We finally got some snow. It wasn't much- about 2 or 3 inches but it sure looked pretty. I tried to take some photos while it was snowing last night but I'm not a good enough photographer. I did get this one of my street with the tree that I always photograph in the fall. I took it without a flash at 10:00 at night. It was so silent and beautiful but I had on pj's and socks and wasn't going outside. This was my walk from the train to work. The trees were coated and it was so beautiful. The trouble with snow in the city is that it doesn't stay white for long. This final one is the trees outside our building. We have a nice courtyard in the back that is not supposed to be a haven for smokers but often is. In the warm months, there are always folks sitting there. The schools closed because the city can't afford to plow the secondary streets (if we get a big snowstorm, folks are on their own. In the past, neighbors have banded together to shovel out their street.). Our street hadn't been plowed before we left for work but was nearly clear to the asphalt by the time we got home. It should be nice and icy tomorrow as the temps plummet tonight.
I am going to a Rehabilitation Readiness Assessment training tomorrow. I had to meet with my supervisors today (double teamed again) so they could tell me my trainings were approved. It seems we have some people who (gasp!) don't attend trainings they sign up for! The very idea! My training sounds kinda boring but at least I'll get some knitting done. I'll sit in the back and pay attention and participate when necessary. And maybe get a pair of socks finished.
We're in for a few really cold days and then some nice ones over the weekend. Winter is half over and I noticed something today. At 5 o'clock in the evening - it was still light! I noticed and it made my heart glad.
Now I am off for dinner with Pk. It seems we are the only ones home for dinner and we have decided to go out. See you later!
