Just hanging around...

...waiting for the blizzard to start.

Schools have already been cancelled in anticipation of the possible 2-1/2 feet of snow we're expecting.

I'm more concerned about the high winds than the snow as 60 mph gusts are also expected. I'm praying that the power stays on and the trees stay upright (and off the house, unlike the freak October snowstorm we had a couple of years ago).

Our driveway and front yard back in 1982, shortly after moving into our little 'Enchanted Cottage,' (a.k.a. Split Entry). SCARY! We certainly don't want a repeat of this!

Those of you in the path of this snowstorm / Nor'Easter / blizzard, stay safe!

I also wanted to thank photographer/blogger Mollys Muses (her fabulous vintage Etsy shop is MollyFinds); she and I are members of ETSY's vintage Vestiesteam and she did a wonderful post today promoting the SWEET15 sale (15% off everything) that 60+ ETSY Vestiesteam members' shops are offering through February 15th.  Thank you, Molly, for including us in your fantastic blog post!

Stay warm, everyone!!

Good luck with that snow headed your way! We're getting it right now here in northern IL - 6 to 9" - but that's nothing compared to what you're going to get socked with tomorrow. Yikes! Hope you're stocked up on groceries!

Nothing here yet but I have the woodstove going and a big jug of water ready! Stay warm!

I saw that predicted storm on TV tonight. We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers and hope for the best!!

Good Friday morning Donna, I guess you and your neighbors are all "hunkered down" waiting for the snow.. I hope it won't be unmanagable and will melt soon. I'll be thinking about you !
I don't know how Baby got on the railing or how she holds on to it.. She's quite the acrobat.
I'm thinking too about your chipmunks. I know they'll be glad to be able to have more of your peanuts.. Bless their little hearts.
Take care and stay warm and cozy.
Blessings, Charlotte in Virginia
