WELCOMING IN MARCH......

.......currently at the Casa.......

Lately it has been extremely mild, temps in the 50-60's. This week had lots of rain. Today, was suppose to be rainy, but turned into a horrific no'easter. Rain , snow, extremely powerful winds, and power outages. Left work early as power went out. Took 2 hours to get home, only living, mind you, 20 minutes...if. Came home to this....
One very old pine uprooted leaning into a old oak tree, and another old pine completely down.Yikes. As for moi, I have dinner ready, the heat cranked, and  tons of candles lit just in case I lose  power. ... I hope not...might make for a long cold night.....and with no man present. Double yikes.

The whole area is a mess .

  1. Missed you, sweetie! Break out extra blankies and hunker down with Buster. Practice candle safety. By the way, those are beautiful, fearsome pictures.

  3. Thank you for sharing these amazing fotos! The snow looks fantastic and yet the damages are terrifying. Uprooted trees! Power outages! That's bad. I hope you have water and canned food and emergency supplies just in case. I hope the candles smell nice and make for a cozy night.

    Stay safe and warm. Make sure your sarong scarf is nearby to keep you warm!

    1. Yes, the scarf was indeed handy and the candles. We loss power for about a three hour window, so not to bad. I usually enjoy candle lit night to begin with.

  6. I have been watching the storms on the news, oddly enough, even though I am well north of you, our weather has been beautiful, sunny and above freezing. I have been able to drive around the last few days with the heat off in the car. Stay warm and safe.

  7. It sounds (and looks) an awful lot like the weather we've just experienced. It'll blow over, though - unlike you, it seems, as you don't currently have a man in stock (I'm surprised - it's not like you to be unprepared).

  8. Yeah...where the hell did this come from???? It's like wind tunnels down the streets in Philly. It's been very destructive.

  10. I was reading news reports this morning of that nor'easter. Wow! We've got rain and wind from the storm hitting Europe. These two weather patterns are unbelievable. Hope you haven't lost power/heat! Sorry there's no one nearby to keep you warm(er). You should probably consider having someone on call. I'm sure there are plenty of willing warm bodies.

    1. Well we loss power for a few hours, but thanks to the candle and a few nips of whiskey, we came through fine. But I'll miss those beautiful pines.

  12. The snow-fall is pretty; the tree-fall, not so much.
    Stay safe and warm rm and gin-soaked.
    I've heard that's the best way to weather any storm.

    1. I did take a lap or two in the old gin bath Bob.

  13. I imagine it's the same weather system that attacked Cleveland. Driving home form work Thursday night was right out of a Jack London story--mush dogs would have gotten me home faster than my car did. Today, Saturday, it's all melting away.

    1. Same here Kirk. It's melting fast today. But Buster doesn't seem keen on being a mush dog.
