I went to bed last night thinking that today was going to be a horribly busy day.
I had to do things like...
three loads of laundry...
clean the house...
and just generally get ready for about 15 people to descend on my house on Christmas Day for the traditional Christmas fried turkey, ham, stuffing, and all the other fixin's.
The Powers That Be, however, had other ideas.
I woke up to this:
A BLIZZARD WARNING IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6:00AM CST FRIDAY, DECEMBER 25
Issued: Thursday, December 24, 2009 2:21 PM CST
Expires: Thursday, December 24, 2009 10:30 PM CST
That's not a word we use around here, ya know.
I had to check again. I still didn't believe it, so I did the laundry and made the cake and even conned Oz into helping me clean the entire house, just in case the Powers That Be were wrong.
By the time I got most of the house cleaned, though, this was happening to my front yard...
