It has started to snow - -

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

I had 2 pair from the $$$ store, They are just as good as any but both are gone, where?? I dodn't know.

I was warpping Tues on the kitchen room table but they aren't there now.

Tore this place apart looking for them, But I am 20 min away from the $$ store and we are into a blizzard so I will get some from the little store up the road if I can see where I am going.

It is at a calm now but it kicks up white outs now and then,

5 inches came down since I got up at 8 am. I didn't sleep well last nite so got up and made 2 doz bran blueberry muffins at 3 am

We are being hit hard .... and ttwo more storms to follow. Winds and drifting don't help either.

BF, I have my 2 pairs of scissors from the dollar store and they are great for most things. Terrible weather to venture out in.

The snow just ended here (about 35min east of London) and it started around 6:30am. The sun is out and bright now. I called in at work and said I wouldn't make it. I only live 15 min away but its getting out of my subdivision thats the problem. I made an attempt and got stuck twice. Our road probably won't get plowed until later tonight. I am sure that they are upset at work with the typical "woman" driver comments floating around. It had been dead there and we aren't typically busy this close to christmas time anyway.

Me, reporting from Lake Effect Central.
It's been snowing with blizzard like conditions [read, goodly winds!] since before dawn this morning.
Accumulations of over 10 cm in the sheltered areas, and drifting in the 35-40 cm ranges.
Drive has been blown twice today [NOT by me - YAY!] and you'd never know it. All North and East windows are snow glazed to the point I dunno why I bother with curtains. Nobuddy's looking in them! laf!!
Hubby is tied to the house so he can find his way back with the furbutts - I bet he tries to wring their duty out of them the sooner to get back in.... Gotta love all those folk who don't mind Winter. [snuffle-snort-LAF!]...woodstove is roarin' and I'm not taking a single step outside.

Jeanne was just heading out for the mail & I said "my gawd, are you on an expedition to the pole". She was dressed for it.

Butterfly - next time you get to the $$ store buy yurself anothe 5 pairs and leave them in different places. I figure for a $ I can afford to buy a pair every time I go in. I don't have a clue where things disappear to around here but I hate searching for them so I have my own stash of stuff that only I know where to find them. :P

Ron - hubby does that too. He used to blame it on the kids but the situation didn't improve when the kids moved out.... :roll:

PS - I also buy cheap screw drivers and tape measures.... :?
