Snow Day...

Well a couple of surprises happened today. We knew we were getting some snow, but everything I looked at(the news, etc) all said afternoon snow, so I thought for sure it was going to be early dismissal. At 5:45 AM the phone rings and it's the superintendent letting us know there is no school. That never happened before. Hello...they could have warned us that that was the new plan, it scared me to death. Anyway, at 12:15 this is what my front yard looked like. BTW see that huge contraption by the stop sign, that or something like that has been in my yard since August. It makes me crazy. They have been installing sewers since the summer, I thought they were practically finished when THAT was placed there last week. Our yard looks so junky, it's embarrassing. I can't wait for the sewer project to be over. Here are some photos we took over the past few months.
First day of school, notice back hoe in the background.

Anyway, the snow really started coming down around 1:30 or so and it looked so pretty, totally blew the blizzard away.  I love how the trees look with snow on them, the wind from the blizzard blew the snow right off, not to mention the limbs and sticks which stuck out of the snow, so again my yard looked gross. OK, I'll stop harping on my yard.  This is what I think of when I think of snow.....looks like a quiet country road.  It's already all plowed now :( Oh well, we're supposed to get another storm on Tuesday.
And one last photo, Jack helps the elderly lady across the street, he gets her mail everyday for her.  So after reminding him(my words) or nagging him(his words) he finally goes out to get her mail, why would you want to go out like this in the snow is beyond me, at the same time he's texting, so it's taking even longer!  Lord, please give me the patience to deal with this for the next 15 years or so.Tomorrow I will post some pics from my classroom.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this website,, best ideas ever!  Happy Friday!!!


  1. That is so sweet that Jack gets your neighbors mail!! Everything looks so pretty....that sewer job would drive me nuts too! I can't believe the city can just start construction on your property like that and let it go on for so long. Seems odd.

  2. I know isn't it crazy, they own I think the first 10 feet, but when the excavators are parked on there, they are way in more than 10 feet.
