Boy am I happy I didn't have to work today! This is the kind of day I don't get upset with surge in business. This kind of storm that can cripple an area like Boston. It's crowded around here. Still it's not going to be like 1978. That's the one we remember around here. Mother nature can sure be impressive.
I spent a tranquil day. I didn't have to do do anything and I sure didn't do much of anything. I am warm and toasty and in a good mood. I guess I'm just decompressing. I got to watch the New England Patriots win yet again. Boy I am so lucky to live near a city with so many pro teams in contention for a championship. Anyway I didn't do much of anything. I did watch a bit of television. Boy are the networks exploiting the popularity of "talent shows". I saw a promo for yet another show, Live To Dance. What's next? So You Think You Can Yodel? America's Got Gas.
OK . Fast forward. It is now 2:35 on Monday. The snow is pretty much over but the wind is howling. It's actually tough to tell if the snow has ended because of all the blowing snow. All my shoveling is done. I've been out and about for a bit. It's slow going but you can get around.
|My street today.|
|That's my car surrounded by snow.|
And now a little movie.
Update. It is now about 4:45 pm. I stopped writing for a bit. Finished off my laundry and am getting ready to make a pizza.
Well despite all the snow I am none the worse for wear. People along the coast got the worst of it. They got mostly rain but the ocean was very angry. At the height of the storm there were 30 foot waves. Next week at this time most of this snow will be gone. If I had the energy I would get dressed, not that I'm not dressed at the moment, and go out and take pictures of the decorated houses before the snow gets ugly. But listening to that wind howl through the wrought iron on the porch I think I'll just eat my pizza and fall into a vegetative state.
I go back to work tomorrow. I have been very lucky to have had these last 3 days off. Apart for some shoveling I won't be so lucky next week as I work right through New Years day. Hey you pay for your thrills.
I had other stuff to mention but I can't think of it at the moment besides I hear the pizza calling.
I'm outta here.
