The teen daughter snapped this photo of our back porch roof tonight… It almost looks like a big hunk of snow was about to fall off and then it refroze, right in place. All in all we haven’t had a lot of melting going on. It’s still cold here and many, many of the streets in the area are impassable still.
And, get this. We’re supposed to get anywhere between 5 and 15 inches of additional snow tomorrow. No, really. I’m not pulling your leg. It’s going to snow more tomorrow into Wednesday. I can’t say that I’m looking forward to the new snow as much as I was looking forward to the weekend snow. It’s starting to get a little old. I’m betting that the schools will be out for the rest of the week, and frankly I don’t know if my sanity can stand it.
What’s supposed to be worse than the snow itself is the wind. We’re expecting fairly heavy gusts through the worst part of the storm. We were spared a major power outage the first go round, and I hope we get lucky again.
As for me, the Federal Government is closed again tomorrow. I am glad of this because there is no way we’d be able to get all the way downtown from here. Not only that, but with the kids off it makes it harder to get work done, so I’m glad I won’t be charged with a day of leave. I’m sure that won’t be the case for the rest of the week I’m sure I’m going to have to take off. I’ve been making minor progress on my knitting, and am itching to start something new. Still I am determined to finish my hat first. And John and Diana were able to make it out to the grocery store tonight, so they got fixin’s for homemade pizza. Looks like I’m cooking pizza sauce tomorrow.
It’s all good. I’m dreaming of Spring, but it’s good.
