Snow and More Snow

I’m afraid there are no house-updates to be found. As it happens, we keep getting snow and spend all weekend dealing with snow and then recovering from dealing with snow.

It all started with “Winter Storm Juno” a “potentially historic storm” as the media termed it. “Potentially Historic.” We were all naive, thinking “Ooo, cool, record breaking numbers.” But by the 3rd “potentially historic” storm we are just about at our breaking point. The tension is high all over the city. There is no where to put snow, public transit is shutting down, all-in-all, things are a mess.

A snow-level progression post is here: snow progression

One week after Juno we had the “Groundhog Day Storm” on Feb 2. We were off work for 1 day and got about 17″

The next week, an unnamed storm on Feb 9. We got 12″ of snow and I had to do the snowblowing myself. Another day off work.

The next weekend, we knew we were in for another storm so we spend all day Saturday(Feb 15) clearing snow and moving snow around in preparation for “Neptune”.

And then Neptune came rolling in on Feb 15. That Monday, the 16th, was President’s Day so we already had the day off work.

Another 1-2″ forecast on Tues/Wed and another potential for snow this coming weekend…

Basement Wood Storage

Our basement is a mess. It drives me crazy and the biggest source of the crazy was the giant, unstable pile of wood. So, we finally broke down and built storage.

We started with pressure treated on the floor:


and added the verticals:


Added the “arms”:

Added cross-braces and additional support:

Final product!:

Then we filled it with stuff:


We also hung the tandem in another part of the basement:

We still have a good bit of work to do to get the basement up to peak efficiency but the wood rack was a good start!

Photos of Winter Storm Juno

Arlington got 19 inches during winter storm Juno. Stefan and I were off work for 2 days.

We put Vector in his harness. He was less than amused by the snow.


Before Juno we had a beautiful Storm over the weekend.  This was wet, heavy snow that sticks in the trees well.  We got about 6 inches or so and then the 19 just a couple days later.
