Happy Monday Everybody!!!!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. The Lad and I went on a very cold jaunt out of town for the weekend, and I'm sleeping in today as I'm off..... and staying warm in the bed. It went down to -2 last night, so yours truly even slept with his Calvin's on last night, which is unheard of. Today's Monday moments are compliments of my dear blog reader and friend Pearl Gates. Pearly as I call her, hails from Provincetown. We have met three times now when I go up to P-Town. This fierce queen sent me an email with photos from the current blizzard. The poor thing went without power for almost a day in these unbearably cold temps, but has been restored now. I have the feeling she hasn't visited the Dick Dock lately. Let's all send Pearl some warm lovin kisses!!! From Pearl.....
"With the tremendous drifts of four and five feet and more around town, it's pretty hard to say how much snow we really got. Many on my street and even down Commercial Street, had all the snow blown up onto the patios and formed chest-high drifts, leaving residents and some businesses unable to open the front or back doors to the building. They had to wait for someone to come and shovel them out, as did thousands cape wide. In the meantime, I was waiting for the power to come back on, which we loss on Friday evening, along with about 97% of Provincetown residents whose electricity had gone out during the storm. Provincetown's power began coming back on within about 13 hours, and most of the town's electricity seemed to have been restored relatively quickly, given the severe winds of this very powerful storm, which may turn out to be one for the books. I've been all over the internet since ,trying to find an exact snow total for Provincetown in the "Blizzard of 2015," but "total unavailable" is all I can find. We do know that snowfall from this fierce storm broke a record or two in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Blowing and drifting snows in the coastal areas are much harder to measure than depths in towns farther inland. The devil is in the tremendous drifts whipped up by winds that officially gusted to 75 miles per hour here at the Cape's tip. I spoke to a dispatcher at the Provincetown Police Department who gave the opinion of a two-and-a-half, but even at that, many of us are still digging out through several feet of drifted snow. I am now just glad to be reading the Casa going on's Mistress. Do you have room for another one there???? This weather is wrecking havoc on my wigs""
Pearl's neighbors house!!!!!! Where in hell do they put the snow?!?!?!?
The back of Pearl Gates' house......
This is the house the Mistress usually stays in. Pearl says it's almost buried!!!!
Hard to believe this is the same beach locale and one of my summertime playgrounds.
