It is 2:00pm on Wednesday, and we are at 12 inches of snow and rising! There is a group on Facebook right now of about 284,000 people who are experiencing what they call "Snowpocalypse 2011"... an ice and snow storm of "epic proportions." It is certainly more snow than I have seen at one time, so I think maybe I deserve to get the marketed "I survived snowpocalypse" t-shirt. This snow and ice could be a bad thing, but we have thankfully retained power at I-house, and we girls (Pam, Kelsey, Hannah and I) are fortunately quite creative when we put our heads together. It started yesterday morning when we had ginger waffles, chocolate chip pancakes, and strawberry bread (all compliments of our dear moms!) for breakfast. Then we all ended up at I-house and we are still here! In the last 24 hours, we have...
- baked chocolava cookies - crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside... oh, so messy to make but so delicious to eat!
- eaten chocolava cookies - see previous comment
- watched three movies - what do you watch on snowy days? we watch light-hearted romantic comedies!
- watched guys clear the I-house parking lot - using a snowblower and a lawn mower with a plow, they cleared the lot, but now you can't even tell they were here. About as amusing as the movies, and they showed off a bit because they knew they had a good audience.
- listened to awesome music - Kelsey's CD pack is surprisingly full of music that Kevan would highly approve, so we have a great endless playlist.
- crocheted/knitted various things - Kelsey's working on a scarf, Hannah's working on something mysterious, and I'm working on tea cup cozies.
- drunk seven cups of tea - well, I have, anyway...
- made a midnight run to Subway/Walmart - well, Pam and Kelsey did anyway... When you crave a sandwhich, what else can you do... good thing that snow plow guy was there to dig them out of the parking lot!
- spent the night in big blankets on the couches - snug as bugs in rugs... and we woke up at 10:00am. And it was still snowing.
- made an amazing brunch - of scrambled eggs and pancakes made with French vanilla creamer instead of milk. Yes, they were incredible.
Later today we're gonna make snowmen and possibly snow cream! I'm so glad that, even though it may be the end of the world, buried in snow and ice, bereft of milk and bred, I have great friends to spend this snowpocalypse with.
