Well the blog service I was using doesn't allow me to upload to my site anymore. Since Addison is now here time is even more scarce, it has been very low on my priority list to find a new service. In the meantime, I have uploaded some photos from the last year for you to check out. I also have a handy dandy new Anroid phone which lets me upload to my youtube account. So I have been posting some video clips there as well. Take a look and I will work on getting my blogging software updated.

Anyways, here's some pictures from our recent visit to Elizabeth's brother Matt's new house down in Durham. We visited Matt, Dana and Tyler weekend before last. They have a wonderful new home in a great neighborhood. Zachary got to go to Wheels, play in the ball pit and playground. The grown-ups stayed up Saturday night playing Pinball and Beatles Rock Band. Good times, good times.

All told we had more then 50 inches between the two storms. There is a smaller system heading our way on Monday. Not fun.

Snow total link from NOAA, key in on Carroll County and Eldersburg/Sykesville to get an idea of what our totals are. I saw a total from 9:13pm that said Eldersburg had 8 1/2 inches. That looks about right from what I can see.(0) comments
I did take a video of the snow falling tonight. The lighting isn't all that hot but it gets you the idea. I will post more pics and stuff tomorrow. Should be fun to see what we wake up to. For now...check out the Photo Gallery from the other day.
More on the way...

Snow Pics Are Up
Saturday, February 06, 2010
posted up in a gallery. I particularly enjoyed this one of Zachary. This one and this one gives you an idea of how deep it is, the plow has not come by yet. This is the mailbox from this morning and this one is the mailbox from this afternoon. They forecast 8-9 inches during the day after a heavy fall overnight from last night.(1) comments
First picture update
Don't forget to check out the NOAA Snow total link, key in on Carroll County and Eldersburg to get an idea of what our totals are. It's still coming down pretty good, not as much as last night but steady.

Snow December 2009
Sunday, December 20, 2009
We tried to find a sled at the stores Friday night but struck out. I was able to fashion one out of a large cardboard box, it didn't fare too well. The snow started late Friday night and was still going strong on Saturday night when we went to bed. I think we'll be able to go into work in the morning but we'll see. The road into the neighborhood finally got plowed this afternoon. It looks a bit slick but I think we can get out without too much trouble.
Enjoy the pictures!!!

Northern Illinois University. My dorm held a Mr. Irresistible contest and I actually had the gravitas to enter. In my defense, it raised money for some charity that I have long since forgotten. But I digress, this post is not about my failed attempt at winning a pageant.(1) comments
This picture was taken in the lounge of the engineering floor I lived on my first two years at NIU. From left to right it is Doug, Chris, yours truly and Duane. I have since lost touch with Duane and Chris. Last I heard Duane was backpacking through Europe. I ran into Chris not too long after graduation at Otto's. He seemed to be doing well. Doug went on to become an optometrist and is now known as Dr. Doug. Last night he married the love of his life, Judy. So to Mr Irresistible 1993 and his lovely bride, Judy...from Elizabeth, Zachary and myself we offer this blessing.
"May you see your children’s children. May you be poor in misfortunes and rich in blessings. May you know nothing but happiness from this day forward."

WWII Dance at the Sykesville firehall. We all had a great time and met some very neat people, including Dick Yates who sat across from us with his wife, Mary. The music and and food were great. We're looking forward to coming back next year.(0) comments
Forward progress on the bathroom front. I had a friend of a friend come out to knock out the new lines I needed run. They did that and more. Elizabeth and I were really happy with the work that they did. We had a few plumbers come out that weren't worth a darn. One never called back with a quote, and the other came in with a crazy high number. Now I have to get up in there and get some framing done and the shower pan set. After that I will have to get some wall boards up and tiling done. Still lots of work left but I am happy to be moving forward again after stopping for a while.
