Hi cluadie
hope everyone is well and warm
can you believe its 29 years since the space shuttle exploded

1986

U.S. shuttle Challenger exploded 72 seconds after lift off, killing all seven crew members aboard, including school teacher Christa McAuliffe.

I remember it as if it was yesterday, it was before I came to live over this side of the water I was expecting a baby.

we did not get much snow yesterday at home and by the lake there was a few inches, so not too bad for us.

little C got sent home from School ill, little H the new one is not sleeping through the night yet she is up every hour, so mum and dad are very tired.

I finished watching the last of the walking dead marathon, from episode 1 to the last televised episode in 2 weeks. I am looking forward to seeing the new season on Sunday

A good morning out!

Got about $2.50 for the grocery store senior discount, had 1 e-coupon and 3 paper ones; got a few things on sale; used up my remaining 400 fuel points for this month, and ended up getting about 10 gallons of gas for about $15! Whoo hoo!

Everything got done; now what would make this an even more spectacular day would be if I get some test results from somebuddy! If not, then looks like I'll be making several phone calls tomorrow morning.

Hello, dickc49 and Lighting10K!

dick, wow! So much snow! Glad you've been able to keep up with the clearing off. I heard that it's really, really cold where you are, too, so bundle up! Hoping you see the sun soon!

Lighting, it's warmed up now to about 45°, so that's certainly better. Sure am glad the wind is almost nonexistent. Hawks game...tonight at 8 PM on ESPN; will be keeping track of it, too, as I watch another program.

Good morning Claudie,

Well, i went out a second time last night and cleaned up some more as a few more inches fell. Son used the scoop to shove it to the sides and I blew it out. This morning I am going to have to go out and do it a third time as it was still snowing as I went to bed, and I can see areas that have drifted back in. NOt sure how much more my low back is going to put up with. ITs kind of tight this morning. No daycare, so my daughter stayed home from work. HAve not seen or heard anything from the other parents yet so I assume one is home with the grand daughter.

I think once I get this cleaned up, I should be good. While its still cloudy now, the forecast is for the sun to come out. Once that happens, it will form a tiny bit of crust so that no more of this blows around. I will wait another day to shovel out the second floor deck. That is one and one half flights of steps, and then the snow is drifted on it to a depth of four feet. Its all shovel work. Will do it as my back tells me I can.

Wow! Quite a crowd this morning!

Good morning, sandipaws, Robustus, Scanman, Silverhand, WKGaser, Dino, yankie, MidnightSun, pink, JM, org, senile, grmoore, scout, and TUrtLE!

sandipaws, it was a pretty good day yesterday; hoping for the same today, too.

Robustus, glad you had another drama-free day yesterday. Hoping things work out for your dad if he gets out today.

Scanman, ooohhh! Forget about that 'lost' day!

Silverhand, hey! The Sunday 'toons are STILL good today!

Dino, aaahhh, the Lady Patriots! Is that the team Emily will be on when she gets to high school? As for Dominique...the Hawks play tonight, going for #17 wins in a row, and the game should be on TV. I'll see if it's Dominique that's announcing.

MidnightSun, yikes! Lots of snow around there! Hope it's not too big a chore for you to clear off what you need to. BTW, I checked the price of the 93%/7% hamburger at WM yesterday; one pound was $5.98. :(

JM, I think the northern part of GA got about the same amount of snow you did. BTW, Hawks play tonight; not sure of the time, but it's probably 7:30 or 8 ET.

org, oh, my! A boy king!

grmoore, an all-day meeting? Hope it's an interesting one then.

scout, 4 inches of snow isn't as bad as it could have gotten. Once it warms up, that'll melt away quickly.

TUrtLE, :)

WKGase, yankie, pink, and senile, thanks for stopping in!

One more planned out-and-about day...I'll first make a quick stop at Mom's, then make a quick stop in the dollar store for a birthday card (for Alhana); a stop at the Kroger gas station where gas is about $1.85/gallon (and I'll use up the remaining 400 fuel points...for an extra 40¢ off); another quick stop to drop off newspapers at the recycling place, and FINALLY to the grocery store! Busy, busy! :) At least it'll be sunny, though, a bit chilly at about 35°.

Good morning Claudie!

Can tell we rec'd much more than 4-8" by the snow in the window boxes. Will know in a few hours.

Expected the snow to start in the afternoon. Saw the radar images of the clouds swirl from the coast of Portland, Maine early yesterday morning in the oh so familiar counter clockwise motion our typical nor'easters take.

The counter clockwise swirl of a true nor'easter soaks up the moisture from the ocean and dumps it inland as heavy snow in the winter. Usually lots of it as it continuously swirls for hours on end.

The snow began lightly at 7:20 AM. By 9:30 AM it was falling moderately. For a time had it on my mind to get a loaf of bread. That idea went away as the flakes fell thickly and fast.

Lit the kero heater at 1 AM. It was a warmer than normal w/the temp at 9°F (-12°C). By 9 AM the house was more than warm enough. Turned the heater off outside, then watched dime sized chunks fall. Every limb of every tree had snow covered limbs. It is Beautiful!

My window boxes are full of snow half way up to the tops of the windows. No snow dud here. Nearby Jefferson, NH has recorded 12.5 inches (31.75 cm). Portland, Maine 25" (63.5cm). Officialy (NWS) the highest snow totals in New England is 36" (91.4cm) in Hudson, Auburn, and Lunenburg, Mass

Mt Washington, 6,288' (1916 m), recorded sustained winds of 111 mph (180 km/h). Offically 74 and 75 mph winds (130 km/h) in the flatlands. More than 1,000 lost power.

The blizzard warning remains in effect through 4 AM. Will enjoy the beauty and clean up after first light. More snow due on Friday.

The temp is 12° (-11°C) and should remain so.

Civil twilight is 6:38 AM EST. Night is 5:20 PM.

Sunrise: 7:09 AM. Set: 4:49 PM.

Length of day: 9h 40m. Length of visible light: 10h 42m. Tomorrow will be 2m 25s longer.

Have a fabulous day!

Good evening/morning Claudie

Cool that Dominique is still calling the games if you're right. Dell Curry is a Color Commentator for the Hornets now. He was one of my favorite 6th men from back in the day. Now his Son, Stephen is making a name for himself in Golden State. And doing well at it.

I thought I'd spoke too soon about the sn*w last night. We had some more downpours of the white stuff overnight last night and this morning. Officially, the NWS numbers reported 1.5" for Middlebourne and 1" for Parkersburg. Center Point, WV reported 9".

A chilly night in store here. Temp hovering around 20 as I type this. In addition to the Lady Bobcats, I do follow the Lady Patriots at Parkersburg South High School as well. Tonight they were scheduled to play Morgantown in a rematch of the championship game last season. Morgantown won the last bout and their dominance, unfortunately continues. Just found the final score. Morgantown 47 South 34. Lady Patriots are 12-3 on the season.

Cold tonight lows in the teens.

No drama again today which is really nice. But I am afraid that that might be over really soon. I mentioned in the Cafe regarding the fear of my dad's dismissal from the rehab facility which could be possibly tomorrow. I am really not looking forward to it!

Good afternoon Claudie,

We just passed the 24" mark at my house and its still snowing a bit. i have done the snow blower thing and have a touch more to do. Son and wife are cleaning the edges I cannot do with the blower, like stairs and close to the cars. I got 95% of it. It is/was quite a storm.

Hello, sandipaws, Farful, attitash, and dickc49!

sandipaws, this day didn't start out being windy, but it sure is now (between 10 and 15 mph)! Thank goodness the sun's shining today, though (as opposed to yesterday being super cloudy)!

Farful, no test results as of yet (today). :( Bagpipes? Ooohhh! I love listening to them!

attitash, you had 4 days off last weekend, and now you're working only 2 and get more days off? Whoooeee! Nice! How many days off this time, just 2?

dick, I have a FB friend who lives in a Boston suburb, and she posted pix of the snow there at her house. She said it was already about 20 inches and still coming down. No drifts or bare spots there (from what I could see in the pix). It looked to be the same depth all over. Take care!

Good morning Claudie,

From what I can guess fro the TV and my windows we are 15 or so inches and still coming down. It has been WINDY! Gusts have been over 50 MPH. My truck only has a small triangle of snow on the back on the tonneau cover behind the cab. Wife's car has a little drift on the hood. HAve anywhere from a bare spot to 2 1/2 feet in the driveway with the drifting. With it being 15°F out, this is a really light powder snow and its going to be easy to move later. I am going to wait until it dies down some to clear it out. No sense in trying now as it will just drift back in.

Good morning, WKGaser, Dino, yankie, MidnightSun, JM, hmcsretired07, org, senile, grmoore, TUrtLE, and scout!

Dino, yes, Dominique and Spud go back a few years. :) If I'm not mistaken, I think Dominique is announcing Hawks games on TV now; I'll have to check.

MidnightSun, 4-8 inches of snow isn't too bad when you consider how much those areas south of you are supposed to get.

JM, there was a dusting of snow in northern parts of GA, too. Here yesterday? Just very cloudy and VERY windy! I think we're supposed to have more sun today, but way less wind.

org, thanks for today's history info. :)

grmoore, that was a pretty good car check-up. :) Who would get the new car, your wife?

TUrtLE, aaawww, those doggies in the picture look like they want something. :)

scout, did you get a lot more snow?

WKGaser, yankie, hmcsretired, and senile, thanks for stopping in!

It's Tuesday, so I'm taking Mom to WM this morning; actually a little bit earlier than I would normally. There's a resident monthly meeting today at 10:30 and Mom wants to be there. That shouldn't be a problem. :) After I drop here back off, I have to stop at the vet's office to pick up a refill for my big boy kitty and then home it'll be. :)

I still haven't heard of any results from ANY of the tests Mom and I have taken. I'm most concerned about the results from Mom's blood work last Tuesday, hoping her sodium level is alright. It looks like I'm going to have to call people. :(

Transmission service, software update on computer system, and oil change. Car has almost 180K miles so it's running well - and paid off. (Yea!!) Speaking of not paid off, we will likely trade the truck pretty quickly and replace it with a 2015 Honda CR-V.

Off to start the day.

Good morning, Claudie. I saw a dusting of snow on top of the trash can but that was about it. Some of the higher elevations may have seen some snow, I will check the weather report to see. It did get pretty cold on yesterday, how is the weather in your neighborhood?

Good morning Claudie!

Can always cook on top of the cage of the kero heater. Have done it often in the past.

Our low was -16° (-27°C) yesterday morning. Yet only -9° (-23°C) at 6,288' (1,916 metres) on the summit of Mt Washington. Glad to have the kero heater lit from 1 AM into this morning. The entire house is toasty warm. In fact it is tee shirt warm w/constant 23,000 BTU's per hour.

Got ready at 7 AM to visit Several Auto Body Shops for estimate for my Dart. It was backed into in front of the Lancaster P.O. Saturday, just before noon. Sadly two places have closed their doors. Perhaps permanently.

Drove to Littleton to go to an auto body shop run by Littleton Chevy. The owner of that dealership also owns the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep in that town. Parts and labor are $534 in damages.

Took that estimate 7 miles further south to my Insur Agency in Franconia. They like that the cop that is investigating the hit and run took two digital photos and the plate number was written down.

Returned home 3 hours later w/instructions to phone the P.D. to get the name of the driver to call and get her Insur Co and policy number. Also to get a copy of the police report. Plan to do this Wednesday.

Had brought the pork ribs deep frozen outdoors inside to thaw all morning. They were nicely able to be cut to fit into the crock pot on my return. Added carrots, green beans and some homemade BBQ sauce.

Cheated and opened a can of kidney beans, added some molasses and real maple syrup. 4 hours later the ribs were ready to try. Very good sampling.Will save them and the 2 sirloin tip meals for another day.

The nor'easter is brewing well is southern New England w/plenty of snow falling. It will reach us this afternoon and into the overnight The Nat'l Weather Service in Maine cautions: "Winter Storm Warning remains in effect from 10 PM Monday to 4 am EST Wednesday.

Above the notches the revised forecast is for 4 to 8 inches (10-20 cm) of snow and perhaps some stiff winds. Am well prepared w/kero and food if a king size whammy, if it does arrive.

A 100% chance of lots of snow into early tomorrow morning. Much more in southern New England especially on the coast.

The temp is 14° (-10°C) and should remain so.

Civil twilight is 6:38 AM EST. Night is 5:19 PM.

Sunrise: 7:10 AM. Set: 4:48 PM.

Length of day: 9h 37m. Length of visible light: 10h 40m. Tomorrow will be 2m 22s longer.

Have a wonderful day!

Good evening Claudie

Hawks definitely worth bragging about. Even doing well without Dominique or Spud Webb. They go back a couple of years, don't they?

The snow event is over for us for now. We got less than 2" of new snow. Places south of Moundsville even got rain and/or sleet. Most of the worst of it is headed north toward Midnight Sun's area if it hasn't reached him already. I know he's ready for it.

Lady Bobcats have won two in a row. Got the official word from the girl who got 3 steals and 4 rebounds in her time of playing. She told me a really amusing story about the game where one of the other players got the ball from them and started down the court. Emily caught her. And by surprise. The team now sits at 4-3 with their next game, which I'll be attending, against Parkersburg Catholic on Wednesday.

Off and on flurries here. Temps in the low 20s.

Good evening, attitash, kathybye and Robustus!

attitash, you'd want that monster storm where you live? <shakes head> I KNOW you want the snow so you can ski, but what about all the other problems that would come with it?

kathybye, wow, cool that you got an appointment this week. That's amazing to me, in this day and age. Aaahhh, a mani and pedi! Love having my happy feet (and legs) :)

Robustus, sometimes it's good to have a day like you had today. No drama!

Time for me to sign out for the night.

Good night, everybuddy!

Good evening Claudie,

As the saying goes, no news is good news.

What I mean by that, there's nothing new going on to chat about today.

Back to work and it wasn't too busy today. So, that's about it.

Hi, Claudie!

I called an hour ago, and I can get into my orthopedic guy, Dr. Zeman @ 1:45pm. Thursday. I will be leaving work early, but oh, well, my health comes first!

I looked closer today, and it now looks as if I bruised near the knee cap, but I do not remember hitting anything! However, I have been moving many boxes around in the garage. I have stopped that completely. Garage can always wait!

I am waiting on the pedicure, but am getting a manicure.

Whew!

Back inside!

The yard guy came about 1 PM, and got that tree cut up! Then the harder work started...cleaning up the mess, esp. all the limbs. He left about 3 PM, but didn't get all of it taken care of. I told him to leave the logs (it looks like it's about ½ the tree trunk) until later (a coupla weeks?) when it's a little warmer and not so windy! What I think we're going to do with the remaining logs, since they're pine, is just roll them down the hill in the a ditch that's there.

Then after he was gone, I went out and took some pix with my tablet. I'll see about maybe making a GB album.

Good afternoon, Farful, attitash, and kathybye!

Farful, hope you didn't have to wait too long at the dermatologist's office today.

attitash, yes, lots of news about that storm in New England. Hope you don't get any of it.

kathybye, oh, dear! Hope you haven't injured your knee. When will you get to see the doctor? A mani/pedi tomorrow? Nice! :)

Hi CLaudie
Checking in.
Wrenched my knee somehow doing stretches. It isn't painful, but feels "fat" when walking up/ down stairs. Icing it as we speak, & scheduling a visit to my knee dr. To make certain I did not injure it. Back in ibuprofen after I eat lunch

Sounds as if you had a great time at the nail salon. I'm getting a pedi and a nail polish change tomorrow.

Have a great day!

Good afternoon Claudie....mix of sun & cloud with a high of -10°C/14°F feeling like -18°C/-0.4°F with the wind chill. Lots of coverage about the storm in New England...potential historic reported. Back to work but did get some good skiing in last week! Have a great day.

Good afternoon Claudie and All!
 
Claudie, Hope you have a good day at the nail salon and the yard guy shows up at 1:00pm. Glad that the tree did not damage Hubby's work shop.
 
We had a dry snow today. It was easier to clear away than the wet snow of yesterday. Everyone says that we are having a mild winter this year.
 
K. has an appointment today at the dermatologist office. Probably will not be much a wait because doctor there is prompt.
 
Welcome to Monday!

Whoooee!

Windy!

Believe it or not, the weather we're having down here in Georgia is supposed to be the tail end of that monster storm in the northeastern part of the U.S. It's VERY cloudy and occasionally it sprinkles; the wind is blowing at about 15 mph, sometimes gusting to 20 mph. I'll take this weather, though, over what's predicted for New England.

Hmmmmm, I wonder how the yard guy's going to do out in it. Hope he bundles up good.

Anyway, all my errands taken care after my nail salon visit, and I didn't even have to hurry! :)

Good morning, scout, Bus Jockey, dickc49, and sandipaws!

scout, be careful out there! How much more of the stuff are they predicting for your area?

Bus Jockey, is much snow predicted for your area?

dick, have a good ski morning AND a safe trip home!

sandipaws, thank goodness the tree's not actually in our way. In fact, we didn't even realize it until a few days ago. The tree is kinda on the back side of the building and hubby noticed some tree branches where there shouldn't have been any. He went to investigate, and there was that tree!

Good morning Claudie,
We got about 3-4 inches in Butler where I live.
Hope all goes well for your errands today and that they get your tree out of the way too! {{Hugs}}
