SNOMG 2010

It was one heck of a weekend, which all began innocently.

You see...I doubted the TV morons/weather forecasters 
when they enthusiastically and giddily said 24 inches.
After all, it's the only job that you can be wrong 90% of the time 
and still remain employed.  Bunch of yahoos.

As the hours went by, 
it became clear that those morons might be right.  
So I went to Target like the rest of the population 
of the metro Twin Cities area, 
because I needed nothing.
I left $70 later.  Mostly spent on chocolate.  

Then I went to bed and woke up the next day to lots of snow, 
which heavily continued to fall for hours.
And hours.
And hours.
I shoveled.
And shoveled.

Then gave up and went to bed.
Woke up the next day to find I was the 
last survivor of SNOMG (Snow My God) 2010.
And that is when the fun started.
I started shoveling again.
Don't be jealous.

I finally got halfway down my sidewalk and that was it.
  All my energy was zapped, so I walked 
through 3' drifts to get to my garage 
to sit and ponder my existence.

And from inside this is what I saw.
My driveway is about 30 feet long and a double wide.
I realized my current (and future) existence was crappy
and full of snow.
I decided that perhaps becoming homebound until May
wasn't such a bad thing. all seriousness it was a calm and peaceful weekend.
All my plans were canceled over the weekend due to the storm. 
No Holidazzle Parade.  No Cookie Bake-A-Thon.
No seeing my Godson's band at the Fine Line. 
But there was time to watch TV and scrap.  Here are the results:

December Daily Day 7.  
The day I was planning the cookies
for the Bake-A-Thon that never transpired.  

December Daily Page 8.  
A layout on what holiday themed books I am reading. 
I lead such an exciting life.  

 Basically, I could have summarized this whole blog
entry into a few words.
SNOMG...the weather forecasters
were right for once and I scrapped.
But what fun would that be?  ;o)

I too scrapped (but for an album for a return client, not nearly as fun as scrappin for myself) my way through the storm!
Love seeing your Dec daily!!
