Starting last week they were claiming snow. No one knew exactly when it was supposed to hit so I heard we were in for snow all week. In fact the preacher’s wife does snow dances with their dog. I said that was all well and good as long as it canceled my university classes too because I didn’t want to have to drive through this crap to get to school :).
As this week slowly creeped in I started watching the weather. Monday’s prediction said that we were in the vicinity of 2-4 inches, the guy on the radio said 1-3 and somewhere else I heard 3-6. See no one really knows…
The talk all over facebook had different meteorologist predictions…
Even those predictions couldn’t agree. Like I said, no one knew/knows.
Jump forward to Tuesday morning. My step-daughter’s school calls our phone for lots of reasons. At 5:35am we got a phone call from her school, well they were closed. I drifted back off to sleep though because it was way before I needed to be up. Sometime in the early 6am hour my mom sent a text that she saw the university canceled and she had to let me know. I guess I slept through the text but hubby didn’t so he got up and responded to her.
Wait, what, I didn’t have to go to school today? I woke up long enough for hubby to tell me that news. I asked what the weather looked like outside and he said it was bone dry. Wait, what? Hubby told me to go back to sleep and enjoy the chance to sleep in. Normally I can’t, but I’ve been fighting a cold so I got up, hopped in the shower, took a nice warm shower and went back to sleep. Around 9:30 hubby started texting me because I hadn’t responded to any texts previously and I was like, I did what you told me, I went back to sleep :).
He wanted to know what the weather looked like so I snapped a quick photo and sent it to him. At that point it had just started snowing and we had a light dusting.
Around noon time he called me. His work is really great about bad weather, they allow you to work from home so he was sent home at lunch to finish out the day at home. This is what it looked like at noonish time.
By around 5pm it had quit snowing and this is what we were left with. It is extremely cold outside, that is what I can tell you :).
Oh and I can tell you I had a snow day, from the comfort of my recliner :). I had to start reading As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner. Now who wants to volunteer to take my cold? I’m really sick of it. Get it… lol 🙂
