We had our first blizzard since 2007 today. Even though I had already taken the day off weeks ago, I had absolutely no plans of leaving the house, therefore it felt like a true snow day to me. The cold air was frigid and the winds were howling.
He ended up having to go in to work, so we both were up at 5:30 this morning. That was nice, as we were working off about four hours of sleep. The wind was blowing so hard, it somehow blew the piece of drywall that covers our attic access up and twisted in the air it hence falling onto his tool chest and bouncing onto my car. And that was all with the garage door shut.
The city, most of the state really, shut down. They were advising people to not drive if they didn’t have to and there were wrecks and slide offs left and right. As I was watching the news, they kept it on an INDOT camera of a regular truck trying to pull a big rig out of a ditch. He was just sliding left and right, but once a Hoosier Helper truck came along, the big rig was able to get out and onto wherever he was going.
As for my day, he ended up being sent home due to the weather around 8:30 a.m. and got back around 10:15 a.m. He shoveled the driveway and I did the dishes as our wonderful dishwasher decided to go kaput on us.
…then the most eventful part of the day happened. We sat on the couch. Honey Bunches of Oats with cinnamon for lunch, followed by watching a ridiculously long move on LMN about the green river killer, dozing off at the tail end. The cat decided to join me, she was either laying on me or next to me all day.
Pretty eventful, huh?
You know, I’ll be honest. Sitting on my butt all day didn’t make me feel that great. Literally, I felt blah all day. And the longer you sit, the less you want to get up and be productive. I had spurts throughout the day, but not really.
We finished our snow day out with some chili and garlic bread, followed by watching three episodes of Tosh.0.
Pretty good snow day.
