Winter Storm Quinn…We Survived

Winter Storm Quinn blew into town yesterday.  It was cold, messy and annoying.  It also had moments of fun too.

We all then took a nap 🙂



Winter Storms Polly and Quinn – Snomaggedon

Let’s all take time to welcome our new Lithuanian Troll Elsa.  Ellie is fun and wild and awesome all at once!  The Roomie was completely out of control with Ellie!

Winter Storm Polly knocked us for a loop on Friday!  It was just crazy cold, windy, rainy and snowy.  Too much weather all at once.

Mr. Nigel Murray said his cousins emailed him from the UK and they also have been having nasty weather.  Chipper just was looking for an adventure!

Bjorn told him the adventure was he could shovel out the Roomie’s car.  Yeah…he stopped smiling, lol.

He got some chopped wood from what appears to be from his cousin David’s Lumber company.  Well we are all preparing for round two with Winter Storm Quinn.  Wish us luck.

Training For Chopped

We’ve decided we would like to be Chopped Judges so we’ve been watching the show to see how it’s done.

The Little Chef is obsessed with the Food Network.  It’s what he does with The Roomie.  Alfie said that’s where he got the idea to “Beat Bobby Flay”, lol.  I’m just enjoying the tasty treats the Chefs are making.

The Little Chef thinks he could both Judge and Win Chopped.  I know he’s good because I’ve tasted his food but I’m not sure about winning everything, lol.

Alfie always loves a good prank.  This one was he whipped up a tasty Gold Fish Cracker.  We all laughed.  It was tasty 🙂

Oh Those Crazy Olympics

We are all into the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.  It’s so much fun since we are from all over the world.

Mr. Nigel Murray being British of course was rooting for his fellow Brits in Curling.  We all love Curling!

Mr. Nigel Murray’s team wasn’t victorious but we all cheered for them.  It was a good match.

Homie was sad that Mr. Nigel Murray was sad.   In the end USA (Homie’s home team) won the day and moved forward 🙂

Mick has been staying up very late to watch these matches.  Hockey, Bobsledding or Curling he’s out there chanting USA USA USA

It’s been a wild ride but USA Men’s Curling is moving on to the medal round!  Congratulations Boys!


Thanks to the Hoax (not) that is climate change our winter weather patterns aren’t exactly average.

So first it was 59 degrees.  We had a little rain.

Then it clear up.  It was 40 degrees and sunny.  We all got outside because the weather folks said it was going to snow.

The sky was blue and the sun shining high in the sky, gorgeous!

It started snowing just a few hours later.  It was a beautiful snow.  It clung to the trees and grass to paint such a wonderful winter landscape!

Bjorn was loving the snow.  We’ve had a lot of rain but not so heavy on the snow.  Being Norwegian and loving the Winter Olympics he is loving this little taste of the season 🙂
