Afternoon all,just heard the plow go by at 13* and partly cloudy.

 

Barely saw the top of it’s cab, over the snowbanks. Which suggests we may be getting flurry action later.

 

Enjoy your Valentine’s Day with your significant others.

Good morning to everyone on this Valentines Day on the Front Porch! Valentine's Day, also called Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated annually on February 14. Originating as a Western Christian feast day honoring one or two early saints named Valentinus, Valentine's Day is recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and romantic love in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.

@catwoman500 

 

If a relative black thumb such as me can keep an Amarylis blossoming since 1988 as  Christmas house warming gift , perhaps you could give it a try.

 

Easier than bouquet’s and the gift that keeps giving, just stick in fresh bigger pot every 20 years or so, high in Vermiculite for water retention in soil.

 

Yeah, it used to be a brighter red, than it’s present orange but, still a little color when snow bound lifts the spirits.

 

The joy of fogey-ism, keeps on giving , Need to finish my shoveling of 18” or 45.72 cm of snow.

We have to do what, we need to do for health of our dogs.

 

And on that cheery note, need to shovel out ms. Chelli’s pen , unless I miss my guess 5’ out there.

 

My going over 8’ fence won’t happen, Her run won’t be clear until Spring but, 5’x 10’ might happen today or tomorrow.

 

300’ x 60’ fenced in yard to explore, not until Spring thaw.

Geez replying to myself, 19* cloudy and still snowing out.

 

If pesky weatherman is right will continue until 5 pm. Much as I’d love to give total snowfall amount that won’t happen. Even Hillbillyweatherman @ YouTube. was wrong. Fair warning he cusses, like most New Englanders this morning.

 

Seem to be trapped, until neighbor get’s to digging or I go out the window.🤣

 

Picture of my view, to neighbor’s porch is from inside, where I’m stuck. Snowbanks by the kindness of pesky plowdriver.

 

If I don’t escape today there’s always tomorrow.

Time for roof shed off steel roof sounds like 18” or small reindeer.

 

*edit- top step to my porch is 12”

18” of powder to storm door, got out time to dig out, after Caffeine.

I feel almost guilty, its a beautiful sunny day in NW Georgia, about 50 degrees right now.  But summer is coming and the Porchers up north will enjoy it much more than  we will down here.   Deer flies and skeeters, no see ums and those 90 degree temps Woman Mad

 

Daisy being wached every time she goes near a food bowl.  The other dogs wondering why there is no food laid out.  It is hard enough to put one's  self on a diet much less a little dog!  @Frozenoem   I am so embarrassed by her weight that I am loath to go to vet unless necessary.  I will be watchful but it is not easy, given I have so little time to spare.

Let’s put it this way, in proper Madea character speak vs. as written.

It’s afternoon 18* clouds are coming in, and with it SNOW tonight.

 

Buckle up to all on Eastern seaboard, looks like fun in store for us.

 

I’m still set for being hammered with powder as long as it remains cold.

 

Awaiting my mug of coffee, no handle and 36-glorious ounces, yes, I have a problem jiva packs of French Vanilla.

Good morning to everyone on the Front Porch! Here we go again with a  forecast of up to 8" of snow by tomorrow night. Most of it will be overnight tonight!

So much for the grond hogs forecasting weather so far! I did get the bird feeders refilled. We have from 3 to 4 pairs of cardinals every Winter's. Photos below are not mine.
