So ... we got a lot of snow yesterday. It snowed steadily from before dawn until about 4:00 and then it turned to sleet, which lasted until just before I went to bed.
It's a mess. When you take a good 8" of snow and then add the sleet... oy, let me tell you, it's nothing I'd want to be in. DH went out about 9:30 last night and shoveled. He'd run the snowblower as soon as it changed over and got the piles of snow off, but by bed time there was about 2" of icy slush on our driveway, and you don't want that to freeze.
Most of the schools closed yesterday. Many of the businesses as well. And this morning? There are nearly 300 delays reported for the state, which includes pretty much every school.
DD won't be shadowing today. I called yesterday (and left a message because they were closed) to let them know that I knew they'd have a delay today and that we'd reschedule. DD was only going to do a half day as it was (8 - 1), so sending her in two hours late would pretty well defeat the whole purpose. I checked this morning, and sure enough, they're on a 90 minute delay.
She's both annoyed and relieved. Annoyed because she "just wants to get it over with" and relieved because she doesn't want to do it in the first place.
She did have fun yesterday. Did school in the morning, but her two friends from down the street came by after lunch for sledding and other snowplay. Me? I did laundry. Cooked. Tried to ignore the hard rock music coming from DH's computer as he worked on the sofa ten feet away. I can't work with noise, so it was a challenge for me.
The joys of winter in New England.
And it's going to snow again on Friday! Woo.
You Are Having a Typical Day
You are creative and easily inspired. You see so much eye candy in the world around you.
You are a very organized and even scientific person. You like figuring things out.
Your thoughts are very far away from what's going on right now. You have something important on your mind.
You are quiet and reserved. You feel most at ease when you are able to keep to yourself.
It always freaks me out when theses quizzes nail things with such weird questions ... but this is pretty much right on. :::shivers:::
