Farookin’ Snow.

snowblower.jpgToday we paid for all the mild weather we have been receiving. The Northeast, including Jersey, was clobbered by a blizzard. It closed the airports and kept just about everyone at home. Hell, you know it’s bad when we didn’t open the Post Bar.

It didn’t stop snowing until after 3 o’clock, leaving behind about 20 inches of snow and drifts high enough to literally frost one’s stindeens.

I spent several hours of quality time with Mr. Snowblower and now, after a hot shower, I feel not unlike a dishrag. I believe that I will retire to a comfy chair and nod off read a bit.



  1. Stay warm, Jim – and go fix yourself a hot toddy!

  2. Ahh, Condo living. I stood in the window with a hot cup of coffee watching the crew plow, shovel and treat my driveway and sidewalks.

    Simple wonnerful!

  3. Twenty inches? In NJ? We had six- to eight-inches here in Cumberland County. The streets are cleared and my wife is at work. My employer gave us the day off. Hmmm . . .

  4. Bob,

    Actually it probably was more than twenty inches at the House by the Parkway. A town that is a few miles from me got 27″. On my way to work, I could see that places that often get more snow than we do, got less this time.

    I guess it was our turn in the barrel.

  5. I do feel for you. Old sarge and I had headed out Friday night for a VF*nW Conference down in Southern Illinois ( a treat for us up north in God’s Country )where we got completely snowed in by the storm that tracked out to you.

  6. We only got 12-15 inches… that’s the 5th time this year. But it makes me feel good that we didn’t get the worst of it this time *grin*

  7. Twenty inches is “chust a dusting” where I’m from. Snowblowers are for the owners of Stately Homes (where the Help operate them), persons w congestive heart disease, and those who wear womens’ undah-wayuh. I prefer Lane Bryant.

  8. It was a balmy 50 degrees here in southeast Alaska yesterday. Guess it’s your turn!

  9. That’s why I moved from NJ to Arizona in 95. Just couldn’t take anymore all the shoveling, 3 hour drives to and from work, putting on and taking off all those darn clothes, and being at the mercy of the soccer moms who thought because they had 4 wheel drive they could speed on ice, and all the other drivers who hadn’t a clue how to drive in ice and snow. Yikes. It’s about 70 degrees where I am (southeast Az)right now, and it’ll be going down to 36 tonight. It’ll be colder next week, 50’s during the day and low 20’s at night. I love it here.

  10. I so wish that storm had hit us. We haven’t had a good snowstorm here at all this year.
