We were supposed to be on the northern edge of this latest storm. They said 1-3" of snow. They lied. We got about 9" overnight and it's still coming down.
But honestly, I've no business complaining. For one thing, as I begin day 7 of Rich's absence, this is only the second time we've got more than a couple inches and hence, only the second time I've had to shovel. Secondly, it was the light and fluffy type of snow. Not to mention, our driveway really isn't all that big. Yeah, and there's that thing about me really needing the exercise anyway. And finally, I absolutely love snow...so it's really no fair to bitch about it, is it?
Oh, and maybe best of all, as the boys are happily drawing and watching a Scooby Doo movie and Miss Annie has her nose buried in a book, I will feel no guilt as I go curl up with my own book and a large mug of tea. I worked hard enough for one morning...or at least that's what I'm telling myself. ;)
