Good morning. Well, the snow is coming starting today, and it's coming with a vengeance. It's bringing hurricane winds along with it. The weather man sounds scary this morning when he says that it could dump from two to four inches of snow an hour for twenty four hours non-stop. Now that is scary!! Right now, we are looking at possibly two to three feet of snow for our area.
As long as we have power, I'll be posting here. If I'm not here, then you can assume that we've lost our electric power and I'll be back as soon as the power returns. Personally, I would not be disappointed if the whole thing blew out to sea before it gets here. That's my wimpy side showing!
They are saying on the Weather Channel that by noon today, all traffic in New York City is to be off the roads; and in Boston, we may have as late as 5 pm to get off the roads and stay off for 24 hours. That's a great idea, but I'm sure there will be lots of folks ignoring these warnings. Why, I don't know, but they always do.
We have food, water, blankets, flashlights, a snow blower that might not be much of a help if there is too much snow, and a generator in case of a power outage. The only thing I haven't got so far is a plow to come in periodically to move some of the heavier snow out of the driveway. I'll try to figure that one out this morning.
Yesterday, I went looking at one of my backup drives to see if there was room on it for another backup, and I got side-tracked, naturally. Therefore I did not get to work on a second page for my blog. I will get to it, but right now there are more important things to attend to.
I thought I might see about getting another delivery of fuel oil to make sure the tank is full, but so far no one seems to be answering the oil company's phone. Maybe their lines are already down? Hmmm. Oh well, we have enough fuel for a while, but once the snow gets here it will be very difficult to get to the "fill" pipe.
As promised, here are the latest "word" photos. The word for Day 24 was "Aquatic" so I took a photo of Joe's fish. There is a pineapple house in the fishbowl, and the fish likes to stay inside the house a lot.
The word for Day 25 was "Flower" so I have a photo of daylilies from my garden. (Obviously taken several months ago. This being Monday, I thought the orange lilies most appropriate.
For today, Day 26, the word is "Towering", so I took a photo of our Amaryllis plant that is towering over the other plants on the plant table.
Beth sent in a photo for Day 19's word, "Water". She took this photo of the rain drops that have landed on the fence rail.
If anyone else wants to join in with the "Word" photos, please do. I'm getting into the habit of just shooting photos of everything and anything. You never know when one of the photos will match a Day word.
Now I must get busy and see about hiring us a snow plow. That's if there are any snow plows available. Most of them are probably all booked already. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a great day.
Hugs, Edna B.
