Snow day

We got out early yesterday due to the forecast. It flurried all day yesterday, and the blizzard was going to hit last night. All kinds of advisories and warnings. Bread and milk bought, cars gassed up. General hysteria abounded, mostly on the part of the newscasters. Weather forecasts every five minutes all evenings. Schools cancelled last night for today. 

We got maybe four inches. 

States in New England had a real blizzard, but not us. Oops.

It's nice being off, no question about that! Stayed up later, slept in, made eggs and pork roll for breakfast. Bread pudding in the crockpot, meat loaf planned for dinner. Laid on the couch and finished the book I was reading. Finished Amary's hooded cowl last night, plans to start Joey's hat today. Facetimed with Manda, Ben and Amary last night. 

Ralph used the snowblower on our yard and Mom's. No paper delivery, due to the state of emergency, which is now lifted. 

So it's a snow? day, rather than a snow day. And more is predicted for Friday.
