Significant Snowfall Paralyzes Eastern Shore


A severe winter storm began inundating the Eastern Shore with snow around 9PM last night and raged throughout the night. Winds howled and whipped the snow into blinding squalls. We spent the long night huddled under the comforter listening to the rattle of the windows and the shriek of gusts around the eaves.
This morning we awoke to find almost an inch of snow blocking our door. Unfortunately we left our only snow shovel out on the porch and couldn’t reach it.

So we consulted out ‘Winter Emergency Plan” which recommended hot coffee and reading in bed till 9AM, which we did.

Then the Princess bravely entered the kitchen and boldly put together a Crock Pot Roast Beef dinner for later. Pictures of the 'Crock Creation' to follow.
Not to be out done, her trusty Frog hopped into the fray and whipped up a delicious Bacon & French Toast Breakfast. 

AND to compliment the Princess's magnificent ‘Crock Creation’, he popped a home grown Peach Pie in the oven for dessert.

And that’s how we handle ‘Significant Snowfalls' on the Eastern Shore. Hopefully we will be able to get out soon so we can get some Vanilla Ice Cream for the pie. [I think i hear the plows coming NOW!!!!!]

It is 5 PM... I am straining my eyes to see if there is any snow left... Ah YES! I think I see a patch under the bushes. I thought I saw some white on a tree branch, but it was where a bird had been sitting...
However, there is still some ice on the carport!
I LOVE an Eastern Shore blizzard! My kind of snow!

We ended up travelling on some snowy roads this weekend, and it was not fun. The non-travelling part of the weekend was though.

Nothin' burps as good a bacon! What a delight to have this after taking care of the snow and I did not have to cook it. LOOKS YUMMY!!! A man in the kitchen... that is the passage to my soul and Mrs. P sure has is blesed.

Good suggestion, JP. But then we could always stay inside and eat pancakes and wait for the snow to melt.

Elaine, your snowfall looked wonderful to us cause we wish we had a bit more here.

Daisy, an inch is a BIG deal in these parts. We skipped the ice cream and had Cool Whip instead.

Sandra, you're welcome anytime!

Possum, but it was sure pretty, while it lasted.

Tammy, yes Grenville is handy in the kitchen and among his specialties is breakfast. He can do a really crisp bacon, so I let him!

Yoiks! An inch of snow! Good thing you had provisions on hand to make some yummy meals.
