    Tons of snow yesterday, ice over night. This is the second day my kids have been home from school.

    The ice is so thick it's bringing down trees and power lines. The big tree in my back yard snapped almost all of it's limbs, I have a huge mess to clean up, and I'm pretty sure it's finally going to have to come down in the spring.

    I kept getting woke up last night by what sounded like gunshots, the sounds of limbs snapping. I still have power right now, but all the trees around the neighborhood.

    Annnnnnd, just now a brach fell on my van - DAMNIT!!!!

    I'm gonna go move it.

    We are getting the same storm here buddy. That is why I started about my University not canceling the other day. Same nasty storm. Oh well. Guess I can play a bunch of x-box and drink some hot chocolate.

    Yeah, I'm getting the storm here in Jersey now. The snow's done, but now it's freezing rain outside. Joy. Thankfully, my company is opening two hours late.

    Man I'm getting way annoyed, the kids are driving me nuts because they have nothing to do.

    I was off work today anyway, at least I have a gas heater, stove, and water heater so we won't get cold can cook, and take a hot shower.

    No gym today, looks like I'll have to bust out my bench, today is chest day! Haha!

    Normal high this time of year is around 60. So there are some days during January it might reach up to 70.

    Aww c'mon, don't you wish you were down here yesterday enjoying a mild and sunny day, instead of that frigid cold up in Indiana?

    Where I live in New York, we have had snow for weeks now, and not the play-friendly kind.

    We were hit with a blizzard last night, so no school. YES!
