Buried in Snow!

I just wanted to take a few minutes to write a quick post for those of you that follow me and may be wondering where I have been.  Over the last few weeks, my life has become consumed with snow removal.  You may have seen the news that the Boston area has been buried in record setting snow.  Our weekends generally consist of removing snow the day before a snow storm just so we can make room for the new snow, removing snow the day of the snow storm (normal), and removing snow around the house and other areas the day after a snow storm.  And, yes, we have been out of room to put snow since the first blizzard dropped almost 3 feet of snow on us.  Between snow blowing the driveway, shoveling, roof raking, chipping away at ice in our gutters, and fighting ice dams and leaks on a daily basis, I haven’t had a chance to write any blog posts (I have some good ones coming up).  And, if I never have to research or talk about ice dams again, I will be one happy girl.  So, I just wanted to send a quick note while you wait for an actual post.  Hopefully, things will be back to normal in the next few weeks…at least I can only hope 🙂

Here are some snow pictures…

The First Blizzard...and I thought this was a lot of snow

The First Blizzard…and I thought this was a lot of snow.  I could even still see my plants, which are now crushed.

Thank God for snow blowers!!!!!

Yup that’s me…can’t see out our front windows anymore and you can’t see the plants anymore.  And, yes, those are panty hose on our roof filled with salt to try to battle some ice dams (it actually works)

That used to be a swing set...
