Snowed In

Posted in Journal tagged , , , , at 10:12 pm by Jenn

For the last 36 hours it’s been snowing in the Washington Metro Area.  We’ve accumulated somewhere between 20-30 inches depending on where you live.  It’s probably around 20-24 here in Upper Marlboro.

The city has come to a virtual stand still, much like it did in 2003.  That’s the last big snow I remember in this area, other than what hit us last month.  I’m beginning to take this personally.  I heard on the news tonight that we’ve gotten more snow so far this winter than in the last 5 winters combined.  That’s funny.  I think this is my first winter here in just about that long.  Scott and I moved to NC just before the end of 2004.  Hmmm.

Max has had a wonderful time.  He loves the snow.  I’m not even bothering to put his coat on.  It’s more trouble than it’s worth and he doesn’t have his boots.  His fur is short enough right now that the snow really isn’t balling up so why bother.  Here’s a few pictures of him, Molly and Zachary out in the snow around noon today.


So what do you do when the snow is coming down outside and you’re trapped inside?  A lot of nothing that’s what.  I did manage to get my homework for the week finished.  I knit several rows on my new sweater project and I’ve been tinkering with the blog.  I’m trying to decide on renaming and redesigning.  I have several ideas for the new design, but I’m really torn on renaming.

I’m also drinking some wine and watching Harry Potter.  White this evening.  Riesling from Cousino-Macul.  This is a Chilean Vineyard that Scott has visited.  He brought several bottles of red home in December.  They were yummy.  The Riesling is a little dryer than I’m used to, but it’s good.  I bought 3 bottles on Thursday.  Bottle 2 is well on it’s way to being history.
