Groundhog Dump

OK, I have a secret.

As much as I complain about how I hate the cold and snowy winter here in Chi-town...

I love a good snow day!!!! This blizzard stuff is actually pretty cool if you don't have to go out in it, and if you don't know anyone else who has to go out in it.

My office closed early today and will most likely be closed tomorrow. Yay! Of course, we are all "encouraged" to work from home tomorrow, but sitting on the couch working in your PJ's sure beats showering, donning dress clothes, fixing your hair, putting on makeup, and trudging 5 blocks in the heavy snow to work. Who cares if I get a little stinky from not showering tomorrow? Iwanski will just have to deal with it.

I think I'll make a big pot of soup tonight and just embrace the gift of solitude that Mother Nature has given us today.

And I'm not gonna even think about how annoying it's gonna be to trudge through the snow in single-degree temperatures on Thursday morning.

Not even gonna think about it!

we're expected to receive a big load of snow tomorrow as well. it has just started to lightly snow in the past couple of hours...just enough to make the roads slippery. we both enjoy working from home, so let's just hope the power and the internet stay on ;) enjoy your snow day!!

I'm all for staying in when the weather is bad. As long as you have electricity and heat....and that soup sounds good, I'd say you are good to go!!
I hope you and your hubby are feeling good.

Being snowed in with the one you love is a pretty nice thing. Enjoy.

Crazy snow in Chicago. Makes for good adventures though. Now get back to work ;-)


where my idea of winter is gray clouds on a 50's day..the below zero weather and rolling black outs is not my idea of a good time.
