Snowpocalypse #2: The Recovery

Today was pretty much a rerun of yesterday: shoveling snow, napping, and making cards. The plows finally made it to our street, yay! The Great Dig continued with trying to rescue my car. With the help of Dad, my uncle and a very nice neighbor, my car can get out now. By the end of that activity, I felt like an archeologist. The next time Indiana Jones needs help in Egypt, sign me up. Snow's kinda like dirt, right?

The county schools decided to close tomorrow AND Tuesday. I think those school kids are running really low on snow days. I think it'll go from "Yay, no school!" to "No school, again?" pretty soon. As for me, the Feds are closed tomorrow which means no work for me. But being the good employee that I am, I need to take care of a conference call since it's not like my laptop or cell phone are buried in the snow.

I decided to make some smaller cards (4 inch square, not small enough to be considered "mini"). Sometimes you just don't have enough to say to take up a whole card and then you're left with some unused white space. What a waste, right? I also used some supplies that I haven't reached for in a while- alpha stickers and flower gems.

But at least you are being productive! And, the cars look great at that :)

Hope the snow starts to die down soon :)

Guess you got hit by the snow just as bad as we did. Definitely not looking forward to the next lot that's predicted . . . . we still can't get out to the main road as it is. Stay warm and safe.
