We've been hearing about the "big snow storm" for several days now, and honestly, I've been looking forward to it. The first flakes started falling at noon and by 3pm the roads were slippery and visibility not very good. What was even better---after work I had nowhere to go but home-where vegetable soup was simmering in Crock Pot. It is tapering off now and teachers and students throughout the area are doing snow dances and wearing their pajamas inside out in hopes of a snow day tomorrow. Me--I am sitting in front of a roaring fire with a trusty Bassett Hound by my side.
