It was such a beautiful day out today! The snow banks now look like crushed ice! It was beautiful! DC has a stadium parking lot to dump all their plowed streets. Arlington doesn't know where to put all the snow! They are having to drive further out and all our garbage is piling up as they have recruited all the garbage trucks to transport snow!! But it's all good! Did you know when the weather is dry, the garbage doesn't stink, you need humidity to add/worsen the stench!? ;) Things you learn after couple of years of diapers.
Glad D's camp spent most of the day outside. She however is done with the snow. It's colder she said and they make for terrible snow creatures! So, any patch of green she sees amidst the snow, she declares, "it's SPRING!"
March, my dear girl, March. Maybe even April or May (like it was two years ago when we celebrated her birthday in winter coats!!) before spring arrives!!
So, yes there are folks complaining. But somehow today, I was feeling very grateful. For all that I have. For the work that's piled up, for the girl who drives us crazy, for the hubby who took care of the home (laundry, meals, and child pickup/drop-off) today, for the jackets that keep us warm, for the people we are surrounded with. Am just thankful!
I am also thankful for the metro, as I believe as I type they are predicting a terrible commute home. The temperatures have dropped and the melted snow is turning icy and everyone in this region loves driving bumper to bumper!
