It's here. Again. Snow. Yes, more snow. It was snowing hard as I came into work this morning and they're calling for another foot of snow today through tomorrow.


I think I've had enough. I keep telling myself, "four more weeks till Spring, four more weeks..." but it doesn't help much as you're walking down an icy street with cold, wet precipitation fallling on your neck. This is heavy, wet snow. The kind that snaps tree limbs and brings down power lines. And we're expecting heavy winds with it (I heard someone use the words "snow hurricane" yesterday) so getting around will once again be an adventure.

I think it's a good day to climb into bed and pull the covers over my head. There's a half finished pot of soup in the refrigerator for dinner. I carefully instructed Elanor on how to get it ready for dinner. We simmered a chicken carcas and leftover meat and now the bones have to be picked out and the broth strained and de-fatted. When I get home, I'll heat it up and throw in some vegetables and noodles and we'll have nice, hot soup and comforting grilled cheese sandwiches.

For today, I'm going to sit here at my desk and watch the snow fall and hope they'll let us go home early. And dream of this.
