I had to cancel my Dr. appt because there were whiteouts on the main road. I'm driving again but it still has to be very safe for me to drive. It is truly winter. Supposed to be in single digits tomorrow. Brrr.

How long until you can get a Dr.'s appointment?

What heating system do you have? Natural gas? Propane? Fuel oil with boiler? Wood stoves? Baseboard heat? Sorry if you already posted that information.

Clark, I'm not sure, but I can probably see her PA if she's busy. It's mainly to keep an eye on the pills so more blood tests than Dr. visit.
Escort, We have propane but also a wood stove. It's 2 floors, the basement made into an apartment but shares heat. We save a lot that way, using the stove. In fact, the furnace only came on 2x today so far. Pretty good, I think.

I am not laughing CC...really, I'm not!
Right now I'd have to say this must be my first "real" thunderstorm here...been through others but this is the first time the house has actually been vibrating!
It's a lot different than up north though. This, up there, would almost insure loss of electricity since most lines are overhead and so many are running through heavily treed areas.

We've had a little over an inch of very heavy, wet snow early this morning. It has stopped but I don't know if it's a temporary hiatus or we are done for the day. Several different internet weather sites say it is supposed to continue through the morning and into early afternoon and that we might get as much as four inches.

It would be fine with me if we are done and get no more and there is no need to shovel any.

Southern New England is "bracing" (according to weather reports, lol) for 5"8" of snow today. Right now at 8:00 am the day is very dark indeed, looks like evening. Many folks were out in their driveways yesterday testing their snowblowers, and the markets were crowded last eve. We've got the wood stove if power goes out and I've got the head lamps at hand. The Farmers' Almanac predictions so far are accurate: early snow. This harkens back to the day when the (originally Thanksgiving) song "Over the River and Through the Woods to Grandmothers House..." with the horse pulling the sleigh through snow, so I guess this is not a climate change effect.

The pause in the snowfall was very short lived and we have surpassed the forecast amounts of 1 -3 inches or 2 - 4 inches, depending on which website one consulted. I just took measurements in a couple of places and we're at a bit over 5 inches. Enough already. In fact, more than enough in my book.

It's so dark that it almost looks like night. We are on the coast so are not supposed to get much snow, mostly rain, but they can be wrong.

I need to go to the grocery store and to Marshall's. Hubby makes great pie crusts but I have to buy flour first!!!!!
