What more could you ask for?

So, although this "snowstorm" is turning out to be pretty wimpy so far (we were projected 18-24" when I went to bed last night, and downgraded to 12-20" when I woke up today ), I decided to get out some movies, make cocoa, curl up with the cat, and at least pretend I was snowed in.

My luck...I turned on Turner Classic Movies, and found "Mourning Becomes Electra," followed by "Citizen Kane," followed by "Gaslight." I win! (the cat, oddly, was not fond of "Citizen Kane," but is curently enjoying "Gaslight" on my lap...she is a big Ingrid Bergman fan )

Now all we need is a couple more feet of snow and it'll have been a great day.

Sounds like a good time My aunt has tried to get me to watch both "Citizen Kane" and "Gaslight", along with a bunch of other "greatest movies of all time", but I just haven't gotten around to it yet

Luckily for me, the university-that-never-closes actually cancelled all classes today I guess they got more snow up there than we did down here. But, in true anal-retentive form, I've been cleaning and doing homework and generally being productive

That sounds great!

I spent this morning trapped inside my car because the doors had frozen shut on my way to work.

Well, it was only 25 minutes total time in my car.

Sounds great! Us on Long Island got nothing but rain and rawness... blah!

To me, the cold is pointless unless there is snow, and a lot of it! (until, of course, I have to drive it it...)

AFAIC, less than two feet of snow isn't even worth getting out of bed for. What a disappointment. It is, however, very wet and heavy snow, so I'm anticipating a lot of calls for lines down tonight

I am about movied out, though, and it's getting time to put the roast in the oven for dinner (roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, good for a snowy day). Now if I can just extract myself from underneath the cat, I'll start on dinner....

we need snow. we had like a foot of snow last month, but not there's none and they're thinking there's going to be a drought this summer if we don't get more snow soon.

Well, it looks like I'm offline for a while, as we finally lost power, and my ancient laptop battery has very limited life...so I'll take my leave, as there's a pudding I need to make that requires getting the oven cranked up to 450. Got the hand-crank radio going and a warm cat, though.

With any luck, I'll be back in a day or two.

You're fantastic! Enjoy the time off! Go read in the snow!
