A good old-fashioned New England blizzard!!!

That's what we are in the middle of right now!!! Our world is blanketed in white!!!

Please excuse the quality of these photos. I took them with my phone...just stuck my arm outside the door and snapped!!! Too cold to go out there!!!

And this time around the snow is that heavy, wet snow. I will stick to my warm house!

So very thankful for a cool boss who told me from yesterday that I could have the day off today!!! And the hubs is home, too! Actually I think my entire neighborhood is home. All the cars are buried! And everything is quiet and still and so peaceful. Soon, though, I will hear the snowblowers start up one by one, shattering the winter calm...

I saw on the news today that 49 of the 50 states have snow on the ground! And it is Florida that is the lone snow holdout! You probably thought Hawaii, huh? I did, too, at first, but there is snow on Mauna Kea on the Big Island! Actually I am not surprised. When Kev and I went on our honeymoon in Hawaii we went to the top of Mt. Haleakala on Maui to watch the sunrise. Haleakala is approx 11,000 feet...it was about 30* at the top! On Hawaii!!!

So, according to the weather reporters most of you have snow, too!!! 
Stay safe and warm!!!

It is so beautiful. Nothing on the ground here, but I'm sure somewhere else in the state has snow.

It sure was pretty! But shoveling was not fun. I am sure I will be sore tomorrow but today was a fun snow day.

Be safe, I just drove around town and it's getting a little slick.
