We Survived the Blizzard of 2016

As promised, I sorted through the gazillion pictures I took over the weekend — what else was I supposed to do? — and selected a few to share with you. Okay, maybe more than a few. So I created a handy-dandy slideshow for you. With music.

Be sure to mute your speakers if you’re viewing on the sly instead of doing what you should be doing.

Here’s the slideshow. I hope you enjoy.

For the record, neighbors, I have no control over the image YouTube selects as the cover.

I look at it as a happy coincidence. 🙂

    You really did get hammered with snow. I’ve enjoyed seeing the pics on Facebook.

    Shall I tell you we actually had sunshine and blue sky yesterday? It was in the high 50’s and Brad was out washing the cars. I am sure we’ll pay for that with rain the rest of the week.

      Brandy, I actually enjoy a good blizzard every now and then. I’m glad to hear you got some nice weather, and maybe a clean car. I hope they both last!

    ” if you’re viewing on the sly instead of doing what you should be doing.”

    Nice collection of photos. I’m not sure what I should be doing so I didn’t mute my speakers…

      Well, Richard, you ARE retired, right? You get to do what you want, when you want. LOL. Or at least that’s how I envision retirement.

    A delightful slideshow, ToadMama.

    That, um, that snow overhang (snowverhang?) on the building with the “Union” sign… That could become a real unpleasant surprise to an unsuspecting window-shopper. It would be a wicked pleasure to see as long as no one got hurt—well, other than injuries to pride.

      Thanks, Ry. The snowverhang is dangerous stuff. I suspect it fell before any unfortunate folk could walk under it. That’s a very real danger in old towns where old buildings have metal roofs. That amount of snow falling would probably injure someone. I had to keep my dogs out of the front yard until all the snow came off of the roof for that very reason. Our porch roof is copper, and we don’t have those little thingys (snow birds, snow dogs, etc.) to arrest sliding.

    It’s been quite a while since we got a dump like that up here. I am very impressed how well equipped you are, the town as well. When I was a kid a usd to pray for storms like that. We could count on one or two a season. Not so much anymore.

      David, we don’t get big snows often. There are some years when we get more snow than in other years. We have a relatively long driveway, so we both felt that a snowblower would be a good investment. Especially since one of Mike’s co-workers was looking to sell a used one for a reasonable price. Shovels are a must. If we were younger, and poorer, we could just dig. The special doggie outerwear is important, too, because they really LOVE their walks and their feet are delicate. LOL.

    Quaint towns like yours look so beautiful in the snow. But, that is a LOT of snow! Happy digging!

      Lynne, I agree on both counts. 🙂
