I think this is appropriate today…
I did go to the grocery store pre-storm, but no Facebook post!
Texted the kids once to see if anyone was going to work and make sure the grandkids were all home from school!
And here’s my old, arthritic Chief, trying to figure out what to do with this snow! We are up to 10 and a half inches (on top of the four we had) and expecting three inches more by the end of Sunday. Crazy weather!
Instead of me! I’m home in IL from Hawaii, just in time for THIS! At least hardly anybody is going anywhere today and I have groceries in the house.
The picture on the left is my front yard and you can see how much snow is on the bench. The other picture is the hot tub and that’s the grill on the left.
My poor old dog followed me out while I was trying to shovel him a path cause we have about 9 inches of snow and expecting more all weekend. He, of course, had to be first and plunged into the snow that was up to his tummy and just stood in one spot until I shoveled him out!
It’s been super cold here in the Midwest (high of ten degrees today, low of 12 below last night) but we’re expecting warm ups by this weekend and maybe even 40 degrees one or two days next week! Hallelujah! We have some snow, but only three or four inches. And the sun is shining brightly, hence the really, really cold temps. When it hits above freezing I may attempt to clear the driveway, but really, if I can drive over the snow, does it matter?
But the East Coast was hit with a “bomb cyclone” recently, with more than a foot of snow in many places and now dropping temps. Is that even a real term or just something the weather people made up? (Okay, I looked it up and yes, it’s a real meteorological term so if you want to know what brings the snow and cold, you can look it up online, too, 😉 ) To all my East Coast friends and family, please stay safe and warm! Hopefully we will get through January and February here in the States and on to better weather…
We’re expecting a high of about 4 degrees today. Actual temperature, not wind chill. Crap. Chicago Bears/Green Bay Packer tickets for Soldier Field were selling for $40 – $45 yesterday. Not just because of the weather, I’m sure 🙂
More scary snow forecasts for the Midwest. It never hurts to be prepared, right?
