    Still have power, cable, and interwebz, thank goodness.

    We have about 2 ft. of snow with drifts that go every which way and the wind is still blowing like billybedamn.  Last night, it was howling.  Sounded like a remake of The Shining, but without the "unusual" company.

    Our driveway is fairly long, so we moved all the vehicles as close to the street as is safe.  All we need do now, is about ten feet or so of shoveling. I say "we" advisedly, as this girl is not shoveling bugger all!  I will 'direct operations' and duck the snowballs that follow said directions. ;-)

    If you must shovel, be smart and spray the shovel with WD-40 before starting. While most of the snow was light, the heavier stuff is out there, too.

    Stay warm.  Stay safe.  Hug something!

    We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.

      The wind has been howling for far too long, hasn't it?

      Have fun directing the snow removal operations. :)
