First Snow Day of 2011

For most of the week, forecasters had been predicting snow for our area, and it finally came on Sunday night!  We ended up getting around 3-4 inches, which isn’t much, but it’s enough to send people around here into a frenzy and close schools and many businesses.  Fortunately, Stephen and I both got to stay home from work today, so we have had a great time.  I made biscuits and eggs for breakfast, and then we went out in the backyard with Bailey. She had a blast running around in the snow.  We also went for a walk around our neighborhood loop, and even though it was cold, the snow made everything look beautiful.  Here are some pics we took of our house and neighborhood:

I would love to have another snow day tomorrow, but the roads are looking pretty clear, and there is no more snow coming, so it looks like back to work for us!  Still, I am always grateful for an extra day off, especially when I get to take a nap. 🙂 

Did you get snow?  How much?

My lovely, new, readable background is courtesy of Steven. And if you read the comments in my previous post, you would see that he also shared news that I was aware of but nevertheless very excited about. Snow is on the forecast for tomorrow! Here is the forecast from Yahoo! Weather: Rain showers early mixing with snow showers later in the day. Cooler. High 41F. Winds N at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precip 60%. Snow showers, people! I know I really shouldn’t be getting all that excited because Tennessee weather is notoriously mercurial, but I can’t help myself. I love snow, and we never get enough (or any sometimes), so if I could just see a little before I go home for a few weeks, I would be ecstatic. And then there’s the fact that I absolutely hate driving in snow, but I’m not gonna dwell on that. Nor am I going to complain about my paper, or anything else, for the rest of the week. I’m aware that I’ve been downright whiny lately, and I know no one loves reading that, so I’m suspending my negativity for a week. (Baby steps, people, baby steps.) Then if that works, I may even try for two weeks! I don’t know if it’s possible to be born naturally pessimistic, but if it is, then I was. That does not, however, mean I have to stay that way. So optimism, here I come! (I hope this works. Hehe.)
