the ice storm that wasn't
now i can appreciate the value of weather forecasters but...i think it's gone a tad too far. the shelves of the local grocery were empty of bread, batteries and milk and my town had nothing. really....maybe a few ice patches from where the rain frozen in potholes or the whatnot. now to prepare for that we had three days of horror weather forecasting and schools were shut down on s.a.t.u.r.d.a.y. yes...saturday. now i understand the liability and legalese of the matter but the city went insane and the state shut down.
krazee - really (ugh, why did i type that like a 12-year-old?)
so....*shakes it off* i was mostly a weekend shut in - except for a fun bout of mexican food and bowling with friends on saturday night. the new bowling alley here has these cool lanes with leather sofas and coffee tables - so.much.fun! i hung out and chatted instead of actually bowling. we laughed so much my jaws aches. then... raise your hand if when you drive by krispy kreme and the red "hot doughnuts now" light is on your car takes matters in your own hands until you're sitting in front of that sign digging through your purse for six bucks for those hot glazed? *raises hand* and you know the bad thing, as i sat at home having one...for the first time, it didn't really taste that good. hopefully the jeep will remember that the next time.
anyway, my poor little tulips have now seen their last day. i have to go out this afternoon and see what calls my name. wherever you are, i hope monday is good to you. i hope it caresses your cheek and loves you well.
