Diggin' Out

So I have no idea how much snow we have gotten, it's all blowing around and we are getting alot of drifts so I don't see us be able to get an accurate measurement. LOL.

Anyway, I went to bed last night and it was comin' down pretty hard. Mr. weatherman had said it would be over by 8am this morning. Well, I let myself sleep in alittle since, obviously, I wouldn't be going anywhere today. Got up about 10:30 and it was still coming down....ah well, better luck next time weatherman! I came down to stare out the front door in shock and contemplate how the heck we would get outta here while I could hear dear bf upstairs moving around getting his snow clothes on. This is what we were facing!Thats not my car, it's our neighbors, but I'm sure you get the idea! While dear bf got started shoveling like it was his j-o-b I went upstairs to dig out some snow clothes that wouldn't instantly send me inside soaking wet. I wound up wearing two pairs of pants, a long sleeve tee, hooded sweatshirt, coat, two pairs of socks and my snow boots. I'm not a gloves kind of girl, so none of those. Dear bf had a good start when I finally decided to step outside.
I stood around for a few minutes just enjoying not being stuck in the house anymore. Then bf gave me a task to start cleaning off the car. I had a good start, but, well, it quickly became boring and tedious. haha. Plus, that was the only side of the car that was shoveled, I couldn't exactly walk around to the other side. So I decided to go ahead and start the car so it would get warm and make it easier for me to clean off. Then I started to feel bad for bf who was workin so hard and borrowed our neighbors shovel to start on the other side. Finally got a path around the car and started to clean off the remainder of the car. About halfway through we decided to leave a bit of decoration on the car, figuring we are just gonna have to go out later and shovel some more it would hurt to leave some of what was already there.


After that, we were just too tired to finish so we left it. Now we are warm and snuggly inside. Bf is scheduled to work at his parttime job today but I will be surprised if they are even open for business today and if they are, he has a coworker that can pick him up in their truck.

Not sure what will be going on for the rest of the day, but I have some choices....stitching or cleaning....oh thats a difficult one.....

Sorry you didn't get to see Dear John! It was very sad, but good. Hope you have a great week!

LOL about the Mohawk. BF works at home. The government is closed, and my firm in DC follows the government, so I'm home tomorrow too. TRAPPED! LIKE RATS! LOL.
