Snow day with no snow...

We didn't get any snow yesterday, but the schools are closed today 'for weather'. We have a couple schools in our system that are 'up on the mountain' and if they have to close for icy roads and such, the whole county has to close. So the kids are out for that reason. They love the mountain. I have a love/hate relationship with it. ;)

The Man and I got most of our shopping done in the Big City yesterday. It wasn't for lack of trying to get it all done though. Music Girl kind of derailed us from our plans and we spent more time doing things with her. The Man has said he doesn't want to shop with her again. He says he can tolerate it with me - even when I drag him through all the lingerie departments. But Music Girl is another thing. Oh well. We just have a handful of gifts to get now. No biggie.

Even though the Big City wasn't supposed to get snow, it did. It started sleeting while we were eating at TGIFriday's. And it was full on snowing when we came out of Peebles an hour or so later. The Man was in heaven. Heaven! I kept calling the house to see if it had started there and everytime, nada - nothing. We just got rain and sleet that froze after midnight. ACK!

Just want to add that even though I haven't been commenting the last couple of days, I've still been stalking reading my favorite bloggy friends. You all know how it is at times.

The only time I remember it snowing here, all the testosterone producers 'had' to go 'write' their names in it, if you get my drift (ha! Pun intended). One more reason not to eat yellow snow!
