It's a snowy day...

Very early this morning, before the sun was up, I woke up to a big CRASH sound. Alarmed, I sat straight up in bed and then froze, certain that someone had broken into the apartment and was waiting for me to get out of bed so they could kill me. I have a vivid imagination. It's times like this when I wish I lived with a roommate- preferably a big strong male one- who could get up and go chase the morning monster away. Needless to say, I do not have a big strong man living with me so instead I did what any person would do...I sat there in bed refusing to move for an hour until the silence of the house finally convinced me that no one had, in fact, broken in. Turns out, Tigger had knocked a bucket of kitchen utensils over. Thanks, cat.

So needless to say, I'm a little tired. And it's freezing outside, so I can't stop thinking about my warm comfy bed. Here are a few pictures of what it looks like in my neck of the woods today.
I do bitch about the cold a lot, but I still love the way everything looks with snow blanketing it.
And at least I can walk to work and class, so I didn't have to drive in it.
This is a photo I took a few days ago actually, but I thought it was cool. From far away, it looked like the ducks were standing and walking on the water (like Jesus ducks!). Turns out, the ice was actually just covered up by a thin layer of water, and that's what they were walking on. So, no divine ducks, but still pretty cute!


  1. Those pictures are great! Snow is so pretty.
    What's not great is 0 degree weather. And we don't have the pretty snow to look at. That's Kansas for you.

  2. 0 degree weather is what they're predicting on Friday for us. Which makes sense, since what's in Kansas usually comes our way eventually. :(
