So far not a single flake has fallen. This is what happens when I actually prepare for a weather event. The National Weather Service has named this storm "Nemo". Really.

No school today. There's probably only 3-4 inches out there, but the mixture overnight/early morning was icy so the roads are bad. Hope you guys on the east coast don't get hit too hard!

Hey, nothing happening here in my part of MA, either Majomull. Hope this doesn't turn into the Fraud O' the Century. Actually, I hope it does. :D

We're getting hit pretty good over here.
We're expecting 40cm, but I think it might be more. We were out shoveling earlier. The neighbour came by with his snow blower and did most of it for us! He's renewed some of my my faith in "community"! :)

I also got the dog groomed and replaced another one of the toilets. I did a bit of calking in the shower as well.

Phew, all this and good looks too... :D

Absolutely nothing on the ground Friday morning.

Saturday morning? 26 inches of the white stuff. *Sigh*.

Mexican American for stinking or have you not seen the film. Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges.

I don't remember the movie, but I know that line from somewhere. :)

Well, we got more over night. Thankfully, not too much blew onto the driveway. The dog barely made it through the snow drift out back this morning, in order to do his business. (where's the cold, or freezing smileys??)
