OMG - they weren't kidding
I had every intention of making it into work today, but "me vs the snow drifts" meant only one thing - the snow drift WON.
My husband was up with me at 1:00 am to try and shovel me out of our alley. After an hour of shoveling the same drift over and over, he said it perfectly "we can't shovel our entire way to Hales Corners from Bay View."
True. So after a few phone calls with Kidd O'Shea (who's stranded at a hotel in New Berlin) and talks with the boss it was decided to stay home.
In theory a snow day would sound awesome, except it's 3:47 am and I can't go back to sleep (this is my usual awake time).
So it's time to put some coffee on, cuddle up with my dog (who's refusing to go outside and pee) and watch my TV friends report the news and weather.
BTW, this photo is outside our front door, yes you can only see parts of the hand rail down the steps due to the HUGE drift in front of me.
