Well hello everyone. I hope you are all well and safe and snug this morning. All I can say about my area is "the weather outside is frightful" - and no it ISN'T DELIGHTFUL!!!!!!! It is crap! UGH
Yep, we had a blizzard - the news may not call it that - but that is what it was.
Snow, snow and more snow and 35 MPH winds with higher gusts ALL afternoon and night!
News says 8.5" - well they aren't at my house!!! Good 12" here and drifts that are knee high or higher. I now have piles after shoveling that are more than waist deep. Good grief we won't thaw for months!!!!! LOL
I went out 3 times yesterday just to clean my side from back door to the backyard and then to make paths out to the greenhouse and paths for the kitties to go and do their business! They hate the wind - but they stayed in and warm and all are fine this AM.
I didn't sleep well last night at all - tired and worried about the babies. I know - but they are my babies!
I get up this AM and look out the bedroom window and Momma had ventured out - she needed to do her business and it was about breakfast time. The snow had piled up again on the walk and she was up to her chest in snow!!! She just did her potty right there on the path! Can't say as I blame her. Then she looked around as if to say "what the heck is this garbage?". My sentiments exactly.
Well, I made it out there and got them fed - then I preceded to clean all paths again and places they can more easily go take care of business. Put out food for the birds and squirrels, shoveled out the path to the front and the walks and steps.
Came in a rested.
Back out a while later - working on drive and public walk out front (it is law homeowners are responsible). The 13 year old two doors down finally came and helped a bit after I had much done - but it was help!!! I gave him some $$ for helping and he was tickled.
More to do - but will take my time - as this girl is going no where for days!!!!!!!
WHY an older picture? I need HELP BLOGGERS!!!!!! Suddenly I can't pull pictures from my private albums - which I always do. This just happened in the last few days. Now I can re-use pictures that I have already posted here and that are on blogger file.
When I try to post a picture from my private files I get a message that says:
?????? WHY??? Any ideas? Has something changed on blogger that I am unaware of?
I am not the most computer savvy person and this just flusters the stuffing out of me.
I have refreshed everything - I have restarted the computer several times - I even deleted some old pictures from my pictures - NOTHING has helped.
If anyone has a clue PLEASE HELP!!!!!
Of course I suddenly want to share all kinds of pictures and I can't. Isn't that the way?? Sure is frustrating.
Thanks in advance if you have any ideas.
Well, I think I can safely say a nice hot bath tonight will be delightful. My poor aching back. Old age aint for sissies!!!!!
I feel so sorry for the folks in the south who are getting hit that never have cold and snow. They have no clue what to do. The have no road maintenance equipment and power is out for millions. It is cold.
PLEASE pray for all our brothers and sisters all over the country who are in the path of these nasty storms. It is no fun at all - but at least I know how to take care of it and I am prepared. I know many of you are more than prepared as well! THAT is WHAT WE DO!!!!!!
Thanks for any ideas you all can offer on the Blogger situation!
Please stay safe, and warm and home!
Blessings to you all.
