As many of you know my one Son Tim and his girlfriend Bonnie along with the Granddaughters live in Farmingdale New Jersey on the coast on a a horse farm.Just heard from them they had in excess of 20 inches of snow and high winds causing drifting, As Bonnie said.”Got alot over 20in.wind is howling, its like a hillbilly hoedown tractors 4wheelers built a 7 feet tall igloo no time to complain livin it up, we are trying to drum up some a set of skis to get pulled by the horses with.when life gives you lemons make lemonade

Can’t wait to see the horses pulling a sleigh ski’s my Son Tim will find someway to get them out and exercising.I wonder how long the Grand’s will be off school, They just don’t have snow removal equiptment in South Jersey.

By comparison we only got a couple inches jere at the weeb Ranch.Good to hear alls well and he kid’s are making the best of it. Lots of food in the freezer and a warm house. Have fun kid’s…….


  1. Glad to hear that you and your family are all safe. From some of the news reports not everyone was so lucky.
    Be safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. They are like pioneers, Sam!!! Hope you both are well (and the dogs!)

  3. Glad that they are having fun with it and not complaining about it. It's all about attitude!

    Having said that I am glad I am somewhere warm and away from the snow.


  4. I also have family down on the NJ coast and they got hit too. Some of the ocean front properties are in big trouble again. Your grands look like they are having a great time.

  5. Who told you they don't have snow removal equipment in SJ? Growing up there, they sure do. In fact one of Len's duties working for the state was driving a snow plow both at the prison and on state highways.

    Daughter you met up near Lebanon, Pa got 31 inches there. 20 inches, 31 inches all too much for me.

    Bet those grandkids of yours really don't mind having "snow days".

  6. Nice to see the grand kids having fun!
