But inside it is delightful. Yeah, it's once again snowing here in the middle of Northern Indiana. We had a big snow a couple weeks ago, (by big I mean about 6-8 inches) and it was all melted off and the temps went up. We had mud! Then the temps crashed down again, freezing the mud, and bringing on more snow. It began snowing last night about 8:30 PM and hasn't stopped yet and it is now 10:30 AM. I would guess that we have about 6 inches on the ground right now and more expected. Tomorrow it is supposed to be sunny with a high temp of 19F. Then, the temps are going up and we can expect another bout of snow with accumulations of another 8-10 inches by Monday morning then temps dipping to a high of -4F and -3F on Monday and Tuesday. Why am I telling you all of this. Well, I know that readers like Terry and John are laughing! They both live in regions of North America where they get snow by the foot, not by the inch. I know that my "sister-of-the-spirit" Mellodee in Austin is probably doing a "happy dance" that she no longer lives in the Chicago area where they are getting even more snow than I am!
Maggie, (my daughter has decided that Prof is not an appropriate name for her on here since she has given up teaching college) had a job interview in Ohio this afternoon. She was all ready, with all the stuff she needed for the interview. She is ticked, to say the least, that this snow has caused her to miss the interview, though the interviewing people were very understanding when they talked a bit ago. The place where she was to go is now having freezing rain and it is expected to change to snow later as the temps drop. She had a 4 hour drive and in checking with INDOT and OHDOT, I don't think she would have even gotten two hours away from home before she would have had to turn back. So, the interview is being rescheduled for either tomorrow or sometime next week.
I had an appointment at the lab for my semiannual bloodwork this morning. I took one look outside, noticed that a snow plow has not been down our street yet, and called and rescheduled for tomorrow. The appointment scheduler sorta laughed at me, but hey, she's about 5 years old (read here..much younger than me) and probably has a 4 wheel drive vehicle, and she said that it wasn't too bad out there. Yeah, right. I told her that someone my age has no business out in this, and she did agree with me and apologized for being glib.
So all in all, we're staying in today and hoping that tomorrow is at least clear enough for us to be out and about. So to all of you in the north, keep on laughing, in the south, do your happy dance, and I will grab the shovel later on and start digging my way out! Have a great day wherever you are!
