Garden Tuesday: After the Blizzard

So, within 125 miles of me, Philadelphia got a foot of snow, New York city got 2 feet, and New Jersey approached 3 feet. My paper claims we got 5" of snow.

Does this look like 5" of snow to you? It has not been plowed.

Here's Thor's footprint in the 5" of snow, alongside mine.

OK, my footprint is a little odd looking, because I was wearing my new Rocket Dog shoes. Here's a picture, because I know those gents in the over 125 year old set love the flash of a well turned ankle. Or maybe just because my lady friends are always looking for new shoes to love.
How much snow did all of you get?

Too much to be flouncing about in red shoes for sure. Yikes.

Love the shoes. We were buried and then it all turned to rain...washed most away. We're on Cape Cod...off Cape it never changed and the snow? It piled up - most areas got over a foot.

I do miss the snow so much. :)

We have not had a flake and I am so sad! Those shoes are gorgeous as is your well turned ankle! You are a beautiful woman and I can surely see how you stay happily married! wink wink!

Not sure - I think I did see one flurry flake on Sunday morning. The sky was cloudy and it certainly felt cold enough at the time.

We got about as much as you did, maybe more. When I went out in it, I wore boots, not adorable red shoes.

Well apparently you got enough snow the mailman couldn't come - he sent your christmas card back to me.

Those shoes are amazing! I can't believe you wore them in the snow!!! g

You have ruby slippers!!

We got just a frosting of snow, less than an inch. It lasted a day and now we have mud.

When I see your shoes, I think: "There's no place like home!" They are very pretty, but definitely not snow foot wear!
I agree with you, your Blizzard seems easy to handle!

Darling Shoes! I think I'd likely fall off a heel that high.

No snow here, of course, quite a bit of rain, high humidity and high temps while I was away. Thankfully Xmas day was cooler with a lovely strong wind to keep it all cooler as I cooked a full-on roast dinner.

Am back home and counting down the hours until I pick up my dear Zebby Cat:the Daft.

Swoon. Those are awesome shoes.

We got about 3". Which is to say... about double what you have? However, since your beloved knows the area pretty well, Tidewater got in excess of a foot.

I want some comments from the 125 year olds. You know, I think Thor's foot is bigger than yours.

(No snow, but I believe we got about 20 inches of rain up here.)
