopefully Tues snow will keep to the north. My sister in Poughkeepsie, NY, didnt get any snow! I couldnt believe it. She'll get this one Im sure.
The sun's out now so maybe some will melt. It wont all be melted until June, especially if we get some more tomorrow. I cant imagine another 10 in on top of this.
Enjoy the day!

Cherie, I am glad you are okay. Gloria, you definitely win the prize for truly being snowed in! Larry just called to say our street is an ice slick and I should not even try to go out. My friends in Mass got nothing!
I need to remember that trick about using the snow as a fridge if the power goes out as it did go out for a few minutes this morning. I sure hope it doesn't do it again.
