Snow…Ice…This Must Be Ohio

February 15, 2007 at 10:51 am 11 comments

Well, what a couple of crazy weather days around this joint.  The big storm that blew in yesterday has brought my neck of the woods to a screeching, sliding standstill.   I just can’t find any reason to complain, this IS Ohio and snow with ice IS what kind of weather you’re supposed to get in the winter.  Besides, with no school since Tuesday, I have several dozen cupcakes and half a birthday cake to eat.  Which could explain why I’m still awake at one in the morning. 

Two chapters away from finishing THE BOOK.  Then the real work begins.  With the doctor’s completely mad contacts, we might be very busy soon.  I might actually get to abandon the day job, dare I say it, EARLY.

    it is often said becareful what you wish for.
    Most of Australia has been praying for rain, for years, 4 days ago we go it. complete with flash flooding, A friend of mine has been struggling for years to keep his breeding stock alive by expensive hand feeding, In just one night completely wipped out. 300 of his prize stock drowned. Unfortunately this heavy rain also washed away precious top soil. so now we all have a beautiful crop of weeds,none of this rain fell in the catchment area, Send me some snow I will send you heaps and heaps of sun.

    Everything here has been shut down as well, but looks like it’s back to semi-normal today. We’re on a 2-hour delay, but it’s for the cold, not the snow and ice. I’ll be heading out to work in a few minutes.

    Kat, my daughter, Brooke, lives in Ohio now. She called me several times yesterday with updates on that nasty weather. Hope it warms up there for you soon. And great news about the book…you go, girl.

    Schools here are closed again today. We live NW of Baltimore. My husband works in Baltimore and said that the roads where we live are not that great, but the closer you get to the city the better they are. It was nice having Bob home yesterday. I had when I can’t get out, because I feel stir crazy. I am also afraid that I will fall on the ice with the baby or something just as bad. We have an abudance of bad for us food in the house right now and I just can’t seem to keep myself from eating it. We had a very mild winter until the beginning of February and I knew that had to change at some point. Like you said, it is winter!

    Catch – Not so bad if you can stay out of the wind, unfortunately, the wind is everywhere.

    Barb – Oh no, 300 hundred head of cattle? How in the world do you recover from that? I wish I could send you snow, I want some sun!

    Jackie – Thanks! So Brooke has joined us in the greatest state on earth! Depending on where she is in relation to me, we might have to all get together in the spring.

    Linda – The cities are always better financed and prepared for weather emergencies. Good thing, they sure get a lot more traffic than the outlying areas.

    Well, if one has to be snowbound, I would much prefer it be in the company of cupcakes! By the time it got to us, it was mostly ice – very dangerous roads. I have an angry seven year old who is disappointed that the only snow of the year is so frozen you can’t budge it – and I didn’t have any cupcakes!
    Hope the early finish to the book brings you the chance to “escape” early!

    will you remember us when you’re busy getting famous?

  • 9. Mimi  |  February 16, 2007 at 8:49 am

    I always get stuck with tons of sweets in the house at the same time too. Or even worse, I have none at all!

    The weather has been crazy. This cold weather hurts, literally.

    Dr. Kate – I must admit all of this has been easier since the girls have snow to sled on and plenty of junk food!

    Janet – Only an idiot “forgets” the people who kept them motivated, encouraged, inspired, entertained and supported. I am, most definately, not an idiot. My friends like you, here in the blog neighborhood, are sometimes the only reason I keep writing.

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
