Fed up already!!! More snow!

ARGH!! I know you must have all heard about that Nor'easter making it's way up the eastern coast and into Canada as well. What a mess we had! Nothing like some of the stories of flooding I've heard, so we are grateful for that at least!

It started Sunday, snowed all night with ice rain in the morning along with winds from 50-80km/hr. We ran out of power at 8 and it only came back around 3. House was pretty cold so I packed up the dogs and went to my friend's house for some warmth and company. I had already used my fondue pot to make myself a morning cup of joe! LOL

Sammy and Ricky are ecstatic about all this snow of course and they do stay much cleaner than when they're walking through mud puddles, but still ..... enough already!!!

Here's a link to youtube where I have a video of the 'boys' playing in the snow. It was dark, so quality of lighting isn't so good, and it was just starting to snow.

Did any of you get hit with snow/ice/rain and all that fun stuff?

Not to rub it in, but I can't even remember the last time I saw ice or snow here.

Seriously though, I hope it ends for you soon. I can't imagine living where weather hits like that. Give me the occasional shaking ground any day.

I just viewed that video and a couple others of yours. It looks like the dogs really love the white fluffy stuff. Ricky is adorable in the "Playing with the Bottle II" video. He's a hoot.

Feeling your pain, we do not have snow but the city I live in just declared a state of emergency for flooding, I live so close to the merrimack river it scares me . We had the same thing happen last year and I only got a few inches of water in my basement, hopefully we will be o.k. this year. I know a lot of people in New England are feeling it. Try to stay warm and dry everyone.

We didn't have snow, but we did have tornados a few days ago! 3 in the midcities...which are heavily populated cities...only one person that I know of died though..we have good warning systems where we live. I had parents and everyone from up in New England calling to make sure I was alive! I just told them it was further south than what I was so they wouldn't worried..even though I spent 20 minutes hunkered down in the bathroom!

No snow on LI but plenty of rain. Thank goodness it doesn't flood where I live, but it does where I work. We were lucky though.

The poor dogs were stir crazy, so I let them out. Five minutes later, I didn't know which one to grab first. They were covered in mud. So my Mom grabbed one, and I got the other and in the bathtub they went. Then I had to get in the tub - it was the first time I had to bathe them together. I didn't need a bath, but I got one anyway Your video was great! I have to remember to charge my video camera

Okay, I am feeling a little sheepish because the other day Laurie wrote to me saying she is preparing for Nor-easter. Me in my brilliant little brain though, "oh, another type of Easter celebration!!" So, I told her that I hope her it goes well for her and hope that she has a great time!! Sheesh, now I know I better get up to speed with all these phrases. I feel like as if I had been in isolation that I had never heard that term before!! Now that I look back, I feel so silly Sorry Laurie

LOL Helen! I hadn't heard that term used more than once or twice, but it came during a weather report, so the context was easy to figure out. I think your response was pretty natural, especially with Easter having just been so close. (And it was funny, too!)

Helen, that is too funny, now every time we are getting ready for a nor-easter I'm sure I will remember this story and laugh.
