Mother Nature punked us

Our entire county and the surrounding ones were all braced for a mega-storm, which was forecasted to dump anywhere from 6″ to 10″ of wet, heavy snow on us, and in a relatively short period of time. Since the worst was expected to happen at two separate times, first in the late morning, and then in the late afternoon. Given the times the snow was supposed to be really bad, the schools went ahead and closed – ours called at 5:27am to confirm that school would be closed today. Likewise for many other schools in and around our county.

Well, we all got punked. There was a light dusting of snow on the ground this morning, some rain off and on throughout the afternoon…and nothing else. We got barely an inch of snow, let alone the predicted 10″ of it. So, our school-less and snow-less day was pretty low key. Alyssa and Ryan were disappointed that there was no snow to go sledding in, but they weren’t too upset.

Despite sleeping in until nearly 10am, I’m really tired right now. I suspect the space heater running full blast + slight dumping from a small granola bar may have something to do with that. Today I organized some kitchen cabinets, made dinner, and did a bunch of magpie squealing over a big box of makeup and skin care products that I was sent to review.

How was your day?

  1. So far so good over here on the other side of the world. It’s 9 in the morning, my boss has yet to come back from his daughters driving test and the navy is continuing their ‘THE SKY IS FALLING’ due to this sequestration crap. But inside my little bubble all is okay, nothing bad to report save the hubby being away at sea.

    Glad to read that you are feeling okay. I really do need to check back more often.. I’m horrible at both reading and posting now >_>

    • Well, good morning to you. :) Yay for timezone differences, eh? I’m glad that things in your bubble are good, but I’m so sorry that your husband is away right now. I don’t think I would strong enough to handle that, and for that I especially admire both military service members as well as their spouses, children, and other immediate family members.

      I’m doing good, just tired, having trouble getting comfortable at night; and if I push myself too much, I swell up like a damn balloon. So, less movement is better these days. ;)

      I read regularly, your blog included…I just need to get better at commenting!

    This side of PA (towards Pitt), we got about 4 inches of snow, freezing rain and snow mix, and that’s about it. 5 hours later, all the snow was melted. Our roads didn’t get bad either. I promised my 3.5 year old that he could go out and make a snow man when Daddy got home from work — well, as I said, the snow had melted by then. Needless to say, my son was mad at me, because y’know, us mothers control the weather and everything else, lol.

    Glad to see you’re doing better. Believe me I feel your pain. Like you, if I move too much, the pain is overwhelming and I am swelled beyond believable. I actually gained 18 lbs in 8 days because of the swelling and filling up with fluids. And I never knew that about PA — the insurance thing you’ve mentioned. I have insurance but you never know what’ll happen, so thanks for the info! I hope you get everything squared away and have no more problems. =)
