Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it SNOW

We ACTUALLY got a snow day today! (Well, we were allowed to leave at 2:00). I couldn't believe it.

We NEVER have snow days in New England. But apparently last year, there was a snow storm so bad that people were stranded on the roads for hours at a time. Children were stuck in school buses for over 8 hours without being able to use the restroom or without food, people were running out of gas on the highway, and cars were being abandoned because no one could move. The reason for the chaos was caused by an oopsie from the RI government and late dismissal of the snow plows AND the fact that everyone left work/school/wherever at the exact same time. So many cars were on the road, that it took a few hours to go a few miles.

Now, everyone is overly cautious...thus everything shuts down when we hear it's going to snow. So my boss let us leave early today. I came home, watched a couple episodes of the Hills and took a 2 hour nap. It was so wonderful.

We're expecting to have around 9-12 inches. How in the world are Samson and Sienna going to go to the bathroom? They'll be buried! Pictures soon to be posted...

I live in MI so we got the storm right before you would have! We got 8 inches out of it on top of the 4 inches we got the other day!
