Taking it easy

And thinking about the next storm coming, supposedly tomorrow. Another 8-12″ of snow. It’s exhausting as the blowing and drifting snow keeps filling in our shoveled areas. It’s definitely turning into the winter that keeps on giving!

We have been having a visit with our grandson, and enjoying the sun pouring in the windows today. The temperatures have been dropping and staying down there. It was 0F this morning and I don’t think it’s gone about 16F yet, with winds doing their best to give us biting wind chills. So we are hunkering in and I am getting some knitting done, John is baking cookies, and the grandboy is watching a video and coloring.

I probably should be doing laundry and things to get ready for the workweek, but I can’t imagine that we will be going to school tomorrow, even though it doesn’t sound as if the storm is going to get rolling until dawn or a little after. Most of the school districts around here were closed all day Friday, but we went in and were released early. Roads were not great for the return trip, but at least we got a “legal” day logged. We now have used 4 of our 5 allotted snow days. Always a balancing act… we don’t want to be holding classes until the 4th of July!

  1. Glad to hear you are only getting flurries, Roz! We expect real winters here in Maine, but historically the coast has always gotten hammered less than inland. In the past few years we have actually gotten more!
