Digging Out

Yes photos are worth a thousand words. We have finally dug ourselves out of the Blizzard here in Chicago.

We had been away in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Taos, New Mexico enjoying 55 degree F. and sunny weather….only to cut our vacation short and hurry home so that we were not stuck in some hotel somewhere. Lots of the highways all across the USA were closed because of the snow storm or ice storms. Crazy. While it has been a lot of snow….nothing can compare to the flooding devastation in Australia and the horrible huge amounts of snow received on the East Coast of USA. I cannot complain.

My entire body aches from all the shoveling snow. But this was probably really good for me….great exercise!!! SMILE….

    pshaw! That’s nothing! lol! Just kidding. That’s a lot of snow! Our piles of snow on the side of the driveway are getting to that height — and going nowhere. And now there’s a nice icky coating of ice on top. We’re under threat of more snow/ice today — just a touch. And then another storm for Thursday perhaps? I’m so sick of it!

    Sorry your vacation got cut short. It was probably a smart move though.

    I think I’ll be grateful we have rain and strong winds, much easier to deal with than snow and ice
    Keep warm and safe

    We’re having lots of rain. All I know is that I truly miss the sun!

    The snow looks wonderful to me but I can’t imagine living in it.

    What a year for snow! We’ve been pretty lucky here .. except for the 48 hour power outage! But I can’t complain. Just rain today. We’ll see what the next storm brings!

    At least snow wouldn’t smell disgustingly foul (like flood waters)
    I worked in an industrial shed (NO power! So no cooling fans or A/con)
    for a week, sorting packing and labelling clothes and household goods for distribution for flood victims.
    Temperature was 90/92 deg Fah. Was a sure-fire method to lose some weight!
    Snow sounds real good to me at the moment. 🙂

    The snow looks wonderful from here! Though today is almost chilly …. a cool change from the south has moved tropical cyclone leftovers away so we are experiencing a lovely cool summer day.

    Never having lived in areas of extreme cold i cannot imagine wearing winter clothing … even in mid winter I wear only a light jacket when working in the gatrden.

    Heavy winter clothing is a requirement here, and tall boots! Sweaters, shawls and hats even inside the house. It was great seeing you Saturday and I’m happy we’re both dug out–wish I could have stayed longer. I went home to some tandem snow shoveling in the street, trying to keep it clear. Now it looks like the cold is coming. Stay warm, my friend!
