Snow, Snow and more Snow……

We are in the middle of a blizzard here in Minnesota.  We already had a good 8 to 10 inches of snow on the ground.  It has been snowing all day and it is expected to receive about 12 more inches before this is done.  We have been out shoveling many times already today.   The nice thing is it is pretty warm to be out shoveling.  It is currently about 32 degrees out!  Anything above 0 is always nice.  

Hubby just sent me an email and the college is being closed today at 1:00 and closed all day tomorrow.  Trust me if they are closing school in the city it is bad.  My kids never have had a snow day in the 8 years we have lived here.  We are used to alot of snow. 

This morning I saw the weather and decided not to drive into work.  I am grateful to have a job that allows that. I have nearly an hour commute some days.  It would have been way longer today.  

Our furnance started making a weird noise so we had a service call to make sure it was ok and that we would have heat all weekend.   Way to cold to be without heat!    Tommy also woke up crying with a sore throat and his ear bugging him.  So good thing I am staying home.   I most likely will be home tomorrow as well.  Next weekend Erik doesn’t have school on Monday nor Tuesday so I will need to be home both of those days, but plan to go to the office in the evening after hubby gets home from work.   It is getting harder and harder on my employment to switch this all around, but we don’t have any other choice. 

Well hubby is home so I am going to go work in our bedroom.  At least I am able to VPN into my work computer to use it.  I should get a few hours in today yet.   Have a great Day!

Our Snowy Front Yard….Not sure you can really see how big the piles are!

  1. BRRRR…hearing about your weather makes me cold!! We are 40 here today (wa) and I am freezing!!! 🙂
    Thanks for the birthday wishes, yep, my mom painted the rooster, she is so good, but she only paints for “fun”. She has never sold a painting.


  2. I agree that is a LOT of snow!  Don’t you just love VPN priviledges?  I use it a LOT for my work too – so convenient – working from home in my pj’s pullig overtime!
