I decided to do a little retail therapy at the mall on Sunday to squeeze some enjoyment into my one day off as most of the rest of the day was taken up with chores and errands. As I was browsing through the magazines at Barnes & Noble I heard this married couple chatting. Him: "They said on the news that we're going to get 7 - 10 inches of snow tonight". I thought to myself 'we got an inch of snow last night, it's already melted, we haven't gotten 7 inches of snow all YEAR - this guy is an idiot'. About that same time the guy's wife says to him: "You're an idiot". Ha! Him: Sigh "I'm just telling you what they said on the news". (I got the impression that they have this type of conversation a lot.) But sure enough as I went into other stores in the mall the salespeople were making plans to close early because of "the storm". At Trader Joe's it was packed with shoppers and the guy at the checkout said it was because of "the storm". And the news report said we would get 7 to 10 inches of snow. At this point though, the sun was still out and it was hard to believe we were going to get any snow. But Monday morning:
So - it turns out the guy at the mall knew what he was talking about. We got 6 inches overnight and it kept snowing through about noon. It stuck around a few days as it was pretty cold Tuesday and Wednesday - but its mostly gone now and it's scheduled to warm up to 60 tomorrow so I think it will all melt by Saturday. A nice little winter blast there but I figure that's got to be our last winter blast this season. Right? Maybe I should go skulk at the mall and see if I can get anymore good weather tips!
I know I've said this before - but my current project is wrapping up and I think I will have time for crafting and maybe some blogging over the next few weeks! This time I mean it! Stay tuned!
