Well, I got my wish! After Scott went out & tried to snowblow the 1" of sleet (didn't work!) it started snowing. Real snow. Big fluffy flakes of snow. It snowed for hours. Both my school & the kids' school canceled classes before 10pm! We woke up to a winter wonderland (I slept in until 7am!! That NEVER happens!) It was soooo pretty!
Scott had to work yesterday but was able to leave really late so he missed the icky roads. The kids and I got out to run to the Post Office, the bank, the library and the LSS (which was closed :( ). The roads were really clear. The street dept really did a great job.
Here is my favorite pic of the day tho. This time, the snowblower worked! Well!

We were supposed to get a huge storm yesterday. Well, we got sleet overnight. There was supposed to be more snow in the morning so all the schools were canceled, just in case. Nothing happened all day. We did get about an inch and a half of sleet. Seems like we never get snow anymore. Cold weather, yes. Ice, yes. Snow, not so much. Global warming at work?? If I buy a Prius & replace my light bulbs w/CFLs, will I get more snow???

I've been tagged Today I was tagged by the talented Barb to take part in a fun little blog tag. Here is the instructions: 1. Go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your pictures. 2. Go to the 6th Folder, then pick the 6th picture in that folder. 3. Post that picture on your blog and the story that goes along with the picture. 4. Tag 6 other people that you know or don’t know to do the same thing and leave a comment on their blog or an e-mail letting them know you chose them.
The way I store my pics is bizzare so maybe I'm not following the rules totally. I have a digital pic file. In that file I have folders for years. Not quite 6 folders yet so I just picked last years pics. This is the 6th folder, for August 2008. Inside the 6th folder, I have 4 more folders, inside the first folder, I had 2 folders. So this is from the 6th folder in 2008 and the the first folder, first folder, 6th pic. This is in Schaumburg IL, on our vacation last year. We've stayed at this hotel about 4 times. The pool is outdoors & the weather hasn't always cooperated so the kids could swim. But this time, it did. We had a great time swimming (and sunning) until a group of 3 older adults showed up & started taking over the pool & getting upset 'cause the kids were loud & splashing. HELLO?!?! It's a pool. So, we went back to our room. The kids were ok w/that 'cause the room had Becca's computer & Nick's video games.
Ok, now to Tag 6 people. Hmmmm
Tracey -- Fence Posts
Debbie -- Shoe Closet
Vicki -- Angel Stamper
Cindi -- Hooked on Crafts
Pam -- Stamping with Serendipity
Here was the plan yesterday: I was going to the SU Open House, Scott was taking his mother shopping and the kids wanted to go with him. I was going to lunch w/my girlfriends, Scott could figure out what he wanted to do when lunchtime rolled around. I was going to spend the afternoon going thru my new catalouge and eating the coconut cream pie I brought home from Josephine's.
