Mt. Rainier and Lenticular Clouds - Dec. 2008 copyright: JMM

Staaaaahp!!!!


Got hammered with another blizzard on the night of the 15th.  They were still unable to really get a read on the track of the storm, other than the fact that the Cape and coast would take the brunt of it.  We got stuck in the 6"-12" range.  





This picture cracks me up.  Confirmed Bumbles sighting in Buzzards Bay. Or, Bumbles Bay.  OK that's not really BBay.  


It started snowing early in the afternoon, so we got the generator all ready and ran the extension cord into the house.  They were saying it'd be a very wet and icy storm with lots of hurricane force gusts, so a larger chance of power outages.  We lucked out though, because Bourne didn't end up getting as much as Sandwich did.  They got 15", we got about 6".  I didn't even have to shovel my way out of the house!  When I took Pepper out at 3:00 AM, it was already over, and we woke up at 7 to a gorgeous morning.

We were already plowed, but I still had to clean off the car and shovel around it.



 It really is pretty when it's fresh.







Later in the day, the light got otherworldly.

Especially with the snowy trees against the sky.


This was later in the afternoon.  I was hoping for a nice, red sunset but not that night.



So. Sick. Of snow.

  1. Screw that mess. I thought we got hit hard. Not compared to you. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who lifts their windshield wipers up! ha ha

    1. I had covered parking out in Washington (and it didn't snow in California) so having to clean off my car is new to me again. As I drove through my neighbourhood right before storms hit, I noticed everyone had their wiper blades up, so I got home and did it. It's brilliant. So much easier to clean off the windshield and the blades aren't frozen to the car.

    1. Yes..yes it is. Stay tuned for pics from my mom's house in Sandwich. They are buried over there. I even got stuck in my stepdaughter's driveway. She had to shovel and push me out. lol

  3. Wow, JoJo. I think I can do fine with watching your snow pix. It's mild here in Vancouver BC. I remember winters like that though. Great snow pix.

    1. What I fear is that we're gonna go from this right to hot and humid. That's what happened last year. We had virtually no spring. I feel like a prisoner in my house 4 months in winter and 4 months in summer.

  7. Well it's makes for beautiful photos. Right? We are enjoyed (for once in months) a stint of 40-60 degree days. Of course I have the stomach flu and can't enjoy it
