It has snowed pretty much straight through for the last three days. We got an additional 6 inches of powder by noon today. I like snow, but this is getting ridiculous. My brother and I went snow shoeing again today, and you couldn't see our trail from yesterday. I guess I am in better shape than Jeremy because I ended up breaking trail for about 3/4 of our loop, because it wore him out too much when he took the lead. The superintendent of schools here is a moron and didn't cancel school today. Definitely should have! I have seen three cars get stuck in the snow in the intersection right outside my window just in the last hour. I know a bus driver for the local district, and he was fuming because he had to risk the kids lives driving in these conditions.
I brought the snow shoes home with me in hopes I will get out again tonight and tomorrow as well. Usually they live at my parents' house, but dad said it was fine to bring them home with me. None of the sidewalks are plowed yet, so it is good conditions for snow shoeing.
Cooper wasn't thrilled with walking in thigh deep (on me) snow, as I have to lead to break a trail for him. Normally he likes to lead, but not when he can't see where he is going. It was hard going for him even with me leading the way. Now he is curled up in my lap, snoozing. He was sitting in front of the heater while I walked, but I guess he got too toasty. Poor puppy!
So, I have taken to pacing in my apartment to get some of my exercise in. It takes me about 5 seconds to pace from one end of my studio apartment to the other. I logged 63 minutes today. Anybody want to figure out how many laps I walked today? (logged 3.2 miles)
Also did some yoga, my abs challenge workout, and I have to walk the dog again this evening. Busy day! Oh, and I had lunch with mom and dad in there as well. It isn't even 5pm... I think I am doing well. But really the snow can stop now!
