So last night, all of the schools in the area announced they were closing for today. Finally at about 9:00, the county announced they were going to be open, but that the courts were going to be closed (thank goodness for the judges who have decided to take a stand when the commissioners are just plain stupid). They were predicting snow to move into the area overnight, maybe 1-3 inches for my area. I went to bed and read for a long while. At about 12:15, I looked at the radar and it showed snow right over the top of us, so I went to look out the window, but it wasn't doing a thing. I convinced myself that this likely meant no snow, and went to bed.
When I woke up, we were in a winter wonderland!
Finally a true snow day! Now I love snow. I think it is so pretty. This snow isn't very wet, so it isn't even sticking to furry legs, which is a wonderful perk too. But... But... It would have been much more welcomed if it wasn't coming on day 4 of being cooped up in the house! And I do mean that I haven't left my property since Monday night.
Honestly, as long as I have tv and books I'm completely fine with that. I don't get bored easily. I still wish I had stocked my pantry better. I don't want to mislead you. By no means am I at risk of going hungry. I'm just bored with what I have to eat. I'm also over this local news overkill. Due to the snowfall, they are at it again and have been on air straight through GMA, the View, etc. They are all excited because some snowplows from the panhandle have come down and are plowing the highways due to the Super Bowl action in town. So it's snowplows all the time on our local tv!
I feel very thankful after a week like this that Lola doesn't hate ice and snow like she does the rain, so it has been no problem getting her to go outside!
