"Making the world a better place, one book at a time."

snowed in

We are coming up on day two of winter storm 2011.

Atlanta was blanketed with at least six inches of fine powder that was then covered by a thick layer of ice.  It was beautiful...and treacherous.

Today was spent mostly indoors, although the kids and I managed to grab some fun in the snow with the dogs.  It was a blast watching the dogs run around in the ice covered snow.  They had to crack through the outer shell of ice to get their feet into the soft powder beneath, and it made them run like they were wearing clown shoes. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I would love to write about all the fun we had, but really it was a fairly boring day.  We watched a lot of movies and ate a lot of frozen pizza...oh and we went through half the milk.  It would seem that whomever said milk was mandatory in a winter storm was right.  The minute you can't go to the store, you suddenly crave milk! 

It rained all day today...the freezing kind...and now the roads are covered with a thick layer of ice on top of the snow.  Tomorrow will be another snow day as the department of transportation has suggested that the roads will be worse tomorrow than they were today.  The schools have already announced closings, as have most major businesses and government. 

It should be interesting.  Sort of like the Shining...as we are trapped in the house with the dogs, and two teenage girls.  I don't know how we will survive!

And can we get through another entire day without using up the last of the milk supply? 

Only time will tell...

Until the next time...I'll be snowed in.  Again!
