Dad arrived on Wednesday night and we are loving him being here, especially Ned who just cuddles up to him like he has been around him forever. We went to Ned's Christmas party at kindergarten yesterday and helped him make a reindeer hat and he insisted on wearing it when we went out for lunch! Grandpa even painted the red nose on him to complete the look!

Last Sunday it snowed. It snowed so much that schools were cancelled and for the first time since 1997, my campus closed. The roads have been awful, the weather has been freezing so the snow hasn't melted. And last night we had some more. And today we have had more. And it is still snowing now!
In my 8 years in Northern Nevada, I have not ever seen as much snow as I am seeing right now. In fact, I many not have seen this much snow in all my life! And I am annoyed it is a weekend because by Monday, you know that the campus will be open and I will have to go to work! Damn it!
Ned got to sled with the neighborhood kids at an empty lot down the street, while me and another mom made lunch and had martinis - the only way to spend a snow day!
These are pictures from last week - I will take more tomorrow!

I haven't blogged for ages and now I am going to whine. Although no one will probably read it because I think that all my blog friends have become completely fed up with the fact that I don't post and have moved on!
We have had a tremendous amount of snow this week and the roads are so bad. While driving today, my car started to shake and it is either my alignment, or my tires, or both. I had a lot of work done in July which included new tires and an alignment, and now crappy Tires Plus told me that there was only a 3 month warranty on the alignment. $75 and only 3 months? I know that they didn't tell me that because I never would have gone for anything less than 12 months. And because I was so totally fed up and told them to shove it more or less over the phone, I now have to go to a different Tires Plus tomorrow to have them check it over in case it is just the tires/balancing, because they are under warranty.
Stupid snow. Stupid Tires Plus. Stupid tires that do not work in the snow!
Did I mention we have a storm coming in tonight and tomorrow night so there should be more snow? The only thing that will make me feel better right now is that we have so much snow that they close my work again like they did Monday. Fingers crossed for a snow day!
