It’s (Finally) Snowing

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

The snow was WICKED delayed.

According to the news last night, there was a 100% chance of snow starting around midnight and continuing throughout the day.

Thus…all the schools and some of the local businesses cancelled.

But of course you can never trust the weather.

When I woke up this morning at about 10 am….NO SNOW.

We took Izzy on her walk…back by 11 am….NO SNOW.

Had some computer time for about an hour…NO SNOW.

I made lunch…FINALLY some snow.  But just flurries.  Wispy and beautiful.  Nothing sticking to the ground or cars.

I just talked to my mom and she said that is how the snow (all 10 inches of it!) that they got in WI started.

So I guess I’ll pack my boots and my snow shovel for when I go to work tonight!  It doesn’t hurt to be prepared.

I really wish I didn’t have to work.  But a girl’s got to earn some money.  Especially after going grocery shopping and stocking the cupboards/fridge/freezer fuller than they’ve been in a LONG time 🙂

Hope everyone who got snow is safe.

A Day of Errands

Tuesday, February 9, 2010

Today was quite the busy day.

Went out and about to do several errands of which included grocery shopping (two different stores), the vet (cat food for Charlie, antibiotic for Madeline, and heartworm medicine for Izzy!), and a trip to the Department of Public Works to dispute our most recent bill (which was for almost double the amount of the prior bill).

It took the whole afternoon.

I made homemade pizza for dinner and then we went over to Kimm’s parents for a few hours because Kimm wanted her dad to check over our taxes.  We are getting a nice little chunk of change back!  That will be nice.

Now I’m just hoping that we don’t get too much snow tomorrow.  They said anywhere between 5-10 inches.  I’m hoping more toward the 5, rather than the 10–I have to work tomorrow.  I’m not looking forward to shoveling out before heading to work.  It’s going to be a long day me thinks 🙂
