The first major Nor’easter of the season arrived last night and raged on into today, ending around mid-day. Now according to meteorologists, the storm didn’t quite reach ‘blizzard status’ in our city but still managed to deliver a significant amount of the white stuff along with major wind gusts that knocked out power and caused other problems in many areas. Luckily, we have no issues to report other than the normal woes that come along with such a storm.
Earlier today I forced myself outside into the howling winds to snap some photos before gettin’ down to the business of snow removal (the things I do for this blog… 😉 )

I soon learned it was heavy, wet snow, the kind that weighs down all the branches. Good for snowballs, bad for shoveling!

A snowblower (and a man to run it) is a good thing to have… 😉

While the Audi sits snug in the garage (see first photo), the Jeep bears the brunt of the storm. No worries… my girl can take it! 🙂

I do have to admit it does make everyday things look oh-so-pretty!

Okay, I’ve had enough and my fingers are frozen. Definitely time for a steaming cup of cocoa! 🙂
