Snow totals by town

Today, 25 years ago, I was fortunate enough to give birth to my second child (Alicia). She is a beauty and I am more than proud to call her my own. She was born at 3:15 on super bowl Sunday in Laconia NH. She came with is on a cold winters day. I remember hearing women screaming from room to room not understanding why. My Alicia knocked when she was ready to come out gave a couple of kicks and I basically pushed her out with no screaming. It was a breeze. I was relieved and quite happy and proud all at once. 25 years of an amazing mind brewing, I can’t wait to see what she brings to share with us in the future. Happy Birthday my Alicia!

Believe it or not overnight more snow fell and I spend yet another hour and 45 minutes outside shoveling. It was surprising to me that I didn’t even notice that, that much time had even gone by. Before I knew it, the milk man (Thatcher Farms at ThatcherFarms.com) had made the days deliver. They are amazing, can’t believe they still made it in this weather. They are definitely a life saver and cheerful while being so. Our youngest, pictured below on the left in pink snow-pants and purple coat, along with her friend Josephine and Hannah not pictured helped her grandfather shoveling snow for the second day in a row and fit in some sledding as well. The girls are actually pictured standing on our bench that we had to bury in the snow while shoveling. They enjoyed every minute of the day. We had to bribe Lea home, she just wanted to savor every moment of the days as if she would wake and the snow would somehow be gone (there is no chance of that happening any time soon.

All around the day was a grand success with one more birthday celebration down. Next up are the twins (3/9) and then the youngest (3/30). It feels like there is always something celebrate. I would have to say that is true. Because each day that we live is a celebration in itself.

All is well in just another day in the life of ME!

I missed you yesterday but sometimes even life gets in the way. There is a lot to do when you are preparing to be snowbound for at least 48 hours. There are a lot of provisions that you need and people you need to check on. I was happy to still fit in my morning workout including another 5,582 steps on the WiiFit followed by Yoga. All anyone could and would talk about is snow, snow and more snow. The oldest twin is still upset that her midterm schedule has been upset and that the start of the new quarter will begin two days later.

Yesterday, I kept saying that I didn’t believe that we would get what the by the predicted amount of snow due to the feel in the air. The temperature feels slightly warmer than what it has been in the past when we have had higher amounts of snow. At about 6:30am the snow accumulation looked like this IMG_1322[1]

A couple of more hours passed and it was somewhat worse. IMG_1325[1] Thankfully, it’s nice and soft with the exception for the icy snow the snow plow tosses back at you. It’s been somewhat annoying to have to shovel the fire hydrant in front of our house 6 times already. But it’s better to be safe than sorry. I’m just grateful that the town is actually good about plowing our street. I know some streets in Medford often unattended to for hours even more than 24 hours, which I don’t like knowing that My mother-in-law, and sister-in-law live there and two out of the three are diabetics. This is not good in an emergency! Every street matters.

Please keep in mind that the snow ban is still in effect for most, while having been lifted for some. For those of you driving, please drive safely!

In the midst of all the snow, I learned about the death of a wonderful, warmhearted, skilled man known as Sidewalk Sam Bob Guillemin, also known as “Sidewalk Sam,” created chalk and paint artwork in the streets. It’s devastating when anyone dies, but hurts slightly more when it is someone with such talent and with such kindness of heart wanting only to make others happy. I’m hopeful that he along with all those loving friends and family members that he now leaves behind can find peace and comfort as he journeys on in his new home in the heavens.

Onward with the day, stay safe, be helpful, and stay smart!

All is well in just another day in the life of ME!
