Alrighty, we survived the latest storms👍. Sanity may have briefly snapped as did most others up here.

 

Melt of snowpack to 3’, add back after dual storms, back to 4’ in kennel.

 

Today 35* and snowpack back to 3.5 feet. I don’t seem to be the only slightly insane New Englander, had a slight gripe session with VT and NH people.

 

We were assisting a Flatlander to get back on road, he seemed impatient in a ditch as we talked.

 

He did get out after rigging for a better pull, using trees for anchors. When offered assistance with tow truck 1 hour away accept it or gripe.

 

AWD cruise control and he was doing 70 on back road, one lane and ice. We were doing 30, and stayed on road.

 

Have lost 55 pounds this year, snow is weight loss formula. My back is still throbbing but, slowly feeling less cranky.

 

No more snow!

Good Morning, Front Porchers!

 

Well, the BIG snow the weatherman predicted yesterday and the day before, did NOT arrive. Yay!  We had some snow showers last night, but even that didn't last long.  And this morning we have overcast skies, but dry, barren ground.  So maybe just maybe we will be able to get through the weekend with nada snow.  I hope. I hope. I hope.

 

To those of you in the midst of the latest visitation of snow, just know that "This Too shall Pass."    Fingers crossed!

 

Hope blooms even in snow.

Let’s see 30* and cloudy, with snow starting soon.

 

Saturday has been delayed until Sunday, one day of mid 60’s.

 

Followed by snow storm on Monday.

 

Ayuh, we did get snow last night, looks like a bit. But, that is all.

@DaveMcK 

After 30 years+ in Maine I have the weirdness down pat.

 

Springtime snow through week , before it hits 60* on Saturday.

@LaDolceVita 

 

Can’t blame him pileup on turnpike, even tractor trailers.

 

When it snows 2WD gets hairy, same with 4WD. Southern Maine no snow tires, clean pavement. Here not so, much!

@Frozenoem   Bummer about specialist.  Probably not enough of his/her kind to fire him though.

27* and heavy wet snow falling, will continue until tomorrow, with perhaps another storm the next day.

 

Still waiting for normal reset of furnace, tried everything short of bleeding furnace Sunday.

 

@LaDolceVita 

 

Your symptoms with Mac sounded like loose cable, will keep your PM in the inbox. Makes it easier trying to diagnose problems.

 

Awful weather - nah! If June and still snowing that would be nasty.

Just the achy breaky bones of vertigo driving me up the walls.

 

Years past I’d be strapping on snowshoes and hiking, just not this year.

 

Aw Frak, and so, I wait for new appointment with specialist who just cancelled appointment.🤬🤣😡🤣

 

I’ll leave those Emoji’s up for interpretation, trust me it was colorful.

 

Now, need to scrounge up more firewood/kindling.At least it’s warm to me.

 

@catwoman500 

 

My word suggestions on iPhone are generally colorful, and non-AARP approved. Have to double-check all posts for wording vs bleeps.

 

Still prefer a real keyboard but, in a pinch texts work.
