Nor'Easter Took A Wrong Turn...

Were there no signs letting this Nor' Easter know that it had somehow taking a wrong turn a mile or two back down the road a piece?! Now I ask you... does New Hampshire look like Oswego, New York... *rolling eyes*

Yesterday WMUR News 9 was warning New Hampshire of an impending Nor'Easter that would leave us with anywhere from 12 to 24 inches of snow starting after midnight. Well... who really knew... they've certainly been wrong before! *wink* I decided that stockpiling the pantry with a few groceries wouldn't be fool hardy, finishing up Valentine's shopping... just in case and of course a trip to visit my friends Betty and Liz over at Stamping Memories... after all one must get their priorities right if one is to be snowed in for a day! *wink*

When we awoke at 5 AM this morning we had been upgraded to a Blizzard Watch and were now expecting 15 to 30 inches in our area with 30 mile per hr winds by noontime. Dave decided that he could use a day off from work. All of New Hampshire's school's were closed!

We started our day off with French toast in the shape of hearts, slathered in butter and a generous portion of REAL maple syrup... YUM, YUM! *wink* Then I started working on printing and cutting the names for our blog candy give-a-way. I thought I'd snap a photo of Sophie drawing the winning names, but the camera batteries were deader than a doornail... UGH!!!! Didn't something like this happen around New Year's day?! Oh, well... I'll just have to wait until later to update my blog, if we don't experience a power outage! Those were my thoughts. The camera batteries were finally charged and it was starting to get dark when I snapped this photo of the severe weather to share with all of you. Well, wouldn't you know along came a state plow truck and do you think he'd slow down to pose for you? The snow wouldn't cooperate either... the nerve...

Due to the weather... Valentine's has been officially postponed until Saturday for our household! I will still be sharing Valentine's AFTER the fact... hope you won't mind?

Wishing you all a wonderful Valentine's Day! This sure won't be one we'll be forgetting anytime soon...

I look forward to our next visit. Until then...

Oh my gosh! Can you believe the snow that we got after not realy having any this winter? It was beautiful to look at though. ;) You must let me know when you are going to NH Stamping Memories again. If I can go I will meet you there. What fun that would be.

I am so glad we could share some of this joyous 'white' stuff with the rest of the Northeast. I am just a short distance south of Oswego and, well, we have had enough. No school, again, with no unnecesary driving. Hmm, I guess I'll go stamp!! Smiling in Syracuse.
