I hope the storm was over by 1 and didn't leave much accumulation. I'm very sorry you have to wait some more for your car. The storm that hit us hard in February was named Pax, which means peace. The snow storm's mess factor doesn't seem to be affected by the name. I hope this will be your last storm. Have a good weekend.

I hope you do get your car bakc tomorrow. I know that will be a relief. May the snow miss you too. I see that some areas in the East are being hit hard again. This winter just won't quit! I totally understand what you mean about the cost of having pets now. I know when the two last inside cats go to the Rainbow Bridge, I won't be able to have anymore, and that's going to be really hard to deal with. However, I'm more than ready to retire and won't have the money to care for them properly. Life isn't easy for sure. Enjoy being mobile again.

I do hope your forecast is wrong, but I know cold air is coming Wednesday night. If it must cause anything frozen, I hope it will be very little. Spring needs to hurry along a bit faster--raccoons and all. Will you get your car back this week? I hope so.

I'm glad you didn't have the rotten weather. We started with some snow, and then came sleet. Next there was sleet and freezing rain. Plain rain didn't come until almost noon, and our high temperature later was 33. I'm beyond tired of this. I hope you will have a good weekend.

Seven sounds long to me anytime. We work multiple twelve-hour days during the year, and they are looong! I hope you have a radio or something to keep you company if you don't go down where the techs are. We are supposed to go down to 8 tonight with a wind chill to be added. I'm more than tired of winter. It's hard to believe it was in the seventies just yesterday, but it was nice while it lasted. May 7 come quickly for you.

I'm glad you got the car in okay and that a lot of things can be taken care of at the same time. That is rotten that you will be staying at work until 7. I hope you only have to do that today. We don't know what the schedule will be for the long days. No one at the top has deigned to give us that information yet. We have had mostly sleet, so at least the power should stay on unless the wind blows over some trees. There was some snow too, but it has stopped for now. More is supposed to come shortly though. I hope this will be winter's last hurrah.

We have already missed ten days and have added all to the end of the year that we can. We have summer school, and teachers go back to work the first week of August. I would much rather take days from spring break, but the upper administration won't hear of it. Many plan trips then and don't want to have to take vacation time. Adding time to the day is grinding, and if the warnings that keep coming in are even near right, we will be lucky if we miss only two days. That will mean 32 long days. At least it appears we are going to take the biggest hit and that your frozen mess won't be too bad. I hope that will be the case for you. Thank goodness the air bags didn't deploy! I really don't like them and would disable them if it wouldn't keep the car from passing inspection. I wish they would put full harness seat belts into vehicles instead of the air bags. I don't even move the car from one part of the driveway to another without buckling up. I hope you won't have a bit of trouble getting your car to the garage.

I know you are going to get blasted again early next week, and I'm so sorry. This winter just doesn't want to end. We have a chance of some snow Monday too and again at the end of the week. I have my fingers crossed that we don't have much. If we miss anymore school, we have to make it up by adding a half hour to the school day (sixteen days of this for each additional day we miss). Our classes are already 90 minutes long. I don't think I can take it. LOL I hope you are having a good weekend and that the storm won't be as bad as predicted.

We just learned today that it has been confirmed there was a tornado on the ground in another part of the state last Friday. We were lucky. That's great that your snow is almost gone. I hope there won't be anymore big snows to replace it. I'm really sorry about the deer accident. We have lots of deer too, and they run out so quickly, even when not being chased, that it's impossible to avoid them. I'm glad your car isn't totaled and you weren't hurt. If this had to happen, at least the glass went outside and not on you. Of course you are upset. I know you didn't want to hurt the deer or have your car damaged. There was absolutely nothing you could have done to avoid it though. I hope it won't take long to repair your car.

From Sylviag. Many thanks for participating in the KKPS Olimpiks by making, faving or just enjoying the creativity. If I forgot anyone, I sincerely apologize as it takes many hours, often late at night to compile the info and stats and mistakes may have been made :) http://cheezburger.com/8083580928

I'm glad your snow pack is starting to melt. We had a line of bad thunderstorms go through today and were under a tornado watch--very unusual for February. Fortunately there were no tornadoes. I have been blessed with a bunch of cats with absolutely no desire to go outside. If an outside door is opened, they hustle off in the opposite direction. Therefore, I have not chipped any of them. I've been told and have read that it is painless for the animals, but how can anyone know that for sure? We know our furry friends are very good at masking pain. I wish they could tell us about things like this. I would think though that even if there is pain, it wouldn't be horrible and wouldn't last long. If the cat is an escape risk, some brief pain is worth it to be safe. I hope your weekend seems to last a long time and is refreshing.

I would love nothing more than to retire, but I'm not old enough to draw full Social Security yet or even have Medicare (another year and a half to go on that) and state retirement alone is a joke, so I must trudge on. I'm glad your snow turned to rain but sorry everything was frozen this morning. I hope you will have warmer air and rain to help melt things. Snowfall records are being broken all over the place this winter. I hope all of this isn't an indication of a bad hurricane season later.

There is no break for teachers. We take work home with us over all the so-called breaks and holidays and weekends, and in the summers we make new units for our classes, take classes to renew our licenses, and constantly go to our buildings to set things up in our rooms. That's the tip of the iceberg, and we'll let it go at that. I'm sorry you had snow instead of rain. I hope you warmed up later and it all melted. We started the day with some sleet, but now we are in the upper fifties and are supposed to have a mild week. I hope that will be true all the way up the coast.

Yeah, I was watching Fox news and they said another system was just behind this one with more snow and coldness!! And it doesn't sound like the 40 degrees we're supposed to get in a day or so will last long enough to melt an icecube. Hubby is doing fine and so are all the kittehs. BooBoo lost another pound, but she's doing well with the sodium chloride in her back and her thyroid meds. Got her on cosequin and some back-up pain meds for her arthritis. I wish I could take some of that pain med myself! lol! I still have Kiki, the stray from across the street. She's sooo much calmer since she's been neutered altho she still has a tendency to run away from me at times. I've been spring cleaning early since I can't go anywhere, or I just don't want to unless I have to. I'm glad all your kittehs are fine. I'll keep Sparky in my prayers. xox
