I had big plans today!  Okay, I had at least planned to leave my house.  But no, too much snow on the street, up the hill, all over town.  I adore snow.  I love to see it from the window and the deck and the porch.  Driving in it?  Trying to get back up the hill to home? Not so much.  And the worst part was that my parents lost power because of the weather.  They are old, they need heat.  The electric company had no idea how long this condition would last, but they ‘did have crews in the area.’  I was not comforted.  Yes, yes snow.  No, no don’t make it slide-like on my street.  No, no don’t freeze my family into little Grand Popsicles.
