snow day!!!

OK, so this isn't really what it looks like outside (secret - this is the blizzard of 1977 in Buffalo NY, but don't tell anyone!) but a girl came dream!!  Actually, we have about 10 inches and it's still coming down, so we could end up with a foot before it's over!  Hubby is in DC (poor him missing this great snow!) and neighbor wants to use the snow blower - can you say barter?  Use it no strings attached - ok one string, can you do my driveway too so poor helpless housewife won't break a nail??  Actually I usually like clearing the driveway with the snowblower, but that's a lot of snow out there and if there's a young strapping man with time on his hands, by all means sir, please help this damsel in distress!  Fingers crossed!!  I am really looking forward to it stopping (or at least slowing down) so that the kids can go out and play in it!  Snowmen are begging to be formed in the front yard!!  Cheap thrill of my day so far... my really small dogs (approx 10 and 12lbs each) heading out for the first time this morning with NO idea that the snow is almost as tall as them!!  That cracks me up every time!!!  I'll be out with my camera snapping away once the wind and snow die down!!  Till then... hot chocolate and a fire anyone??

I have wanted to be snowed in all winter. In NC, the schools last week when we had a dusting...yep ,crazy, but they're afraid of the black ice. Enjoy a day of coziness.
(Can I say, I just love the profile pic of your 3 girls...precious)!

Lucky, Lucky you!

The rest of my family is snowed in at home, but I had to come to work to hold down the fort. I'm the only one here, answering phones so I decided to blog all day between phone calls!!!

All this talk of snow from all you northeastern folks -- it's making me jealous! We'll never have a snow day or any other kind of day around here. Enjoy!

I went to elementary school in NC. they closed school everytime anyone said snow. I went to highschool in a ski area in CO, they have never closed school for snow (only subzero temps)

There is a lot of snow here, too! I had to laugh when I let my Lab outside this morning!! He loved it and played in it! I had a time getting him to come back in because he was having so much fun!
