Snow way out…

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

We are snowed in. We have had snowfall for days… and an ice storm last night. This leaves an interesting imprint in its wake, packed snow…ice sheet and then more snow. This makes making an igloo difficult and driving impossible and heating expensive. It also makes it impossible to get iced tea with lemonade and chocolate. And now I am acutely aware I am an addict. I am addicted to caffeine. I did not realize to what extent until I got snowed in. Now I am searching for people to be angry at for my lack of caffeinated goods and the slightly-out-of-control feeling rising inside brings it to the forefront of my conscious. I am a caffeine addict. Maybe for my News Year resolution I should give up caffeine.

However, at this moment…that sounds like the worst idea on earth. We will see…

It looks like, whether we want it or not, we are going to have a white Christmas. I feel relieved I did not wait till the last minute to send things out or to get things. We celebrated the 12 days of winter in lieu of Christmas day. Our last day was today and it went well. =) Now, no matter the weather, I can play my new game, 1701 A.D. Gold, for the holiday. Fun for me.

Here are some random snow shots of my powdery prison for you to enjoy.
