Winter Storm F (Fortis)

Well, it's over and yet it's just begun....................




Hubby guesses we had about 14" of snow.  Not counting the drifts.  I haven't seen the official tally yet but I'd say his is a pretty darn good guess.  Big thanks to grandson Jon for all his help at 3:30 in the morning. Everything is cleaned up for now, that is until the snow slides off the roof of the garage.  I did my share of shoveling too and now it's time to recuperate.

Enjoy your day!

    1. Hi Meera, I don't remember if I answered you or not but we waited until the snow ended at 3:30 because hubby had to go to work at 7 a.m. and grandson was going to bed because he works the night shift and gets home at 2 a.m. Just a matter of convenience. As for me, I couldn't sleep anyway because I never can sleep when something needs to be done or I am worried about something or someone. We were actually nice and warm with all that exercise. LOL Hope you have a great New Year.

    1. Surprisingly our streets are nice and clear today. I love how out town does clean up overnight and they haul the snow away so the downtown area looks like it never snowed at all.
      Wishing you a wonderful New Year too.

  7. A nice clean town is a great start to the New Year. It was a surprise reading about shoveling the snow at that time but then I read about the reason it made a lot of sense. I am a worry wart too. Hope 2017 will be a fabulous year for you and those you love.

  8. Bonjour chère amie,

    Mon dieu toute cette neige !!... Chez nous il est annoncé un grand froid inhabituel... En ce moment nous avons -6°C mais un grand ciel bleu et aucune neige.
    Que cette année soit à la hauteur de vos espérances. Pleine de petits et grands bonheurs à savourer chaque jour de l’année.

    Toute mon amitié.
    Bisous,

  10. Carol, I hope you are all safe and sound....and warm. After living in Florida for the last half of my life it is easy to forget the struggles of getting through a bad winter. We did live in Minot ND for a few years, and I was not a fan of blizzards! Happy New Year!
