Nemo is here!

Well, we’ve been told that the Storm of the Century is happening today here in New England.  The prediction is that in our part of the state we will be getting from 18 to 24 inches of snow.  But if you look at the map, we may be in the 24+ area.  What can you do?  You might as well hunker down and enjoy the down time.  Mother Nature reigns supreme.


Clearly someone here is not concerned about the nefarious NEMO.


At 11:00 am, things weren't so bad.


At least we don't have to stand out in it all day like this birch tree.


I'll leave you with a pic the sunny side of my red tulips.
They don't give a hoot if it's snowing.

Beautiful photos but I imagine it will look a lot differently by the time Nemo rages through. Stay cozy and safe.

Just getting around to visit blog posts - now the day after the onslaught. Stay safe (and off the roads).

We've been keeping close tabs with our daughter over at Wellesley, who has the good fortune this year to have a cafeteria downstairs in her dorm - yeah! cause everything there is on a hill, loads of trees, and if anyone would slip and fall, or trip over a downed tree, it would be her.

As for the naming this storm 'Nemo' - I'm with Beth that every time it is mentioned on TV I hear Ellen Degeneres/ Dora chanting 'just keep swimming'- which is of little to no help in snow. Seriously!!

Thanks for your good wishes. At 11:00 am, I'd say we have about 2 feet on the ground and it's just starting to let up. We've not lost power. Very grateful for that, but it's not over yet.
