Merry Christmas to all from Jan and David!
Thanks David-It's nice being in New England up until Christmas....But the charm wears off on the 26th.....Check this next picture out-taken in April of 2000 (I think) I'm pretty much dead on my feet in this picture....BigBullitt said:That looks so nice and cozy! I really miss Christmas feeling like Christmas (freezing weather, snow, etc.) It got down to a bitter 48 degrees here.
Your black cat on the left is like one we had. Called her NOMOO'. Or No Moon. She only had a couple white hairs on her belly that looked like stars on a moonless night. And we still have a stray that I found at DFW Airport on a taxiway when I worked there that is a little darker than your cat on the right. Tilly or Matilda. She wouldn't talk as a youngster, now at 18+years she's totally gabby all the time.MaineBullitt said:Vicki-I snowblowed the snow as much as I could. Since that winter I have bought a much larger snowblower that will throw snow over a 12' snowbank. The one in the picture would throw about 8' which coincidentally was about the height of the snow bank. Lots of what I used the snowblower on needed to be shoveled again...:frown:
We live in a neighborhood where the houses are close together and we are at the end of a long street on the corner. The town plows come around the corner and just plow us in. I've seen 10' + snowbanks from the plow trucks.
We learned a trick one storm when my wife was home but I was away-she was out shoveling the driveway and the plow truck came down the street-the driver saw my wife and had mercy-he actually backdragged our driveway and plowed the snow into the woods across the street. If I had been out there he would have buried me....Now we know!!!
P.S.-I know you'll like this pic even though it has nothing to do with Christmas trees!!! Well sort of-the cats always congregate to the tree and fireplace at Christmas so it sort of counts...
The town didn't loose a lot of power lines.. Our city works on trimming the trees away from the lines. The county southwest and west are still without power. We do look like a war zone, with a lot of tree damage.MaineBullitt said:That looks just plain nasty...Did you lose any tree limbs or power lines?
