Snow Day

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 . . .

    Snow left us.  I was incredibly happy.  Now it\’s raining and has been grey for ages.  I want the snow back!

    Glad you were able to have a snow day; you are a good mom to those babies!
     Pound Puppy actually saw snow once and if we were out long enough I am sure we would have tried to make snow angels too!

    I am glad you and the dogs are enjoying the snow.  It is so darn cold here and we have 5 inches of the miserable stuff.


    Thanks for stopping by my space.  It\’s nice to know that there are people who actually read it!  Unfortunately I don\’t have internet at home (I live in the sticks and refuse to go back to dial-up!) so I have to find time to update at work.  Not always possible.  I\’ll try to be better about it in the future though.  Hopefully I\’ll find some time to read through some of your blog too.  Take care.

    Hell no you shouldn\’t be doing laundry…. you should be sitting in your jammies with a nice glass of wine in front of a fire while scratching the dogs bellies…. enjoy life while you can.
