Let it Snow...


I've been watching the national news seeing all of my friends up north getting pounded with snow.  Here in the south, it's just downright cold.  Last week on the weather they said we might get some rain/sleet or snow for Christmas.  But we know how that is, right???  We will get some rain, it will be very cold, then it will start to sleet and then there may be some snow mixed in.  By the time it is all said and done we might have an inch of snow on top of four inches of ice.  Trees will snap under the weight falling into power lines knocking thousands out of power.  It will take a day or two for the ice to melt and the aftermath will be lots of downed trees and many cars stuck in ditches.  What is it about snow and ice that makes people think that they need to get out and drive?

I'm sending lots of chicken soup thoughts to my snowed in friends in the North as I sit here cuddled up under my snuggi (it's a blanket with arms) sipping coffee with French Vanilla creamer.

Five more days 'till Christmas, ya'll!!!

I believe that wer are looking at just a touch under two feet of snow here in my part of Connecticut and it's darned cold to boot! I'd be happy to send some down your way if you really want a white Christmas!

Naturally this storm came the night before I had to go into work for 16 hours so I had to have someone come pick me up this morning after I shoveled a path from the front door to the road at 5:30 in the morning. Great fun - not! I'd really rather be sitting home with a snuggie right now and maybe a nice cup of hot cocoa, too, but I guess someone has to send people out on all the emergencies we've been getting this morning (including the early arrival of a brand new baby boy!).

Enjoy your day and stay warm!

On behalf of the folks there in Connecticut, I'd like to say THANK YOU for your dedicated EMT service, Linda. Just like the postmen...rain, sleet, or snow right???

A new baby boy! How exciting.
