Day: March 8, 2008

We got about 16 inches of snow in 24 hours. Snow drifts are about 30 inches high–up to my waist. I have no clue how I’m going to get to work on Monday, as the stuff is all around my poor car.

My friend Sarah had to work today at a place located about 3/4ths of a mile from where I live. Instead of her driving all the way home in this crazy weather, she came over and hung out with me. It was the fastest six hours ever. Such a fun time. :)

My car

A tire. Not sure how I’m going to make it to work Monday. I don’t have a shovel. But I do have hands and a broom, so it looks like I’m going to be digging instead of packing tomorrow. *sigh* I did a bit of digging today, and I cleaned off my car. My shoulders are totally aching.

Another tire. *cries*

I really, really, really hope this is the end of this stuff. It took me an hour to get home (8.8 miles) yesterday, and I was scared and tense the whole time. I know, I’m moving to Chicago where I am pretty much guaranteed to have this junk dumped on me on a bi-weekly basis, but at least there are trains in Chicago and I shouldn’t have to drive all the time or scrape my car or dig myself out of two-foot drifts on a weekly basis.

And tamirabeth and zenosidal were supposed to come over today just to hang out and help me pack stuff, but nope. They got snowed in as well. I’m going to have to make up for it this week and DEFINITELY do the kitchen tomorrow! I did manage to pack up some of my bedroom today. Not much more to go in there, it’s probably about 93% done. Aidan’s room is 100% done except for the toys that zenosidal is supposed to help me sort (so he can take some and I can take some and some can go to Goodwill or trash).

Temps are going down to the teens tonight. It’s still snowing. I’m worried all that stuff around my car will turn into ICE and really freeze me in!

And OH MY, I don’t have milk. (Not that it matters. I don’t like milk!) I do have bread though, and Cool Splashers (LOL), and stuff to make cupcakes. I was supposed to make them when Sarah was here, but time really ran away from us. Boo. I also have a kitchen full of stinky trash. Gotta love that.

I am REALLY grateful it wasn’t a workday for me. I hate feeling like I HAVE to go out in this stuff, I feel like I’m putting my life in jeopardy when I have to drive in weather like this.

Seriously, I hope winter’s DONE for now. I’m more than ready for spring.

kpluta, this is all your fault. The heavenly weather controller TOTALLY got the O states mixed up. Although how s/he could have confused Oklahoma with Ohio is beyond me.

I should go out and take pictures. I don’t have to drive in this crap today, so it’ll make for some pretty photos. It hasn’t snowed like this since Aidan was a new little baby, back in 2004. Thank God it’s happening over a weekend.
