Okay, I get it. There's a lot of snow outside. I don't need anyone to tell that. Seriously, I haven't been outside my house in almost a week. But, do you want to know what really grinds my gears? Weather people. It's like they wait for times like this to happen, so they can instill fear in everybody. After getting overshadowed by late breaking stories and sports, they finally get their time to shine and can't get enough of the snow. I finally get some time to relax and watch television and what do I see? 24 hour weather people risking their lives in the snow to tell me how cold it is. "Sandra, it's really cold out here. People are not leaving their homes. I see about 3 feet of snow and no cars on the road." Really, you think? Tell me something I don't know. You don't need to show me I can look out my window and see that I have more than 2 feet of snow there. So, here I am trying to watch my favorite television doctor, Dr. Oz and instead I see Mr. Joe Cool outside telling me information that I already know. I get it. It's your job, but how about you take a break so I can hear about something other than "Snowpocalypse 2010" (There name, not mine). I think they love to over dramatize things and instilling fear in people. It's okay if you talk about it during the morning news and evening news, but let me have my days with Dr. Oz and Oprah free without interruptions. Dude below is crazy!
I am anxiously awaiting the expected 2-4 feet snowfall that is about to hit the mid-atlantic in the next couple of hours. I remember being so excited for snow to fall when I was younger. The constant checking of the news and crossing my fingers and toes that school would be closed. Of course every other county would close school except for mine where they always called for a two-hour delay. Sometimes, on days of especially heavy snowfall I would get a day off from school and go sledding with my friends all day. Luckily for me, my front yard had a steep slope that all the neighborhood kids could use for sledding and snowboarding. Sometimes it got annoying to see random people on my yard, but most times I didn't mind it (as long as I could borrow a snowboard). Now, when it snows I don't get as excited as I used to be. One, snow means I can't go to work and no work means no money. You see the problem here right? I decided to take a new approach to snow days. Maybe I will dig out my old sled and take it for a spin. Maybe. Or, maybe I'll busy myself indoors with activities. Yes. That might be the ticket. I'm feeling extra crafty today. There are so many things to do indoors when it snows. It'll be a good time to get my creative juices flowing.
Just a quick shout out to Chanel who is currently in Costa Rica!
I'm just insulted (ahem... jealous) that she left all of this.
