A show of hands #life #snowday

tired+Of+snow+imageGood-afternoon,  kittens and dawg! Geez, Louise a second snow day in one week! Why can’t Mother Nature bring the white stuff at a time when we all really, really want to see it…. like Christmas?!

We got more snow with this system, then we did Monday night. I roughly guess we got 6″-7″ of accumulation. It’s really beautiful and it’s a gorgeous winter wonderland outside, but everyone in our neighborhood is kinda trapped. The city keeps the main arteries clear and the secondary streets are left at the mercy of Mother Nature. Yeah, like she’s gonna help! Well…not today!

DH will go out in short order to shovel the fluff…okay it’s not fluffy! This storm dumped the wet, good-for-packing snow on us this go around. DH is in for a better than usual driveway workout.

The forecast shows promises of warmer temps starting Saturday and carrying into next week. If this pans out then maybe the worst of winter has passed. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!

I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.

    Hi Cathy – you too? Got 5 inches last night… yeah – wet, packed stuff. I live on a steep hill, so I get to watch cars slip and slide… and kids sledding. One nut on a bicycle went into the ditch. Of course he didn’t think about the snow being so deep there. The kids pulled him and his bike out with a rope. Later they were out there roasting marshmallows, next door… middle of the street.
    Okay, enough of my rant… enjoyed your’s. See you Sunday. (smile).
