This is all the snow we got yesterday - can you believe it? That was it. A dusting. So much for the blizzard.
Thanks for everyone's birthday wishes on 'the facebook' yesterday! The worst thing about having the day after Christmas as your birthday is that everyone is too partied out to do anything - so I really appreciated everyone's comments. We sat around and watched a Lord of the Rings marathon. The fighting uruk-hai were my favorite part - and Kai's also.
Yesterday's Birthday Blizzard 2012 was just as big of a disappointment as that whole apocalypse. A big nothing for sure. We were right on the rain/snow line so we received sleet, freezing rain, and ice. Counties north of us really got a pounding tho, and this part of the state still has "Snow Emergency Levels" One and Two for many counties. This means the road conditions are bad and everyone should just stay home. If they ever reach a Level Three then you could be arrested for driving.
As for us we had a quiet holiday but it was not without action and adventure. On Friday the big tanker truck came to deliver our heating oil....and got stuck in our driveway. Like "holy moly how'd you do that" stuck. They had to call a huge wrecker to come in and pull the tanker truck out. It took almost 2 hours for the special wrecker to come in from the nearest metropolitan area!
While we were waiting for the wrecker I gave the tanker driver snacks and cookies - I felt terrible for him. But wow once the wrecker got here they got the tanker pulled out like it was nothing. It was the most amazing thing I've ever seen. Unfortunately they had to drag the tanker thru part of my potato garden. I'll get it fixed up. And nope we aren't going to try and get anything from the company. I needed to do some drainage work there anyway and they basically trenched it for me.
So all's well that ends well in the holiday season. I'm already getting seed catalogs and looking forward to doing gardening planning.
Happy Thursday everyone!
