The thing I love the most about a good New England winter
is that the sky will take on a color that you rarely see.
This photo captured that color perfectly.
|Home sweet buried Home.|

Obviously, Lila is a New England Girl, even
though she was born and rescued in California
|It's not all lollipops and roses, just ask Dave|
Not lost on me are the difficulties that this weather has brought to the lives of thousands of people. It definitely is not all lollipops and roses. The public transit system in Boston is shut down and people cannot get to work. A vast majority of those people are not going to receive any type of pay checks for all of those lost days. Billions of dollars have been lost by businesses. Peoples' cars and homes have been damaged, people have gotten hurt, some have died.
Now it's time to pray for a slow, moderate melt. If that's not the case, then the winter of 2014-2015 will continue to give and give, in the form of drainage problems and flooded basements. We have a drainage system surrounding the outside of our house, and in our basement we have a perimeter drain and sump pumps. We will not flood. Others will.
