Snowed in...Time to be creative!
Guess what!!! It snowed last night... and this morning, and this afternoon. As a matter of fact, it is still snowing! We probably have about 10 inches out there... it is so pretty... except on the roads!
This picture was taken just after I got up this morning around 9 am. Jake went out around 10:30 to shovel. He has shoveled 3 times today, shoveling approximately 3-4 inches each time! I was supposed to be at work at 1, but the roads were terrible. So I called in and let them know that I wasn't going to be able to get there. The tires on our car aren't too great on snow and I spun the car around twice last winter, so I'm just a little worried about driving on roads this bad now. It never used to bother me until then. Jake had to drive 1/2 a mile to the store to get cigarettes and he got the car stuck in the parking lot at the store. It hadn't been plowed yet. Heck, the roads haven't been plowed much either. The snow has just kept coming down, extremely heavy at times, making the roads very difficult to navigate. It is beautiful and pure and I'm just amazed at how something so beautiful can be so dangerous at the same time. Here is another picture of the snow, after some snow had been plowed and shoveled, but it was coming down faster than people can clear it.
And since I'm snowed in, I decided to finally get around to altering my computer case. I used Glitz Rub ons and I think it's pretty... and girly. My brother will be horrified when he sees it. He gave me this PC and he'll just think it's silly that I put girly stuff on it. I didn't do a whole lot, because of the way the case is shaped and where the air vents are, but I think it's neat. Here are a few pics.They are of the side of the case. It's just clear plexiglass, so I decided it needed to be prettied up a bit. Hope you enjoy!
