Snowmeggedon, Storm of the Century Part Deux and This Week At Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words

Capital 2016 snow

 

Sooooooo, its been snowing here in the MD DC VA area since Friday afternoon and doing a superb job of it.  We are at 2.5 ft of snow here and climbing with snow expected to continue to fall through to midnight.  Now I know you New Yorkers, Bostonians, Alaskans, Minnesotans, etc., are laughing and snorting and making sarcastic comments but hey, we don’t get this amount of snow.  You all don’t do our high heat and humidity, we don’t do your freaking high amounts of snow and low temperatures.  And yes, we don’t handle it well.

You may not see me until  Spring.  My dogs are not happy as you can imagine.    At the backdoor, Kirby takes a flying leap towards the fence as the neighbors have decided to snowboard down their slope and ends up up to his chin in snow (and he’s not a small dog).  Oh the wounded look on his face.  I can’t even keep up with the feeders close to the doors either.

So its reading, writing, staring at the window and  listening to the meteorologists tell me what I already know.  We have a ton of snow on the ground and more falling.

What books are your fall back comfort reads?  On days ( or its looking like weeks like this)  what books do you curl up with that make you feel all warm and fuzzy, or  just plain pull into that world so you can forget whatever is going on outside in real time?  Let me know, turns out I have plenty of time to check them out…

Oh, I almost forgot…see?  Snowbrain!  We have a new reviewer here.  I’m so excited to introduce VVivacious to you all.  Here is her bio.  Please give her a warm welcome.  Her reviews will appear shortly.

VVivacious’ Bio:-

 
“I am a 21 year old girl studying in college and if there is one thing you should know about me it is that I love reading and I love sleeping, a fact that everyone around me can attest to.
 
As such I can’t attribute my love of reading to either of my parents, even though my father does read a lot, it was never something that was actively encouraged in me but I am almost glad it wasn’t because if I am this bad without any encouragement then God forbid what I would have become with a little bit of encouragement.
 
I remember vaguely that the first book I read was about a ragpicker – it was an older children’s book and it opened a whole new world for me, the door to which was pushed wide open with the influx of the Harry Potter series in my life. And just like that once I started I never stopped.
 
Romance is a bit of a later discovery for me but the whole assurance of a happy ending thing had me hooked on and on this whole wave of discovering romance and erotica. I came across Armed & Dangerous which was my first ever MM romance and I can’t think of anyone better than Ty & Zane to have ushered me into this world.
 
The only problem now that I have read so many MM romances is that, I find it hard to read anything else…”
 

Now on to this week’s schedule.
