New sparkling snow..........

The snow is just starting to fall.  We should have a few inches by tomorrow.  And a few more inches by the weekend........and let's just wait for a mother of a Colorado Low...to blow in and take away all the lovely soft white snow and blow into drifts and then give us a real snow storm.  Yup, that's the norm.  Can't fight it...you have to join it. 

I really can't wait until tomorrow morning after it has been snowing all night long.  BECAUSE...I don't have to go to work tomorrow morning as I did in previous years.  This was my worst day of the year because you had to dodge stupid drivers on the way to work who had forgotten what it was like to drive on icy roads. I was always late that day because everything was backed up. Most times it snowed during the night and you couldn't time it in the mornings before the alarm clock went off...and then you had to scramble to get out of the  house fast enough.  I never have to do that again.  That makes me so very very happy.  Nobody is giving me the stink eye when I get in the office late on the first snow day or any other snow day.  Now I am going to enjoy the snow in the mornings knowing I don't have to "white knuckle" it up.  After a week or so we get used to this shit...and they sand the streets...and all is well.  .

So, tomorrow morning.......this girl is going to sleep in and watch the snow from her bedroom window...with no place to go.

Sounds like a plan to me. TAke pics too please cause there's a fairly large climate difference between our towns as I'm 1,105 miles south of you.

Ah, I remember the first snow after my retirement. I stood by the window, in my robe, drinking my coffee. I giggled! And I didn't feel the least bit guilty about it. I paid my dues and I finally lived long enough to not have to risk life and limb just to get to work.

Enjoy!!!

I love snow storms now that I don't have to drive to work in them. Just sit in my recliner and watch the snow pile up outside my window. Love it!
