There is a three foot drift against my back door and it will not open.
We have about 2 feet now and some snow is still falling and blowing around. The forecast is for another few inches.
For those of you who have never experienced deep snow fall, I can only try to explain the hush, the whisper, the eerie ...
"...And, when the second morning shone,

Read Whittier's "Snowbound"Whittier's homestead stills stands and is a historical site open to the public in Haverhill, MA, between here and the coast, and is snowbound again today. Or read Robert Frost.
Although are lights flickered on and off last night several times due to wind gusts, we have not lost power. There are 400,000 outages reported in my state, most of them closer to the coast.
Our street is not plowed. There is a travel ban in effect in my state while the plows and emergency and power crews try to do their work.
One of our sons who lives in western MA took a personal day off from work in anticipation of the storm and came home on Thursday night so he is he is out there with a shovel clearing an emergency path to the street.
It is silent in the city today.
A good day to stay in and handsew the binding on my quilt.
Have a happy quilty day!
