    Default Be Careful What You Wish For

    Hello All,

    You know the old saying, "Be Careful What You Wish For, You Just Might Get It". Well, two days ago we had no snow on the ground. I was thinking how it would be nice to have a white Christmas. Here on the coast of Maine, it's not always a guarantee that we'll have snow on the ground for the 25th, unlike the inland of Maine, which gets heavy snow pretty much all the time. We get more rain than anything. That is, until yesterday.

    I got up to my wish, and then some. I got my front door open and stuck a yardstick into the snow and it disappeared! 3 1/2 feet of snow in one storm. It took over three hours to get my driveway cleared out with the snowblower, and even then, without four wheel drive getting anywhere would be nearly impossible. So, be careful what you wish for!

    Rob

    Default snow

    we got almost 2 feet in that snazzy little storm, but living in New York we are used to it. I have to say though it's turning out to be a winter like my childhood days. Kind of miss knowing we'll have snow on Christmas. Still not sure this year. We have about 2 feet out there now but it's supposed to be 45 and rainy all day tomorrow. So I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Don't think I'll wish for snow though seeing as what happend to you.

    Hi Rob,

    Hugs,

    Ah Rob!

    May all your Christmas's be white....

    We'll have a pretty white one too - about 6 inches on the ground and more predicted every day for the next several.

    I remember the blizzards of 78/79, when we had as much as 5 or 6 FEET of snow on the ground at once, so I understand what you're thinking as you look out on the "winter wonderland."

    Thank heaven it has warmed up a tad here - we're in the double digits today, I think around 15 or 20 F. And....it is snowing again. Like crazy!

    May everyone here have a Christmas filled with warmth, free of pain, and if you WANT a white Christmas, come visit Rob in Maine or me in Illinois!

    Angel, I STILL do at least one snow angel every year, and I'm over 50. Decided I needed to do it as long as possible. Haven't gotten in this season's angel, when the snow was right, my cold was in high gear.

    So...now that I'm feeling better, I know that this snow will have ANGELS in it within the next day or two!

    Hi Rob;
    I guess that your wish for a white Christmas made it here to Southern California. Last week, we had the biggest snow fall that we've ever experienced. Where I live, we got about 1 1/2 feet of snow. People in other areas of the High Desert got up to 3 feet of snow and many were housebound for 2-3 days because the roads were snowed in. My best friend's sons had to ride their horses to meet us at the main road so that we could get groceries to them. I'd send you a picture, but I have no idea how to insert pictures here The snow is just starting to melt and everyone seems to have finally dug themselves out.
    I suppose this proves just how powerful you are and how your words come to life :lol:

    Peace and Blessings
