A Snowy Tuesday?

I can't figure out whether it's going to snow today or not. It was to have started around 3:00 AM but 3:00 AM  has come and gone and so far..no snow. We are to get 3 to 6 inches of the white stuff.. I got all my running around done yesterday..fearing the worst. I even had an opportunity to wash my car. It "warmed" up to 34 degrees and the one car wash with the doors was open so I spent $5.00 of my last money to get the car cleaned up...at least on the outside. The next warm day I will clean up the inside too. I will put the upholstery tool on my old upright vacuum sweeper and sweep it out.  I like a clean car. 

I'm not sure at this point what we will have for lunch. It may just be warmed up meatloaf and some more potatoes and veggies. Bob came over last evening and we watched some TV but then when it finished, he went home to read and I read too until I got sleepy. I took my bath and went to bed at 9:00. I awoke at 2:30 to a text message from my younger son. Then I couldn't get back to sleep even though I got up and drank some warm milk. That usually does the trick...but not this time. I will need a nap this afternoon, I imagine.

I gave up and got up at 3:45. I imagine I will make the trip to Independence if we miss the snow. Somehow I doubt we will miss it though.  The chance was 100%.  I got my two cakes iced this morning so that's done. If I don't go to Independence, we will freeze them. I have Phyllis' here and Bob has one too. Karan will freeze hers this morning if we get the snow. I don't know what the two from Neodesha and the three from rural Independence will do. Leslie has to come on to work in Independence so she may be able to take hers in. She drives an SUV. 

More later...

Well it began snowing about 8:00 and it looks like we may get the 3 to 6 inches alright. I called the church in Independence and they are cancelling tonight's dinner so we will freeze the cakes and use them next time. I also cancelled my hair appointment.

I am fixing leftovers for dinner today. Bob liked that meatloaf so we will have it again. .I have potatoes boiling now and we will have veggies and what's left of the cottage cheese and pineapple. I have the fruit from yesterday and cookies and also cup cakes so we have a variety of desserts.  

I guess I will read this afternoon and take a nap if I can. I also want to vacuum the house now that I have my vacuum back..

Our weather forecasters lately have not been correct for most of the time. Yesterday morning I took 5 inches off of my car, some of our area ( south western pa ) got up to a foot.
None of it was predicted until it started falling! Prior to that it was snow and rain showers.

We know that a "wintry mix" is to hit tonight ...LOL I think if they say that they are safe because it just means that something will happen! :)

Stay safe and warm! :)

Hi Margie...It's 3:30 here in Illinois and the snow just started. Very fine flakes.
Your meal sounds so good to me...I love meat loaf.
Have a nice evening..
