Keep calm, it’s just another snow day! #status #humor

snowday007Yep, Mother Nature dumped a bit more snow than expected during the night. The traffic cams along the interstate showed cars moving only where traffic traveled throughout the night with heavy snow falling. The express and emergency lane were completely snow-covered. Bridges and overpasses no doubt were icy and dangerous.

At 6am the temp hovered around 24º with 3″ of accumulated wet snow on the ground, as it continued to snow heavily. DH cleared the windshield off and attempted to go to work.

Several minutes later, I heard the door open. After sliding down the driveway and into the street kinda clinched any idea of trying to traverse our hilly neighborhood to reach the mainstream of things. He barely got the car off the street and sits at the bottom of our drive still.

No sooner did he get back into the house, we heard a vehicle spinning somewhere on our street. An hour later, the vehicle was still spinning. This time we could see him from our living room window.  The driver of a Jeep finally abandoned his efforts, leaving his vehicle parked near a neighbor’s house. That’s when we crawled back in bed for a little more shut-eye.

The snow has let up for the time being. What doesn’t melt away, will refreeze overnight. DH is shoveling the drive, so he can put the car back in its normal spot while the neighbor’s kids across the street enjoy a snowball fight. Heading this way is another threatening winter storm tomorrow and I’m more than ever ready for ready for spring.

I'D RATHER BE IN MIAMI, 'Oognik, I'd like to talk to you about your attitude...'Stop by to see this week’s featured photographer tomorrow on #WW and join the linky party. Keep warm and be safe! So, it’s just another snow day for us. How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?


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. We got a light dusting, but due for a big hit late week, I’m doing peanut butter cookies. Can’t be without those for moral support. Sounds a mess at your place. Stay warm and safe.

💕I love comments! Have a purrfect day & thanks for stopping by!💕
