I hadn't had time to eat because we left really early not knowing how the driving would be. So we had time for breakfast. There's a Starbucks inside the hospital so Joe bought me a cranberry muffin and an iced tea. That muffin was so good!
We had to go to three different departments so it took longer than expected to get out. I thought I would be back to work by noon, but when we got out at 11:00 I knew I wouldn't make it. I called work and told them I would be there around 1:00.
On the way home we stopped at Lowe's to get some salt for the pavement. There were only a few bags left. People were walking out with 20 - 30 bags in their carts. We wanted just one. Then we went across the parking lot to Chick-Fil-A and got some lunch. It was a treat for Joe since he seldom gets out of the house. And I have fallen in love with their grilled chicken. I tried it once and will never go back.
I dropped Joe off at home. He was light headed so I got him upstairs to go to bed. I started to go to the bathroom and then heard a thump. Joe had fallen again. So I helped him get up and in to bed. He promised to stay there until I got home at 6:30.
It was snowing pretty hard as I started to work. I turned on the radio and was almost to the library when I heard that all city offices were shutting down at 2:00. OK. I debated about turning around and going home, but I was almost there, so I went in.
I worked a whole hour, then went home for the day. I was sort of glad to do that because by now it was starting to lay and I wasn't looking forward to that drive home in the dark.
The back yard looked nice though.

I had some energy so I started cleaning the living room, taking down the wintery things and putting out some Valentine's things. Joe had given me one of my Valentine's gifts early. He was too excited to wait. Isn't this a beautiful candle holder? I have never seen anything like this. I put it on top of the stove heater.
The snow started laying last night. I was sure it was going to be bad and was glad I had gotten a parking spot in front of the house.
Today I woke up to the news that the City was closed for today. I didn't have to go to work. I love snow days. I'm just like a kid.
But... we didn't get all that much snow. All the schools were closed, the city was closed, and we got 1 1/2 inches of snow. I was about to go out to clean off the sidewalk when I heard a noise and saw one of my neighbors walk past the window. I went to the door and my sidewalk was done. Even though it wasn't warm out, by this afternoon the walkway was completely dry and clear. That was so nice.
You can see how overcast it was this morning and the snow was still coming down.
By this afternoon, however, the sun was trying to peek through the clouds.
I lit my candle, cleaned some, made meatloaf for dinner and watched TV. Back to work and Bible Study tomorrow. It's been a good day.
