...is currently in effect in my area. We woke up to 7-8 inches this morning and it has now started to snow again. I included the following picture because it shows the snow accumulation on top of the table.
It started snowing yesterday around 2 pm. I got a little nervous when it was still snowing 4 hours later and I realized that I was out of some grocery essentials...me and everyone else in my neighborhood. The grocery store was packed with people- imagine Wednesday night before Thanksgiving...only worse. I was only buying a few things, milk, cheese, bananas, tortillas (you know- the essentials) but it still took me almost 20 minutes to get through the check-out line. The guy in front of me was buying a cart full of Lean Cuisine meals and yogurt, apparantly those were his essentials.
As we watched Lost last night, the ticker along the bottom of the screen listed schools and other placed that were going to be closed today. I even got a call from Seth's preschool teacher saying that his school was cancelled for today. Jon anxiously waited for any news of his school being closed. No luck. Everything in our town is closed today- public schools, government offices, library, etc...except Jon's school.
So it's kind of nice today to have an excuse to stay home. My kids are begging me to let them go outside and play in all this snow, but that is a "Daddy job" so they have to wait until he gets home this afternoon.
I'm really missing Arizona right now.
