A four letter word that begins with S

hehe and ends in NOW! Woot! I got my wish, snow for at least 1 day in NC. The only bad part is...sniff...I must go to work! Not sure if patients will show up, but one must be there just in case ;) Now, my normal 25 minute commute, might be longer, but I have stocked up on the essentials. Food and knitting, you know just in case I can't leave tonite ;)


From the porch
Scene from the front porch about 6 am! Just found out school is cancelled. I have one happy girl here. Guess no finals for her today! She's off to the grandparents and I told her to pack clothes for a day or so..in case it gets worse and we can't get her. You know..no snowplows, not much salt or sand here...so one must be prepared.

the cars
see, you can see it won't stick to the concrete...yet...

Heh, what do they know!
tv station just said 1/2"...um..er..I beg to differ

Ready to go!
As for me, I got my beaner stormchasers, wool socks, and handknits, and will begin the trek to work momentarily...let's hope I'm not stuck there all day and night!

Sigh..why couldn't this have happened this weekend...I had 4 days off :(

ETA: At work and it's coming down worse..eek, hope I don't have to sleep here LOL. Good thing for tempurpedic mattresses. Now I'm no stranger to snow, but here, you know...it's close down, if I was home in Maine...it would be another day! Poor hubby, he's stuck home with daughter ;)

ETA 2: 11 am
As of 11 am
me thinks this is more than 1"
as of 11 am
Home now and hanging out!

That's what I wear everyday this time of year! We call it the New England uniform.

Hopefully it didn't cause too much hardship.

I have about the same where I am. It's exciting isn't it? Sorry you have to work. I have to drive in and retrieve my laptop, but I get to come home!

I saw the NC weather warning on weather.com and thought of you guys. Isn't it great? We finally got some decent snow ourselves!

Disco said...

Totally jealous.

I'll bet people are *freaking out*. Right? How fun.

Jo said...

How can NC have more snow than DE?!?!

It was so cold here this morning that my car doors were frozen shut.

Karen said...

Glad someone is happy about snow. I sure am not!!! Hope you make it home tonight!

Walden said...

I agree with Karen . . . you can come steal any of the New York snow any time you want!

Danielle said...

Lovely pictures! It sounds like your situation is similar to what happens in my area of the country (Seattle) when it snows! Enjoy it. :)

Fun fun! I love the snow!

Lynn said...

This is my kind of snow!!! Enough to blanket everything, but not so much that you can't walk or drive. BEAUTIFUL!!!!

MsKnottyKnits said...

Yay!! I'm so glad you didn't make the drive into work. I went down to pick up my daughter around 1130 and the roads were not fun!

KnitPastis said...

Pretty isn't it! Guess I appreciate it now that I live in NC. A place that rarely sees snow.

kemtee said...

Oh, maaaaan! You and Cristi got all the snow and you didn't leave me nothin'!

Rats.

Jennifer said...

Looks like the perfect weather to stay in and knit!
