Well, whadaya know?

So, I should make grand sweeping statements on the internet more often. Specifically, about not shutting down the center.

We’re off today! Yesterday, Monday, we closed at noon because there was already a BUNCH of snow and more was coming. It was good that we did, because – no lie – it is so much snow. Lloyd shoveled our driveway, sidewalk and the neighbors’ before he walked to meet me at school (I walked so my car wouldn’t get plowed in), and during the afternoon, we shoveled four more times. It’s about 9:00 here and it all needs to be shoveled again. We are not going to be open tomorrow because the in-town streets may not be plowed and the country roads are certainly not going to be plowed.

Here’s a view of my shed at 6:00 a.m., before I left for work. That snow is left over from Saturday.

Here’s the same view at 8:00 p.m.

It’s the view of the sidewalk that is striking. Remember, it’s Nebraska and it’s all blown about in drifts.

Aside from all the shoveling, there were some bright spots in the afternoon. On our walk home, Lloyd took lots of video for his video editing class. (Remember they are having a teach-from-home day on Tuesday.) I even got to be in some footage. If you live in Seward, you are familiar with the giant pyramid time capsule. It looks a bit different today. See the angel?

I may have had something to do with that……

    Congratulations! I’m so happy that you get to stay home today!
    I love the snow angel. What a great idea.
    We shoveled 4 times yesterday and have a good amount to do this morning. Fortunately, the snow plow did not leave too much at the end of our driveway.

Snow? No snow?

(Sunday afternoon) As I write this, it is 2:19 p.m. and I am in the Mac Lab at Lloyd’s school. He is across the hall getting ‘to go’ bags ready for teachers. A big snow is scheduled to start tomorrow, anywhere from 3 a.m. to 6 a.m., and it’s supposed to go on all day. […]

It’s Madam Secretary’s fault.

I’ve been binging Madam Secretary for a few weeks. I watch it while I eat and right on through the night, often falling asleep on the sofa while it plays. That’s one reason I’m not making posts, but the other is that there just doesn’t seem to be much to talk about. Work is work. […]

I begin my morning with a hot shower and a large mug of strong coffee. Lately, I’ve been rather proud of myself that that is usually the only caffeine I have for the day. I have even begun my morning at school with a glass of ice water. Now, I don’t finish it before the […]

Not a seamstress

My regular coat has a rip. As you know, it is tough for me to get rid of coats, and I wanted to fix it. I love watching those videos where someone repairs a hole by turning it into a flower or a leaf or whatever, or doing sashiko, a Japanese technique that is pretty […]
