Snow is a four-letter word and it's very much with us here in Ohio. It started at around three yesterday afternoon and hasn't stopped and we have a foot of snow so far. I guess the main drags are clear but no one is moving unless there's an emergency.

The party the Jeffster and I were supposed to attend last was cancelled because of the weather. I was disappointed for him but such is life in the Buckeye State. He told me to pack a bag and he and Shaughn would be over to get me and we would weather the storm together. I put Miss Ruby in the driveway out back so she wouldn't get towed. I packed some clothes, grabbed some fresh pasta, sauce and meatballs I'd frozen from the fridge, and a bottle of wine and some DVDs and my Scrabble game for entertainment AND my lil' laptop so I could keep up with y'all !!!

So I'm at his house ensconced in the guest room with Shaughn as my roomie. Actually, we're having fun except we're glued to the radio to see if the Symphony's performance is cancelled -- just about everything else is so far. We took Shaughn out for his walk and he had fun with some of the kids in Jeff's as well as trying to catch the snowballs Jeff and I were lobbing at each other. It's too deep to make snow angels. Sigh.

Just about everything is cancelled so far. And there is snow in the forecast for the next week. Jeff is a tad worried because he was planning to head back to Florida with Shaughn at the end of the week but it doesn't look very good. I hope Brice or Joey shovels me out. I may not see Miss Ruby again until spring thaw. I shouldn't really complain because we haven't had a huge snow storm until now. Then again, complaining about the weather is a Ohio tradition.

Hope y'all are having a great day.

Happy Blogging!!!!!



  1. I don't think I would enjoy being snowed in by myself. I like being by myself unless I know it's impossible to get to anyone else. Then I need to have someone around with skin on. Sounds like you're having fun so enjoy yourself and be thankful you're not enduring it by yourself. Have a fun time.

  2. Our snow has gone all gray and nasty---it's cold as anything but we get no new white stuff. the combo of gray and cold is really depressing.

  3. Nice to know there are people out there (you) who don't treat a big snowstorm as if they are one of the seven Pontipee brothers waiting for the Spring thaw. :)

  4. Darn weather changes everything....RATS! Well, at least you're there and have everything you need...kinda sounds like big pajama party. The snow dictates a lot Kay...just go with the flow. Have fun. Happy weekend..... Hugs, Joy

  5. Sounds like a fun adventure :)

    Too bad the party was canceled. Must have been hard on the hostess with all that extra food.

    Have fun with scrabble. David bought 2 rotating sets for our party, set for next month. We plan to do a dry run tonight. It's been over 10 years since I played, so it will be a challenge.

  7. I hope the weather breaks soon. We have been moaning about the snow of late, I bet ypu would think it laughable that we complain about a couple of inches of the stuff!

  8. its hard to imagine with our shirt-sleeve weather. Well, maybe a sweater. but no snow even on the ground anymore, pretty much all melted except in the north shadows.
    stay warm

  9. I try to get Ron interested in card games or board games during this time inside but he won't go for it. He works crossword puzzles and watches his normal television programs. I'm glad you are with Jeff and enjoying friendship during the big snow. Yes, I have no right to complain about our weather after hearing about yours.

  10. We are....;and you have added to it. :)

  11. Ya got too much snow ,Kay ? Toss some up my way,eh I like snow!
