Aw, bless.

This morning, I woke up to reports on Facebook from friends in New York, Connecticut and Massachussets who were digging out from upwards of 2 feet of snow, 3 in some places.

Later we went out to do some grocery shopping and came across this brilliant headline in one of today’s papers.


Yikes! Were we in for the same storm as the North East of America? Would we need to stock up on milk and bread?

When we got back home, we checked the weather forecast, brows furrowed, snow shovels at the ready.

And it’s true – snow hell really is on the way; apparently we’re due for anywhere between 1 to 4 inches!

If you don’t hear from me again, you’ll know why. Snowmageddan.

  1. BWAH, made me laugh as well. We got more than that in one hour last night, it was falling 4 – 6 inches per hour!! Well .. be careful, don’t hurt yourselves shoveling, stay warm! Snow hell is .. well, hell.

    • I was watching the storm Susan. It looked really bad and I’m glad you kept power and didn’t get any trees down. Those were always my two big fears in storms like that..

    • Not by American standards. We have had snow this year but the deepest was about 4 inches. And because the climate is a little milder in winter, it melts quite quickly. The country isn’t prepared for snow storms the way America is, because it’s still relatively unusual here, so we don’t have the army of ploughs. As a result, the roads can be messier than in America during a storm and trains/buses are often disrupted. I think that’s what the ‘hell’ refers to. But to be honest, our road was ploughed within about 4 hours last time, so we really don’t have anything to complain about here in my area.
