Brrr… blizzard!

blustery blizzardy backyard
little woods in snow

Just a few days ago it was nearly 70… now it’s freezing and the cold wind is whipping up into a genuine nor’easter. It’s hard to capture in a photo, but snow is whirling everywhere. Of course, this is only a temporary setback. It’s really spring, right?

If you’re in New England, New York, PA, etc, I hope you’re happily warm inside with something good simmering on the stove. It’s a perfect night for a hot pot of bean soup!

Time enough to dig out tomorrow.

    We have a decent pile of snow outside. Neighbors are all outside. Blog browsing first, snow shovelling comes second in this house : )
    I had the misfortune to actually drive in the snow. It was crazy…

    Eek, Gini, glad you made it home ok! Driving in the snow is no fun, I know — I love my little subaru and its front-wheel drive. Blog browsing was first with me, too 🙂

    Linda, we were spared, we got about an inch of the white stuff and it almost gone. Hyacinth Beans?

    You are the winner, ISG! And happy to see you won a snow-free day, almost 😉

    Hi Sandeepa — here in New England it’s kind of like they say in Chicago — if you don’t like the weather, wait a minute…. 😉

    Hi Rahin, thanks and glad to see you made it home safe, if a little late (4 hours!). I was lucky and left work early Friday. Got well over a foot of snow here. Are you in downtown Boston?

    Hi Sushma, Nupur also has a couple of recipes for the whole val, on her One Hot Stove. Try them sometime, I am sure you would like! 🙂
