Here in Connecticut we were predicted a blizzard. We were declared in a “state of emergency” and I worked from home. I was pretty much pumping myself up to watch the lat 5 episodes of Nashville that I had DVR”d and make some beaded necklaces (seriously, thats what I was going to do), but instead had a surprise visitor! My friend Petow, who also braved Irene with me a couple years ago, showed up with storm snacks. At that point, I knew my night was about to get a lot more interesting.
Before there was too much snow on the ground, and while it was still somewhat light we wanted to play outside for a while. So, we played KanJam! Normally a summer game, we discovered that it is actually an AMAZING game to play when it’s cold out. There’s enough moving going on that you stay pretty warm.
Later, after it got dark we decided we should go sledding. We just had one problem-we didn’t have a sled. So we decided we should MAKE a sled. We looked around my apartment to see what we could use, and then headed over to my storage unit to check out what goods we could come up with in there. We ended up using a tupperware top, a slab of wood, and a buttload of duck tape. And voila! We’re ready to go sledding.
Its about 9:30AM here now and it’s still snowing…in fact, my car is buried under s snow drift, but I have a feeling today will bring some excitement as well
