Digging Out!!

I am SO EXCITED because I FINALLY got "my blizzard"!!!!!!!! :) I don't know how many times and how many winters that I have told Scottius how much I missed our old winters with lots of snow and cold weather! For the past several winters, winter has just not been the same with the warmer temperatures, etc. Now, I am looking forward to spring and do appreciate those warm days, especially since our electric rates are to be INCREASED by 30 - 55%, as of January 1st of this year. We have been able to keep our thermostat on 60 - 61 degrees, wear lots of layers of clothing, and grown accustomed to it. Because of that we have had cheaper bills. This next one will probably be a lot though with the new rates and colder weather.

Anyway, Samson our dog and I have been having fun with the colder weather and playing out in the snow. He is a Golden mix with husky and shepherd, leaning more to the husky side with a love for playing in the snow as well as eating chunks of it at a time. He also has that "pulling instinct" and will suddenly just lunge and pull me right along with him! We have a 45 foot leash so it doesn't take long for little old Lucy to be suddenly dragged across the yard! I have to be on my toes and ready for action at ALL times. :) Of course, I am exagerating just a tad!

Well, as I think about it, it probably is time for another "snow adventure" with Sammy!! After that, I am planning on enjoying the rest of the day being "snowed in" with Scottius and Angus and having that busyness come to a little halt!!

We had to dig out today too, Lucy! I don't think anyone on our street went to work today, and of course schools all over this area were canceled. Some neighbors helped my husband dig our car out tonight so he could go get some pizza, after we found out pizza delivery would take 4 hours!

Hey Barb!! My mom was telling me that your area was getting hit hard too! The schools in our area were canceled for two days. I don't think they have even plowed our street yet! Someone else had to plow it so we could get out! How many inches did you all get? And how was your pizza by the way? Stay warm!! :)

I think we ended up getting a foot of snow. It's hard to tell, there was so much drifting. Parts where the snow was almost as high as me, and then parts where we could see the ground. Schools here were canceled yesterday and today as well, but when you homeschool, the kids still have to work, work, work! (evil laugh) Our street got plowed twice yesterday, but we live in a little hick suburb. The pizza was good, thanks!
