Snowpocalypse Now. Or, Not.

Yesterday, it was predicted that we would get around 2 inches of ice and 12 inches of snow.

Yeah, not so much.

I went into work the evening shift at work... and was told we were closing at 1 pm. I was gone, from couch to couch, less than 2.5 hours. Woohoo!

It was icing like crazy yesterday though...
Aren't those little pellets cute? Totally make me want a snow cone.

Last night the wind was absolutely howling. The local news clocked 52 mph wind gusts in my hometown. BRR! We had several power surges here but fortunately the lines are buried in my half of my neighborhood... the above-ground lines had some problems last night! Yuck.

Fortunately, I was able to pop over to Target yesterday for provisions... I'll definitely survive my 2-hour delay this morning.
Yumm.

So... this is the current view outside my window.
The wind is howling louder than I can even convey.

So.

Think it could possibly be another snow day?

My fingers are crossed.

I'm loving our snow day mostly because we still have power whereas most of Texas doesn't!

the view out your window looks like the view out mine. the ice is crazy! we've lost a tree and so many branches - it's kinda scary...

one plus is that me and my fiance are both still home in our pjs and it's almost 4pm...

Oh, how I miss snow days! My newspaper never closes... I just have to haul my scared butt in by the skin of my teeth. Looked like lots of fun, though, and the ice definitely reminds me of a snow cone!

Hope you are staying warm and dry!!! I'm extremely over the snow this year. Hopefully spring shows up soon or I may have to retreat to the South. :) XOXO
