Bailey has a snow beard
Last night, while we were sleeping, our little world got painted in fluffy, sugary snow. Depending on where you measure, we got between 4-7 inches. Up in Maryland, some places got a foot! Federal agencies were on a 2-hour delay, and my Whacky Jackie in Florida tells me that the College Board Reston Office closed today (as did NYC). Wimps! *scoff*
Mike left today for a business trip, which meant that when I got home, I had to shovel the snow. I didn’t mind, though. I’ve never done it, and there’s a certain excitement to doing something new, whether it’s shoveling snow or trying out a new shampoo. (My life is simple…)
Unfortunately, I couldn’t get pictures of myself shoveling snow (that would be lame and dorky to set the camera up or, worse, ask a neighbor…), but I did get pictures of some other things…
It’s also been super windy all day, which make my walk to and from work/metro all that much more, um, frigid. I bought a Starbucks drink, which helped, but nonetheless I was cold! I don’t know if I’ve said this before, my my office is right near the Tidal Basin (that big body of water by the Jefferson Memorial), so the wind and cold are pretty intense there!
The lowest they’ve been reporting in the news is 7 inches. But this is an outdoor table with a basket-weave type of table top, so the first bits of snow likely fell through.
And how is he not COLD lying down in the snow like that?? Crazy animal…
