Still snowed in

Oh, I guess it wouldn't be that bad if I really needed to get out, but I don't need to. It mostly looks like snow, not ice, though I am really not used to seeing the snow this deep.

A big branch fell off of our tree and into the street. It wasn't quite as big as the one that fell earlier, and my husband and someone who came to check on a neighbor pulled the branch out of the street. Also, the tree in the picture from the previous post was damaged, though not as bad as ours.

And it isn't like I really care about this tree anyway. I just don't want parts of it to fall on the house or the car.

It is just now getting above freezing, so snow is falling in big clumps from the trees and the roof. It will probably be very bad tomorrow when the snow melts and then freezes on the streets. But I guess the snow will still be here for a while.

Doesn't matter much. I have no place that I need to go.

After all the talk about planned power outages, my mother's electricity went off. It was not planned. And she doesn't have gas, so she'll have to wait to have a bath or cook anything. She hasn't called yet to say if it is back on. But yesterday she said that she was okay and didn't need anything.

We will just sit around the house and watch movies and make soup.

We are still digging out from under 4 feet of snow here in MD. It's crazy here.

The snow wages a war on the trees here, and many branches fall.

Snow can really get old.

Well, he did end up going to work. They had called to officially say that the job at his site had been cancelled, which is what we figured would happen, same as the day before. But then they called back and said that there was this other job that wasn't canceled, but one of the guys working there was snowed in, so he was sent instead.

Although the job itself wasn't cancelled, most of the customers did cancel. So he got home early.
