Snow = Cleveland

This morning I woke up and got ready for church, as usual. I saw that it was snowing outside the window, but I didn't think anything of it until I got out there --we got pounded overnight. No cleaning crews were out yet, so the sidewalks, parking lot, and street were completely covered. I felt like I was in boot camp, when they make you run through a bunch of car tires, and you have to step quickly in and out of each one... By the time I made it to the church the bottoms of my jeans were soaked, and I tracked a bucket full of snow into the narthex. Pastor Valerie commended us, the "hearty" ones, for making it out there this Sunday. After trecking back to my dorm I hopped in my car to go get some Superbowl munchies at Giant Eagle. I made the mistake of turning onto the freeway which was moving at about 30 miles per hour with an accident at every other mile marker. When I got to the exit my car slid around a bit, but no cars were around, so I didn't hit anybody. But I got back here without incident.

When I got back in my room I turned up the heater and put on my fuzzy blue slippers. I think it's hot cocoa time, too. But at 3:00 I have to go to the learning lab to do a health check for our rats. Those little guys need to be weighed and fed, and I doubt they care that there's a million feet of snow outside. As soon as I get back here, though, I'm hopping into comfy pj's, wrapping myself in a blanket, and parking my rear on a sofa in the lobby to watch some football. And eat munchies. GO BUCS!
