Snow Day!
YAHOO!!! As I was getting out of my shower my cell phone rang. My wife brought it to me, but not in time. A second or two later my house phone was ringing. It was my office calling to see if I was planning on coming in. Well I was planning on it since it had only just started snowing and there was just the lightest dusting on the ground. The secretary tells me that the president was going to let everyone out at noon, but has decided just to tell people to stay home today. I was 5 minutes away from getting in the car. I can't remember the last time an office of mine just told me not to come in with the expectation of a big storm. I am very excited :smile:

Aren't snow days great GB??? I'm staring out the window watching the snow fall,wanting nothing more right now then to re-fill my coffee cup and just sit here and continue to watch the yard get covered. I have already started this morning by making a batch of Kadesma's Morning Glory Muffins and doing laundry so,I can indulge a little longer.My son and his wife are closing on the condo this morning (that's who the muffins are for)so I do eventually have to get my butt in gear to help with the move. Right now though I am enjoying the serenity and peace of the falling snow.Enjoy your snow day with your family, my friend!! Love and energy, Vicki

Thanks Red! My wife is bringing Rach to school right now and going to the supermarket on the way home. We will just let her stay in school for a few hours so we can get a little piece and quiet. Then I will teach DW how to build a fire in the wood stove (something she has wanted to learn for a while) and I will start our crock pot dinner. It should be a good day.

I love watching the snow fall Vicky. It is so serene. That is something I would really miss if I moved somewhere warmer.

Watching it is one thing - driving in it is no fun at all :wink:

We were supposed to get snow last night, but the temp stayed too warm and it's just raining. 39* right now. Enjoy your day off :smile:
