Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!
What a cold and snowy week we have been having here in Cleveland! As I am sitting here on our couch flipping back and forth between All My Children and HGTV, the snow continues to come down and is supposed to continue throughout the night. We have had a constant mix of Winter Storms and Lake Effect snow which has turned into one snowy week! All of the Cleveland area schools are off today for the second time this week. Even our local schools have off of school which doesn't happen very often since our city does have a pretty extensive snow removal program given that we live in what is considered to be the "Snow Belt" area of Cleveland. All I have to say is that I am highly enjoying the perks of maternity leave by not having to drive to work in this! My poor sister had a 2 1/2 hour commute Monday morning when the start of this snowy nightmare happened. That is one thing I can get used to being at home!!!
The snow all over the trees in our backyard is actually quite pretty!
