Hey Pretty

Yes - that's me.
Purdy - ain't I? It's not my dorkiest look - you've all seen that before. No - this is my 10 days before Spring look!!!!!

But it's warm. Denton got the Carhartt coat while working in the UP. I think they have winter until June or something, so I shouldn't complain - but I probably will.

Yes - Cleveburgh is all over the national news because of this storm. Yesterday I cleared over 20" of snow. I don't even know what's out there at this point, but it looks like another 2-3".

You can (kind of) see some of the swaths I made yesterday. Always fun to clear (say with dripping sarcasm).

I did call to check on my parents, but they have no power. Again.

And no doubt too stubborn to go anywhere or ask for assistance - not that they should go anywhere or could ask. My father in in infinite wisdom got a 'deal' on his cable, which includes digital phone. But when the power goes out - so does the phone service. I had to call my brother-in-law to go check on them and if possible, pick them up and take them back to his house.

So now I'm having a fit that no one could get ahold of them or vice versa. And that I will now have to force them to get normal phone service so they can dial 9-1-1 if needed. For g-d's sake, they are in their 80s! ...and it's not like my dad hasn't used that emergency service three times in the last two years.

Parents! You can't live with 'em and can't kill 'em. ....unless of course your Lyle or Eric Menendez.
