I’m surrounded… by snow.
I woke up this morning pretty antsy. Whenever I know there’s going to be a lot of snow and bad road conditions, I don’t sleep that well and I get pretty worked up. I truly have a very short commute to work each morning, but it’s all back roads near farm fields with ample drifting and blowing snow. Combine that with the field of potholes big enough to rip your tire off its axel and we’re talking fun driving times.
Is it Spring yet?
So the first thing I did was open the bedroom curtain and survey. I always do this and yet I can’t really ever get a good gauge of how much snow fell or what the road looks like from that far away. But I do it anyway.
Then I log onto my computer and check the weather. The first picture that greeted me:
If a plow can’t handle it, how am I supposed to? Eeeeek!!!
By the way, this storm is named “Q”. Was I living under a rock this entire year or did Winter Storms start to be named by alphabet letters? I know hurricanes / tropical storms are alphabetical names but I’m not up-to-date on Winter Storm naming conventions.
Yesterday was pancake breakfast day in the cafeteria so I snagged a short stack. It’s more $ to eat whatever is in the cafeteria for breakfast and lunch but every so often they have something that looks delicious and I can’t resist (or I’m running behind with no time to pack a meal).
These are smores pancakes. Odd idea but they tasted pretty good. She just took regular pancake batter and then put chocolate chips and marshmallows on top. The marshmallows melt away – so I’m not sure I’d do that again – but the chocolate melty chips were delicious!
I’m getting a serious Spring bug and have been flipping through web sites looking for gardening ideas. Not sure what to do about those pesky rabbits though. I have a feeling I’m going to need some kind of bb gun and an alibi.
But – if we didn’t have local pests, I thought this was a really cool idea:
You can fill with organic soil without needing to dig up your backyard and poke a few holes in the bottom for extra drainage.
I have my yearly health assessment at work – so they’ll prick my arm and draw some blood. Good day to be paranoid about driving in so I can have nice high blood pressure!! Then after work I’ll be a little baking machine. We’re having some friends over for dinner so I’ll have to whip up something fun to eat. Should be good.
Enjoy your Friday. If you’re in the path of Q this weekend, stay safe (and don’t tailgate the poor women driving in front of you, ok?)
