I started hearing earlier in the week that it was going to storm this weekend. I got all excited then realised this wasn’t the right weekend for a snowstorm for me. I’ve got my last EVER academic exam tomorrow. I really want the snow to continue and let me skip school tomorrow, but I also want to get this exam over with.
We’ve been cooped up in the house since yesterday afternoon and I’m starting to go stir crazy. D just re-wrapped the bars on his road bike – guess he wants out as well. We were thinking about going to the YMCA for a run on the treadmills, but it’s closed for the storm.
I took a few pictures of the snow, but it’s really hard to capture the amount if you don’t know what our yard/street look like without it. For my readers who’ve never seen snow, here you go.
See this pile? It was pushed across the road from a neighbour’s driveway onto the sidewalk at the property line between our house and the neighbour’s house. I’m a little annoyed. Yes, our town does plow our sidewalks a while after a storm, but that pile is easily 4 feet high. I don’t think the little sidewalk snowplow is going to get through that. Hopefully the town will realise it’s from the neighbours, not us.
What else. We’ve had a bit of a tree debacle here at the Casa M-P. We got a tree last week ad brought it in and started decorating it the next day. While decorating it suddenly slid towards me. We spent a lot of time on our bellies trying to figure out what was wrong.
We finally figured out it was the stand – it’s got a serious structural failure in the form of a crack. We tried looking for a different/better one, but couldn’t find one. So our tree is now wedged in with a 2×4 and can’t get much water. I think it’s leaning back into the wall now, but at least it’s not as visible.
Ginger’s not impressed.
