D is for DUMPED

D is for DUMPED. As in, "All this snow DUMPED on us in 20 minutes." Seriously, we woke up - No Snow. We got ready for school and work - No Snow. We looked out the window, "Hey, it's snowing!" And 20 minutes later - This:













We don't usually get snow, but when we do, I can count on the University closing and giving me a snow day. BUT, not today. They've decided to remain open. I tried to go in, but was sliding on the road. The last time I went to work in heavy snow it took me 4 hours to get back home when they finally decided to close down the University. So, I am home using my precious vacation time. Sigh. Wah.


Ok, I'm over it! And off to cut out some quilt pieces!


Be Blessed!

I would say it's beautiful but we've had snow for a long time so I'm kinda over it already. Enjoy your snow day.

Hi, Nice pics, I took loads when it snowed on us after Christmas in the woods near where we live. My D was Dictionaries

I'm with you. It's too dangerous to brave the elements somedays. Far better to stay in your warm cozy home and . . . pull out the quilt pieces. Hope you have a productive day!

Wow Amy!! I don't blame you for taking a vaca. day. This weather is really crazy all over the globe! When Vinny was in college they never shut down either. They didn't seem to care about students or staff risking life & limb to get there. Glad you're home safe & sound. xoxoxo

I am happy to live in the San Francisco area where snow days are not a necessity! I don't envy you! It's nice to see a first snow fall but having to shovel the stuff doesn't appeal to me.

We had about 8 inches of snow two days ago..Your photos show a winter wonderland though.

Beautiful photos1 This has been a crazy winter so far, hasn't it? We got over a foot of snow yesterday but Philly & DC really got slammed.

I think we all ready for Spring to arrive! :-)

I take it you are in the Dallas area? We are cold and rainy, but no snow. For which I am grateful, this Kat does NOT do snow lol. I shocked that the University didn't close - usually here if they breathe the word snow everything closes. Would it be UNT? Kathy
