Good times.. I bet LoCo schools will be closed the whole week. Wishing there was a way to fly to Miami or something tomorrow.. But the airport probably has lots of delays.

Where's that @$#&*$# Wooly Bear! He has some 'splaining to do.

I'm ok with shovelling the driveway again on Tuesday but I just don't know where we'll put any more snow. Our driveway is already a such a tower of snow that at the bottom we have the blue coloring you usually see in glaciers. And while it's somewhat amusing to have a towering snow tunnel, I can only throw the shovelfuls of snow so high.

Oops, my bad! The "W" words are all starting to look alike, I guess. Thanks for the good catch, y'all!

Looks like it will be starting around noon, and they're calling for snow. Not "flurries", not "light snow", not "snow showers". Just "snow." That's not a good sign.
