Had a snow day today, what with Chicago shutting down for the 20″ of snow. Gypsy and I spent the day hanging out here and we’re just to the point of getting on each other’s nerves, which must mean it’s bedtime.
I did go out and at least make a first pass towards shoveling out the car, with a neighbor’s help. I’m parked on the street and dug out all the way around. They haven’t plowed my street yet though, or hadn’t at 5:30 p.m., and I don’t really expect they will before tomorrow (side street near Logan Square–not happening), but this meant that we got a path cleared around the car before it all got heavy and dense. I’m sure there will be more shoveling over the next two-three days.
Gypsy got a chance to see the snow, she watched some of the kids who live in my building frolicking this afternoon, and later I opened the back door and let her look out.
She was brave enough to hop into the snow and check it out but temperatures are rapidly falling here and I was cold, so I cut short her adventures.
Tomorrow’s commute is on and it’s supposed to be -3F when I leave the house. I think that calls for long underwear, don’t you?
