The Snowstorm Chronicles - Saturday at Noon

The snow slowed down a bit this morning, but it's snowing very hard at noon. We still have several hours of snow to go.

My mother in-law just called with the most pathetic news of the day. My sister in-law lost power in her St. Mary's County home, and she asked my mother in-law to take care of her farm on Farmville so the crops wouldn't die. Being a Farmville newbie, my mother in-law called my wife and said, "I fertilized and chased the raccoons away, but you need to harvest her crops!" She provided my sister-in-law's password. Sounds like a Facebook profile photo change is in order for my sister-in-law.

Here is the completely unscientific Bowie measurement at noon - 22.5 inches.

My car on Saturday at noon.


  1. Hang in there Bowie Mike. I have been out a couple of times for shoveling. Gotta do all this in shifts. I sure wish I was in my 20's again.

  2. Your sister-in-law's farm is key to avoiding cabin fever... don't be hatin'!

  3. Dickster, yeah, definitely feeling a little sore tonight.

    Anonymous, no hate here. I love all my sisters in-law!

  4. Don't drink the haterade, Bowie Mike... we feel the love, now go feed our chickens....!
