Snow is fun...well, it CAN be fun. Does anyone else question how much (or how little) the public should really be trusting the weather folks?? I mean, it is great that they have the ability to look at the WeatherDoppler5001...but it seems to me that even if they had someone from the future to tell them what the weather forecast is - they would still flip a coin, cross their fingers and pray for the best.
At first they were calling for 6-10 inches of the white stuff...then, about 30 minutes later, they were forecasting 12-18 inches. I can't even remember the last time I saw 18 inches of snow - if ever for that matter. By the end of the day on Friday, the highest prediction was at 24 inches...oh great!!
I didn't believe we could ever get 24 inches of snow so I wasn't so concerned...I mean, how could Mother Nature RUIN the event that had been planned for MONTHS - okay, only one month?!?!?! There was no way that the impending "snowpocalypse" was going to prevent Holiday-Fling-A-Ding 2009...I hadn't my best girlfriends for far too long...no snow...not this weekend!
Alas, this is what the hubs and I woke up to on Saturday morning...white stuff had come down and was up to 12 inches:
By Saturday evening, we had gotten up to 18 inches and it didn't look like it was going to stop any time soon. Needless to say, Holiday-Fling-A-Ding 2009 has been postponed indefinitely. This was the only weekend that all of us had free so who knows when we'll be able to get together now. Probably not until after the New Year...BOOO!!!
On Saturday evening, the hubs thought he would dig out...but he didn't get quite that far - seen here:
He wasn't sad because of the snow...but he was more depressed because he wanted so badly to grill steaks for dinner. I told him that the wind was really bad and that it probably wouldn't be such a great idea. Not only that, but trying to keep the grill at an adequate temperature would be impossible...he still tried:
It didn't work though...we ended up eating broiled steaky goodness - at least I did. Hubs had fajitas...both yummy!
How did you spend your snow day(s)?!?!
