30+ Inches......Phew!!!!

I have not had much time for stamping.  NEMO, the historic blizzard, hit Connecticut with hurricane force winds, thundersnow, and snow falling sometimes at a rate of 5-6 inches an hour.  During and after the storm, my shovel was permanently attached to my hand/arm.  If I wasn't helping with the driveway, I was shoveling snow off the bushes or shoveling out a 'toilet area' for our dogs.  We went out 3 times Friday night and several times on Saturday before we got it all done.  We had a total of 30 - 36 or so inches.......hard to tell as the wind was blowing it all around.  In the dogs' toilet area, I shoveled at least 50 inches (or more) as drifting snow would fill it in quickly.  Incredible!!!!  One very positive thing for us was that even though our lights blinked, we never lost power.  Sadly, this morning it was 0 degrees, and there were thousands who still did not have power.  Let's hope that ends for them very soon......I can't even imagine no heat in this weather!!!

I do not have pictures to share as I was too busy shoveling.  When I did think about pictures, the sun was already setting.

However.....today I am sharing some cards I made in recent weeks for challenges at SCS.  I am not going to give details.......just sharing the cards....if you have questions, just ask in your comment.

Your cards are all beautiful, Joanne. Glad you shared them on your blog as I had not seen most of them.

What a snow! They had to be cold and frustrating trying to keep a place for your dogs to go.
Oh, it's too cold to be without power. I feel so bad for those people..very unsafe, especially for some. Hope it is restored very soon. Be extra careful out there shoveling.

I am glad you survived the blizzard, Joanne!! You must be one strong foe against that swirling snow with your shovel in hand!!
Your cards are gorgeous...I especially love the black and white combination with the yellow roses. Very striking!
