A couple weekends ago, right before my last final, Ryan & I went to Branson with my Mom, her BF, and my Bro. My Mom and her BF have season passes to Silver Dollar City, and they got two free tickets for guests. They rented a condo right by the park, where we stayed two nights.
The bad news: The “historic storm” didn’t deliver as I had hoped. We were right on the line, as usual, from snow to sleet …so we mostly got freezing ice pellets that look like snow. Maybe a total of 3-4 inches of ice/snow. (I didn’t step a foot outside today so I’m not sure.) Boo! I want the 24 inches that they got in Joplin, MO (according to pictures I saw on Facebook.)
The good news: Regardless of what actually happened, I GOT MY FIRST EVER COLLEGE SNOW DAY!!!! Not only that, but I GET ANOTHER SNOW DAY TOMORROW!!!! You can’t tell I’m excited, can you? Sorry tests, papers, and presentations.. but you’ll have to be put on hold for now.
I’m going to be sooo spoiled by these snow days! Our university NEVER ever shuts down campus for snow. It’s more like a historic snow day, instead of a historic storm! Maybe the threat of the “blizzard” was enough to call it off. (What the heck is a definition of a blizzard anyway because I don’t think we had one?) Honestly, who cares… I’m just glad I got to experience an official snow day before I graduate!
My cousin Darah and her BF, Micah, did go outside for a quick minute today with their dog and so I sent her out with my camera.
Then I took a picture from inside. Heh. :) I am thankful for a warm house!!!!
Since we were snowed in, Darah and I made a Valentine craft today…
Come back tomorrow to find out what it was!
In the meantime…
Tell me what you do when you’re snowed in.
Two Saturdays ago, you wouldn’t have found me talking on the phone just shy of 4 hours, with the conversation ending at 3 AM. Nope, and I didn’t miss church the next morning!! And Ryan certainly wasn’t right in his prediction when he said, “You’ll be on the phone for 4 hours!” Ryan is never right. ;)
