Still alive & shivering ...

Day #20 of the white shroud.

It started around 12/18, the fat snowflakes pounding into the ground .. and we thought, hey! a white Christmas. 

After about the first 12 inches, it was no longer amusing. 

After 24 inches, a bit irritating. 

After 36 inches .. well, lets just say we weren't too happy. 

Pookie got 2 snow days before Christmas break started, which she was thrilled about.  Now, nearly 3 weeks later, it's no longer such a great thing to get snow days.  The kids were to return to school Monday, but I've come to the conclusion that the snow is never stopping and the kids are never going back to school.  It's been cancelled every day this week, so far, and is already canceled for tomorrow.  We are doomed to be buried under the white shroud forever.

nope it still has not stopped snowing, it still hasn't gotten over 20 degrees, school is delayed 2 hours already for tomorrow, and no don't send anyh sweaty nekkid men ... they'd freeze.

I've come to the conclusion that it is never going to stop snowing and it is never going to be warm ever again .. *le sigh*

Well, I hope you've dug out by now! It's incredibly cold here in FLA! Ready for the warm weather to return. I think even the snowbirds are plotting a revolt...
