New Year's Eve

The weather has been very crazy here in the Northeast. I am going to recap the month of December for our area of New York:

12/12 - The ice storm and no power for 4 days.

12/19-21 - Three constant days of snow for a total of 18".

12/28-29 -Heat wave! The temperature was in the high 50s. Needless to say, we lost all the snow. This equates to lots of lovely mud .

Last night, 12/30, was bitter cold and today we received another 7.5" of snow. With the cold, the roads are still messy since the salt doesn't work too well. The low tonight is +5F, but wind chill will make it below zero.

Tonight, we're home. There is a nice fire in the fireplace. The dogs are all milling about, playing with their toys and having fun. What more can you ask for?

Happy New Year everyone!!
