Global Warming?

Life is full of surprises, right?

We got up this morning and found a good 6-8 inches of snow had fallen during the night. The snow was over the heads of the puppies as they tried to go out, and I had to get on my boots, hat, coat and gloves and shovel a small path for them.

After breakfast Hubby dutifully went out and using his ancient snowblower, cleared our 500 foot driveway. For those of you that don’t know, this drive is all uphill from our house, making it a driving challenge in the winter.

While he did this, I baked the cookies I’d been promising myself I would make, and I watched “It’s A Wonderful Life” while I did this.

And still, it snowed.

We’re now in a lull in the storm, and we have a total of 8-10 inches of snow so far. More is expected overnight.

Now this is getting truly weird, because we ordinarily do not have this much snow this early in the winter. Since we returned from our cruise at the end of November, we have had over 2 feet of snow!

So the next time someone is sitting next to me telling me that life is going to end in one great puddle of melting ice due to “Global Warming” I will simply laugh.

I’m sorry, but I have to, because I’m sitting here on top of a very high pile of snow in a cold and snowy New Hampshire!

  1. Maybe the snow just got lost on the way…. *giggles*

    We normally could have some snow over here, but we haven’t seen any yet other from a few snowflakes. Unusual warm has it been. It’s the past few days we’ve got chillier weather, so maybe it’s on it’s way soon.

  2. You know , every year I think snow would be nice and then I read you’re stories and I change my mind. It totally shuts this town down for 1″ of snow. Sometimes for days..

  3. Hello there!
    I have been such a busy/lazy commentor these days, although I still read all my favourite blogs I just don’t make the time for comments!
    But I am still reading and enjoying your blog, thank you for such good reads, who needs a book?? ha ha
    Have yourself a wonderful Christmas surrounded by your family and friends!
    Merry Christmas to you!

  4. Hi Mom,
    Sorry I had to rush off the phone–I was right–that was the doctor from Italy calling, so I was glad that I clicked over. Sorry, though, to have hung up so quickly!
    Hope you have a great day today! Will look forward to getting together!
    Love you,

  5. Hey: I envy you since we have no snow in Oslo, Norway yet – could you send some over for Christmas – we want a white one too you know 🙂

  6. Global warming ! you say it ! I realized it the whole summer here it rained and it was almost as cold as in winter I even had to put the heating on once in August !! I called it global freezing ! We never have a lot of snow here if we have any.
    My cats are quite good with the Christmas tree, only Rosie tries to catch some tinsel so I put it a little higher. We also have a far smaller tree and an artificial one. You shouldn’t have any troubles with your doggies if you put everything in height. Cats are more dangerous because they jump and usually I have flying cats here.
