More Snow and We Have Nowhere To Put It!

It's another whopper of a storm! Not all the snow from the last blast left us, before this one added another 18 inches or so to the heap. AND I hear there may be another on Monday. If we get more snow, I'm not sure where it will go - we'll have to eat it!

Yes, it's true. Paula Deen actually has a recipe for snow ice cream. It's here. And to be sure that your snow is safe to eat - put some in a coffee filter and let it melt. If there are no particles left in the coffee filter after the water runs through, your snow is good for eating. Needless to say, stay away from the yellow stuff - LOL!

DH just saw a big green flash in the sky - someone might have hit an electric pole and blew a transformer. I hope that, if that's the case, no one was hurt. DH took a walk around the block a while ago and said the roads are really bad. He's about to go out to clear the driveway and sidewalk for the third time today.

The photo above was taken not long after the second cleanup session on the car and driveway.

And I heard that Captain Phil of the Cornelia Marie, from the TV show "The Deadliest Catch" passed away. The Deadliest Catch was one of my favorite shows. Those fishermen worked so hard for a living - they are rough and foul-mouthed at times, but they are an interesting bunch. Captain Phil was one of my favorites. My condolences to his family and friends.

My 'puter has been really slow the last couple of days, and I got the "blue screen of death" this afternoon. Hoping it doesn't quit on me.


  1. Snowmageddon. How about Snowma-GO.AWAY!
    Snow ice cream, this is one more reason for me to love Paula Deen. I was just checking out her cookware on sale at Target. I would love a new set when we move.
    Captain Phil, so sad. We love that show & he was a favorite. Don't tell Capn' Sig, but we liked Phil more - he was more down to earth & very real, didn't play to the camera's. He will be missed!

  2. back when I was a kid we actually got a few snows a year and Momma always made snow cream. Oh my goodness it is soooo good.

  3. I grew up in NH, spent a few years in MN and now in Ohio (where it's snowing AGAIN) and I've never had snow ice cream!
