1. Wicked funny! I have to send that to my sister, who lived in MA for 35 years...

...and is now in downstate New York. She is fine with snow -- I'm not going anywhere near it, thank you.

All you Northeasterners stay safe and warm!

You choose.

Hopefully you will have something to keep you warm in the case that power fails.

Bundle up. And find somebody you love to cuddle with. That would be my advice.

Hope you are well.

left wrist for a long time from shoveling snow the wrong way when I was back in New York.

It finally got okay.. Thank Goodness!

where is it going? They're saying it was overhyped.. but, safe than sorry. And, nothing's perfect.. especially not weather forecasting.

38. Should be 'Pahk Yah Cah'... Lol!- Still cute though, Cha.

Despite having lived in the Northeast for over 35 years, I'm not originally from here. I remember not understanding half of what people said for the first couple of years.

Weirdly, there is only about 2 inches of snow where I am. I hear that Boston and other coastal areas got walloped, but up here in inland Maine, it's mostly just 'wicked' bad wind so far. I'm shocked that there is still electricity and internet! Both of those things often go out for much less than this. Or even for no apparent reason at all!

It's snowing hard now, and we are are under a warning until tomorrow morning, so there may be much more to come. We shall see... More snow is very much needed. Only have about a foot of snow-pack so far, and the skiing/snowmobile industries are suffering for it.

Last year at this time, I couldn't see out my windows.

39. I know.. I remember seeing pics of back Northeast and talking to my sister in the Adirondacks

about how bad it was last year, PotatoChip!

I was the same way when I came to Hawaii.. not being able to understand what the Locals were saying for awhile.. but, the longer you hear something the easier it gets. Interesting how many dialects there are around the country .. and it's all English.. or variations thereof.. slang and all.

Glad you still have the internet.. I don't like it when that goes out. lol And, I hope it does snow enough so people can play and the snow industry can be put to work!

Pahk yah cah! Stay Safe and Warm ya Hearties!

Still, I'd love to be where you are right now! The thought of warm, gorgeous Hawaii is something I can only dream about... Sigh.
