Canceled

After four months of planning, my girls' trip to NYC was canceled. Because of snow. "Snowpocalypse", actually, because that's the ONLY thing that could have kept us out of the city this weekend! Bloggers Gone Wild!!! I feel as defeated as this poor pampas grass...



It seems that I went to bed one night and woke up in Whoville. Unfortunately, the holidays are over, and there was no brightly-lit tree to circle while singing cheery carols. I have discovered the reason that the Grinch holed up in a cave with his little dog.......he HATED the freakin' snow! It all makes sense now.

Snow White drove her car today for the first time in two weeks. She was ecstatic! Me? Not so much. I'm a bit of a worrier.


Cool Breeze has done an excellent job of keeping our sidewalks and driveway as clear as possible. I've helped, but he's done the bulk of it. The ONLY bright spot in all of this has been watching our dog enjoy every. last. minute. of his time in the snow! He will certainly miss the evil white stuff snow if it ever goes away.


Excuse me. I need to go make a phone call...

Amtrak is a wimp ... 3-6 ft of snow and some fallen trees? That's the reason they canceled service? WIMPS!

Sorry the trip is off... but y'all will reschedule soon I hope!

I've the same sentiments about our snow - I helped move some but Soup Husband did most of it. It's truly crazy out there... safer inside.

Hello, Wine One One? Please send a case!

At least there was wine, oysters and lots of laughter at the Superbowl party... can we do it again. NOW?

That is sad! I'm going to have to find something to drink on your behalf now. Such pressure.

I was bummed for you way out here in Rainville.

Did they answer the phone on the first ring?

Awww. I'm so sorry! We had our own little snow adventure way down here and I STILL haven't stopped talking about it! But it really sucks when it completely destroys the best laid plans. :-(
