Ice, Ice Baby

This hardly ever happens...we were hit with an ice storm overnight, with more freezing rain expected today, and I got a call from my boss this morning telling me not to try to drive in to work.

Whoo-hoo!

So I got back into my stretchy pants and MSU sweatshirt...lingered over my coffee...read the Morning Prayer...read through some chapters in Exodus where God is getting really bipolar...and am getting ready to clean my oven. A lone car has ventured past on the glassy blacktop. A gaggle of goldfinches are snacking on my thistle sack; a nuthatch is pulling sunflower seeds from my gen-u-wine squirrel-proof Duncraft feeder. It's going to be a good day, at least as long as the power stays on.

Sweet! Enjoy your day. I managed to shovel out of another foot of snow this morning, after doing the same thing twice yesterday, so alas -- here I am at the office. Sigh...I covet your stretchy pants and sweatshirt!

Remind me, down here in moisture-starved Oklahoma--what does precipitation look like?

I could really use a snow day, or an ice day. (Don't remind me that I had a holiday yesterday, okay?)

We had one of those not that long ago, but the ice caused the lights to go out for about 6 hours. Not fun when you have an 11 year old.

Oh my gosh! Is Cody a Maltese? He must be!

I have two: Josie and Boudreaux. Greatest dogs ever. (Besides Cody of course!)
