Although on St Patrick's Day everyone is Irish, I can claim my Irish DNA from my Great Great Grandparents William and Maggie. William Dorsey came to America from Ireland with his parents and brother in 1845 when he was one year old. Maggie Harper was born in 1850 and came America in 1860. Both families settled in Baltimore, MD. Maggie and William were married in 1869 and had 7 children.

We were very lucky here in our little corner. The predicted 8-14 inches of snow did not happen. I am very grateful for that.
We did have about 4 inches
that was squished into about 2 when the snow turned to sleet.
Now that mess is solid ice... Our Lucy Girl is walking (slipping) on this skating rink that is our back yard.
With the below freezing temps today this isn't melting. I can not get up the hill to the Workshop. I have been begging for years for a set of stairs with a railing between the lower yard and the upper yard that would be easier to clear the snow/ice off.
Okay...for those of you with so much more accumulation from this crazy woman Stella, I know I'm sounding like a whining ninny.
