Snow, again.

 This year, I bought a snowblower, affectionately named Jethro.  And of course, when I got the snowblower, everyone joked around about how we probably wouldn't get any snow this year, or for the next 5 years, and Jethro would just sit in the garage, unused.

Well, boy, were they wrong!

Last night, NY got walloped with another snowstorm.  This is about our 3rd or 4th storm of the winter season, and 2nd major one.  About 12" to 14" inches fell in my neck of the woods.  And the snow from the previously storms was still around in huge piles, as we haven't had much rain, or warm weather to help it melt.

This is sort of a crazy winter!  I thought I'd post a few visuals for all of my flist friends in other parts of the country or world.














And though this isn't part of the snowstorm, I end this with my cat Flynn.  One basket is just not enough to hold so much cat!!

Wow! Look at all the beautiful pictures you posted! Almost makes me want to be there but then I start thinking about my upcoming 60 degree weekend and I have decided that I'd rather be here. LOL!

I love the facial expression of your cat - it's almost like: WTF mom? Another picture?

In other news: New Smallville tomorrow and I KNOW you are thrilled to have Chloe back. y/y? *cracks up*

Stay safe and warm.

Oh, believe me, you don't want to be here. Its such a massive pain in the ass. Everyone is so snow-weary.

Actually, I don't take a ton of pics of my cats. But yes, that does seem to be what his expression is suggesting, LOL

Did you hear? No new Smallville tomorrow. It was pushed back a week for TVD and Nikita reruns. So, its another week to wait.

As for Chloe's return, I'm not even sure I care so much anymore. Frankly, some of the spoilers about Lois are more depressing for me then Super Hero Chloe!

Gorgeous pictures.

Off topic, but where is a good forum to talk about Tom Welling? A decent fan-board with good traffic and the moderators aren't nazis?

Thanks,

Re: O/T
Thanks :)

I would recommend Tom Welling Unlimited
http://www.tomwellingunlimited.com/index.php

Its not a ton of traffic, but its got a nice flow. Lately, there's a lot of Clois stuff in the episode forums, which I find a bit off-putting, but the moderating is good, and the people are solid Tom fans. That would be your best bet, I think :)

That is an amazingly gorgeous cat.





Oh, and nice snow, too.

Flynnie sends his thanks (and also adds "I know")

Nice snow? You want some of it?

Flynn is a big gorgeous boy! He looks so cuddly.

At least the snow LOOKS pretty!

Flynn is cuddly, when he wants to be. Affection is always done on his time table.

Snow it beautiful, at first. Then it starts getting dirty, and sitting around in huge piles, and then Ick!

It looks like here! Pretty snow!

And awww, Flynn.

Not so pretty anymore. Evil, Devil Snow!

I love my Flynnie. He's an awesome cat. He'll be 2 in April.

I think you guys have just a tad more on the ground still than we do. We did get another inch or so today, but it was actually a pretty, "big flake" snowfall.

You really do have such a lovely home.

Omg, I can't believe how big Flynn has gotten! It seems like they were just kitties...

I don't mind the snow as long as the temps stay in double-digits. But I'm still anxious for some vacation sunshine.

I like the big flake snow better, because its easier to snowblow, and also, it melts faster. This last snow had a lot of ice and sleet mixed in. I think its going to be around for a while.

Thanks. My house does look like it was meant to be plucked down in the middle of snow. Its a nice house, but its an old house, so its constantly a work in progress.

My Flynn is a BIG boy. And my other cat, Dash, is still a little skinny thing. The size contrast is actually pretty amusing.

The snow LOOKS beautiful, but I know it's a pain in the ass.

Flynn looks very cute stretched out over 2 beds. :-)

I'm very disappointed about no new SV this week, but what can we do? After feeling kind of blah about it all season, it kind of feels par for the course...

It is SUCH a pain in the ass at this point, because there are piles and piles of it everywhere. Makes it hard to park, to pull out of driveways, turning lanes are full of it. Its just an all around hazard.

Flynn loves his cat beds (we have about 7 in the house), but he has a tendency to spill out of them, like there just isn't enough room. Its pretty funny.

And I agree, the delay for SV does seem, somehow, like a reflection of this season.

Your house is gorgeous. It looks like a postcard and kittay!

Thank you. Its much nicer on the outside then it is on the inside, but I'm working on that ;)

It's not the snow we need to watch out for, it's the ice. It might look pretty, but it can be very dangerous.

No kidding! I walked outside this morning, and my back porch was a sheet of ice. Thats going to be a lot of fun!

We had more than enough snow this year, so I am sick of it too. But your house simply looks beautiful snowed in like that. Especially to those like me who don´t have to do the work. LOL

What? You mean you aren't coming over to help me continue to shovel out? What kind of friend are you? LOL

Yes, my house is sort of made for this weather. Though thats not a good enough reason for having this much snow.

All you lucky people with snow. And just complain..
jeannev
Jan. 29th, 2011 02:15 am (UTC)
My all means, I'd be happy to share it with you. Yes, please come over and enjoy my snow! I have a shovel with your name on it. LOL

I think Spring is hiding behind all the damned snow! This freaking snow will still be melting in spring.

You know how many gorgeous pairs of high-heeled boots I can't wear right now due to this snow? Its an outrage. LOL

My Flynnie is a love. He's eccentric, but all great cats are.

That pretty much look like the kind of snow we usually have up here and it stays on the ground for 5 months... Except that we seem to have a lot less snow THIS year for some reason... Oh yeah, I guess it's because the snow goes all in your area. LOL
Wow, Flynn is BIG. One of my tiny persian cats tried one of those big beds and he was lost in the middle of it!
jeannev
Jan. 29th, 2011 05:32 pm (UTC)
OH, so you're the person that sent the snow down to us. Now we know who to blame ;)

We have cat beds of various sizes in the house. These aren't the biggest we have. But Flynn pretty much fills them all out completely. He's about 16-17lbs. He was a peanut when we got him. I don't know what happened, but we like to call him "the cat that ate little Flynnie"

Awwww lookit Flynn all grown up!!! And so pretty!!! Onto the snow....GAH!!!! Living in NJ I am not enjoying the snow anymore. It was fun the first few times but not anymore!
jeannev

I love snow. I really do. But I am completely over it for another year or two.

Yeah, Flynnie is all growed up, and as you can see, expanding rapidly. LOL

Wow, you guys have seen more snow than anyone could bargain for! I wish it was more spread out over the world. We haven't had any snow here in Greece for years. :( Not to mention that Christmas was ridiculously warm. Sometimes I wonder who's more messed up. The climate or the CW. :P

Give Flynn a hug for me. I love cats. I have 4 at the moment, lol. One of them weighs 25 pounds!
jeannev
Feb. 5th, 2011 02:54 pm (UTC)
I wish we could spread it around too. At this point, I just want it to melt and go away. There's still snow everywhere, and its a pain in the butt!

Flynn says thanks for the hug you sent his way. He loves his hugs. 25lbs? Thats a big cat!
