March Stormin’ 2018

Three storms within the last 11 days!  It is incredibly beautiful, but individuals with rheumatoid arthritis will tell you, these days can be extremely difficult. Individuals with different forms of arthritis are known to predict the weather with joints acting up when a rainstorm is approaching or flares may occur for those with rheumatoid arthritis when a blizzard hits.  

At 4 am this morning when I awoke to a light dusting of snow in the driveway and the brushing of a tree against the side bedroom window, I knew why I awoke so early!  It was going to be a challenging day, considering my experience with previous storms. I knew I could weather this blizzard with the help of my tool box of bad weather necessities and my walks on the beach that loosen me up.

With the impending storm barreling through the northeast and the knowledge that many with arthritic issues may be having a rough time, I decided to forgo today’s scheduled post and let all who are having a difficult time know that I am thinking of you and hoping this storm has not overwhelmed you and you are all well!  Here’s to a great week!

    It is heartbreaking to watch the robins looking for a patch of grass where they might find food. Drawn North by exceptionally warm February and left hungry by this cruel March.

  2. 18-20 inches of snow at my house. And we lasted until 6:20 pm before the power went out. Third time in 10 days. I hurt like hell, my shoulder is arthritic and needs replacing and shoveling is excrutiating.

    I say Uncle. I’m done with this winter!!


    Hi Mary Ann,
    I hope you have a good week as well. I’m praying for a lovely spring! We deserve it.
