It's snowing.

It was snowing when I woke up at 6am. It was snowing when I woke back up at 8am. It is snowing now and it's 2pm.
The snow just keeps coming and coming.
My driveway was plowed, oh, an hour ago ... there is a very nice layer of snow on it already.
It is white everywhere you look outside. And not only is it snowing, but it's blowing.
A friend came over earlier and left once we realized just how bad it was getting. She made home just fine (thankfully) but she said the roads are not good. It's like the plows can't keep up with all the snow.
Now, we knew it was coming - truth be told I didn't think it would be this bad or last this long - so dh and I planned for me to not have to leave the house with the kids, but he's at work. And he has to drive home. And traffic will not be pretty. And so he will probably leave work extremely late (because if he left at 5, chances are he'd just sit in traffic).
At least I had a friend over for a while today ... that was nice and helped my day seem a little less dreary. As soon as babyboy falls asleep I believe I will curl up on the couch with some knitting and reading and try to make the most of being housebound.

In other news, the original plan was to move a bunch of items to the new house tonight. Yeah, not going to happen. Bummer. Moving in February doesn't seem like such a good idea anymore!

UPDATE: It is now just before 6pm. And guess what? It's still snowing out there! Although it has slowed down a bit. I am in awe ... 12 hours of snow nonstop! Amazing LOL!

It wasn't exactly 'balmy' here yesterday, but the pavements were dry and the sun tried to break thru the clouds when I took Dylan out for a walk. I have family in New Hampshire and as I watched the national news this morning I couldn't believe how that part of the world is disappearing under snow, ha! My husband was telling me in upstate NY they don't even bury people from Oct-April because everything's so solidly frozen. I can't even imagine THAT!! But another storm front's blowing in from the Pacific today so I'll be thinking of you in your igloo while I row around in my dinghy, LOL! ;-)
