Snow Day

Did I mention we live in paradise? These are a few shots out the back window this morning, off the back deck, and around the house. I guess if you're cleaning the cars off (thanks Jerry!) the mini-snowstorm takes on a different meaning. For me, it was glorious.
In total, we received about five inches, although the snow is still flurrying in our neck of the woods. They say that the Adirondacks may be getting more snow throughout the morning, but not enough to be concerned about. Wheelerville School District had a two hour delay this morning, which is the first leg of Allison's morning trip. So, her ride to Johnstown, which was not closed or delayed at all, would have been two hours late. So, Jerry the Hero (did I say thanks Jerry?) cleaned off the cars and took her to school at 7:30. She gained an hour's sleep-in time, he gained another job. The weather people say this was totally an elevation storm, which meant if you were even three miles down the mountain, you may have just received rain. The southern towns by us received rain only, and then the catskills got as much as 18 inches of snow. Crazy. Daphne is the only one who got off easy today.
she just moved her fat little butt from the bottom of the bed to the bed in front of the pellet stove, because after all, it IS all about Daphne. This is why Jake breaks my heart. He just knows that this is his life, forever. . . you'll notice he's laying on the floor in the kitchen. If it wasn't for Daphne, he'd be living the life of Riley. He knows that. Poor guy. It's gonna be a long day.
