2nd Day of Being Snowed In

Last week, we began hearing about a Winter Storm that was heading our way. I really didn't pay much attention to it. Most of the time it turns out to be nothing ... school was closed yesterday and today. I guess it didn't turn out to be "nothing"!

I did go to the grocery store on Saturday to stock up on food items. I am glad I went on Saturday. Sunday, the grocery stores were packed. We have supplies for power outages just not in SC. We have a generator, camp stove, lamp, snow shovel, ice melt, etc. But it is ALL in NC. I contacted our realtor who happens to live in our NC neighborhood on Saturday to find out if we could even get to the house. It would have been too dangerous. She said the road in front of our house was very icy. Her husband's truck was in the ditch across from our house. Hopefully they have gotten it out. On the news this morning, that area has a chance of receiving 6 - 10 more inches of snow today. Oh my!!!! That is WAY too much. I like the 6 - 8 inches we received here in SC, but I would not want to get more on top of it.

Yesterday, everyone was home and bored ... I had plenty to do since it was Monday. The girls did go out twice to play in the snow. I love the snow but only to look at. I do NOT enjoy being out in it.

Today, Myron went into work after lunch. He did call me when he got there. He said the interstate was fine but the other roads were very bad with ice. I do hope he will not be too late getting home tonight. It is supposed to be 17 degrees in the morning which means all the slush will re-freeze.

The girls have loved playing in the snow. I do believe they have played more outside here in SC than they ever did in NC. The only downside is that we don't have a good place for sledding in our yard.

I have no idea what they were doing. I guess Sarah thought she was at the beach.

The girls mounded up snow then carved the snowman out of the mound. I had to add the AU scarf since they were playing in the BCS game that night. WAR EAGLE!!!

Butterscotch did not seem to mind the snow at all. He was so funny with snow covered on his face. It was not funny when he wanted to come inside and had snowballs all in his fur.

This is where Kitty spent most her day ... curled up on the swing.

The girls are starting their mound for their snowman. I know, the pics are out of order.

I do not know what is in store for school tomorrow. I do at least hope it is a delay. My driveway is still covered although the road outside our house looks drivable. I just saw a City of Greer truck go by plowing the road. As I stated before, I love the snow; I just do not like driving in it. I wish it would snow but not on the roads. Is that too much to ask?

I hope everyone has a good evening!!!
