How did they come up with these storm names, anyway? I am not sure the winter storm naming is really going to catch on, though, as only the Weather Channel seems to be calling it by name.
We woke up to snow, but not as much as we thought we might, although it was still snowing. There was maybe 6 inches by morning.
I made up breakfast to warm up before shoveling.
We had a delivery coming for John’s business today, so we had to get the driveway cleared out, even though it was still snowing. It wasn’t so bad shoveling with our new driveway. The snow came off easily without the shovel getting stuck in the pits and cracks and tearing up chunks like our old driveway did the past few years. Have I ever mentioned how much I love our new driveway??
I got really hungry after that workout, so I had the pear that was scheduled for lunch when I got back in.
Work was busy, but only because it was leftover stuff from yesterday. I am sure there were a lot of cancelled appointments from the weather. Lunch break. 1-minute muffin topped with peanut flour and jam.
Then it just kept snowing, and snowing and snowing. All day long!
I had to fortify myself with latte before thinking of doing more shoveling.
We finally went back out to shovel near 4:00 even though it was still snowing because we didn’t want to shovel after dark.
Our bobsled chute is in its infancy, but a good start for the year
My garden is all nestled in now. The garden path is now closed, although the mail carrier often tromps through it anyway.
I took a tape measure out to the middle of the front yard to measure the snow.
11 inches! I bet we will have a full foot by the time it is done. Welcome to the North Country.
That was some good exercise for the day, I tell you. Then inside and finished up work. This is one of those times when I am extra, extra, extra glad I work from home.
My eating has been back on track after Christmas. I had cookie overload and have not eaten one since Christmas. We bundled them up into the freezer except for the ones John wanted to nibble on. So, don’t be surprised if you see a Christmas cookie from time to time in January! They are relegated back to treat status and not stuff-my-face status.
Dinner was ham on top of a potato with laughing cow cheese. We have a lot of ham leftover and are going to have to freeze some of that before I get too tired of it. Right now it still tastes yummy.
We are settled in for the night. I have a new heated throw blanket that John got me because of my complaining about how cold I have been. Pixie has decided that she really likes it as well.
I thought it was hard to keep her off my lap before when I am working and this just make it 10 times worse LOL.
I am off to get my snack and get back under this blanket. I am having these nuts.
They have a very subtle flavor, but tasty.
Hope you all aren’t having to dig out too much from any snow!
