Re: I'm dreaming of a White Christmas!

Thanks for the post!  I was thinking about you.  I know you're in N.VA.  That is why I have to move to Miami instead.  That's a lot of snow.  We only got rain this time.  Maybe in Jan or Feb, if at all, we will see snow here in Mississippi.

Re: I'm dreaming of a White Christmas!

I've been in NOVA since Sep 02 & this is the first time I've seen snow like this!!!  Usually I am not fazed when they mention it's going to snow....I grew up in Michigan & what we're getting today is normal up there!!!  Smiley Surprised

 

I keep looking for a plow to come by...I'll pay them $30 to plow my driveway!!  CASH, of course!!  Smiley Very Happy

Re: I'm dreaming of a White Christmas!

Losing power would be a real bummer....but at least I have a fireplace & a ton of wood too!  I'd hang blankets & whatever to block off the livingroom.  Too bad my boiler isn't gas fired!  I'd be toasty even with no electric!

 

My neighbor & a buddy just came by a bit ago & totally dug out my driveway!!  Smiley Happy  They're going to come by later on too & keep it up.  I gave them the $$ that would have gone to the plow guy!  Definately worth every penny cuz I'm one tired gal!

Re: I'm dreaming of a White Christmas!

We're getting it now in CT; fortunately we don't have to go anywhere on Sunday morning!  The supermarket was pretty busy Saturday afternoon.

 

Growing up in Wisconsin we always had a White Christmas and about half the time a White Easter (as a kid I liked to annoy grownups by singing "I'm dreaming of a White Easter" whenever we had one).  Wisconsin had some pretty incredible winters in the 1970s, I recall drifts over my head and entire weeks it did not get above 0 degrees Fahrenheit.

You're better off with the fireplace and the wood, BungalowMo...wish I had that...gas fired boilers still need power for the circulator to work!  :smileyhappy: 

 

I'm in CT, just like MattH.  It's snowing hard now, and I'd much rather be in Vegas.  But in spite of the cold, and all the work shoveling out, I've got to admit...the snow does give me that Christmas-ey feeling!  

 

Merry Christmas to all!
