Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice large much of Sumatra Roast, a cuppa tea, hot cocoa or other beverage. Actually, it is afternoon now, not morning. I almost always have you over early, but I’m running behind today. It’s an odd day, sunny, cold but not frigid (above freezing) and the sun is shining brightly off of the snow. Yeah snow… More about that later. Anyway, just in case you didn’t know where we are by the mug and synthesizer at the top of the page, we are in New Hampshire today.
I guess I need to start with weather. Last week I told you a bit about the riding out of the Weather Bomb on Cape Cod. I told you about power outages and generator issues. I drove back to New Hampshire on Sunday and had thought about going back to Cape Cod on Wednesday, but then they changed the forecast. Also, luckily, they decided to put a lot more resources on the power issue, so I received a text that they were planning on having my power back by Monday morning. So on Monday I took a drive down there after work. The power was back, as was Internet, so I was bale to work down there on Tuesday. I drove back to New Hampshire on Tuesday evening. So yes, I did that drive three days in a row.
A new storm came in Wednesday. This one was a snow event. We received over a foot (just under 35 cm) of very wet, heavy snow into Thursday. So I had the fun of cleaning up. It was supposed to be warm and sunny and so the snow should have gone away, as is typical for March, but yesterday was cloudy and cool. There have been snow showers off and on and we had almost an inch of snow over night last night. And now they are saying more for Tuesday. Perhaps a lot more.
It looks like winter has decided to come back. I think we’ve already received more snow in March than February and it seems to be cooler. Now March snow is not unusual for New Hampshire, but after a warm February, it just seems like we are back tracking.
Work was busy this week. In fact, this was as busy as it has been in the last month or so.
The rest of the week went as expected. A lot of playing with the dogs, some writing, some drawing, massage, playing with my musical instruments, reading, etc.
Oh, wait, I forgot to tell you why I was late. I decided to go to the school budget meeting this morning. This is voting/meeting week here. We vote for local offices on Tuesday and have Town meeting where we spend the budget on Thursday. Today was school budget meeting, where we approved the school budget and other articles that came up. Small town New England has perhaps the purest form of strait up democracy as any place you can think of. Everyone can participate.
So that was my week. How was your week? If you have a coffee post, I’ll try to stop by for a visit.
The original Coffee Share kind of died out, but it has been revived! Eclectic Alli is hosting a coffee share. This week’s share is here. and the link up is here. Come on and join in! Hopefully we can bring it back to its former glory :)
