Winner announced in secret giveaway

Congratulations to Deb of Maine, who won the drawing in the secret giveaway I had a couple of posts down. You’re the winner of a beautiful key fob or key chain of your choice. Please write me at katydid56@gmail.com with your address and your choice of fob.

Rather than use the random integer, I asked my husband to choose a number between 1 and 73 and he said ‘25’ immediately. So I went with that. Unfortunately, I can’t prove this so believe me when I tell you I’ll never do you no wrong.

The snow storm has abated, leaving us with drifts over 2-feet in some areas. This is a view out the front door at nightfall. I couldn’t get the door all the way open due to the snow, so I stuck the camera out the door with one hand and shot this. The sky looks lavender, doesn’t it?

More pics of the snow to come tomorrow morning. Congrats again to Deb and thanks to everyone for giving me feedback on the holiday cards. Loved some of your suggestions.

Until tomorrow, then . . .

And to Rachel Lynn, I’ll put your little gift in the mail, too. As soon as I can dig out of here. Sorry it’s taken me so long.

Well I guess if I couldn't win, I'm happy for Deb.

Although I would've said 25.4325! :)

Deb said...

Thanks a bunch Kate - that's awesome :)

Leenie said...

Enjoy that snow and be careful. We've watched the news about The Big East Coast Storm all day. Sorry for the problems the weather is causing but kinda glad to hear about something else for a change.

Gail said...

You sure that was Deb's number?? Congratulations, Deb.

Congrats to Deb! One of these days I'll win something too!

Looks like the snow storm in Maryland is about over! Love the picture...don't know how you feel about all that snow accumulation though. Can't open the front door?
How 'bout the back...'cause there's a sweet little boy-dog that has business to take care of!!! Warm thoughts, Jeanne

Yes, I cannot open the front door but will address that fact tomorrow. There are 3 other doors plus the garage doors. I tried to get George to go outside but he wants no part of it in the dark and all that snow!

Thanks for sharing the snow. I may gloat here in my Pacific warmth, but there is something elemental that I miss too and you supply it with soul!




Aloha, Friend!

Would you like me to send me dawg, Isla, to teach George a thing or two about said snow? Cuz if you opened ANY door, even a crack, with all THAT snow out there, well, she would have been bounding around & flipping about in that collie-glee way she has, as if to say, "LET ME OUT THERE, NOW!!!!!" She could maybe teach George a joyous thing or two about the white stuff, for she is truly smitten with every last dern flake. And her smitten-ness is infectious.

We are having a quite snow-less winter so far in the Pacific Northwest. Can you tell I am having *sympathy pains* for her?

Happy shoveling, CG, dare say, wish it was me! :>]]

There are so many people all over the world who have been snowed in. It's sunny here now so I'm hoping our snow will disappear soon.

Dear Kate,
I have left a couple of comments in the past months and I don't think I ever told you I loved in Maryland (Shady Side, 18 miles south of Annapolis) for 18 years. We moved to south Texas 2 years ago and needless to say I MISS Maryland so much especially today. We never had snow like this before Christmas during the 18 years I lived there. I spoke with all my friends yesterday and they were all miserable because they couldn't get out but I just relished in listening to their stories of all the snow. I miss it so much. And I miss my friends. Excuse me, while I go and wipe the tears from my eyes. Thanks Kate for the lovely pictures.

ro,
No. I didn't know this! Once we were without power for 3 days. This was about 7 years ago. Luckily we had camping supplies so had a stove and could heat water on it. I became accustomed to it and actually liked it. We were able to keep warm, too and thankfully none of the pipes froze. That was when we lived on the horse farm. My husband spent his days plowing and shoveling walkways for the horses to get outside. It was pretty rough.

I'll be posting more pictures today. I'm heading outside to do some shoveling first. I think we have about 18 inches and the drifts are really high!

Love your snowy photos. Where are you? Your country is so beautiful. We are still without snow. It's been raining and grey, so really appreciate seeing your snow.

Thanks for sharing!

Caroline said...

Congrats to Deb! Can't wait to see more snow photos!

Daryl said...

Congrats to the winner ... and I believe you

The Japanese Redneck said...

That's a lot of snow. I'm so glad we only had a couple of inches and it melted away after lunch!

Rachel Lynn said...

There's no need to worry, Kate. I know how it gets this time of year, rushing to finish last minute things, or working around the house, or just when you think you have a moment, tons of snow falls and you just can't get out.

BTW, I LOVE snow, I was thrilled with what we got here. And your pictures are beautiful.
