SNOW DAY

It's Friday, it's NOT payday and it's deeper than poop out there. I have never seen this much snow on my driveway in the 18 years we've lived in this house. And I ain't goin' nowhere. First of all, I got a call at 6 this morning from IMSA, where Zach goes to school, announcing that they have a SNOW DAY. And for those of you that don't know, IMSA is a residential school - Zach lives in a dorm room on campus. Unfortunately, the teachers aren't afforded the same luxury. Thus the SNOW DAY. Of course, I knew last night, when it took me 3.5 HOURS to drive home from work, that it was going to be tough traveling today. But, just in case, I waited until this morning to make up my mind - but like I said - I AIN'T GOIN' NOWHERE. I have a 43 mile commute - I would get there about the time I would be scheduled to go home.

So. I get to play with my 2 month old snow blower (5HP, 2 stage monster) and when I'm done with that, I'm going to finish my painting. Today. I have made up my mind.
But right now I need some coffee. Later.

UPDATE: Please notice the 'Slideshow' in the sidebar on the left. I have added this page element as part of an effort, on my part, to focus more on 'Art' in this blog - to make this more of a day by day diary of a fledgling artist. I read people like Sandy and Lotus and Siobhan and Veronica - and I realize that I don't have the same kind of 'blogging' in me, and yet, their type of blogging is what I would otherwise aspire to. I love to comment - I will continue, obviously, to make the witty, pithy and sometimes obscene comments for which I am noted. I mean, I am noted for that stuff, right?

So sorry to hear about the snow. That commute sounds killer! Glad you'll be able to dabble on your painting today.I love the slideshow! It was the first thing I noticed when I came over :)

And yes, your comments are noted for that ;)
