Snow Day?

Last week there was talk of snow in Oklahoma City.  We woke up to nothing but frozen pipes that wouldn't work for over two days.  Last night we went to bed knowing another "storm" was on it's way.   When we peeked through the blinds this morning, it just looked bitter cold.  We decided to forgo the gym anyway, and I basked in sleeping in for an hour longer.  I may not like snow, but Oklahomans, they fear it.  So, maybe I was a little sad when I realized I'd have to go into work this morning after all.  Last year's snowmageddon spoiled me.  While still sitting in bed, taking my sweet time to get moving, the mister walked in to inform me his morning clinic is canceled.  It wasn't five minutes later he walked back in to tell me I could go back to bed if I wanted.  School is also canceled!  Since I work for the University, you guessed it, that means work is canceled, too.  And it's all because of this...



You might have to look real close to see the faint hint of white dusting the sidewalk and street.  I actually had to go outside to figure out what they are even worried about. I'm still not sure.  Jokingly, I asked John if he thought we needed to go buy a shovel?  I just laugh at the things that cause a city to shut down.  As I sit in my pajamas on a cold Thursday morning, you will find me happy as can be.  A necessary snow day or not, I'll take it.

WOW, I’M JEALOUS! Maybe this would be a good day to wrap those exposed pipes so you don't have them freezing again.
