It's snowing again. I have about 1.5 feet (not inches) of snow piled in my front yard. My car has completely disappeared. I'm fairly certain work will be closed today. There's no way in hell the MAX or buses are running normally today and if I can't find my car, I obviously can't drive it downtown. My street and the main offshoot are completely covered with snow. No one is driving. Some people are skiing, but even the crazy ATV boys on the next street have stayed inside the last two days.

Last night Round Table Pizza was delivering in the local neighborhood so I got a large pizza and two two liters of Diet Pepsi. It's not Diet Coke but I guess in a snow storm it will do. I don't think I've ever seen this much snow since I moved here in 1992, or was it 93? I can't remember, It wasn't too long after I had graduated, but I took a year off to work before becoming a grad student. Sometimes I miss those days. Other times I'm just happy to study on my own. I'm really going crazy for 19th century correspondence. Especially the Shelley circle and the Brontes. But I digress.

I opened up the front door awhile ago to take a couple of pictures in the dark and Trin kept bolting out the door and into the snow. I had to grab her three times. If she had made if off the porch she would had disappeared completely. Then I'd be out in the snow screaming in my T-shirt and yoga pants, trying to dig her out as she burrowed her way through the yard. Craziness. I think she just wanted to play in the snow.

To all my Jewish friends, Happy Hanukkah!
