Yup, not a single flake fell here this weekend — not even a flurry (or two).
That wasn't true for many areas along the East Coast hit with a massive nor'easter blizzard that blanketed states with the heaviest snow seen in years, shutting down Washington D.C. and New York City.
We phoned family and friends in PA, RI NJ, and DC, who were all hard hit as well, asking if they could send us some of their snow bounty — without hesitation, they all said YES!
The grands, Bobby and Ellie, shoveled out at their RI home where they got 8-10 inches.
Friends in southern NJ sent us this photo taken from their front door. Over 18 inches had fallen there by mid-day on Saturday.
In PA, "Grand" puppy Lola romped in more than 2 feet of snow in her back yard.
Her owners, daughter Coleen and husband Paulo, were kept busy clearing a path an estimated 2 feet of snow.
And, the only "flakes" found in our area were ourselves
Since there wasn't enough snow cover to snowshoe on Friday, we went for a chilly morning walk through Mine Falls Park. Yes, we know that there's a lot more winter to go and before long we will have more than our share of s-n-o-w.
Meanwhile, our family and friends were all safe. We hope everyone else was as well.
