The Ice Storm Cometh

The Weather Channel called it a Winter Blitz. The local paper called it a Winter Blast. I call it a huge pain in the ass for making me so worried about the roads that I left the roaring fire, the bubbling pot of soup, the hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps, sweet Lucy dog, and her even sweeter owner D. to come home and sit around waiting for the temperature to drop. Even more fun than waiting for paint to dry or water to boil.

And I don't want to hear the phrase "freezing drizzle" ever again.

The snow we were supposed to get all last night finally started dropping this morning, and it is glorious. Since this is the first and likely only snow we'll get in 2007 I'm remaining happy about it.
