I had intended to write a post today about our lovely weather. The fact that it ties in with Weekly Geeks is just lagniappe! Now, to those midwesterners or Yankees that are used to this, feel free to point and laugh, but understand that this is the most snow Nashville has gotten in exactly 7 years. Jan 16, 2003 we got snow like this (i only know the date because the following day is D's birthday) but not more than an inch or two at a time since then.
so, we were supposed to get ice yesterday morning, then switching to 3-6 inches of snow. when i woke up at about 7:30 nothing had started and i figured the snow was a bust again. then, lying on my couch watching Sportscenter, i noticed it had started snowing. by about 1 pm things looked like this
Then at about 5 we'd gotten hereIt just kept going and going, then around 1 i heard a weird noise. it was a plow! I've never seen one in action.
At about that time the weather switched over to the ice we were supposed to be getting first. Here's how much of that we ended up with, on top of the snow.
my poor car, very aerodynamic, but lower visibility now!
snow is lovely thoughmy birdfeeder has been quite popular this morning as well, some visitors have been queuing up on the porch.
the other bit we were to talk about was books we like in the winter as well as show our reading area. Here's where i've been the last day and a half
i have liquids, blankie, tissues, variety of reading material and the computer is for music. When i take a break i've got the tv for sports/movies. I've watched The Dark Knight, Watchmen, Wolverine and am working on The Two Towers now. I've also managed to play some Wii Fit (thanks for letting me borrow it B) and took a nice walk.
as for reading particular things during winter, i think i've said before that i don't notice much change in my reading habits over the course of the year.
an aside, a piece that gives B more proof that soccer is better than football.
