Out here in the far reaches of Sapulpa (on the back road to Kellyville) we
are still pretty well snowed in.    The local farmers came by Tue afternoon
with their tractors and moved some snow around, making it a passable ice
road for brave 4WD souls.  I measured 17" of snow in my front yard, with 3'
drifts in the back yard. We did get the Jeep out and crunched down the snow
on the driveway to get out if needed, which we haven't done yet, as there is
a treacherous hill between us and WalMart.  Meanwhile, I'm catching up on
grading, reading, and writing my novel.  We're well stocked here so I've
been exercising my culinary skills to the great pleasure of my husband.
However, I'm afraid to get on the scale and see how much damage all this has
done to my meager attempt at loosing weight.  (Don't things like this always
happen when you make New Year's resolutions?)

Regardless, we're enjoying the rest, relaxation, fine food, birdwatching,
and good company of each other.  With the weather predictions as grim as
they are, I'd not be surprised if school remains closed all next week, too.
