Winter Storm Watch
or
What else is new?

Last night was a quiet evening after work. After the requisite exercise bike ride I got cleaned up and settled down to relax. Scott had his friend Ben over and they brought home all the dishes from the International Fair which I mentioned previously.

After Ben left I made Danielle and I an omelet with diced turkey pepperoni, shredded potatoes, egg beaters, with slices of Kraft 2% sharp cheddar cheese melted on top. For Scott I boiled some water, added some skinless chicken breast tenders, and then a package of Ramon soup mix. The majority of the evening was spent watching TV.

A bit before bed I washed the dishes Scott had used. As they had soaked in the sink in soapy water for 5 hours the cleanup here was relatively an easy one!

It was snowing during the night, only about an inch, just enough to make the ride into work a slippery adventure! Of course it has been snowing since the ride in and now at lunch time there is at least 5" and it is still snowing. It's supposed to take a break but be back big time for the weekend. Of course, it is still snowing now and it was already supposed to stop. The Mustang, even with all season tires, does not like to go in the snow.

I am SO GLAD I got the snow blower working!

My plan for this evening, and the weekend in fact, is to hunker down and plan on going NOWHERE! The kids go back to their mom's this evening for the start of her week, so I can just kick back, queue up some of the holiday compilation DVDs I got as presents last Christmas, and enjoy the snow while being indoors.

This has been one of the most stress filled weeks at work I have ever had....I really need the downtime, and I am so looking forward to not having to get up in the morning for work.

Chris,

Staying indoors sounds like a reasonable approach to the weather you are experiencing!

Here, it was 32° early this morning. Tomorrow is forecast to be 31°! Yikes!

David - In spite of the fact that the weather forecast if more often wrong than right, when severe weather is predicated I make sure I have enough items in the house to get by for a couple of days so as not to journey out. My daughter knows that is weather like that I will NOT venture out to take her to a friends house!

Wow! 30's for you must be pure torture my friend!!
