Enough already!

It's been a hard day, and the weather forecast isn't helping.

There's another winter storm coming, with 1-3 inches of wet snow predicted to start late tomorrow night, 4-8 inches more during the day Thursday, and other 3-6 inches of heavy snow Thursday night. That adds up to 8-17 inches. Like last time, I'm getting off easy; friends in Middleton (MA) are looking at 15-27 inches.

When I shoveled out the 10-16 inches awaiting my return from ConFusion, and the 6 inches that followed that, and the 4 inches that followed that, I only tackled half my driveway — enough for my one car — and a path to my front door. Over the weekend, as things started melting, I started a path along the side of the garage back toward the propane tanks and oil fill spout behind the house. Looks like I'd better finish the first pass on that before the snow starts falling again. Getting rid of the rest of the snow remaining in the driveway wouldn't hurt either.

I'm well stocked on food, and even have plenty of milk for cocoa. But I may just get out while the getting's good on Wednesday afternoon, and see what comfort items the markets have to offer. Recent discoveries on that front: rotisserie boneless leg of lamb, yum. Rotisserie beef ribs worked well, too. Seedless black grapes were on sale last week; I like them even better than seedless reds.

The good news is that I have a great plowguy. So I won't be snowed in for long. And the whole place is new enough that snow here is still pretty. But enough is, well, enough. And this winter has brought more than enough our way. Much more!
