Evidently Steven and I picked the right week-end to go to Vermont. Out of the storm, we only got 6". We didn't even have to shovel too much, because Dawn and Mike's place plowed everything, as long as we moved our cars.
We spent an extra night because my mother said that the snow was insane. We went to the mall, I bought an insane amount of clothing for amazing prices (I <3 Diamond Run Mall's JC Penney's), and Steven got an amazing fleece penguin hat for $10. When Mark & Shelby
post their pictures from when we visited yesterday, I'll yoink them and put them up here. Or you can visit their blog and check them out. Either way, I just realised that the sweater I'm wearing tend to make me look huge because it just hangs down over my boobs. Sigh.
Anyhow, we really didn't do much on our extra day. Dawn worked on some of her portraits upstairs on her computer. I eventually had to give up and head back downstairs because my knee started killing me. We watched the Pats game and plotted the demise of Dawn's pesty, pesty kitten.
As stated above, we dropped in on the Sohmers after finding out that there was no school today, either. We finally arrived around 10:30.
Holy jesus, is there a lot of snow! I guess we're getting more on Wednesday... another 6" or so. We have about a foot on our porch, alone, that need to be cleared. There's about 30" on the ground outside. I guess it took Sue, the vice principal of Steven's school, 5 hours
to get from the North End to Rockland. For those who don't live around here, that's normally a 40 minute or less trip. I'll put up with Vermont's assbiting cold, thanks.
We have no photos from Vermont because the damned batteries kept dying. I think we literally got one of my nephew, who is HUGE. He and Elliott are the same size now, except Elliott is a year older. You'd never know it though.
I actually need to shower, but I have no ambition. Steven's napping because he was on the phone until 2:30 last night with an old friend he thought might have died in 9/11. She, obviously, is still quite living. It's cool, though, because we had planned on just bumming around today. I think all we're really intending on doing is getting my crutch gel pads (I have horrible bruises and hot spots from the pressure against my bra underwires) and possibly return my Christmas present from Steven that doesn't fit.
OOH! They have the little snowcat out removing snow from our parking lot. Yay!
All right, off to shower now.
