It's been snowing all day and will snow all night. I haven't been out but I can say we have a LOT of snow. It's hard to tell how much because of the blowing and drifting right now. Our driveway was clear after the last storm, now you can't see that it was ever done.

msina, after your last post, I'm coming for supper. Gonna head out now, and hope to make it there by oh, say 2pm Tuesday? Sound good?

I'd have to venture a guess of about 6 inches so far, but you are right about the wind. Very hard to tell exactly.

Winter is great for cooking! We tend to lean more towards heavy meals here, chili, soups, chowders, pasta, etc.. all those things that just aren't right in the warmer months. Gotta love winter cooking! I think tonight I'm just going w/cornbread since I'm all alone. But maybe not, maybe I'll do soup and cornbread... hmmm...

The problem is this year we are getting the snow and cold. I posted before the snow fell how the weather forecaster on Channel 8 in Portland said this was going to be a colder than normal winter and a snowier than normal winter and people on here doubted me. Well, so far, winter hasn't even started yet and he's been right on the money. His original prediction was colder than normal weather for 3 months and then we will get an early spring with a warming trend in March.

Winter hasn't even begun and I am already sick of it. I am ready to head to Florida now.

I love to cook and eat with the seasons as well... and I will be GLAD when I am done with this low carb thing and can at least eat some of my winter favorites every few days. Stew just is no good without potatoes, and I like BEANS... soups I tend to put a lot of veggies and stuff in (nothing watery about my hearty soup!) and most of the veggies are no-nos on this darn diet and then there is homemade bread of all sorts...

GRRR.. making me HUNGRY here. Well by the time I get to ME I will be in "maintenance" mode... and likely being a lot more active too!

geez, you just got back and it's all ready begun.

I told you what the Almanac said. It says milder winter temps with more precip. We live in Maine....so far I don't see these temperatures as being colder than normal. Looks pretty normal to me.

It's beautiful this morning. The wind died down over night. I was too warm with my barn coat when I did chores. Later this morning I'll be doing a lot of heavy duty work and will be out there in turtleneck and sweat shirt. I AM getting tired snow - I've shoveled more than enough. I want the work done so that I can start playing.
