A Winter Storm, Oh No!



Friends and loved ones have been calling all day, asking if we’re OK.  The weather is varying to say the least, and while we are getting snow, we aren’t getting the ice that is making a lot of the state and south of us treacherous, so yes, we are OK.

With the media making THE WEATHER one big, bad monster, I just want to say that I love the four seasons, and I love snow.

Especially the kind that makes it look like a New England postcard, the kind that it is coming down covering everything right now.  And the kind that will be gone in a day or so.

The only weather site I will look at is Ray’s Weather, since he is like a big brother (not Big Brother) telling me what to expect, without the fear factor.  Thank you Ray.

It’s quiet out.  No on is on the streets.  Everyone is going to be staying at home tonight, reading, watching movies, coloring, sitting next to a fire with a cat on their lap, and eating some warm and comforting food.  Oh, and we will all sleep in tomorrow morning.  The whole town.  Nice.



Cleaning up some of my photos this afternoon, I came across the ones from the Beach taken this past October.  I loved looking at them, and remembering…

The feel of the water on my bare feet, and the quiet that I felt with the sound of the ocean around all the time.

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall.

Yeah, I love it all.

(Hey, I think I just wrote a poem 🙂 )


About Sadhvi

Sadhvi's trying to find the balance in life over 50 without having any surgery, taking any pills, or killing anyone. She doesn't want to look or feel the way she felt when she was 20 or 30. Trusting that everything is really OK unless you think about it helps her make it through each day. Also realizing that nothing can be done, and, that nothing matters really helps. Gardening (and weeding), poppies and flowers, painting on things, baking, and sharing on Oops50 helps to make it all right too.

    Hi Sadhvi …

    Loved what you wrote about the weather. There is something so special about snow …. It carries such a silence with it ….
    To be able to stay inside and just sink in …..

    Lots of love

  2. Hi Pam, yes, it seems like it has been many years since the ground has even frozen, or that we’ve had such a snow accumulation. I am glad for it, since the gardener in my knows it will help with the bad bugs that need this kind of cold…the poison ivy might be less too 🙂 Are you even thinking of the garden yet? I am going to get tomato starts from a local girl in Oakley, ones that are resistant to the blight. That much I know. Oh, the beauty of it all!

  3. Snow! Almost a foot out here, I think. I like it but I also like it to get clear in a couple of days so life as I live it can go on without much of a hitch. Ha, right?

  4. I totally agree! It’s really wonderful to finally have some snow. Seems like it has been several years since we’ve had anything over a couple of inches. Woke up this morning to absolute quiet – like there was a big fluffy down guilt covering our house and the town and indeed there is in the form of an 8+” blanket of snow. Grateful we have power and heat and don’t really have to go anywhere, especially since it has just started snowing again. (Love Ray’s Weather too!) Enjoy!
