I was watching the Toronto news this morning and they were predicting your area could expect up to a foot or so. The storm is just missing us...for a change.

The last three have missed my area, RJ, but not this time.
Oh well. I had a few weeks off of any major shoveling anyway.

Just yesterday when I was making "the rounds" I saw two cranes in peoples' yards removing trees. I've seen more tree guys out this winter than any other.

It's winter in New England, it's snowing, and this is news? I guess it's easy for me to say "deal with it" when I don't HAVE to go anywhere. I do remember my attitude being a bit different when I had to drive in this stuff to and from work every day. Here is the view from my sunroom door. The dark blob in the lower center-left of the picture is a huge rock - with last night's snowfall on top. Meh, 10" or so. I've seen worse.

School was cancelled here again, a very rare thing. Thankfully I don't have to work into June! It's 8F here along the river.

A huge rock? You live in Mass, we knew what it was

I didn't take any afternoon pics, but I took one this morning looking out the window from work.

I said, What the heck is this fool doing out walking in this? I think he was one of the guys re-tying vines yesterday and they decided to call it quits today.

Didn't notice "this guy" until I enlarged the image. What, you live next to a vineyard? Do they need another taster?
