SNOW!

YES! We have snow! I woke up this morning, ran over to the window, and just about jumped up and down like a little kid when I saw a bunch of the white stuff on the ground. My daughter was less than enthusiastic, but she's not a morning person, so I'll forgive her. :-)

The commute to school and work wasn't bad at all, thanks to my handy 4x4 Jeep Liberty. It's still snowing as we speak and since I have a window in my office cube, I get to watch it. Hurrah!

And, being the dork that I am, I was actually singing the Winter Wonderland song this morning on the drive to work. Hehe.

It's still very cold outside and I had to put an extra blanket on my bed last night to keep warm. But now, at least, I get to hum the song, "It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas." :-)

  5. Yay! Good for you. :) It's really coming down here, too, in quite the snow storm. I reckon school will let out early for us because of it!

  6. Wow, you have snow. Wonderful. I'm so pleased for you.

    What a pity you can't send some this way. :o)

    And here's to the 4x4s, bless them. (Mine's waiting for me to collect it having had it's scrape sorted out.)

  8. It's pretty...but man, it's freezing here this week. Yesterday it was -18 at the airport, which is a new record for Dec. 15th. The previous record for Denver on that date was -6 in 1951! It's warm today at 4 degrees :)

  11. Brian - Not a bad drive at all. Of course, I have four-wheel drive so that makes a difference.

    Giddy - Hope you get some snow soon, too!

    Janna - It was snowing again about an hour ago. I hope it sticks around for awhile.

    Shirley - Here's hoping you get some more of the white stuff soon!

    Heather - Glad I'm not the only one who was happy to see the snow today!

    Lisa - Oh, yesterday was HORRIBLE outside. Sooooo cold. I don't think it's as chilly today.

    Debs - Maybe Santa will bring you some snow for Christmas!

    Joanne - I know it's crazy to want snow so badly around Christmas, especially when I have to drive in the stuff, but I am SO happy to have some now. :-)

  16. Glad you got your snow!!! We got some yesterday (about 4") and are expecting even more Sunday. Like you, I spent yesterday singing Winter Wonderland. The first thing I saw when I opened my eyes was snow falling - very pretty.

I love to hear from you!

One Day at a Time

I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...
