Drying Out

Yesterday, parts of the US, including northern VA, got hit with another winter storm dumping inches of wet snow. But, the Frog & PenguINN’s snow shovel sat idle as the VA eastern shore was pounded with winds up to 35 mph and downpours — 2.04 inches of rain within a 24-hour period.

Here’s some shots from the morning after when I took a walk around the neighborhood.

This is not waterfront property, well maybe now it is, and looks like it’s a good thing there’s a boat nearby.


Nope, these are not peaceful streams — looks can deceive.


These are where vegetable gardens will be planted if Spring AND dryer weather come here (soon), preferably together.








We hope that blogger friends and all others in the path of the latest winter storms were safe.

So when did that groundhog say Spring was coming?

Spring? Not here! We had some blue skies today but also a bitter cold wind. We are to have temps near 50 on Sunday.

My thoughts were with you yesterday during the storm. We only had wind and rain too.

Enjoy your evening!

Not soon enough by the looks and sounds of all this ! I to hope all others in the path of the storm were safe as well ! Here it has been very mild with some wet snow and rain and the odd peek of sunshine ! Have a good evening !

We had a light dusting of snow and strong wind yesterday but thankfully no damage. Wishing you a nice and safe weekend.

Oh, my, I hope you dry out soon.

We had snow here and were on the way home from a meeting when it started on Tuesday night. Images coming on my blog soon. :)

We got about four inches of snow, but most of it has melted off again today. Looks like it will take a little time before things are dry again there.

We had snow too. We thought we would have to finally get the snow shovel out but today took care of it and all is well. My thoughts are certainly with those people who took another wallop with this latest storm. Glad you and Grenville are okay.

I agree with my PA friends, Punxy Phil blew it big time this year. But then again, maybe it was an imposter who burrowed into the den just to mess up Phil's tradition. Sure does look wet.

We missed this -- neither snow nor rain. Yippee!
