The view from our bedroom yesterday... a lot of this melted.
The view from our bedroom this morning... it's coming down fast and furious!
The original forecast according to weather.com was 3-5 inches. I think we're past that and the snow shows no sign whatsoever of stopping.
I saw one of our neighbors dutifully shoveling the sidewalk by his house. I think our snow shovel is broken.
In a way, this is a bit of a bummer because I have been holed up in the house for the past couple of days and am a little stir crazy. In another way, it's a bit of a thrill, because I haven't been home for a good snow storm in years. Since 2009, we've lived in Georgia, North Carolina, and Texas. We got a little wimpy dusting of snow in North Carolina and a couple of significant snows in Georgia, one of which actually kept Bill snowbound for a day or two because we lived in a very rural area. But there was nothing in Texas, obviously.
We did run into snow in Virginia last month. Naturally, it melted very quickly. According to the forecast, it looks like this snow will stick around for awhile. The temperatures over the next few days are slated to be very cold.
Bill left our window cracked last night and I have to admit, I slept well with the cold air circulating over our down covered bed. The two beagles were all snuggled in with us and it was very cozy. I didn't wake up until after 9:00am, which for me is unheard of. My days of sleeping until noon ended with adolescence.
Well... it's a good thing we stocked up on beer last weekend. Looks like we'll be sitting around drinking a lot of it today. Maybe later, the dogs will want to take a romp near the forest. I can finally break out the faux fur lined snow boots and parka I bought last time we lived here. God, I love living in Germany! Wish we had a fireplace. Also wish we had a snow shovel.
Dogs enjoying the snow! Zane loves it, but Arran wasn't interested in staying out too long.
Poor Bill. Through force of habit, I locked the door. He was out in the cold!
