Snurricane Schmurricane

And here we go again!  I wish the Northeast, especially the tri-state area of NY-NJ-CT, can get off of Mother Nature's radar for a bit.  Now we have Nemo heading for us in a direct hit.  And that rascally groundhog, he had better be hiding in his hut.

Every channel reporting news and weather has a different snowfall amount, anywhere from 2 inches to 30 inches, depending where you are.  We're expecting at least a foot, maybe 18 inches.  


Devastation from Superstorm Sandy on Staten Island, after a snowfall in November


Temps are above freezing right now.  I did my shopping yesterday, and should be OK.  I only worry about power outages and losing cable.  Ugh.

It's really about 34 and starting to turn to sleet.

I have plenty of things to keep me occupied the next few days, but nothing makes me want to run  out more than being forced to stay in!  Isn't it always that way?

Please keep those still suffering from Sandy, and all people who don't have a warm and safe place to stay tonight, in your prayers.

  1. Hey Barbara, you guys just can't get a break! We are supposed to get snow/ice this weekend too. I'll be close to home listening to the new Josh Groban album! Do you have yours yet? Take care!

  2. Oh, Dear Barbara, stay safe!! My friend Elaine lives in East Bethany, NY, near Buffalo...she said they even closed school today! (Must be unusual up there...down here they close school if we get a couple of inches and everything grinds to a halt! ;)
    Try to have a wonderful weekend, anyway!
    Hugs,
    Anne

  4. This is so crazy - I follow you, but this post did not show up on my blog! Anyway, you know that I am thinking about you and the birdies. Hope all of you are O.K.!

  5. Hi Barbara, thankfully you are prepared to stay indoors. I'm so sorry that your area has been picked on by Mother Nature!!! Keep safe and get lots of projects done. xo

  6. Nope, I missed it entirely and can honestly say that I never saw it. Hmmm... My sister and brother-in-law have told us about the people still living in tents or who still don't have power all these months later. I was shocked the first time I heard it. It doesn't even seem possible. I hope that good solutions are made for those still affected. Perhaps the best thing is for them to receive a payment of some sort and move on from those low places. Sigh. So many options and who knows what is best? Not I that's for sure. Have any thoughts on that?

  7. Hi Barbara,

    Your comment about the rascally groundhog is so funny. :-D I'm the same way about being stuck inside -- just really makes me want to get out. I, too, hope that Mother Nature will soon quit dumping bad weather on your area. Take care and stay safe and warm!

    XO,

  8. I do feel so bad for those still waiting for help after Sandy.
    Can you imagine living through this storm with no heat?
