Hey everyone! Had a busy week or two and have another one ahead. I am getting ready to catch a plane to Utah to look at housing for us for the next 4 years.... Last weekend was amazing we had 12 inches of snow plus the artificial snow at the resort. it was fun fun fun... I took 2 days off work and we did not come back until Tuesday morning. Now the 12 hours drive home was not fun anyways I miss all of you and I will be back online by Tuesday or weds! Have a safe and great weekend..and my prayers and thoughts are with al my New England friends this weekend.. hope you all ride out the storm ok!!

Good Morning, Friends.


Well, it's here.
Once again, it's really here!

<< What, Crown? What?? >>

Why, Weekend Eve, of course.

<< Oh, right! >>

This is also here:
Days to the Season: 278
Days to Christmas Day: 320
Just barely over half a week left now until Milestone #2, the quarter mark to the Season.
Wowza! (Thanks, Snowflake.....and Carl.)

Cooler yesterday with evening/overnight rain.
(No snow, however. The northeast is getting all that!)
We are at 42 degrees here right now with the promise of a dry, sunny day.
Warmer, too!

Have a Fully Freakin' Fabulous Friday, Folks.
May the spirit of the Season be with you today and on through a Wonderous Weekend!

snow snow snow snow snow and we are getting more

everything is closing down, no school which makes the kids happy. The funny part is I looked at the weather report and it says to expect light snow today. hmmmm who wrote that?

Work however will be open, does not matter no one can get in to buy the subs, we will be open anyway! LOL Do not have to be in until 5pm so will see if it lets up by then.
