digging out of the snow.

December 23rd, 2006 at 10:30 pm

We dug out from our 2-day blizzard yesterday. My back-yard had 7 foot drifts. The patio door was covered with snow. It's really not that big of a deal. The electricity rarely goes out for these blizzards and when it doesn it's usually only a few hours. I get a least 2 a year of the big ones where the drifts cover the patio doors. As long as I don't have to go anywhere I'm content.

There are huge piles of snow along all the roads and in the parking lots.

I had a vacation day on Friday. Yesterday morning after they plowed one-lane on our road, my parents came by in their big 4-wheel drive and dad drove us to Wal-Mart where mom and I walked thru the store for some exercize. We did do a little shopping too, but mostly walked. Walked for 45 min. Got the last of my xmas gifts.

We went to Chili's for lunch. I spent $8

My friend came over today. We were going to have lunch and watch the Pink Panther with Steve Martin that I got from the library, but after lunch and talking for about an hour she went home because she couldn't shake her headache. We exchange gifts and I bought her 4 books, since she borrows all mine and I know what she likes and she got me a $20 gift card to Borders so I can buy more books to loan her Smile works out well for both of us. I also gave her the gift I got for her daughter to take home. She's 5 and it's always fun to buy for that age.

After she left I went to my parents and played cards with them and my Grandma who's staying with them for xmas.

I finished reading the library book Dzur by Steven Brust. Sci/Fi good

I finished reading the library book Treasures of Kahn by Clive Cussler. Adventure. Very good.

    It's funny...here in NJ, they talk about the snowstorms in Denver as if they're crippling, probably because here, everything would shut down. But you all must be so used to it that's it not such a big deal, because you sound like you're taking it in stride. Have a great holiday and a happy, healthy 2007!
