Looks like you're in the Chardon of northwestern PA! Cleveland averages about 62 inches of snow a year. Where we used to live gets about 40% more - around 85 inches. Then there is Chardon, way east of Cleveland, that regularly gets double measure of Cleveland snow. No thanks!
Yes, not the news you want to be known for, but it's not like we are known for our sunny days and white beaches
They changed our weather forcast overnight. Instead of getting a foot by tomorrow we are supposed to get two by Wednesday.

They changed our too, Pac. Instead of 2-4 inches we are only getting one, and I think we got it already. The freezing cold temps are still coming, though.

I just made a Roux !

I thought I didn't know how. Plus I don't like Lumpy gravy. I preferred making a slurry when putting together gravy or sauce.

I just made biscuits and gravy. Made a roux for the gravy. Come to figure out, that's what I've been doing for years and it always comes out good. The gravy is the color of a suntan on a sandy beach. Visualize it.

mmm, gravy...
I just put copious amounts of sliced ham and American cheese on two hard rolls, wrapped them up in foil and put them in the toaster oven.

LOL! I'm just walking in the store. Shrek needs a cart to walk, I think I could use one too...both of us with a cart, now that could be expensive.

Even though it's sunny, it's not a fit day to be outside so I'm going to take today to remove and pack away the inside Christmas decorations. Today's the final day anyway. We keep ours up until January 6, so today's the day.
