4 Nor’Easters – Say Hello To Toby

There has been a lot of snow this winter…now spring!

Toby was the latest storm and he dropped about 10″ of snow on us yesterday.

It’s still fun to go out and play in it.

Home and Chipper were becoming fast friends.  Homie’s been a little camera-shy recently but we did get a snap of him.  Just look at that smile!

Freezie was on Facebook gloating about besting his brother again.  I’d say is gloating wasn’t working because it’s pretty warm outside right now so Heat is fighting back!  Spring needs some help these days so I’m team Heat!

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.

Stella….

A Nor’Easter came to Our Town yesterday.  Her name was Stella and she was messy and heavy.  She made snow not fun 😦

Buddy and the Roomie were ecstatic that our new Neighbor snow blew our front walkway.  Thumbs up from the big guy!

Shelly and Lenny  were a little bummed that the snow was so wet and heavy that sledding was a bummer.  They tried to build a snowman but it was like rolling the snow through quick-drying cement :(**

Stella could have been worse.  We ended up with about 4″ with drifted snow which turned to ice when as the day got colder.  This morning we woke up to 19 degrees with real-feel temps of 9 degrees.  This with Spring just days away.  Weird, right?

Niko Came To Town

We had a Nor’Easter come through our part of the globe yesterday.  It could have been a lot worse than the 5.5″ we received.  Niko was very blustery and annoying but his punch was a little on the weak side…thank goodness.

We had fun playing in the snow but it was back to business.  Today it was still super cold outside but tomorrow they are calling for high 47’s.  YAY!

Oh Yay…It Snowed

So in our neighborhood we got 22.4″ of snow from Jonas.  I still think it’s stupid they name the storms.  Now nobody will want a friend named Jonas because that a-hole dropped 2-3′ of snow on the east coast!

I think that Homie needs a smaller shovel.  It do give him props for giving it a try though 😉

I was Bjorn of the mountain.  Really there were mountains of snow everywhere after the plows came through.  Crazy stuff this Nor’easter business.

We decided to have some fun sliding down the hill.  It would be sledding if someone remembered to bring the sled.  I’m not pointing fingers but you’ll recognize him from his thumbs up…BUDDY!

Homie says he enjoys snow so much more now than when he was a garden gnome/elf.  He’s a big fan of keeping dry and being warm.  We all survived and the next storm to come our way has been changed to a passing rain shower so no more shoveling for a bit.  YAY!!!

April Showers Brings…Flooding

Early this morning we were all awoken by the sound of a torrential downpour of rain.  It was still dark and very miserable outside.  All a part of Spring.

This afternoon Mick and I went down the Crick to see what it looked like all swollen.

Yes it is weird to say Crick when it is a Creek but when in Roman…yada, yada, yada.

It finally stopped raining and the “CRICK” looked kind of cool.  It also made me glad that I gave up living in the Forest.  It’s wet and mossy here.

The trees are starting to bloom which is a good sign that Shady Days are coming closer and closer.

The Roomie loves the rain.  Probably because she’s never had to live outside after a rain.  It’s damp.  ‘Nuff said!
