October Blizzard!


What's wrong with the picture above? This isn't an evergreen tree; it's a maple tree with green leaves! We just had 18" of snow in October. Crazy. We just got our power back after 3 days, and Internet connection!



Would you like to come over for some tea on the patio? Here, let me brush off a chair for you. For those of us who are always too hot, this actually looks inviting.

I cannot view the photos either, but I sure am curious to see them.

All I see is a white polar bear in the middle of a blizzard, which is to say, I don't see the photo. I'm in NH, and we got about 14" of snow, so I feel your pain.

Yikes, sorry about that. I re-entered the photos and it seems to be working now.

WOW! that is a lot of snow! I hope you don't have flooding issues when all that melts. Three days without power? What did you do for heat?
I guess I shouldn't tell you that we have had some beautiful weather here in Ohio (finally!)the last few of days. At noon today it is 54 degrees and the sun is shinning. I am not looking forward to the white stuff!

Your photos are beautiful. I've never personally seen anything like that much snow. Here, in southern California, we've got heavy, hot, dry winds. Our fire season is starting a little late. I hope you're able to stay warm! Three days in that without power? Oh my!

wow that's a lot of snow! Is warm over here and I'm enjoying the spring weather before it gets too hot.

You need a treadle machine for your next power outage!!

Sorry to tell you this, but I'm working outside in shorts here today.

It's so beautiful when everything is covered in white. The lack of heat and internet.. I bet that's not so beautiful..

Don't worry; we had heat! My smart husband installed a generator so we had heat, showers, microwave etc. No Internet, but we managed fine.

That is a lot of snow! I guess you had a chance to "cool your heals" and spend some time in your studio!

I'm down in Long Beach NY and we were just on the temperature line of 35-36 degrees last Saturday - WOW your pictures are amazing!

I do like snow, but it's too early for it now. Do you believe that we had about 18 degrees Celsius at the end of October!!! It should been about 6-7 now.Strange weather.
