Oh no! Not again…

Well, we didn’t break the record with that last storm, so mother nature decided to try again.  Just like with the storm a few days ago, the weather men kept raising their predictions for this storm every few hours, finally settling on an additional 10-20 inches of snow.  When this storm hit, it was much […]

The peanut thieves

The day after the storm Sandy and I went out to survey the new world around us.  It’s amazing how quiet and peaceful everything seems when it’s covered with a thick layer of snow.  It’s also very very bright and I forgot my sunglasses. Throughout the storm I’d periodically brave the weather and spend an […]

Well we shot for the record snowfall but didn’t quite make it.  Apparently we got 28″ in Ballston.  Here’s a list of how much snow local areas got. That’s close enough to the record for me.  For anyone who missed the storm… you still have a chance to own a piece of history. How much […]

Well… the snow came… and it came and it came and it came…  inches and then feet… I spent a good part of the afternoon shoveling and talking with my neighbors.  One good thing about the snow, is that I probably socialize more with my neighbors than at any other time of year.  Everyone’s out […]

The end is near…

For the past few days we’ve been receiving increasingly dire warnings of a monster snowstorm coming our way.  First they spoke of a foot of snow, then 16-24 inches, and this morning that’s increased to 20-30 inches.  Last night, on the news they compared the coming storm to the blizzard of ’83, where we got […]

Strange tracks

We had more snow today… when I was out shoveling I saw these strange tracks in the snow… reminds me of a backbone.  After studying them for a few minutes, I think I figured out what caused them.  Do you know?  Leave me a comment with your guess and we’ll see if it matches mine.

Blue and White

The next day was beautiful… very peaceful and quiet.  The storm was gone, the skies were blue, and the ground was covered with a blanket of white.  Up and down the street, our neighbors were out shoveling sidewalks and chatting to each other.    We went out again…. walking and enjoying the break from modern […]

Only an idiot…

With well over a foot of snow already and more coming down at a record pace, you’d have to be some sort of idiot to try and drive on the uncleared roads around our house.  So how was I going to convince Sandy that’s what we should do?  I needed a hook… something that I […]

where did all this stuff come from?

Wow!  I mean WOW!   Usually when they forecast a big snowstorm, we either get rain, or the real storm misses us and instead of a blanket of snow, our streets get covered with a blanket of salt and we spend the next six months tracking salt and sand into our houses. But beginning this […]
