Winter's still here

I may have bragged a little in my last post, mentioning how nice the weather in Oklahoma City is/was. And it was. It was two days of 75 degrees with the sun shining in a cloudless blue sky. It was the perfect springesque whether, the kind of weather that pleads for you to come outside and enjoy it's warmth.

On Saturday J and I enjoyed an afternoon run to a nearby park. Something neither one of us had done in quite some time. That would be both run, and run outdoors. It was the perfect kind of day that reminded me why it's essential I live somewhere with nice weather all year round.

While last weekend was near perfect weather wise, I may have failed to mention that within the next few days--today--we'd be getting a crazy snow storm (at least crazy if you aren't used to snow) and bundling up to freezing 18 degree weather. I know,  poor attempt to talk up Oklahoma. But hey, you can't blame me for trying. A girls got to do what a girls got to do to convince people to come visit. Although, I've long since come to terms that the only way we'll be getting visitors is if there's a baby in the picture. Another day, another time.

Moving on. It hasn't started snowing just yet, but there's a 100% chance that it's coming. And hard. Or so they say. So, near the end of work today, we all received emails informing us that the University and clinics will be closed tomorrow.

So, maybe I don't love living in cold places. Nor do I particularly love living where it snows. But I do love living in a place where snow sends people into panic mode, therefore canceling school, work, and shutting down the city for a day or two. What a bunch of babies. So, here's me enjoying the present. Bring on snow day numero uno.

I watched on the news tonight that this is supposed to be a HUGE storm affecting most of the U.S. and could even make history. Here's an article about it...

That being said, we are only supposed to be getting ice storms tomorrow. I can't wait for spring.

I'm glad you get a snow day too! Tomorrow we will need to set up a game of scrabble. Though I might be in bed for awhile, I don't plan on waking up any time early!

YAY! Enjoy your snow day! We haven't had one yet, but my fingers are crossed.

It was 5 degrees when I got up and went to the gym...brrr! Have fun, I use to love snow days when I was a child...I'd love them now too, if only we'd get one.
