No school today!


It's like Houston before a hurricane--people out buying snow shovels, propane, salt, etc. in preparation for the big snow expected later today (20 inches!) Old hat to Midwesterners but an adventure to us city slickers. I'm about to go out for supplies which probably should include a snow shovel but how are we going to shovel .2 mile of drive? I just hope our power doesn't go out which is a not uncommon occurance in a storm. Without a storm, it went out on Thanksgiving Day. Maybe too many turkeys in too many ovens? Candlelight is always fun but it could get a mite chilly in here. Stay tuned for snowfall photos! Unless the power goes out...

We're on the tail end. Some sleet. Icey roads. No big school closures. Have the girls make a snow angel with my name on it; make them some hot chocolate with marshmallows (you didn't forget to buy that did you?); build a fire in the fireplace (please say you have a fireplace); and download the new Christmas cd from Sarah McLaughlin. Yum. Wish I could be there.

Seven degrees and sunny here. If you get twenty inches of snow, it might not be until spring that you dig yourselves back to the main road! :)
