Snow, We Got It!

Snow was our weather headliner today as major nor’easter hit the Northeastern U.S. Some parts of southern New England are expecting up to 16 inches of snow by the time it winds down this evening.This was the first major snow we're had in Nashua, NH this winter, aside from some smaller snowfalls between 2-4 inches in January and earlier this month.

The storm came a day after clear skies and nearly spring-like temperatures in the mid-50s on Wednesday. We walked downtown yesterday and saw folks going without jackets and wearing t-shirts and shorts!in t-shirts and without jackets. 

It was a very different story today as light snow started falling around 7 a.m. and continued throughout the day.

The city declared a snow emergency early last night many hours in advance of the storm. School, public facilities, local business and the local mall were all closed today. Estimated accumulation as of this evening was 13 inches here in the city.

The Nashua River was starting to fill in with the snowfall before nightfall. It will freeze more tonight as frigid temps of 10-20 degrees will follow the storm.

We stayed inside all day with no need (or desire) to go outdoors. This was definitely a "comfort" food day. Freshly baked banana-blueberry muffins were on our breakfast menu. 

And homemade lasagna was the dinner entrée this evening.

If any fellow bloggers were also affected by this winter storm, we hope you are safe and warm as well. (BTW there's leftover muffins and lasagna if you're in the neighborhood.)

That's a lot of snow. I imagine it'll end up going into the Atlantic provinces as well.

We only got maybe 2 inches of snow. It's so cold and windy though. Blowing snow is making the roads hazardous tonight.
Your food looks delicious. It's so nice to be able to stay in, isn't it?

Storms are fine when seen through a window whilst eating muffins and lasagna.

It is so pretty to look at and so nasty to be out in. We are having spring-like weather for a few days so most of our accumulation should melt. Then I'm sure we'll be visited by snow again.

Your lasagna and muffins look grand! We had snow the last couple of days, but just a couple of inches, so we can't complain.

Muffins and lasagna look really good. I have a lasagna left over in the freezer from Christmas (I always make two) that when the kids get back from their trip I will take out. First real snow of the year but I hear we have another on the way. I knew it was too good to be true, lol... Hugs, LJ
