Snow Day!!

So, St. Louis has been experiencing the coldest weather we've had in a decade (as is much of the rest of the country). Add strong winds and sticky snow and you've got a bonus snow day from heaven. I love working in education! Anyways, I was happily baking some homemade blueberry muffins and Caroline was reading on the couch when we received a phone call from our land lord letting us know that a major water main had burst up our street and that we should move our cars.
We scrambled about, putting on our winter gear over our pajammas. Hey - you'd still be in your pjs if you got a bonus day off work too! Thankfully my car was already parked on the other side of the street. Caroline was not so lucky and had to drive it out of the mini-river we had going and through the wet, slick snow. It actually took her a while to get out!

Here's Caroline fording the water. It was actually quite deep! Well, now that that little kerfuffle is over, we'll just get back to our lazy day routine...

Holy Smokes! I'm glad her car didn't get washed away or frozen to the road!

Oh, how awful about the burst water main... but how lovely to get an extra day home. I am sitting here in the study looking out at the snow and thinking, "Oh it's so pretty! Let it snow!" Then I remember I have to drive out in it tomorrow. Uh, Houstonian + Snow = Fail.
