Is it Spring yet?

So last week we got hit with a horrible ice storm and lots of power outages.  Then yesterday about 1pm it started snowing and it is now 10am and it hasn't stopped yet.  We have at least 8 inches--probably more.  And guess what?  Another storm is supposed to start dropping a foot of snow starting tomorrow morning.  Mother Nature is really putting a damper on my plans.  Two Fridays in a row London and I were planning on meeting up with friends that haven't met him yet and we had to cancel.  Today we were going to meet another friend who hasn't met him and I can't see that happening.  Also, I was going to finish Christmas shopping this morning and at 2:30 today I am redeeming a spa gift certificate.  I am REALLY hoping I can still make it to the spa.  I feel badly for the merchants having to deal with the two weekends before Christmas being affected by the weather.

On a more positive note, it is absolutely beautiful out there.  It is so nice to be snuggled up under a blanket in my warm and cozy house and look out at the snowy scenery.  I'm also almost done with gift wrapping---snowy days are good for gift wrapping.  

I hope you are safe and warm and snugly on this wintry day.

It is always a tough call on extreme weather - really warm weather at Christmas time or crazy snow. :) Glad you are enjoying the beauty though and here's hoping you made it the spa. :)

It is soooo nice to be cuddled up during that isn't it? I've been kind of hoping for a big snow this week so we can just cuddle in and not leave! So weird about your pregnancy and kiddo too!! Happy belated birthday! :)
