Patricia’s Wisdom Will Return Shortly…

Power has been restored to our very slushy neck of the woods but I have been informed that it may be a week or more before our internet and cable are back up and running. So for now … may you enjoy the wonders of winter!

    Not really a break. Lots of cutting branches and shoveling. Enjoying the break in the storm today and trying to write ahead

    Hi Patricia!
    I’ve been watching the weather out your way – wow – that is quite the experience you’re having. And to compound it all, internet problems – you poor thing!!! Take a break, flow with it not against it. (spoken by a true Midwesterner) ha!
    Hugs

    Suzen,
    Wind is coming and going today, but my server is back and running…Rain is heavy and the snow is melting..
    I am trying to just flow and read some for “fun” books

    It is an interesting experience. We usually think folks are funny about the rain, because those are our most productive days – just get out and do….sunshine and we need to be outside and feeling our oats!

    I’m pleased to see you in the comment box. This must mean you have Internet again:~) I know this is silly, but as a Southerner, that picture makes me a bit envious.

    My Japanese Magnolia is now blooming! We’ve had very strange weather here — chilly cloudy days for weeks, with temps in the 50 to 60 degree range and then, out of the blue, bright sunny days with temperatures into the seventies. I think it’s hard for plants (and people) to know what season we’re in:~)

    Do be safe in all that snow!

    Sara,
    I am glad this kind of event only happens every 5 years or so, because then I can truly enjoy it and feel it….but our weather has been very strange this year…
    All my walks through December were fairly warm and dry and a pink camilia was in bloom on my route, daffodils where up about 6 inches…
    Then it started to rain and storm about 2 weeks ago. I think folks were complacent and thought we had just a week of winter in November. This storm caught many unaware and then there are still about 40k without power just in our county and many more in the next counties south of us…
    It has been an amazing experience.

    Hope you and Zip are snuggly warm, Patricia. Don’t overdo and be careful doing all the clean-up!

    Patricia Reply:

    Talon,
    Wind storm last night was amazing, just heard 50K are once again without power. County spent over a million dollars in clean up so far…Wow what an event

    My neighbor on the other side has huge branches on her deck…this morning…
    It was hard to sleep the wind and rain were so noisy

    We are snug and warm Thank you

    Hi Patricia,

    WOW! You did get a lot of snow. Last night I was talking to a relative of mine who lives west of you and he said they got over 20 inches and like you, are now just digging out. We got hit, but not as bad (about 9 inches). Yesterday we got another inch or two, but today it’s gone and the sun is out.

    Stay safe and warm. ((hugs))

    Barbara,
    Yes lots and lots of snow and ice – it was a big storm, but nearly all gone today and we had sunshine! The tree folks were here working for nearly 5 hours just to get my neighbor’s tree out of the road. There were actually about 6 crews, because our streets look like a whirlwind of downed trees. The main Blvd. through the city and Capital Campus are a huge mess.

    I am frustrated with my server problems…and then add to the power outages and wind…well, I am just going with the flow but feel a bit drained…I don’t think I will try to catch up – but just move forward.

    Yes, safe and warm….there were no deaths thank goodness, and nearly every one has power back today Whew!

    Jealous. We had one wimply little bit of snow and since then all rain. Love living vicariously though your photos.

    Yes the pictures are a good and warm way to enjoy the storms!
    My child who lives in Portland felt very cheated indeed as she loves this kind of weather…

    And this is only the start of winter – I wonder what will come next?
