You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. I’ll open this thread every Monday and Friday. So anything good happen to you this weekend?

Has your street been plowed yet?

  • Rave: snowmen and sledding with the kids this weekend, with hot cocoa. Im turning into Martha Stewart. Its bizzarre. Santa rally in progress. Hoping fedex will bring my xmas dinner on time, i said i would cook didnt I.

    Rant: I am the only one here.

  • Rant: I am totally not in shape to walk in snow this high for any length of time.

    Rave: In between the frequent stops I have to take to breathe, I can’t stop marveling at how utterly beautiful it is.

  • Rant: People who do not shovel their sidewalks….there is a special place in hell for these folks…especially businesses.

  • Rant – As a law abiding, tax paying citizen, I had to go to work in the midst of this frozen death. As I pulled out of my columbia heighs residence i was greeted by stench of rollicking bums stumbling down 16th street, reveling in the tragedy of their lives. As my modest sedan rumbled through the unplowed backstreets I was greeted with scowls from bundled up drug peddlers. Where is law enforcement? In the cover of snow these questionable characters are even more dangerous.

  • Rant: I have to work. It’s my birthday. You’d think I could at least get a snow day, but no.

  • Rave: Got out of BWI yesterday. delayed 3 hours, but can easily live with that. Flight before me to Houston was canceled, so those passengers were on stand-by all day…

    Rave: Texas weather! 60 and sunny.

  • Kalorini

    Rave: One-day work week. Super-relaxed weekend filled with PJs and cookie-baking. Done with Christmas shopping. Hiatus boyfriend still loves/misses me.

    Rant: My entire torso hurts from shoveling my car out of the snow yesterday–I can’t even enjoy sneezing!

    @jules – Happy Birthday!

    Happy Holidays everyone 🙂

  • Rant: American Airlines.

  • @jules, Happy Birthday! Maybe they’ll give you an extra vacation day for making the effort.

  • Rave: No work today!

    Rant: You don’t bring a gun to a snowball fight!

  • Rave – I have a job now after 5 months of unemployment!!

    RANT – damn job is as a federal contractor, and I DON’T get paid for snow days, or any time off for Christmas that I already had plans for….so I’m losing FOUR days pay now, instead of 3 due to this weather.

  • Rant: Today is a snow day, but because I’m leaving for home on Wednesday and have so much to do before then, I decided to come in anyways. And now I can’t get motivated!

    Rant2: I’m going to the Midwest, where lots more wintery weather is predicted. Might not be able to see the family! :*(

    Rave: I had a nice loooong weekend with the Boy. Can’t remember the last time he had a Saturday off…

  • rant: girlfriend wasn’t able to visit because of the snow.

    a) made really good mushroom bourgignion
    b) I like my job and was getting bored at sitting at home (plus I have stuff to do before xmas) so it’s good that work was open!
    c) gf was able to reschedule for Wednesday night.

  • Rave: Got to properly enjoy the snow like a kid again – sledding, pickup football in knee-high know, snow men, snow-ball fights, followed by rum-spiked hot cider. Really, a Sunday can’t get much better than that.

    Rant: at work. but at least I’m nearly alone here, so Pandora is making it much more enjoyable.

  • Rant: I can’t find a snow shovel. My car is stuck.

  • rant: I laughed at all my suburban friends on facebook who spent Sunday shoveling their driveways. But then it took me well over an hour to dig out the car today on the street! And here I had always said not having to shovel snow was one of the the advantages of renting an apartment instead of owning a house!?

    rave: It is really beautiful out today – even for shoveling snow, and it was a good workout!

  • Rave: The roads were clear enough for me to drive 2 hours on Sunday down to the Northern Neck to winterize the boat. Beautiful sunset and crescent moon scene from the snow covered deck.

    Rant: Why do I year-after-year wait til the last minute to winterize the darned engine!

    Rave: Great wedding scene Saturday night in the snow down at the gangplank marina aboard the Miss Ann. The bartender didn’t make it so we each got to take turns running the open bar. What fun! And oh yea, lamp popsicles, yum.
