Day seven and the snow is starting to get old. Now there’s ice on top of the snow. Sure, it looks pretty but it’s really not very practical for driving. Walking is not too bad. Thomas and I walked a couple of blocks to a friend’s house to decorate some cookies and we discovered that if you stamp hard enough you can break through the thin layer of ice on top with a fun cracking sound.
We hitched a ride on a friend’s sled on the way home. Well Thomas did anyway.
And when we got home we discovered that not only is it fun to stomp through the ice, it’s also fun to pick it up in big chunks and the throw it on the ground and watch it shatter.
I’m thankful for the fact that I took advantage of a brief break in the weather to do some grocery shopping on Friday. I felt guilty about leaving my computer (and work) for a couple of hours but now I’m just relieved. I bought the prime rib roast for Christmas Day as well as some wine and chocolate so I think we have all that we need in case we have trouble leaving the house over the next week or so.
What a difference a week makes. Last week we were laughing in the face of this excuse for a snowstorm. Now the city’s paralysed by it. ha ha bloody ha.
