the beast

of the east as it is known here has dropped his calling card.  Starting snowing last night (Wed), everything is closed and the entire country is on a red status warning.  No buses, trains, planes, nothing!  Emma visits us tomorrow with more snow, high gale winds and freezing temps.  It's crazy weather time.


the truck was backing down this steep driveway and was sliding a bit but he made it.

  1. Oh wow! I had no idea things were that bad there! I wouldn't mind a little snow once in a while, the key word being 'little'. Stay in, stay warm, stay safe.

  8. I am sorry you have the Beast visiting you. We are having unseasonably warm weather for us this time of year....mid 30s.
    Hunker down and stay warm and cozy. xo Diana

  9. If there wasn't any bad weather we would all have nothing to talk about! I saw the Irish snow on the news.... stay warm and stay safe!

  10. Hi Bill.

    Frost and snow can be beautiful, but also cause misery.

  13. It’s a wild beast & causing so much disruption! Best bet is to stay warm indoors!

  14. Oh my gosh that's horrible Bill! A wee bit of snow is all fine and lovely but this is too much of a good thing! Take care and stay safe and warm .

  15. Stay safe! I grew up where it snowed a lot and we had blizzards. I've lived in Florida since '86 and really miss the snow. But, it can be too much of a good thing at times.

  18. Keep warm and safe, Bill. Here in the UK we're up to our necks in snow.

    God bless.

  22. Wow, we are having the same weather lol! I think it may have been a 'red' day with no school if it wasn't the weekend. Stay warm!
