Yay! SNOW DAY. . . No School!
Wait. . . Never mind. . . .
We might get 1 or 2 days of snow every winter. Or every other winter. Enough to play in, but gone by the next day or two. So not such a drag. No snow shovel needed. Although last year, I did have to try and hoe snow out from under truck tire to get out of the driveway.
But this time, I think we got between 4 and 6 inches. Have a gander.
Here's my front yard. And my 1972 Ranch Style House. Still complete with 1972 dark wood paneling. Painting over it is still on my "things to do before I die" list.
Across the road from my house once was a field, or a pasture. Now it's where the Elberton campus is for Athens Technical College.
The road to my house is a dead end street with only 3 house on it. So it's a bit like being both in town, but in the country, as well. The Technical campus is in the city limits.
So when I left the office yesterday a little after 6 pm, the roads were starting to get a little icy. Temperature was hovering around 32 degrees. . And when I turned onto my road, I sort of had to imagine where the road actually was, since no one had been driving on it.
This is a problem for 2 reasons. One, my pickup truck is only 2 wheel drive. And 2 the road slopes down to my house. So if I get to my driveway, I might not be able to get back out, and back up the hill, until some of this melts.
So being the genius that I am, I parked my truck at the top of the hill. It's that little snow covered blip at the top of the hill.
I was able to get out about 10 this morning. The roads weren't too bad. Here's a photo from the office. Where I am holed up presently with Daisy, the cats, coffee, and diet coke.
My little point and shoot digital camera batteries were dying when I got back to the truck at the top of the hill, but people were out sliding/ sledding beside the road going down to Athens Tech. Cute that you could hear kids laughing across the field.

Where ever you are, I hope you are enjoying snow day as well.
