In Like A Lion... Out Like A Lamb

Or so the saying goes. All I know is that we have seen our fair share of the Lion this year, thank you very much. This latest winter storm dumped over 11 inches of  lovely wet snow on Louisville. When we went to bed it was just getting started. When we woke up it was pretty much over except for the digging out part. Thanks to all of you who checked up on us to make sure that we weren't buried alive. The national news probably made it look a whole lot worse than it was, unless you were in one of those lucky cars stuck on interstate 65 for 15 hours. That was just crazy.  The good news is that the sun has been out all day today and a lot of melting has been the result. The bad news is that now there is a concern for some serious flooding over the next few days. We just can't catch a break. I did not leave the house Wednesday or Thursday, so cabin fever was setting in. Today I ventured out (not far mind you) to Trader Joe's and JoAnn Fabrics. I finally finished knitting a sweater and it needed buttons. That's a good excuse to risk my life dodging mounds of snow and potholes don't you think? I wondered around both nearly empty stores for quite a while and found some buttons and these beautiful spring like daffodils. Things are looking up. Alan is supposed to run in a 5K downtown tomorrow morning. which I'm not so sure is going to happen. We were also hoping to make it to the Maple Syrup Festival over in Indiana. Maybe by Sunday that will sound like a better idea. Hope you have fun weekend plans. Don't forget to "spring forward" your clocks Saturday night.
