Snow Day!

Yeah, I know. Katie isn't in school yet and I'm a stay-at-home mom, but it's still a snow day.

Roper is off in England. Katie and I can keep our own schedule.

The family room floor is ankle deep in toys and crumbs. I don't care, we're having fun.

We went out this morning for milk and bananas and such. I was amazed at how few of the major roads have been plowed. Rand Rd and Northwest Hwy were clean, but they are US rts. Dempster and Mt. Prospect Rd were a total mess. The little industrial park that is the shortcut to Randhurst was in beautiful shape. They must have a private service do theirs.
The advantage of being on a 1 block long cul-de-sac is that we get plowed early and often. A big plow wouldn't fit on our street. They do it in a pick-up with a plow blade.

Well, I hear that Katie has finally settled down to her nap so I am off to blow the driveway. Yum, what fun!

I used to travel the bike path through that industrial park, 10 or 12 years ago. At that time, their plow service was the same one that Randhurst had, which went by the name of Snow Command, and had huge white plow blades they'd park in customers lots as advertising (and to stage the gear ahead of the storms.)

By way of contrast, down here, I noticed the pool pump making another new funny noise today, and pulled the filter bags out for cleaning. The pool has not been swimmable since early November, when I dove in to install a patch on the side, and wished I hadn't, so this meant today I was working with my arms up to my elbows in very cold, very green, water.

Gretchen, PLEASE don't lob easy ones like that across the plate. It generates bad images, and makes me spew diet coke onto the dog.

What was the dog doing between you and the keyboard? (I, luckily, wasn't drinking.)
