it’s really gonna be crappy weather the next couple days here. tonight, my weather report has warnings that mention scary phrases like:
“STRONG GUSTY WINDS WILL LEAD TO BLIZZARD OR NEAR BLIZZARD CONDITIONS”
“ BLOWING SNOW WITH STRONG WINDS AND POOR VISIBILITIES ARE LIKELY. THIS WILL LEAD TO WHITEOUT CONDITIONS… MAKING TRAVEL EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. DO NOT TRAVEL. IF YOU MUST TRAVEL… HAVE A WINTER SURVIVAL KIT WITH YOU. IF YOU GET STRANDED… STAY WITH YOUR VEHICLE.”
mmmm…nothing like a good winter storm to make you appreciate your furnace. even if the old thermostat is set at 65 degrees and you are wearing two pairs of socks to keep the chill off your toes!
so, owen and i are hoping for another snow day tomorrow. unfortunately, ry won’t get that luxury now that he’s working retail, but the two of us will make the most of it! jumping on beds, running amok, picnics in the living room, baking cookies, and all that good stuff! and if i’m really lucky? little man will be worn out from all that exciting activity, and i will spend my afternoon spinning that beautiful polwarth, sipping on hot tea, and watching lord of the rings.
mmmmm… doesn’t that sound delightful?
let it snow. let it snow. let it snow!
