Then The Snows Came…

The Roomie was having a helava couple of days.  First there was a Covid Scare.  All Negative, thank you! 

Then the Snows came.  Well, snow, freezing rain, a frozen mush from the sky.  Not so much fun there.

It was beautiful and pretty.  But it was also very wet, slushy and dangerous.  Also very heavy to lift! 

The Roomie had the day off to dig out which was amazing.  Because lifting that heavy stuff kind of stunk. 

Gritty, who is from the Planet Philly Dilly, loved it all.  He’s very weird like that, lol.  We all liked the first official snow (we’ve had squalls).  Since we received only about 12 inches of snow all last winter, getting it all at once was okay.  Not looking for too much more but we are sure Mother Nature has the only say, lol.

Keep warm peeps!

Winter Storm Quiana

Winter Storm Quiana dropped about 3″ on our part of town.

It was really pretty and a feathery type of snow.  Easy to shovel.

We watched The Roomies shovel.  We didn’t help…just watched, lol.

When you are only 2″ tall the 3″ of snow can be a little dice.  Eddie said he was too cold for this fracking stuff.

The only one really prepared for the snow was RBG.  It’s because she’s super brilliant.

Winter Storm Petra

Well Winter Storm Petra blew into town this week.  The Roomies got out early from work.  They said it would have been cooler if were an actual snow day, lol.

We got about 3″ before it turned to freezing rain and then rain.

The Roomie was leaving for the day and then realized she forgot something.  She turned around and took this photo.  We all got a laugh.

We all survived and contrary to popular belief…no one had french toast, HA HA HA!

Avery Was Stupid and Messy

We wanted to play in the snow but it took 4 hours to get home from work so that didn’t happen.

Then we had to go pick up The Roomie’s wife from work so we took some pictures to pass the time.

It was very cold and wet.  Let’s just say Avery wasn’t fun like a Winter Storm is supposed to be.

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!

Let It Snow!

It snowed this weekend in our town.  It was beautiful and required very little shoveling, which the Roomie loved most of all, lol.  I enjoyed it and I’m so rocking this Christmas hat…HO, ho, HO!!

It gives us all hope that it will be a White Christmas like Bing Crosby sings about.

Eddie likes to sing his version of White Christmas but substituting White for Pantless.  Yes, he is a very odd fellow.

Wentz enjoyed the snow but didn’t enjoy tearing his ACL in yesterday’s game.  Get well soon buddy!

Oh…don’t get me started on these guys.  Seriously the bickering is annoying but then it snowed and Heat got all crazy.  It’s winter time dude…relax and chill out.  HA HA HA…see what I did there.  I”m one funny Troll!

What Happened to Juno?

The boys were asking me why they name storms?  Got me.

Arvid digs the snow.  Although, he was disappointed we didn’t get 2 ft. of snow as predicted 😦

SAM_0737 (400x300)

Geisel told me it reminded him of his life in the Black Forest.  Beautiful and wintery are two words he used to describe today.

George told me he’s more excited it’s National Chocolate Cake Day than the snow.  George always with the sweets that one!

Carl doesn’t care snow or no snow.  He’s out of the jar he was trapped in when we found him.  Freedom and fresh air are all that matter to him these days!

Happy St. Paddy’s Day!

Patches O’Hurley couldn’t wait to get this day started.  Doing the Irish Jig is his favorite dance so today he is ready to breakout his tap shoes and start Jigging!

IMG_9065 (400x300)

It snowed this morning but the boys feel certain it won’t hinder the festivities planned for later!  Come on people…go get your IRISH ON!!!

UPDATE:

Just in from the Irish Government…Americans Suck and can’t spell.  Being American Elves/Gnomes we are part of that suckage and have fixed the faux pas.  Happy St. Paddy’s Day…y’all!!!

Happy President’s Day

The gang hung out with some of the Former President’s to celebrate their day!

Jimmy and Eddie took the day to take some pictures and chat with the Old Dudes.

IMG_8440 (400x300)

Jimmy wasn’t clear as to why there isn’t a Famous Writer’s Day.  Eddie just rolled his eyes.

IMG_8446 (400x300)

OMG…is that a smile on Eddie’s face?  It’s probably going to snow!

IMG_8464 (400x300)

I think Eddie jinxed us, lol.  Bjorn is back on the beat these days.

IMG_8457 (400x300)

He’s looking rested these days.  Me and Thad hung out with Bjorn and his brother Boone yesterday.  It was a good time but we had a bit of Olympics rivalry going.

IMG_8449 (300x400)

Bjorn and Boone pulled out their colors so we did too.  Since Norway lost to Great Britain in Men’s Curling yesterday I thought I’d be nice to the poor guy.  He takes his Curling seriously!

We may be American Elves but in the end our hearts belong to Canada’s Women’s Curling team.  WE LOVE YOU JENNIFER!!!

His Name Was Pax

His name was Pax and he left a great swath of snow in his wake.  We had Pax the nor’easter swing through the region leaving behind 13″ of snow followed by sleet, rain and then an additional 4″ of snow.  I’m not a fan of snow like Homie.  I’m more a 40 degree or high kind of elf.

Hey I will make snow angels and play snow fort with the best of them but there comes a time in the winter months one just looks towards spring, lol.  I’m one of those Elves!

So if you are loving Pax I apologize for cramping your style 😉
