Finally

Poor puppies have been waiting all day for the snow. They’ve endured freezing rain and sleet all day. Now they’ve got the snow they’ve been waiting for . . . and some pretty wicked wind they don’t want.

Tomorrow should be big fun for them.

You Know It’s Bad

There’s an unwritten rule that Catholic Churches never cancel services because of weather.

During big snow storms all kinds of Churches cancel services but never a Catholic Church.

There’s a big storm coming my way tomorrow. Cancellations for weekend events have been rolling in all afternoon.

Imagine my surprise when one of the first Churches to cancel services was a Catholic Church.

Y’all it’s the end of the world as we know it.

A True Ohioan

Plans a vacation day to go grocery shopping to avoid the “white death from above” pre winter storm shopping frenzy.

Snow!

We got snow! It is very pretty. The dogs love it. I love it as long as I don’t have to shovel it again.

I got my wish – if it’s going to be cold at least we have snow.

Winter Storm Advisory

img_1876

The weather geeks are calling for snow . . . somewhere between 3 and 6 inches . . . I can only hope they’re not wrong . . . I’ve always said if it’s going to be cold (and since it’s Ohio it’s always cold in January), we should at least have snow . . . and it’s been dreary and cold lately . . . we need some snow to brighten things up a bit . . .

And it’s snowing on a weekend . . . where I don’t have to go anywhere . . . so BONUS!!

(This is an old picture . . . we don’t have any snow yet . . . I’m just hoping that we get at least this much snow . . . so I can take an updated picture)

November 26

Yesterday was a sunny beautiful day . . . high temperature in the mid 50’s . . . unusual weather for Ohio in November . . . and I won’t complain . . .

The dogs were in and out the back door most of the day . . . drove me nuts . . . but we won’t have many more days like this so I won’t complain . . .

Today a cold front moved through . . . first with wind, then with rain, now with snow . . . nothing significant, probably about an inch or so . . . and it’s just covering the grass.

Rocky and Millie LOVE snow . . . they like watching it fall . . . they like running through it . . . they like running outside to see if anything has changed in the two minutes since the last time they were outside . . . and since it’s snowing, they’re covered in snow so I have to dry them off and wipe their feet before they can come back in the house.

If I’m working on my cross stitch, I have to wash my hands after I clean the dogs so that I don’t get my project all dirty.  If I’m reading a book that I borrowed from the library, I have to wash my hands so that I don’t get the book all dirty.

If they’re barking at heaven knows what and I call them inside, they have to get a treat . . . because they came when I called them . . .

And if I’ve called them inside because they’re barking they look at me like I’ve broken their little hearts and made them stop having fun . . .

It’s November in Ohio . . . we’re going to have about three or four months of this stuff . . . and they’re driving me nuts after one day . . .

Yes, I’m complaining . . .

November 13

The weather geeks were calling for snow today . . .

I was excited . . . because snow means cold, means freezing temperatures, means killing the things that cause allergy problems for me, Millie and Rocky . . .

The weather geeks lied . . .

More allergy meds for us . . .

I am not happy . . .

Remind me of this post in March/April and I’m sick of snow and ready for spring.

Pretty

The cold snap is over.

We finally made it double digit positive temperatures.

We are finally able to turn off the kitchen faucet. I think the danger of frozen pipes is over.

And NOW we get the snow we were supposed to get over the weekend.

False Alarm

20140105-214224.jpg

Gnomie is trying to figure out where the snow is!

The weather geeks started the winter weather frenzy on Friday with the dire prediction of 6 to 10 inches of snow. Followed by “the lowest temperatures in 20 years” of majorly below zero wind chill temps on Monday and Tuesday.

I’m thinking “yay! Snow day for me!” Because it’s hard to claim a snow day when you live two miles from work.

Even Fluff decided he’d better hunker down. He came in Friday morning and hasn’t been out since.

The dogs are excited because Mommy is excited and that always means cookies for them.

So Prince Charming and I do the good child thing and check on the parents. Mine were out doing errands so they didn’t need anything. Mrs. Charming needed us to get some basic stuff for her, so we added her stuff to our list and off we went. Got everything done, got home, and we’re ready for the “White Death From Above” to begin.

It was supposed to start between 3 and 4 am. Millie got me up at 4:30 am to potty. No snow. She got me up at 7:30 for breakfast and still no snow. Checking the weather forecast told me that the prediction was now for rain and 1 to 2 inches of snow.

As of right now, it’s 36 degrees and still raining.

If they are wrong about the snow, maybe they are wrong about the sub-zero temps too?
