Snow is a four letter word!

I consider myself a tough ol’bird – move furniture for a living, kill bugs, mow the lawn – but I’ve got to admit this snow storm just about did me in! One long driveway + 20 inches of drifting snow + no snow blower = sore muscles and fatigue even two days later! Oh my!

Wednesday morning looking out my front door while it was still snowing.

Shoveling begins!

That’s a lot of snow!

So, what’s your blizzard ‘11 story? Like me are you still feeling the effects of shoveling out? Did you enjoy the middle of the week “snow day”? Did you have to scramble to make arrangements due to the storm? What did you hurry out and purchase either Monday or Tuesday when you realized we really were going to get hit with a ton of snow? In addition to milk and diet coke (which everyone should always have on hand – though not beverages you’d drink together), on Monday I made a quick trip to the library so I’d have a stack of books on hand to read!

The weather certainly impacted donation pickups this week, though the guys did have a long and full day on Tuesday! So – thankfully – the store is actually brimming over with inventory. Let’s take a look!

So, hopefully you’re all dug out and can head to the store either today (Friday) from 1 to 8 or tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 to 4! Bring cash, VISA, or MasterCard and some Tylenol in case I need more for my sore muscles! *smile*

Take care, dear reader!
