Winter Wonderland

Totally off topic, but wow!  Here in Massachusetts, we got slammed with snow over the weekend.  First, on Thursday, we got about 3 inches of the white stuff.  And it DIDN'T melt!!!   Then Saturday afternoon, it began to snow, snow, snow.  We were at the last horse show of the season and it was the first time I've ever heard the organist play "Let It Snow" during a show.  Eee-gads - it came down heavy!  Our usual 50 minute ride home from the show took 2 hours.  There were cars off the road everywhere.  The power went out a few hours later and as of now (Monday afternoon), it's still not on.  Fortunately, we have two big generators for our property so we're all set.  Others around us are not so lucky.  Lines at gas stations (those that are actually open) are loooooong.  Power lines are down everywhere.  The grocery store was on generator power, with about 50% of their lights off, food going bad fast.  What an odd situation here in New England.  Here's hoping you're in a warmer, less snow-infested place.

It's in the 40s today so hopefully the snow will melt soon.  Just in time for winter to start in earnest.
This is after Thursday's light snow.  Add 2 feet on top of this!
