Snow Update #3

Sunday, almost 10 am.

having not gotten to bed last night until almost 1 am, i slept in this morning and awoke to..........

snow, sunshine, and blue skies! I glanced out the window just in time to see a neighbor's son trying in vain to open car doors with all his might which were iced shut. he tried the other side and managed to get in , although who knows where he was headded.

whatever snow was on the roads last night froze to sheets of ice (try driving on that!)
this morning it's 20 degrees outside, and the wind chill is 11 degrees.

I'm so glad that i stocked up on hot chocolate for the duration, because i'm an armchair observer these days. I'll let the kids go out and play in the snow, hike thru the cold temps to take pics, send them to twitter and facebook, and freeze their toes and fingers off in the process.
I'm content to settle down for a long Winter's nap with my quilts, hot chocolate, and Hershey's chocolate nuggets.

p.s. final snow total: 8 inches!

I seem to recall the last time the weather was that bad was 2000. I guess it comes around every couple of years!

stay inside with hot chocolate, a good book, and sit watching out the window!
