Go Away Snow!!!! (And a giveaway)

There has already been waaaaaay too much snow here this winter. We've had 5 snow days so far. We had close to 9 inches about 11 days ago. Not fun. That is also taller than my dog is. My husband had to shovel a path through the grass to the street sign where he likes to pee. His poo spot is in the backyard where the snow drifted as high as my knee. But Max managed to jump and hop his way back there, and we felt he deserved to have a place to poo without tunneling under the snow, so we were able to clear a big area for him.

Most of snow managed to stick around for a week and then started melting. It's almost gone now. But you know what's in the forecast for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday? Big storm. Massive storm. 1 to 1.5 inches of ice, followed by 1 to 2 feet of snow. FEET. We'll see how true the forecast is. It's possible it could not be as bad. Or it could be worse. Ugh.

Monday morning update: The freezing rain hasn't arrived yet. It will be here by noon. Now they are calling for up to 1 inch of ice and 12 inches of snow for my vicinity. But we are on the line where they are forecasting 18-24 inches of snow. So we'll see how this goes. I hope the roads don't get bad before the buses bring the kids home.

Giveaway time! Up for grabs today are these 2 little zipper pouches. I haven't given anything away in a long time, and I am making it so easy to win. Be sure to check back on Monday, February 7, to see if you've won. All you have to do is leave a comment below letting me know if you have had enough snow and snow days this winter, or if you want more snow. And for those of you who are currently where it is warm, can I come visit?


  1. We haven't had too much snow here in Oklahoma, YET! We had some ice about 2 weeks ago. They are predicting anywhere from 4-18" of the white stuff here starting overnight today. Enjoy having your kids home! This teacher is ready for a snow day! :o)
