Our Storm Of The Century©

My Poem of the Day


As if waking from a nightmare

We woke to the end of yet a third storm

It brought us

Two more feet of snow

Impassable streets and roads

Parking bans

Deplorable T Service

Cancelled flights

Collapsing Roofs

Chaotic supermarkets

Bare  store shelves

School closings

Days off from work

Talk of cancelled April Vacations

Snow plow deaths

Missing Pets

Inaccessible fire hydrants

Burning homes

Fire related deaths

Skidding Cars

On the bright side…

We now have snow for skiing into April

Picturesque views

And free partitions from unwanted viewers

And 2nd place for the snowiest month of snow

While we are breaking records

And praying for no more significant snow

Our friendly groundhog has gone into hiding

Uncertain whether he’ll show his face at all next year

We are wondering

If our trains will ever fully recover

If we will ever get to enjoy a family vacation any time soon


If we will be able to look back on this winter without contempt

If you were lucky to survive then be glad that you saw first hand

A record-breaking Winter no one will soon forget

25 astonishing photos from record-setting winter

Changes limit streets to one-way traffic

Boston roads still treacherous for pedestrians traffic

Kerry fined $50 for failing to clear snow from the side of his Beacon Hill mansion

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 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!
