Please Stop the Snow. Thank You, the Donner Party

My deck, 8:30 p.m. We measured the depth of the snow--18 inches so far, and it's still snowing. It looks marshmallowy, doesn't it?

Speaking of which, this month's "Fine Cooking" has a photo of a chocolate cake with homemade marshmallows scattered over the top. I like chocolate stuff well enough, but I prefer marshmallows and caramel. I'm going to try making the marshmallows tomorrow since I have all the ingredients. Then I'll scatter them in hot chocolate after we shovel some more. We went out to shovel, and the snow is very heavy. We didn't even finish the driveway.

This is the neighbor's house across the street. Because it was getting dark, the flash bounced off the snowflakes. I thought this looked really Christmas-y.

I think Pink looks like a big marshmallow.


I'm headed off to stitch!

Your grill looks like an egg!

And Pink is adorable, as usual.

Let me know if asking works with stopping the snow. I could use that at times. We are clear skied today and I am freezing bundled up in the stitching chair working on birthday gifts. I hope you get some stitching done. One thing that always surprises me about the snow is how quiet it is. Hope it slows for you soon. Hi to the bunnies.

I've been following your deck pictures showing how the snow gets higher and higher on it. We have that every winter and the most dreadful is that we have to drive to work the next morning. Fortunately there are lots of snow-ploughs for the streets but only shovels for the driveway, sigh.
Enjoy your stitching time.

Whoa! You guys got a lot of snow! We've gotten hardly anything in comparison, which is fine by me! lol! I think we're too far north or something. As for homemade marshmallows, did you watch Top Chef at all? Here's a recipe for both hot chocolate and homemade marshmallows from one of the Voltaggio brothers (one of whom won Top Chef this season). http://www.voltaggiobrothers.com/tlc_units/filter/2/7/1

This is way too much snow. I think my husband measured it at 20", but I'm not sure what is it now. I'm happy it's over!

Holy moley. That is a LOT of snow. I think Mr. Grill looks like a black & white Easter egg lol!

I feel your pain! That was us, last Christmas... fortunately we have 4 wheel drive (and a tractor to clear the long driveway) and only had to go 3 miles to be with family on Christmas Eve. Otherwise we would have been literally stuck at home.
