Well we dug out of the snowstorm, and now the kid are enjoying a couple of days off of school. Actually I did no digging - I would prefer to hibernate for the entire winter, but the Enginerd and the kids work all day on our driveway. I thought I would share some pictures.
This is the view from our back door onto our deck. I know we are supposed to have the awning taken down for the winter, but we never have. It was here when we bought this house, and we never knew who to call. We are now waiting for it to cave in from the weight of the snow. The Enginerd put some supports under it to try to keep it from ripping off of the house
I finally ventured out of the house for the first time this morning. Our municipality, Murrysville, PA did a fabulous job of cleaning off the roads. But I must say that people just need to SLOW down! The roads are pretty clear, but every now and then, 2 lanes narrows down to about 1 1/2 lanes. There really is no need to fly like a bat out of hell and put everyone on the roads at risk for an accident! Fortunately I don't have any reason to go into Pittsburgh because everyone and their brother was bitching about the road conditions in the city.
As there is another snow storm headed this way, we went to the Big Bird (our local grocery store which is really called Giant Eagle) tonight for bread and milk. I don't know what it is like in other parts of the country, but in the Burgh, when there is snow coming, you go get your bread, milk, and toilet paper whether you need it or not!
Tomorrow will be a super fun day because I will be attending our 2010 company kick-off. Oh they are pulling out all the stops on this one - the Asylum is having an all out affair at the Doubletree hotel to celebrate 2010. They were so sure we would all flock to this meeting that it is mandatory. I am sure I will have lots of fun things to vent about tomorrow.
