Snow Day!

 First of all, thank you to all of you who sent kind wishes this week.  My eye is healing nicely and another couple of weeks I can get my new prescription and finally see clearly again.
We have snow here in Portland.  We don't get snow very often, or even every winter, so the city comes to a standstill when it happens.  We have no equipment for clearing the roads and we don't even own snow shovels here so all we can do it sit and wait for it to melt.  Temps have been in the low 20s and very windy so it feels even colder.  Brr....The local news programs sure do love it!
 Snow Day implies staying home and playing but no such luck for me.  I have a lot on my plate right now so I worked remotely and that always feels like more work than working in the office - lol!  It all works out in the end, though.  Today felt like I worked on a Saturday so when Sunday gets here it will feel like a bonus day off.  Seriously.  That's is how easy I am to fool.
And this is the ugly side of the winter wonderland.  The direction of the wind has filled the covered patio with snow.  The husband lifted the lid on the barbecue and snow has even sifted inside.  Luckily, snow never lasts long around here.  We have one more day to go then Sunday will be rain and in the 40s again.
It isn't looking good for junking tomorrow...!

If you were working remotely, then your eyes must be much better.

Snow day looks crazy.

We actually got rain yesterday.

LOL welcome to my world - been like this since November here in mid Michigan (at least it feels that long!).....But the days are getting longer and it is has to change over at some point right!

That's quite a winter wonderland you have. Maybe you can fire up the bbq and melt it all away. The hot tub looks pretty inviting right now. Stay warm!!

Hmmm, looks very familiar. We have freezing rain here today...yay! But like you said it will all be going away soon. It's been pretty while it lasted.
Glad to hear about your eye.....!

Our covered patio looks like yours! Glad your eye is doing well. I have a touch of cabin fever as I have not left the house in 10 days (was sick for a while and then the snow). Warmer days are coming!!

Your logic about the bonus day off makes perfect sense to me :-P
I like the snow as long as I don't have to go out in it. Except to take pretty pictures like yours!

First, so glad you are doing well, I missed the post about your eye surgery. It is just amazing how quickly people heal and how easy the surgery is. When I was a young nurse in the late 70's people were in the hospital for 4 days and could not move their heads for 24 hours! Snow, how crazy is that...Everyone has had crazy weather this year, it has even been cold in Orlando it is 55 tonight and has rained for 3 days

Glad you are healing
