End of Work

I've been counting down my remaining days of work since New Year's, so yesterday it was a fantastic surprise to hear yesterday afternoon at 3:45 that the President and Dean had made the call to close the school the next day due to the impending storm. Which, of course, was so fantastic because today was supposed to be my last day of work - so all of a sudden, my countdown was shortened by a day! It's a little surreal that I'm finished work for a year.

This morning when I looked out the window, I wasn't too sure that we had actually had a snowstorm - it didn't even look like we had any snow in our driveway! However, by the time I got all bundled up (so grateful that Brian's old snowpants can fit over my belly - love that the baggy look is all the rage for snowboarders!) and stepped out the door to take Izzy for a walk, I realized that there was quite a bit of dense snow out there. We had to take our walk on the street in the tracks of the few cars that have made their way down our street, because the snow was past Izzy's stomach on the sidewalks. In our driveway, we have drifts past my waist, and even bigger ones in the back yard. Love it!
