Behind the mall all this crow wants for Christmas is an easy meal
Needless to say there weren't many shoppers out. Mostly men or couples. There were some women, but nothing like there would have been were it a regular Sunday before Christmas. Last night was an absolute zoo at Barnes and Noble!
So check this guy out. The town our local mall is located in won't let businesses put up temporary signs so these guys get paid to stand outside all day holding a Sale sign. Even in a 15 degree, blinding snow storm. What you can't see is that over behind the next pole is another guy holding a sign too. I hope that job pays well!
This is what it looked like just after I left the mall area. I don't think the heavy stuff will come down for quite a while ; )
Okay, we're much closer to home now and the snow is getting a little bit heavier. You're wearing your seatbelt, right? Don't be scared, I'm a good driver. We still have to pick my daughter up at work so I'll be able to clean some of the ice off my windshield wipers there. Once we get home I'll light a Balsam Fir Village Candle and we can have a cup of vanilla coffee.
Isn't the snow beautiful! THIS is a New England Winter. Makes you all warm and fuzzy inside, doesn't it?
Both Elise and Lily love the snow so this is a natural fit. The snowballs were so bad between Lily's toes she was limping when they came inside.

Looking out our back storm door yesterday morning after Friday/Saturday's storm. Don't worry, most of it is from blowing and drifting. The dogs are always a little perplexed about this and can't figure out why I won't open the door! At this point they have to go out the door in the garage which at times looks the same way, but at least the shovel is right there for me.
And along comes the dogs hero! Yesterday morning he was up at 5:00 am to clear the driveway, the back walkway, and a path for the dogs with the snowthrower, then he shoveled the whole back deck off. It must have been around 5:30 am when I took this picture. After that, he was off to work. If it were me, I would have been in traction!

After my husband left for work I got dressed and took Lily with me for a little ride around the local area in hopes of getting some nice snow pictures. I came up empty. There just wasn't room to pull over on the side of the road without taking my chances someone might slide into me. Another day.
Tomorrow morning I will finally finish all my shopping! Yipee! I only hope school isn't cancelled, again. Yes, I do believe it's going to be a very white Christmas!!!
*I'd like to apologize for being so behind on stopping by other blogs, and acknowledging Awards. I'm trying to catch up but as most of you know, it's a crazy time right now. Thank you for understanding.
