So, what do you do on a snowy day like we had on Saturday? The weather forecasters said we would get light snow. Perhaps 1-3 inches. The National Weather Service in Grey Maine said 3-5. No one predicted the hard, at time blizzard like conditions that found me asking myself, why on earth I live this far north?
Nor did anyone predict the 20 car accident on the highway near my home. At least, thankfully, no one was hurt.
I admit that it was very pretty to watch it today. Hubby helped me and we made clam chowder from scratch. That’s New England Clam Chowder, all creamy and nice!
About the time that I set the chowder on the back burner to slowly cook, Hubby went outside to use the snow blower. I knelt in front of the hearth and laid a lovely fire. I have to brag a little in my ability to make a fire that not only catches quickly, but burns nicely and evenly!
This talent stems back to the early days of living in the house. The heat was only under the basement floor to begin with, and first one up in the morning had to make a fire to warm the house. I was always up first, and so I wanted that fire going strong fast and throwing a lot of heat!
Anneliese is better today. The pain medication seems to really be helping her. I have had her out in the snow and she’s done just fine. Her medication is just a miraculous drug!
I just heard we may have more snow tomorrow. I’m simply not going to believe any of it!
I sure need a vacation to some place hot and dry right now! I’m really not enjoying the snowfall.
