Do you hear that?

 The snow finally stopped sometime in the early morning and the sun has decided to shine for the first time in a long time. I love the stillness and quite that comes with snow. Everything is muffled, people aren't driving fast and if they are you only hear them when they crash into someone else. It's so quite that I can hear the birds fly! I have also decided that I really like ice-sickles! Preacher man being the really smart dude that he is was telling me about how pressure creates heat! I tried to argue with him about this, but I have a hard time doing that when I have no idea what I'm talking about! I have the same problem when he tries to explain how an air conditioner works!

 Anyway, the weight from the snow creates pressure which produces heat, so that's where ice sickles come from! Don't ask any question please cuz I can't answer them! Another thing I love about the time after a snow is the blueness of the sky! This is the kind of sky we had all the time in Colorado. To see it here just makes me miss that place all the more.

I'm waiting to hear if I have to go to work today. Yesterday I was told instead of working 11-3 they wanted me from 9-1, then found out I'm almost the only one that can get to work and changed it to 9-5. I got a texted last night from the boss saying maybe more like 1-5. It would be fine with me if we didn't even open, I have a paper to write since I finished Februarys' book already! Yeah me!

I'm really getting the hang of getting pictures up here huh? I also got another picture from Daddy yesterday. It was a picture of my younger sister. So I gotta ask you, who looks like trouble? 

That's right the one on the right! We are all very glad that Dee didn't decide to cut hair for a living or she would be really broke! I can't wait till dad sends more so I can put them up and retell stories about what was going on during that part of our life. I would like to say that one of the reasons I know how to have fun is because Dee and I spent a lot of time having it, even if we fought a lot! I will also say that you better not mess with her or I'll come and find you and you will be sorry! Look at that face! Mine, not her's! Don't that face make you scared!

"Don't that face make you scared!"
I'm shaking in my boots ;-)
- Okay, I'm shaking in my slippers...
- Okay, it's not really your picture that's making me shake it's this darn cold winter...
- Okay, I'm shaking because I'm having an ADDish day and I'm stuck working on student aid from home and if I don't keep something moving I'm going to go loony!
Hope you're having a great day whether it's at the Creek or home.
