Took me time this morning to find my Sorel's...I still didn't wear a hat, my sweater coat was just perfect with no wind. I've been waiting for winter for soooooo long, let me enjoy my moment! Get back to me in a few days when other drivers make me insane...and the snow is grey and dirty.

I'm enduring -30C (-22F) with windchills of -40C (-40F). I don't care HOW pretty it is, its too darned cold to enjoy it.

You can go play in the snow and I'll stop being a killjoy though. Just hand me a mug of mulled wine and some furry slippers and all is well.

Aren't you a little behind? So when will you do 2011?

Is this a leather fetish?

Yeah and a fireplace and Kindle...

I'm just hoping we can see out the windows in the morning...it's still coming down. Nothing like having the stairwell filled with snow and needing to leave before the snow crew gets moving.

Nope, that's how deep the snow is getting... It's close to knee-high on me already!

Client was a bit behind. I'll probably start getting 2011 tax stuff in February.

My daughter and I went to Panera Bread for lunch, I had a bowl of their French Onion soup and she had Black Bean soup. Both were delicious. After that we went to the grocery store, they say that there is a big snow storm coming tomorrow.
