Good news and a white Christmas? (pics)

The good news is that my breast is doing much better today. I’m still treating it until it’s completely healed, but it is feeling so much better already. I remembered last night that I have a rice heating pad, so I had Jody warm it up in the microwave for me and I used it a few times throughout the night. That helped a lot.

The other news is that we are in the middle of a huge blizzard expected to dump up to 2 feet of snow (or more) by tomorrow evening. We already have at least 6 inches I would say and it’s only supposed to continue throughout the day today, tonight and into tomorrow. Jody’s company let them leave early and he’s on a bus headed for home as I type. My parents, who were planning on driving home to MI tomorrow, are likely staying at least an extra day. And my sister, who’s last exam of the semester was scheduled for tomorrow, will probably have that postponed, as the majority of schools in the area are closed due to the weather.

Ava and my mom are decorating a gingerbread house right now, while Julian is sleeping on my dad’s chest. I’m going to jump in the shower while I have the chance. 🙂

Hope everyone stays warm, and those affected by this blizzard stay safe.

“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas…”

Update: At 6 p.m. we have at least a foot of snow and it’s still coming down.
Another update: At nearly 9 p.m., we have about 2 feet of snow and it’s still snowing! This is the most we’ve ever seen while living here (the past 6 years).

  1. And here we are enjoying some summer sun and the plums on the plum tree are ripening!
    Hope everyone stays safe and warm then.

    Glad the bb is getting better!

    Mmm – gingerbread house 🙂 Tim & I made gingerbread men the other day.

  2. lots of fun eh?

    I *made* Dh call in to work this morning, there was no way I wanted him driving to Denver, especially since he would be driving home after 7pm! Its unpaid but I don’t care, I told him “one unpaid day is better than no more days with you evah!” heh.

    I went out to try and clean off my porch, and the drifts are above my waist in some places!!

    Stay warm! Glad your boobie is better 😀

  3. Please view these two videos and check out the website that follows. Even if you do not agree with all of it, we all need to have a better grasp of what truly happened on 9/11/01 in the US, 3/11/04 in Spain, and 7/7/05 in the UK. We cannot count on the Democrats to deal with the fact that criminal elements in our government were involved in 9/11. They have already unequivocally announced that impeachment of Bush is off the table. The only way for us to assure that we do not fall prey to another 9/11 is to make the truth behind 9/11 so widely known, that the traitorous perpetrators of 9/11 would be deterred from executing another false flag attack for fear that it would have the opposite effect that 9/11 had on the people. So please share this with others if you feel compelled, as I do.

  4. Glad you are feeling better- and isn’t the snow amazing? I can’t remember ever seeing this much snow in our town! Joe was supposed to go to WY for work and fly- needless to say he never left the house which ended up being good since the airport closed. Hope you are all staying warm.

  5. What kind of car you have? All that snow makes it look like a big truck! lol… Wow! that is a lot of snow! makes me cold just looking at it!

  6. Well, I hate to say while you were having two feet of snow, it was a cool 84 degress down here in South Texas.
    Sorry! Good ol tangerines fresh off the tree, grapefruit and oranges, too.
