I love the snow. Really I do, but I am so sick of snow right now, I could almost scream. Our first big snow storm started on December 8th and it snowed for days. The kids have missed 6 days of school (so far!). Little did we know, that was just the beginning. We had our next big snow storm during Christmas Break. Well, it was officially a blizzard and is now known as "The Christmas Blizzard of 2009”. I must admit, that having a huge snow storm during Christmas was pretty darn cool, especially when we were opening presents while big snowflakes were falling from the sky. But, now here we are at the end of January and we have had several more encounters with Old Man Winter and he hasn't been very polite! Joe has had to use the snowblower more than he ever has before and than goodness we have a big one! Gracie and I have been going through some serious feelings of cabin fever! She and I have made it to the mall as many times as we can, so that she can play in their play area, run around, and just be silly. It feels like we have spent every day of the past two months covered with a thick, dark cloud. The sunny days have been so rare. And, the roads are horrible! We went a long time with most roads being about half their width, so two lane roads were one and 4 lane roads were just two. There was so much snow and no place to put it all, so it came into the street for several feet on each side of the road. Now, when I hear that we are expecting more snow, I just cringe! I want to see the curbs on the street, I want to see the ground, I want to see something besides WHITE! But, like I said, I really do love the snow.....just not this much!
