How did all of you who were affected by the storm make out?

The Day After
Well, I know there are areas that got blasted. My son in Boston says he has two feet of the stuff. However, here the storm lacked the much-touted drama and impact, and basically was just a normal snow storm, the kind that was matter-of-fact when I was a kid. Today the wind is blowing the mercifully light stuff about, wraiths racing up the hill and across the road, white tornadoes dancing in the yard and vanishing in a blink. We've shoveled and snow-blown, swept off cars, cleared a little open pen space so the chickens can sun themselves tomorrow when it's a bit warmer. We've vaselined their combs because tonight is supposed to be really, really cold, and Linda has cleared off the entrances to the hives. Hot chocolate has been sipped and it's time for PBS' Victory Garden, followed by afternoon chores.
