Well, here we are! We survived this storm. Did you know we are about to get MORE? There is a forecast for more snow tomorrow from 3 to 6 inches. And then...there is more on the forecast for the weekend! YIKES!
I didn't make it in to work today. Don't let these pictures fool you! Our street was clear to the pavement, but the roads out of our subdivision and beyond were snow covered mush! When I got to the corner the snowbanks were so high I couldn't see if there was any traffic coming and when I turned (slowly) onto the connecting road, I slid quite a bit. My van is NOT made for snow, and I was truly afraid to drive to work, so as soon as I got to a good place to turn around, I did and came back home. Isn't it strange how you can stay in your home for days on end if you WANT to, but when you CAN'T get out, you are dying to! I keep thinking of all the work to do at my job and how much I really did want to get there. I was just too afraid of the drive to work. Oh well, there's always tomorrow...but WAIT, there is supposed to be another storm coming Tues afternoon. *sigh* School was canceled today and has been canceled for tomorrow too. DS is in seventh heaven! (Until he loses his mid winter break that is!)
The neighborhood kids were out in force today, so DS made his appearance and had a little snowball fight of his own....of course...he wore shorts! LOL
Can you see how tall the snowbanks are? Just for perspective, DH is 6 feet tall!
The neighbor's husband is in England (of all places!) and is missing all the snow. We spent a good hour and a half outside today shoveling her car out just in case she needed to go somewhere. They are originally from Texas and really don't know how to handle this amount of snow. Not to mention, her DH left their snow shovel in storage before he went away. They are good neighbors who are trying to transfer back to Texas, and part of me knows they miss their family and would like to go back, but the other selfish part of me wants them to stay here. It's strange how people don't know how to be neighborly any more.
The good news in all this is that I've been able to get quite a bit accomplished on my Camelot Sampler. At this rate I'll be finished in a few days and I'll be able to work on something different. When Gillie was here she made some suggestions about the wedding date (which I took, thanks Gillie!) but wanted to find a place for their name. After discussing it with DH I finally decided to put their name across the sword. What do you think? Is it legible?
Guess that's all the news that's fit to print. I hope you are safe and warm wherever you are! *Hugs*
