Another snow day

Thankfully, our three cats were much better-behaved today. I say thankfully, because as it turns out we have to be cooped up inside with them all day AND evening – even though we’d planned to get out tonight – due to a nasty batch of weather that hit us throughout last night, this morning, and into the early part of the afternoon.

Snow, snow, and still more snow.

This is what I saw – or rather, couldn’t see – when I got up and looked out the window this morning:

It did stop snowing in the afternoon – eventually – but by then the damage was done: this evening’s event had been cancelled due to poor road and weather conditions. (And even if it hadn’t been cancelled, I doubt we would have risked it, as it’s a reasonably long drive – at least in inclement weather – from our home.)

It was absolutely gorgeous out this afternoon, though! After a white-and-grey morning, the sky turned a bright blue and everything was all sparkly and brilliant as the sun reflected off the blanket of snow. Very pretty indeed… but still, I am SO ready for Spring to be here!

In the meantime, though… since I work from home and never actually GET a snow day, I thought I’d amuse myself with a little virtual sledding.

Anyway, here’s hoping the roads are cleared quickly and we don’t get ANOTHER dump of snow… because tomorrow evening I have a ticket to see the Barenaked Ladies in concert, and I refuse to miss them!

How’s the weather in your part of the world?
Please share!

    I’m in Ohio for work and it’s fuh-reezing. Snow, ice, cold. Brr! I miss snow sometimes, but I’m already over it and it’s only been 3 days. I think it’s because I didn’t bring my snow pants. :)

    Woke up to subzero temps and reports on the radio of hazardous roads. Luckily, I didn’t have any appointments that required driving today. However, I too am “over the snow.”
    Having lived on the island of Kaua`i for 10 years before returning to Boulder, CO (where I lived for 26 years before heading to the islands), I got very used to warm weather. “Cold” there meant 60 degrees. Now, back in Boulder, 60 is warm again. However below zero (and now it’s 3 degrees) is a bit beyond my comfort zone.
    Like you, I find that after a snow when the sun is out and there are blue skies, the snow glitters and is beautiful (I even posted a few pics on FB the other day mentioning the beauty “after the storm”).
    I’m ready for spring. Thanks.
    :)

    Our weather situation has gone way too far. Snow, slush, snow. It’s really depressing me and at times, I am wondering if it ever going to end. Ugh.
    Glad I can just vent here…

    I love the ice crystals on your window pane! I’m here in sunny Arizona so we are actually enjoying the colder weather that is requiring sweaters, even though that means it is freezing in all of the other states. ;)
    Stay warm and enjoy some hot chocolate. I have my fingers crossed that you’ll get to see the Barenaked Ladies tomorrow night. :)

    We had snow then sleet topped with a layer of ice this morning. Part of the drive to work this morning was slip sliding away and other parts were wet. Then for the drive home it was a light coating that was a little slippery. Another fun drive but at least tomorrow will be dry and maybe we will see some sun.
    I too am ready for spring! It can’t be far away (one can dream)

    Oh, I miss the snow! And am fed up by the rain over here in England. It’s been raining the whole winter it seems, being wet and chilly. So, right now, I would also love to have spring already. Hope you make it to the concert tonight!

      I remember that sort of thing from when I lived in Victoria, BC – which I understand has a climate that’s very similar to England. I got SO fed up with the rain! Even though I complain, I really would rather have the snow – at least it (eventually) ends, where the rain seemed to carry on almost all year!

      I am DETERMINED to make the concert tonight, if I have to walk there, LOL!
