Good morning. Guess what? Yup, it's been snowing all morning. I don't even want to look out my window to see how much of it there is. I'm just hoping it all stops pretty soon.
The plow truck came by yesterday morning again. I'm grateful that he had time to take care of us, but I hope not to have to see him again for a while. Sorry man. Nothing personal. When Joe got home from work, he got out the ladder and cleared the snow off the roof on the shed again, and the snow from the roofs over both porches.
As for the snow on the main roofs of the house, I may have to call in a professional roof-snow remover. There's just too much snow, and the roofs are just too high. I'll have to do some research on this today. I did manage to order us a roof rake from Amazon, but I'm afraid it won't be of any help to us on these main roofs.
Has anyone noticed a huge difference in their electric bills? I got some advertising in the Fall about rising electricity costs, and that I should be looking into alternate types of power. Well, I got busy with other things and paid not enough attention to this. For December, my electric bill was definitely higher, but I just got my January bill and almost choked over it. One month and almost $900. Now I definitely have to start researching alternative power sources. This is jut not very funny.
On a brighter note, I borrowed this delightful image from my daughter's web page. I think it pretty much shows how most New Englanders feel.
I have not been in much of a mood for crocheting lately, and sad to say I don't spend as much time on it as I should. I do have a photo of claret afghan that I started. This one will be for Jasmine. I've mostly been working on this and on the blue one for Kevin when I do take time to crochet.
That's all my news for this morning. Now I think I'll make me a fresh cup of hot coffee and do a bit of blog reading. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a splendid day.
Hugs, Edna B.
