Last week, Virginia Beach was declared in a “state of emergency” while we received more than the usual amount of snow at a whopping 7-10 INCHES! Kids were sent home early yesterday and even the library was closed early for everyone to go home and prepare for this massive “snow storm”. Geez. Ridiculous. I know we don’t get a lot of snow here, but people were buying everything out at the stores like it was the end of the world, when usually no one does anything when we are faced with a hurricane. I guess all we can do is laugh at everyone going crazy. haha
I did go to the store and grab some munchies to last for a day or two, mainly chips, soda, pizza and lets not forget chocolate donuts for creative purposes. I bunkered in for the night, and was introduced to “snow cream” and I am apparently one of few who have never heard of it. I quickly learned it was fresh snow mixed with either milk, half and half, condensed milk or creamer mixed with sugar and viola! SNOW CREAM. It reminded me of the little blizzard kit my daughter got for Christmas a few years ago and it was almost like a milkshake. Pretty tasty.
I have stayed in all day mainly because the roads are not plowed and I do not want to risk getting hit by someone who has no idea how to drive in the snow. I am thankful I do have experience from driving in the snow thanks to good ol’ Fort Drum, NY where I was stationed for 4 years. Oh, if only I knew where some pictures were. hmmmm. And how could I forget the many winters I have spent in Denver, Colorado. I have had my fair share of snow and I cant wait to move south in a few years.
I have kept myself pretty busy thanks to be confined to my house and even though I do not have internet at my house (which is probably for the best, so I do not get distracted) I have finished a few drawings and now working on some other projects.

I am pretty proud of myself for being able to stay focused for longer than 15 minutes. haha
What have you guys been up to?
