Snow Day for the Turtle

December 11, 2010

By any possible definition, today is a stay-at-home snow day for the turtle.

It’s Saturday. Best to stay at home.

I had knee surgery on Wednesday. Best to stay at home.

It’s time to trim the tree and decorate for Christmas. Best to stay at home.

Oh … and by the way … we’re being buried by a blizzard!!!

Minnesota is getting socked by a good one-two punch. First is the snow. We’ve already got about a foot of new snow on the ground and it’s still snowing hard. We are expecting an additional 4-8 inches.

Next comes the cold. The winds are starting to whip up and the temps are about to plunge. Tomorrow’s forecast high is a mere 3 degrees (-16 c).

So today is a perfect day to stay indoors and do nothing. We’ve set up the Christmas tree and the kids are decorating. Beth is addressing Christmas cards and I am just sitting about trying to heal from surgery.

A cold and quiet day!
