I must say I'm so excited for this! 5:04 AM brought me a very nice phone call "School Closed due to snow." Got so excited to stay home, watch Christmas movies, and spend time with Ryan until I noticed that the power was out! Poo! But about an hour later it came back on.

Just so you know what I'm dealing with today, here's the forecast:

morning will give way to snow showers this afternoon. Morning high of 32F with temps falling to near 20F. Winds WNW at 25 to 35 mph. Snow accumulating 1 to 3 inches. Winds could occasionally gust over 50 mph.

Oh...and here's tomorrow's forecast:

Windy. Mostly cloudy skies will become partly cloudy in the afternoon. Very cold. Wind chills approaching -20F. High around 10F. Winds WSW at 20 to 30 mph.

Wind chill of -20F!!!! I am not ready for it to be this cold so soon! But I guess that's what you get when you live in Northern Illinois. I'll post pictures of the almost 12 inches of snow covering my world right now when I can drag myself out of bed and out into the snow to take them.

If they ever plow my neighborhood, I'll get in workout 5.2 of the running program. But I can hardly walk Bentley in my boots, so there's no way I'm going to run in them :)

Here are those pictures:
It's 12:11 PM and they still haven't plowed the neighborhood. :)


  1. Yay for no school, boo for -20 wind chill. Have fun!

  2. So beautiful!! I am jealous of your snow day!
