We did enjoy it, Kayelle! Not sure if Addie, Andy or jennyema got to see it though. Boston, along with other towns near the coast, are getting "lake effect" snow. Or, in this case, ocean effect. Having spent the first 50 winters of my life living in Greater Cleveland, cloudy winters and snowy days seem pretty normal to me. Since moving here, central MA seems to be sunny more winter days than not. Until the last couple of years. Now we seem to have more winter clouds than a decade ago.

We have clouds now, There is a light snow falling outside. Shouldn't be more than an inch overnight. *phew*

The only time I've been really cold was on a winter trip to Yellowstone. It got down to -26 during that two weeks in winter wonderland but the sun was bright and beautiful every single day. There's no way this California girl could have taken that without the SUN. The day we flew home we gained 100 degrees.
I wish sun for all of you!!!

I spent a few months in Montana in the winter, and boy was it cold, snowbound and in the negatives. Also wishing those of you in the eastern part of the country an early spring.

Except for you, Princess, hoping you get your cold for a while.

I'll be wishing I was somewhere else come summer, when the temps here are around 110+F.

What is your weather like right now?

We are again at 3F and schools are again delayed by 2 hours tomorrow due to nasty windchill here along the river. Groundhog Day movie repeat?

Yikes, Dawg!

Take care, all of you in the snowy and freezing areas.

Sweater weather in the morning, short sleeve in the afternoon. Loving it.

More snow last night. A girl was walking by a building and five feet of snow slid off a roof and buried her. Only her head was sticking out. It also buried a man completely. She is now in the hospital with neck injuries.

This is not a fun winter. Yesterday, a car riding behind a large trailer truck had some of the snow come off of the truck and broke his windshield. In this state it is the LAW that you are required to remove the snow on the roof of your car or vehicle before driving. A nice fine for the truck driver.

Our transit system is broken down and old. It cannot function in this kind of snowfall. So the cab industry is doing a land office business. The Pirate has been driving for a cab for the past month. He is exhausted. Been working 12 or more hours every day around the clock. Some days he doesn't even have time to grab a sandwich to eat in the cab. So he calls me to have something ready for him to eat when he come homes. Gulps it down and off to sleep for a few hours. Back in the cab.

8 above zero, snowing and blustery!

If this was Christmas week I would be humming Christmas carols, today it's just snow!
