Hell hath frozen over...

D.W.Q.M.: "Who sold you on that? An Eskimo?" -Sarah Jane Smith (from the Fourth Doctor story, Seeds of Doom)

I never thought I'd see the day.

Case Western Reserve University will be closed tomorrow.

That's how bad the weather is. Case never closes. I've been on the phone all night with people-including my supervisor-he said it's official, we don't have to report into work tomorrow.

WOO! My first snow day as an adult!!!!!!!!!!

Today has just been crazy.

8:00am Radar shows all of Ohio covered in some sort of precipitation. Mostly snow, except for a slight line of pink, followed by a bit of green in southwest Ohio. Ohio is under a winter storm warning...except for the Toledo area...they are under a blizzard warning.

11:00am Karen, in Columbus, is worried about being able to dig out her car. Up here, the snow isn't that bad...yet.

1:15pm Her boss comes back from lunch-says it's only going to get worse-but doesn't let them go home. Ohio State has closed at…

Ro and Shar's LAFF update #2

D.W.Q.M.: Mel: "His favorite drink is carrot juice."
the Seventh Doctor: "I hate carrot juice!"
Mel: "Oh."

Oops, I've been a little lazy about LAFF updates. So far it's been going okay since the beginning of the year. I haven't been loosing much weight, but then again, I haven't been gaining much either. ;) I've lost about 5 pounds since the beginning of the year-not bad, but not great-I know I can do better.

I've been kind of lazy in regards to exercising in the past week-I didn't do much at all. I thought I was coming down with a cold last week-I was feeling very tired and a little achy. Actually, it probably would have been a lot worse-but since starting this with Shar, I've changed my diet to include more fruits and vegetables-and other healthy choices-I'm sure my immune system appreciates that. ;) I haven't been walking much, either-at least not for 30 minutes. I do enjoy walking in the cold-however-it's been j…

Look, Ma! It can get cold down here!

D.W.Q.M.: Moberly: "Are you OK, dressed like that? You don't seem to notice the cold."
the Fourth Doctor: "I haven't come ten thousand miles to discuss the weather, Mr Moberly."

Woo!

My friend DJ took this picture yesterday morning at his bus stop. Yup, that's two below!

To me, this is what winter is supposed to be like. So cold that you have to bundle up so the only thing people can see are the whites of your eyes. Of coure, I didn't get glasses until I was down here in Ohio-so not being able to see since your glasses are fogging up because of your warm breath is being directed back to them due to the scarf wrapped around your face is still quite an adventure for me. ;)

For the past couple of days, people have been asking me if it's cold enough for me yet. Yes, I constantly complain that it's not cold enough to be winter. I mean-to me, winter means cold! Snow! Sledding! Skating! Ice fishing! (well, ok, I've never done that-but my sister took…
