1:30 am, 4 inches and counting...

at last check on the weather channel, many,many hours ago 6-8" were expected...again.

 Amanda made it home OK, Tom lied to us about there being snow in Philly this am, and early afternoon (which is when the POLICE out there said he should have left if he wanted to get home safely)  We called him, caught him the lie, and more, told him we spoke to the Police precinct 1.5 miles from his location...they got  about 2" of snow in the am yesterday and then it was washed away by rain and sleet and was slush, but the temp. was dropping and they were expecting 8", this was at 6pm, we told him to leave then, and Ron told him he better be here by 10pm, well he didn't answer his cell after hanging up on us a couple of times (mad at us for catching him in a lie...he's in our only running vehicle right now)

He is STILL not home, and not answering his cell. I am pissed AND nervous! (3:20am)

anyway, here are some pics I took out the porch door at 1:30am (Kodak easy share, and outside flood light only)

 Wind chimes

Snow shovel handle, right outside the door

I do NOT miss the snow at all. Lived too many years in snow country. Now I have rain. All I want is sunshine. LOL Hope your son makes it home.

Love the pictures... Hope he made it home okay... My poor unemployed 25 year old son was to use my car for a job interview in NYC today. I told him to reschedule.. We are not dug out and NYC got more snow than us.

We had some wicked winds howling, snow and hail accompanied with thunder and lightning. Crazy cold. Your photos are beautiful but I hope you were able to catch up on your sleep and that Tom made it home safely. The worries of motherhood never end regardless of your son's age.

Your Friend,
Deborah

Oh dear, hope he gets home ok...

To put a little perspective on it, we get storms like that several times a month out here, but we are prepared for them and expect them.

I used to live near Philadelphia and remember how bad it got during the storms...

Hi Susan!

As for the snow you can keep it we have had the terrible cold here!
