still waiting it out...

we have a little bit more to go, but we are doing good here so far...

the power is still on and we are in and warm...

we had a sun dog here this morning...
the most amazing thing...
a complete rainbow circle around the sun...
with two bright spots, one on each side...
google them...
it was the talk of facebook this morning...

quit a bit of drifting and roads are all closed and impassable...
still, there are those who are totally stupid and out in it anyway...

that's a railing...

the scene through the back door...

they pulled the plows early last night...
and tried a bit this morning...
but until the winds die down...
and the wind chills get out of the -40s...
they can't do any good...
then you have the ones out there trying to get around...
when everyone is being told to stay put...
stuck in these temps...
I am sure by the time someone is able to get to them...
it will be too late for some...
some states have made it illegal to travel...
roads are completely blocked with stranded cars and trucks...
both of my guys stayed home today...
everything was closed...
we have until about 8pm for the winds and then they should start to settle...
these photos were taken during a calm period this morning, but it didn't last long and soon it was blowing again...
by Wednesday we could be in the low 40s...
that's about zero!
but another snow coming with that...
this winter is going to go down in history, that's for sure...
stay in, stay warm...
and if you are in the 40s or above already...
nah, nah, nah, nah- I can't hear you!
bwahahahahahaha!

Us too last night. Five feet and more to come.

Your pictures are pretty out the window.

I want sunshine and 60 degrees tomorrow, but it doesn't look like I'll get it...I hear the Farmers Almanic said it would be a bad winter, and I will now believe them any forcast they give.

Oh Tete....I hope you stay warm!!!! I love your snow but one day would be enough for these Southern bones. It's cold here (to me) but you would probably think it was warm because we are still in double digits...lol. Take care and I hear that eating extra calories really warms you up....;)
