For the past several days, forecasters have been predicting 4-6 inches of snow. They've changed their minds and said 1-2 inches. I heard the grocery stores were packed last night. Everyone stocking up on their bread and milk. Just the mention of snow, and people get these cravings for milk sandwiches. Is this a Southern thing? I don't get it. ;)

This morning: nothing. Despite this fact, every school in the area is closed. (I hear there was an incident a few years back involving a snow storm and kids stuck on buses for 8 hours because they couldn't get home.) It's warmer this morning (27 degrees) than it has been every other morning this week. Almost twice as warm. I didn't even have to scrape my windows this morning. Some people didn't even come to work, I guess in anticipation of a great disaster from the sky.

Around noon it started snowing a little.

Can we talk about the fact that it dumped 5 inches on Lawrence yesterday and that didn't stop 16,000 fans from making their way to Allen Fieldhouse for the KU  v. Cornell game? (Great game, by the way.) Cornell stayed ahead of No. 1-ranked Kansas Jayhawks the majority of the game.

Poor Tyrel took one to the face … from his own teammate.

Going after it.

KU pulled it out and won by 5.
Wish I could have gone to the game, but the nice thing about listening to
the audio is being able to get up and shower during halftime.

Roads are reportedly fine. Might get a little icy tomorrow, but I'm taking a 1/2 day (which means I work until 10:30 a.m.) because I can and because I need to do some major cleaning. Miles has sure messed the place up in the last week.


  1. woohoo! my photography made your blog! hahaha...

  2. 2" of snow and 27 degrees? I would love that! It hasn't been much above 25 degrees for the past month in NE Kansas. I'm looking forward to next weekend - it will be close to 40!

  3. Completely a southern thing! You saw that schools are canceled tomorrow too, right! Isn't that silly!?

  4. Thank goodness for neighbors who we don't even know who are willing to pull us through our 3-foot snow drifts at 6:30 in the morning! And then he says, "when you get home from work tonight, don't hesitate to call me." Thank goodness for Ford F-250s. Crazyness - we have more than enough snow in MO to share.
