What the Boss Likes – Snowzilla, and a couple of pics from last summer

Update:  The aftermath.  Husband is digging out the bug.



Here I am sitting in the belly of Snowzilla, the current nor’easter battering the east coast of the US.   We have about 12 inches of snow (30.5 cm for you who have a sensible measurement system), and we still have around 10 hours of snow fall to go.  I’ll likely post more photos later to show how ridiculous it’s getting.


That’s a VW Beetle in the center.

The wind currently whipping the curtains we have on our patio.

Now, as enamored as I am with finally getting snow, this is a bit much.  🙂    I’m sure I’ll be longing for warm weather soon.  I took the following last summer, when coleuses had self-seeded and grew everywhere.  The low angle photos make me think of an alien forest.








That’s it for now.  I’ll be posting a food post since we’ve stocked in some nice supplies to occupy ourselves while the snow piles up outside.

  1. Do I dare say, “It looks pretty!” ??? 🙂

    It’s going to miss us, here in Snova Scotia. . .we got dumped on last winter. . . so it’s your turn!

    • Happily, it’s a light fluffy snow and isn’t collecting on branches or powerlines. We have plenty of candles, lanterns (I’m a bit of a pyro when it comes to lighting) and a gas stove, so we’re pretty well set. The folks down in the Carolinas got ice and they are worse off than us in some ways.

      I suspect that this would be a good skiing snow. I tried skiing once. Let’s just say I was more than inept at it.

  2. Oh, and it looks like good cross-country skiing snow… my favourite outdoor winter exercise especially late at night before the yokels get out and ruin the pristine landscapes and deep quiet with their infernal loud machinery.

      • Okay… take tomorrow off. On me.

        I mention the city because even a small amount can paralyze a city if it doesn’t have the equipment and materials to clear ice. So it’s not the quantity that matters from a bad storm but how well it can be handled. It sounds as if you’re prepared for a power outage. We are always prepared for a minimum of 72 hours and could stretch that to about a month if we had to. That means that such storms can be viewed with a certain amount of self-confidence… unless one lives too close to the water and then all bets are off.
