Well, the weather INDEED is quite frightful -- for Atlantic City.
We don't get snow -- with the salt air of the ocean, snow accumulation is rare.
In the past 24 hours, we have over 15 inches -- closer to 18.
Now add in the wind gusts up to 25 and 30 mph and that gives drifts !
The street has been plowed (in our subdivision) by the landscaping company.
No sidewalks are clear.
We can't even see the Christmas decorations in the front yard.
I cleared off the cars twice yesterday.
The second time was before the sleet started.
No matter how much He argued about doing it, I am glad I did -- at least it isn't snow/ice/more snow.
Uncovering the cars again will be a chore.
But that's ok.
It has to be done in prep for tomorrow for work.
And once again a path will have to be cleared in the back yard so that the dogs can "do their business".
This much is rare for the Shore.
But I've enjoyed it.
I would have enjoyed getting down to the Boardwalk to take pictures of the snow on the Beach.
That isn't going to happen.
Maybe next time when we have a few inches less.
Colleen baked cookies all day yesterday.
I felt like my nose was turning in to a sugar detector.
Not sure how she stood it all day -- I would have been crazed at one point.
Cookies are not a "big thing" for me.
BUT, I was able to convince her to save the Butterscotch ones for MEEEEEEEEeeeeee !
That was the one I liked the best (oh I only tasted two of the nine-gazillion ones she baked).
I wasn't NEARLY as efficient as she was: I beaded and napped.
