Between the Storms


I left work an hour and a half early yesterday, not quite slinking off. I made sure the Powers That Be knew I was reachable by cell phone, etc. but the snow was falling fast, and in that sifting way that means it is going to snow for a long time and that it is cold. (If you live where it snows, you know what I mean). The ride home took two hours (usually an hour and twenty minutes) and every car that went by in the opposite lane boiled up a blinding cloud of snow (I guess I was doing the same to them). I was coiled like a spring when I finally made it to the driveway.

Mom (in Florida) fowarded me an email today titled, "Why I live in Florida." It included this amusing bit of video (Youtube embedding won't work so you have to click, sorry.)

Yes, we of the north have hard life. (And a sense of humor, Thank You Know Who). But we have our rewards too. Another storm is closing in as I blog, but we got a little sun this afternoon. I ran outside with the little happy snappy to show you all (and Mom) "Why I Live in Vermont."












Happy Solstice!

you almost always have dreamy pics, but pics 2 and 3 are extra good.

My goodness that is picturesque, It'd be fine if we could just hunker by the fire and not have to drive anywhere.
BTW I'm about to make stollen and googling for recipes many paths seem to lead to Vermont - is Vermont the secret stollen centre of the universe?

One of the great things about blogging is getting comments from wonderful writers from places as far flung (from where I am) as Pittsburgh, PA and Undisclosed Location, France. I love the internet. Lulu - I don't know what "stollen" is. So if it's a capital it's news to me. I am going to google it.

Fabulous snow pics. And I love the seasonal banner, too!

Hi Juliet -

We got LOTS more snow after this. I am told it is now the "10th snowiest December on record" and more on the way - actually a "wintry mix" today which is not a nice thing. The pics on your blog of late have me thinking that England looks positively balmy. Nice to hear from you. I am swinging over to Mersea to check things out.
