The weekend snow storm that I thought would never actually happenSunday, January 05, 2014
Today we had the over-hyped, overly-discussed-on-Facebook winter storm. It started snow/sleeting sometime around 4 a.m. this morning and didn't fully simmer down until just about an hour ago (it's almost 9 p.m.). Now that the snowfall is diminishing, the gusty winds are creeping in and several neighborhoods in the state are reporting power outages. Temperatures are supposed to dip into the teens by midnight and then drop into negative digits by late Monday morning.
For those of you who are not familiar with Midwest winter weather, this essentially means that everything that fell from the sky today is going to completely freeze later tonight.
So I spent the whole day in full hibernation mode and my husband didn't make an appearance until after 1 o'clock this afternoon. Unable to sleep, I got up around 10 and planted myself firmly on the couch to watch TV and didn't move for about 5 hours.
The most productive thing I did today was create a gif of the snow:
A day well spent, eh? I feel like an internet wizard now.
