I know you're not going to believe this, but I actually enjoyed the weather this weekend!! :-) Especially yesterday! It was so sunny and nice! And things were melting....Wait! Okay, so the melting was a bit of an issue...Hubby was worried that all that snow and ice in our backyard was going to break down our patio door and try to sneak inside! :-))
We kept hearing little crashes outside the window every once in a while, all day long! And if you look close at the header photo you can see why...Remember, this is what this tree was looking like on Thursday.
All of the other ice, except for the piece hanging on after the wind redirected it, has melted off. This melting was happening all along the roof edge and everything also! As a matter of fact, there has been a whole lot of people in our surrounding towns that have had to evacuate their homes because of roofs caving in...or they were hearing the creaking of them about to cave in and thought they'd better head for safer accommodations!....I think that most of the roofs around here were made to hold about 5 to 8 inches of snow, but not 15!!
But just so you can see that we still are conducted business as usual around here, for the most part, I had hubby take some photos of the area..As you can see, snow hasn't ACTUALLY buried us...even though it feels like it sometimes! ^_^ This is a little Strip Mall near our house. (A Strip Mall is a bunch of stores connected to one another, side by side) See! We can still walk up the little sidewalks to get to the Supermarket...
...and there's hardly any snow where you have to park out in front of it..
You just have to dodge the snow banks around the gas station, and the Kentucky Fried Chicken place...And NOT go to the Kentucky Fried Chicken place early in the morning.....without gas. ^_^
But you can easily get to the yarn store!...
And the Dollar store...
....and isn't that all that counts anyway?!! ^_^
The main roads and stores are really good about making sure people don't hurt themselves trying to get to their establishments, but in your individual homes....you're on your own! ^_^ And around our home this is what we're dealing with!
Ice....and snow on top of ice!...YEAH!! I know you heard it before people!!! LOL
(The crocheted square rug is a reflection from INSIDE the house!) And all around the outside of the house is a wall of snow and ice, hugging the building like a monkey baby hanging on for dear life!
I know it's gonna let go soon. And when it does.....I'll STOP talking about it!!! ^_^ ... In the meantime, I amuse myself by saying: "Hey! At least it's not this bad!!" LOL..."Beep! Beep! Cars coming through!!!"
This, apparently, is Newfoundland! YIKES!! ^_^
Just When You Think...
Just when you think you've got it bad
you see someone that's worse!
You complain: "My aches and pains, Oh boy!",
but some folks need a nurse!
Just when the weather's got you mad
and the snow's too deep to run,
you see the melting everywhere...
You look! and there's the sun!
Just when you think I'll just move on,
and find something else to do,
there's another blog post about snow...
and another poem too! :-]
