Yippee!! I finally got my snow day. Right now it’s only a half a snow day but I’m not complaining. The weather geeks were calling for a significant snow to start sometime this afternoon and we were supposed to get between 2 and 4 inches of snow. Yea, right. They’ve been wrong before so I wasn’t all that concerned but I was prepared to leave work early if it really did start snowing. Sure enough, it started snowing about 1 p.m. And it was sticking to the roads and they were going calling for heavy snow warnings. Okay, time for me to head home. I cleared it with the boss and left work about 2:30 this afternoon. The city streets weren’t plowed, but the highways weren’t too bad. Took me about an hour to make the trip home – I was only going between 45 and 50 mph.
The doggies were happy that I was home early and they were really happy when I opened the back door and they saw the snow on the ground. I cleaned off the deck so they could go down the back stairs without falling and then we played in the snow for about a half hour. That’s about all the longer I could stand the cold. They went out a couple more times after I came in. Right now they are taking a nap and I’m snuggled on the couch with a cup of hot tea. I’m sure they’ll be up here in a little bit and we’ll have to go back outside.
There are a few things that I should probably be doing. Like laundry. Or maybe doing some housework. But a snow day – even a half a snow day – is a rare thing and I’m going to take full advantage of it.
Looks like I’m going outside again. Luci’s up from her nap and she’s nudging my elbow . . .
