Thaw me out Thursday

Inspired by’s post, What I Want Wednesday, I decided to create my own alliteration and post (albeit three days late) Thaw Me Out Thursday.

While the scenery this past week was breathtaking, the roads were slippery,power lines were falling and it was a bit of a mess. We had rain, then ice, then snow on Tuesday morning which led to this beautiful winter wonderland you see above (and about a foot of snow).

To top it off, this was the first week of “split spring break” and my daughter’s space/science camp was canceled Tuesday due to the treacherous road conditions. I, fortunately, was able to work from home. Good thing. Because (a) I couldn’t get out of my driveway and (b) there was no way I was going to leave the house. So for a day or so, suffice it to say I resented everyone that went to Florida for spring break.

By Saturday, the temperature reached 59 degrees. Practically unheard of for this time of year in snowy, cold New York State. We rejoiced! And my daughter and I headed to a quaint, nearby ski resort town for some shopping and lunch. Consider me thawed! (For now.)
