But then again those that are here can participate in all of the threads titled "Who remembers the snowstorm of Jan 10?" and we can all tell our over exaggerated stories about snow drifts 5 feet tall, power outages for 3 weeks, and gas lines and people were scrambling for snow shovels and sleds and bananas and potted meat!
This is hilarious, and OH so true!!!

I'm a little worried since my Husband has to work until around midnight, unless they decide to close work for him early. I'm also worried about electricity and and TWC staying up since I work at home and all weekend long. I'll drop an email to the bosses "just in case" I have a feeling all will be fine though.

On funny note, The toilet seat broke off in one of my bathrooms LOL So I am hoping maintenance will be able to come replace that before the end of the day.

Try it with one of the exotic Coffee creamers and a bit a condensed milk - it tastes really yummy
