It's Friday again? Why, yes it is! Have something to celebrate? Stop by and see Lexa Cain and join our weekly blog-hop. And don't forget the co-hosts: L.G. Keltner and Tonya Drecker.
Last week was off the rails due to a highly unusual wind storm. School was cancelled for two days and the main thoroughfare to just about every place we go was closed due to several power poles (and lines) going down.
I was hoping for a calmer week, but Mother Nature had other plans. She sent us this:
These days, when the weather calls for snow, I roll my eyes and say, "Yeah, right. They predict three inches and we get a flurry. They predict eight inches and we might get one. Big whoop."
Well, this time I was wrong. The snowfall topped expectations! Hurrah!
Of course, with this much snow, there is a price to pay. Schools were closed, again, for Tuesday and Wednesday. My older daughter's play rehearsals were cancelled, again. I feel terrible for the director and other people in charge. Two major weather incidents right before opening. What a mess!
And then there's the shoveling. We do have a snow blower, but I won't let my husband use it. Shoveling is great exercise and after being stuck inside with arguing children, a 10 degree wind chill doesn't scare me. Two days later, however, my back and shoulders are screaming.
See these snow banks? That's all me, folks. I'm a shoveling machine.
My younger daughter, just chillin'
Did you know that snow banks make very comfy chairs (provided you're wearing snow pants)?
Okay, so windstorm, snowstorm, then... What will Mother Nature throw at us next week? Stay tuned and let's hope it's not one of those
