Happy Friday! Are you snowed in
Just look at all that snow (before the freezing rain started)!
We have had the craziest storm here in New York. In one day, we got about a foot of snow, and then the freezing rain started. Now as I write this, it’s snowing again! I think we may even get more snow this weekend.
Needless to say, I’ll be spending a lot of time inside this weekend. It’s probably a good thing, because my apartment could use a good cleaning. So now you know my weekend plans!
