This stormy winter continues

First and most important, Happy Valentines Day to my wife Sandra.  This is our 55th, including 52+ years of marriage, together.  I pray we have many, many more.

Yesterday's snow ended early last evening and changed over to sleet then rain throughout the night.  Our plow guy cleaned the yard about 7:30 last night and it remained clear this morning, but a little icy.  He did come back during the night to clean up somewhat.

We ended up with about 8 inches in the Greater Portland area, depending on whether it was measured inland or at the coast.  Totals away from Portland are still growing as the storm continues elsewhere in the state.

The winter weather stuff isn't over, yet, though.  More snow is forecast for Saturday into Sunday and then even still more for mid next week.

It's too dark outside to get any pictures if I get the "guts" to attempt to go out later.  If so, I'll post one here but you've seen snow in my yard for several years.

Sandra works part time Fridays and headed out for work about 5:30 this morning.  She called ten minutes later and said the street on which we live was miserable, but it connects to U.S. Route 1 and she said that roadway was O.K.  She arrived at work safely.

Because of the weather, I doubt our daughter and her puppy will be here so her dog and ours can romp in our large this weekend.  I do look forward to her visits.

Have a great weekend.
