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.

Sprinter?

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 🙂

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?

Spring is Quirky

Yesterday it was 63 degrees in Our Town.  Today…it’s snowing.

Buddy had the Roomie stop the car so he could get a selfie with the geese.  There were hundreds of them.  They are the black dots in the background.

They say there is a Nor’Easter coming our way on Tuesday.  Yesterday I wanted to put my shorts on and boom I’ve got to find my winter coat.

To occupy our time we played some Scrabble and SnapChat.  Lame I know but at least it’s Friday 🙂

Winter Storm Mars

Winter Storm Mars blew through our neighborhood.  It snowed a long time (over 24 hours) but amounted to very little.

It started out with some big snowflakes.  Bantley wasn’t having much of this snow business.  He prefers the comfort of a warm mug of grog and a toasty fire.

By this morning though the snow had gathered on the grassy areas and the trees.  It reminded Jeff the Clone of Narnia.  Very pretty.

Jimmy just wanted to have an Irish Coffee and call it a day but Eddie reminded him it was their turn to clean off the automobile.  Jimmy then went and made snow angels while Eddie and Jeff the Clone cleaned off the car.  Stupid drunken poet!

Mars was anything but out of this world.  We all gave it a 1 on the Snowmageddon Meter.

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!!!
