Snow Day

February 13th, 2014 - 6:19 am

Well, everything in Knoxville seems to be closed and we have several inches or more of snow. It’s pretty but inconvenient, to say the least. I have resigned myself to cleaning the attic for exercise. If snowed in, how are you spending the day? Do you have any creative solutions, other than the obvious, for adults?

Treat a snow day as an extra Saturday. Without any shopping trips.

Fortunately this storm missed us in the upper midWest, but we've had 3 days off from work already (and the kids got an extra day off last month due to extreme cold. Pfff. I've stood outside waiting for the bus when it was 14 below.

What I did was spend the morning on lying on the couch, with little Susie (golden long hair Chihuahua, very sweet dog pound rescue) resting her head on my shoulder. Great snowed in therapy. Afternoons spend shoveling pathways for the hounds.

By 'obvious', of course you mean surfing the blogs and leaving snarky comments.
Then we go out and negotiate with the neighbors to borrow a snow shovel.

When it happens, I'm able to work remotely. So, I'll make breakfast for the kids, make hot chocolate in the cappuccino machine, throw a roast or korean barbecue in the crock pot.

Around 10 am, realize that the thermostat is set for a work day, and wait for the house to warm up again.
