First it was Snowmageddon over the weekend. Then we had another BLIZZARD over the last twenty four hours. I'm not sure I've EVER seen this much snow. School is closed all week. The FEDERAL GOVERNMENT is closed, which makes me pretty darn happy since Uncle Sam's our guy and I get to steal my husband for one more day. There is so much snow that no one is making puny little snowmen. It's IGLOO time. I haven't run out of provisions yet (three gallons of milk) so I think we're ok for another day or two. This more than makes up for three snowless years in Nepal.
I am meeting the neighbors. The children are having a BLAST playing in the snow. The dog is really a wolf after all. I finished a novel I've been reading for-ev-er. We actually made some headway organizing the playroom. The forced cessation of go-go-go is a good thing - no, a great thing.
I realize a lot of not-so-fun consequences can come from a dumping like this. Our boxwood is doomed. I sure hope our gutters don't break off from the weight of the ice and snow. But perspective, perspective people (read ... me) ... there are people who don't have food/water/electricity all over the world and close to home.
They say we're not done yet either - more snow in the forecast. Inhale. Exhale. Smile.
Bill should get awarded a PhD in shoveling ... snow that is. (Note bent shovel!)
