  •  Happy Birthday Little Eva, Elizabeth & gramps! (9+ / 0-)

    Hopefully you've amassed a good supply of birthday cake to celebrate (not to mention other essentials).  I don't think you're going to be going outside anytime soon.

    Take care of yourself this weekend!

    •  I'll be out there (8+ / 0-)

      shoveling this afternoon and tonight so I can salt and not have to life 2 feet of snow all at once. Once the worst of it stops I'll enjoy walking around town to explore our winter wonderland!

      Two years ago we had a fair amount of snow. Multiple big storms. Last year hardly anything and this year only a couple of dustings until this one. Looks like we're going to catch up in a big way.

    •  Yes, yes! Happy Birthday Little Eva, Elizabeth (5+ / 0-)

      and Grandpa too!

      Once again your diary delights.
      You have an incredible talent for research and pulling it all together in ways that are so pleasing.

      From Charles' unfortunate end,the fates of various women and children, uncovering Mr. Emerson's apparent native wisdom which led him to a singularly successful career to the mystery of Charla, today's is another compelling read.

      We'll be watching the storm.  Stay safe!

        I just went out to shovel and clear the car about an hour/hour and a half ago. Spread some salt. Doesn't matter, we've had another three inches since. When it gets to six inches or so, I'll shovel again so it won't be as bad in the morning. Fun, fun, fun.

        Actually, other than the shoveling I love it. We have a fire going and it will be a joy to walk around in a pristine landscape for a couple of days without all the cars. I was in Brooklyn when the blizzard hit just after Christmas 2010. Car was totally blocked in and covered on the street for about 5 days. But walking the streets was blissful.
