Cold Restart

My house is back to quiet today. Hubby almost always takes the time between Christmas and New Year’s Day off, but not quite the same days as the kids are on their winter break. He normally goes back to work a day or two before the kids so I get a gradual return to normal. This year, they all went back the same day and it is a bit of a shock.

Still Frozen

I’m well past the 24 hour mark and my Amazon account is still frozen. I was told 24 to 48 hours so I have to stay patient, but I am so not. After a long discussion with Hubby, we decided to just not take the risk and canceled anything that was tied to that account. It was a pain in the ass, but we got it done. I’ve also taken the added precaution to remove that email from any other accounts on the off chance it wasn’t just Amazon. I will never understand some people’s need to be assholes.

And Again

As pretty as the last snowfall was, it didn’t last longer than a day. The temps stayed cold, but the snow was gone. Now we are getting another round. It’s kinda crazy. It is really unusual for us to get anything measurable before Thanksgiving, but we got our first one before Halloween (that one might have broken a record) and we’ve already had a second since then and it looks like we might be working on a third today. It’s going to be one hell of a winter.

Still Iced Over

We had a second round of ice come through. Thankfully neither one was bad enough to cause the kind of damage that previous storms have caused. This time it was just enough to keep the kids home from school and Hubby working from home. Even then, it isn’t going to last long as we are already starting to melt. I’m glad I got out and got my photos taken when I did or I would have missed out. Continue reading “Still Iced Over”

And We Have Ice

It always amuses me that Mother Nature likes to contradict the forecasters so thoroughly. They said we really wouldn’t get much, but we ended up with enough to close schools and coat pretty much everything. At least it stopped before it got bad enough to bring down power lines.

Sadly, my battery died on my camera before I got all I wanted to get.  Between that and trying damn hard to get frostbite on my fingers and nose, I had to come in for a while. BG (did I mention my girl is starting to get into photography?) and I will both be going back out once we warm back up and my battery is charged again . So many pretties to capture!
