Mom Nature, You Can Stop Now

My five year old woke me up before eight in the morning to let me know there was "a LOT of snow on the ground."

Really? Huh.

Then I compared last night's snow picture to today's snow picture. Both are done from my front door.
See the perfectly visible bush? Now check this out:

Do you see the bush? Because I don't. And the damn thing comes up to my hip. (Have I mentioned I'm five foot nothing?) And it's still snowing!

The Weather Channel's little desktop toolbar is still telling me we're expecting as much as twenty-four inches of snow before it stops. Well, I hate to say it but I think we surpassed that mark around three a.m.

Snopocalypse indeed. I think I should be building a giant snowmobile and loading things onto it two by two.

I know what you mean, it's similar in my part of the world :)

And now I'm hearing it might snow again on Tuesday.

Apparently she didn't get my message. I'll have to express it overnight with that signature upon receipt request. It'll cost me extra, but it'll be worth it not to listen to my husband whimper again. :D
