Snow day.


That is my car at about 8:30 this morning. Perhaps we will see her again in the spring.

The Jersey Shore surprisingly got more snow than just about anyplace I've heard of. We never get snow....n-e-v-e-r. A couple of inches is a big deal. Mike and the Maggie dog are trapped like hamsters in a habitrail.

Mike, clearly a descendant of one of the original Wise Men, made me get in his car yesterday morning in my pajamas to get out of there and back to our apartment. Today, I will be hosting an abbreviated version of the annual cookie exchange here for about eight women who are intrepid enough to come out (it should be noted they all have small children at home. ;-).

It goes to show, nothing can separate a woman from her cookies.

You should be having a shoveling out party!! ;-)

Oh my word! We were shocked at 5 inches!! Maybe you should have a cookie and digging party? ;) I hope no more comes down!

Happy Holidays xx

Yes, there is more snow than I have ever seen! Amazing!! If you find yourself heading shorewise tonight, stop in at around 7:30 for drinks and dessert. There will be no abbreviated party here, most of the guests will be walking across the street.

Whoa! That is a lot of snow (and we get snow here all the time)! :) I hope you have a lot of fun at the cookie party!

We heard the shore area was hit the most in the state. I'm in Morris County, and we have about 8-10"s. Thank goodness the snow is soft. It was fairly easy to push off the car roof and pull out. Good luck to you, and have fun at your cookie party!!

Oh, and a jig saw puzzle is nice on those days too - - -

Merry Christmas!!!!

Laura -

Yes we did get blizzardized didn't we?! If I were closer to Hoboken -- town of beautiful brownstones,pubs and steak houses that serve up pieces of beef Fred Flinstone was accustomed to -- I'd be there with bells on. Some clothes too, I mean after all it is cold outside. Besides I would then have to pick up some bakery cookies, smudge flour on my face and lie that I was baking all day.
Enjoy, my friend!

Maureen said...

I hope it went well. I thought of you as I actually baked thumbprint cookies. Hope it was fun.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Oh wow you got a lot of snow! We got about 14 inches and I'd say half melted into grey slush by this afternoon

Hope your cookie exchange was a success!

PS: You must have seen the documentary "Dyker Lights" on PBS

:-)

Kwana said...

Eek! I am not going to complain anymore about the amount we got. You win.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Wow! Look at that!

I love the idea of your cookie party. Wish I was in NYC so I could come, too. I'd be happy to crash...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Jen R. said...

Holy cow! I laughed a bit when I saw it! Crazy! I hope you get out soon! Happy Holidays!

Diane@A Picture is Worth.... said...

How'd the party go??
Hope half of that snow has melted by now!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Hope your party went well, Laura. Dropping back by to wish you, Mr. Shorehouse, and Shorehouse Mom a very Merry Christmas! Love you much...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Maya said...

What a cool scenery..., it is pretty, isn't it. You clearly got more snow than we did in coastal RI.
By now you've probably shoveled your way out!

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Laura!!

Joyce said...

Laura- Oh my goodness I can't believe all the snow!!
It seems like yesterday I popped on over here during the cookie exchange last year. Merry Christmas my friend! xoxo

Lisa said...

Laura, just wanted to pop in and wish you and yours a happy and healthy holiday! Hope you have a wonderful time :)

On another note, as I mentioned to Pat..we traded Melky for the guy who gave up the grand slam to Johnny Damon in game 7 of the '04 ALCS. UGH, never wanted to see Javier in pinstripes again. Oh well :(

My goodness...makes me so glad I don't live in a snow country!
Stay warm & Happy Holidays~

I found it so funny, that we Jersey Shore, NJ inhabitants, who do not see alot of snow...well, when we got hit with this semi-blizzard, so many of us just had to take pictures, me included....(they were posted all over Facebook, among other places). it's just so funny. but this is how we live 'down the shore'....and that's why we don't live in Vermont or Maine or Minnesota. but someone played a cruel trick on us. it was beautiful and the kids had an extra few days off from school, but let's hope we have an early spring!!!!

Pearl Maple said...

Wow that is a lot of snow for most places, too funny the comment about moms needing to get out. Have a wonderful white coated holiday.

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Oh my, Laura! Wonder if you are still snowed in. Merry Christmas to you girlie!

Sue said...

I have always told the Boss that it never snows at the Jersey shore...I guess I can't do that anymore....
