it snowed!!!!

nah. that's not our house. nor is that our snow. and really? what we got? it isn't snow. it's ice. slushy, mushy ice. but it looks like snow. and that's what's important. it looks like snow and it feels like snow, and everything is covered in it. which is good, because everything is shut down. so, i'm glad there is a reason.

we got a call at about 7 last night, saying that the base was closing down. the schools had all already been shut down. i was kind of shocked. because at 7 last night? there was no snow. not one single flurry. or even ice. just a forecast. a prediction.

am i complaining? NO WAY!!! i love snow! i love being shut in and closed down! i LOVE when things slow down and people spend time with their families. and that is what we did today.

see? ice. 

currently, charlotte (our hometown) has about 6 inches and it's still falling. i'm jealous. we might have gotten an inch. most of our grass isn't even covered. but it was still fun to make believe. we sare going home on wednesday for a couple of days and i am PRAYING that there is still a significant amount there.

I'm guessing that I'm a little north of you. We got about 7 or 8 inches here, but there's a nice layer of ice on top of the snow. Which means things will likely be shut down around here tomorrow, too. Not that I'm complaining about another day in yoga pants...
