Yeah, guess which one I chose..?


Party was a great get-together...lots of food, chili, gumbo, jambalaya, beignets...not to mention the usual chips etc for snacking. I brought along a bottle of Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Bourbon, which fit the theme nicely

Not only that, but as some people left, we put the Leafs game on the big-screen, and watched a rather one-sided affair, 6-0 Leafs over Habs! Girls had fun running wild, waching movies. DW made it after the festival for eats and conversation..

Snow in Niagara Falls and bufflo wasn't to bad at all....
Once we got out of buffalo, there was absolutely no snow, or any indication a storm had happens or was happening.

We pulled into Randall's place just after 5:00 pm.
Was great meeting him, Jodi, and he grandkids. Really!!!!
The kids all got alog great, and Randall was an awesome host.
Thanks for the warm welcome Randall... Just more evidence that although we are all for different walks of life, and became friends over a Internet forum, some real good friendships have been fostered.

Great job guys. I see the penguins recognize their Supreme Leader

Morning Guys,

The storm has passed and we have a nice sunny morning here. I guess I will have to clean out the driveway and dog run this morning.

Obviously I can... But I think that's a little extreme, don't you?

Hey guys. We made it though the storm OK! CT got hit really hard. There are many places that aren't even plowed yet. We have 1 lane on our road and I'm sure schools in out town will be canceled tomorrow. I heard that some schools are going to be off till Wednesday or Thursday. We are supposed to get rain tomorrow, which is gonna make a mess, then it is gonna get cold again meaning all those snow piles are gonna freeze. My dad called me from church and said don't bother trying to go, there was no place to park with only 1 lane roads and no parking lots plowed.

I need to clear off one part of my roof that has a 4ft drift on it. With the rain coming, it is gonna get really heavy.

I'll post some pictures tonight once I get them off my camera.

Nice to hear from you Paul. My back is killing me.

You should stop down in the summer. I'll take the boat out, you can fish and I can drink like a fish.

I tried. The world is fully of them. Only 5 more shifts.





If it has to be cold, might as well have lots of snow. Sounds fun.
Congratulations to the girls. All of our games were cancelled due to the weather this weekend. Hoping to find time to make them up before the end of the season.

We have completed 2 forts on either side of the road. Each with cover walls, one tower and a few secret rooms. Perfect for some serious snow ball battles. The kids are out digging some new tunnels and sledding on the back hill. It's in the 30's so not too cold.

Good luck in the auction today. Let us know what the haul was later on.

We had one snow drift that buried our van. Forts on both sides of the street have been built and we'll have daily snow ball fights until the snow is gone. Woo-hoo! Hope all stay safe and have power. We never lost ours, but there were a lot of people on the coast without power.
Glad you made it through OK too Jim!

Have a great cruise! Unfortunately as we are approaching page 250, you'll have to find us on the new thread when you get back. We'll make sure to mention you often in our posts in honor of your time away.

Nice to hear from you Paul. My back is killing me.

We are pretty much plowed out. I have 12 year old and a snow blower so it saves the back and muscles from too much pain. Glad everyone is safe. We are getting rain as well. Should be a rough few days with the thawing and refreezing.

Paul, I think my house is on the way and you could pick me up. Just saying.
