It just started snowing today around 1 in the afternoon and I am already done with it. The roads are AWFUL. The news shows that every single road in Durham and Raleigh has stand still traffic. I have been home all day and I am already ready for the snow to melt so I can venture out into the world. Unfortunately, the snow is still coming down. I took pictures of the progression:
Power is expected to go out, so if I haven’t posted any updates in the near future, the power is out.
Since I have been cooped up all day, I don’t have anything exciting to share. Maybe tomorrow I will be more creative with my time?
Last night for dinner I made a broccoli and cheese soup with cornbread. It was good, but I think I will make some tweaks before I share the recipe 🙂 As I was making it, I bit the end off of a carrot just to remove it and I ended up breaking the annoying wire that is my permanent retainer for my bottom teeth. It only broke on one side, but that’s still broken.
Today’s E’s and A’s
For lunch I made hot chocolate, a turkey bacon and spinach grilled cheese, banana with cinnamon, more sweet baby peppers (they are a veggie that is broken permanent retainer friendly) and crackers. Very yummy!
I tried to get a lot of dishes and laundry done today, just incase we do lose power. I thought about driving into Durham to do my running at the Y, but I wasn’t feeling motivated to drive that much. I did some reading before bundling up to do my run outside. I didn’t have a set distance or time in mind for my run today, but when I set out on my run I decided I would go for 5 miles around the neighborhood. Around mile 2.5 I started to see a few flurries and by the time I hit 3.5 the snow was really starting to come down. The wind was blowing as well the snow was blowing right in my eyes. I decided to end my run at 4 miles because I was blinking so much I might as well have been running with my eyes closed!
I watched a few shows on my laptop and did some more reading throughout the afternoon and evening. It does feel good to relax, but I just feel like I have a need to do something more with my time right now! Do you ever feel like that?
It sounds like the snow is starting to turn to freezing rain… that means ice and power outages… If you are experiencing this snow, I hope you stay warm and safe!
