...what do YOU do?? As most of you have read or seen on TV or experienced yourselves, much of the northeast got HAMMERED - many places with over 30 inches of snow over the weekend!!! We were one of those places- 31.2" total when all was said and done late Sat. night! Our local news deemed it was a blizzard in our area-dropping sometimes more than 3 " an hour with blowing winds and very little visibility! People lost power in various areas and although we got lucky I tried to prepare by baking and cooking extra meals and keeping the grill attainable if need be. Hopefully none of you lost power either! I feel especially badly for the shoreline towns which were again devastated by flooding and my thoughts and prayers go out to all.
So of course I have some pics to show :
I didn't get another pic of the final 31.2" cuz hubby went and dumped the heavy snow off the back patio roof-onto the picnic table and then cleaned it off.
Enough of that. Hot coffee and a snack:
A most delicious molasses muffin! The house was filled with a gingerbread aroma. These muffins are packed with a rich, comforting flavor and yet are light and not so sweet. Hubby loved them so much I just made a second batch! We both wish to thank Elizabeth very much for the easy recipe she provided in this post. And speaking of, do come visit also at Elizabeth's T Stands for Tuesday-you just never know what kind of treat you'll find amongst the link ups!
One last bit of art for this week:

Hope you are all safe and warm, and thanks so much to my newest followers, along with those of you who have stuck around for so long. Mwah!
