Blizzardathon2016 Breaking News Pink Saturday

Because of Winter Storm Jonas -- still not used to the practice of naming snow storms -- the previously scheduled  Pink Saturday post has been postponed for coverage of Buttercup's activities today.

I have prepared for this weather situation, just in case I am unable to leave my apartment for the next month. I have coffee -- a lot of coffee -- paper towels, toilet paper, library books and extra batteries for the remote and my mouse. I was being a little cavalier about the storm, but even as late as yesterday afternoon the prediction was four to eight inches for Manhattan.

Besides blogging -- hope to launch the new blog tomorrow -- here are a few of my other activities.

 In an effort not to be overly wired I will be switching from coffee to herbal tea later this afternoon. I think I'm going to start with caramel apple. The tea pot tea leaf holder is only included because it's so cute. 
  Later in the afternoon is spa time. I'm going to pamper my winter weary skin with one of the masks I brought back from South Korea. Despite how good this looks, it's not edible.
One of my foremost activities of the day is updating my Facebook page. One of my Facebook friends did a post that began, "Per the Facebook terms of service I am posting a picture of the snow...". I felt an equal obligation to post pictures of the snow at different times. This first photograph was taken from my apartment window at 7:30 this morning. 
I did a Weekend Weather Update at 11:30. I stood on the steps of my building to take this photograph. As much as I didn't want to put on my boots, hat and coat I did, so I could take pictures. 
This is my life today. What's going on in your neck of the woods?
Back to regularly scheduled programming. Yup, coffee drinking, reading and blog visiting. 
As ever, thanks for visiting. Keep cozy and stay safe!

Lots of snow here too, Buttercup! ;)
Blizzard conditions actually. We have our woodstove burning, the animals are cared for, the people are enjoying a relaxing day, also!

We were just watching CNN and they were coming from Central Park---beautiful---and a lot of snow. No snow here in Western NY though---I guess y'all were the lucky ones, friend.

Stay warm and I can't wait to hear about the facial mask---I also pray that Pepe is not hanging from the roof rafters wanting to go out and play. (wink and giggles)

Sipping tea, polishing silver, dusting, doing laundry. I've been away all week and have come back to a tired-looking house. The sun is trying to shine through the raindrops, so I can't complain.

We had our snow storm right after Christmas out here on the Plains of West Texas and today it was 60 degrees and bright sun.
Stay safe

Gosh, in that second snow picture you took from your front steps, is that truly a child out in the snow over to the left? What a hardy bunch Easterners are!

Stay calm and tea on!

I've stayed home and enjoyed the snow pictures from everyone else. Thank you for stepping out to make your snow photo. We had about 1/4 inch of sleet yesterday and it was gone by this afternoon.

Loved walking in the snow. With the car ban, my street, usually lined with traffic, was so quiet. No horns, no drivers yelling at each other. I loved it.

Glad to hear you are prepared and can stay in and keep warm and cozy there. Your storm missed us and went south and east, not coming up to northern Ohio. Take care !

We had a dusting of snow but I have enjoyed seeing the pictures of REAL snow:) Enjoy your day dear friend, sounds like you are prepared for staying in! HUGS!

Warm hugs to you sweet Buttercup. These are the kinds of pictures I truly love...the ones that show everyday life. The good and the bad. I hope you have plenty to stay safe, well feed and sane. Blessings to you and everyone there in NYC. I have been praying for the east coast. xoxo,Susie

gosh! very cold and heavy snow!
Where I live we had rain for 2 weeks in a row, it was unpleasant for tourists.
