More Snow

Blech. I'm so tired of it. I promise I won't blather on about it forever. Yesterday, we got dumped on and had a 2 hour delay that turned into a "school closed" day. The roads around where we live were cleared up by 9am or so.

Then, we lost our electricity for a couple of hours. That was nice. The house slowly got colder, but never went below 67 degrees before the power came back on. I was happy, but didn't have time for a shower - I didn't get in around 9, as usual, because I knew I wouldn't be able to dry or style my hair - so most of the day I was feeling smelly with my hair pulled back in a ponytail.

I was shocked when I got up this morning and looked outside, then checked the school closing website. The county next to us had a two hour delay and we had nothing. Five minutes later, still nothing. Right before Buddy got picked up by his ride, still nothing. So, off to school he went on schedule.

Luckily, the sun is shining! It is only 8:30 am and I have already ate breakfast, showered and finished my hair and make-up. Sissy is up and eating her waffle and life is good.

I have a bunch of things planned around the house today and I'm going to get started early. It's amazing what a good night's sleep can do for a person.

I hope you all have an excellent Thursday. Happy Almost Leap Year Day!


  1. A good night of rest can do wonders for the soul. The weather? Well, we're stuck with that crap.

  2. Mmmmm.... waffles, Umm I guess a good nights sleep is good too.

  3. Ha! I didn't get a snow day yesterday! We actually had a two-hour-delay, but I didn't get the phone call, and it wasn't announced on NPR. (Note to self: next time check V-100. They get updated directly from the school!)

    Tomorrow is my husband's birthday. He turns 10.

  4. When you can accomplish all that by 8:30 you're pretty doggone swift, in my book :)

    Hope your day was great!

  5. Aw man! Leap day is coming up and I had a book I wanted to have read by the time that I got there. Well, I guess I'll have to wait for four more years!

  6. North Idaho is trying to figure out how to "make up" for all of the snow days....I say forget them. We hare starting the slow melt and breakup. YEA!

  7. I am soooooo sick of the snow too!

    Where the hell is all the warm weather?

  8. I sooooooo don't miss snow. My adopted town has had 2 non-stick flurries all year, while my hometown (which I'm visiting this weekend) is covered in near-record snowfall. Blech.

    This is my first winter without shoveling, but mowing the lawn instead. Love it!
