I blame the snow for my insomnia.

It has been snowing for 12 hours now.

Trust me, that sounds more impressive than it actually is.

The first 5 hours, it was WARM snowing, so nothing even stuck to the ground. It was like rain, but not.

I'm actually a little bit disappointed. I keep waiting for the snow storm of the century to blow down my front door, and it's just not.

Of course, maybe it will snow fiercely while I sleep tonight.

At any rate, we are fully stocked, and taking a cue from Jen, I went to the store and stocked up on Dorito's and chocolate.

In other news, not weather related, I was thinking about maybe actually doing that whole take a picture every day thing. Of course, just thinking about it has me thinking up excuses because we all know that if I make a GOAL of some sort, I will do everything in my power to self-sabotage. It's how I roll. 

Back to the weather, because WHILE WE'RE ON THE TOPIC...

Can we talk about how annoying it is that it is bright as a midsummer's day out there at midnight because the snow is all glistening and reflective and stuff? It is driving me crazy because I need pitch black darkness to sleep and that is currently unavailable. Waah.

Seriously though, I never even THOUGHT about snow and reflections before, but I can tell you this for certain now, I will never live in Alaska, or Minnesota, or anywhere else that will not allow for pitch black darkness at night.



  1. You should see the snow reflecting off the mountains... The first time I s aw it I thought the Aliens were coming to get me.

  2. and you're in the valley too. Ugh, adding UT to my list of places to NEVER EVER LIVE.

  3. Be glad it's not a full frikkin moon! It's like trying to sleep with all the lights on when that happens around me!

  4. I promise you, we have plenty of snow just two hours southwest of your house. Snow AND ice...oh joy. We could get up to 30" in the next 24 hours.

  5. It's been snowing for like 2 months straight where I live.

    PS I have black curtains in my bedroom. It's the only way.

  6. Okay, so I get that you need the pitch. I totally do. But the whole snow reflection only happens maybe once a year. And I. Love. IT.

  7. I self-sabotage, too.

    That's why it is best I never make goals. Too labor intensive to find all of those ways to destroy my plans.

  8. My sister in law lives where you do and we've been getting a lot of reports from her. I'm thinking aboutn now, you are absolutely experiencing the snow storm of the century beating down your door? I hope you're still with power, and that all are warm and safe.
