The Big Storm

Well, we got it yesterday: the first big snowstorm of the season. It snowed for most of the day, a good twelve hours, and we ended up with about 9 inches. Here are the before and after pictures (actually, not a true "after" picture, as it kept snowing for about 4 hours after I took it...but it was dark then):

And hey, here's the Friday Feast!

Appetizer Make up a word and give us its definition. One of my students came up with this one (unintentionally) "ostrichsize" ( instead of ostracize)...shoving oneself off to the side (instead of someone else) and sticking one's head in the sand as a result.

Soup What is currently your favorite song? I can only pick one? OK, I'm still liking "Everything" by Michael Buble. It's just so happy!

Salad What’s at the top of your Christmas wish list this year? Stress-free, non-work time spent with the people I love. I'm not really into material things. I have everything important I could need.

Main Course Name a scent that reminds you of someone special in your life. Dial hubby has always used it :)

Dessert Who is someone on television that you feel probably shouldn’t be, and why? I can only pick one? OK, then Paris Hilton - honestly, people, she has done nothing except had the luxury of being born into a rich, privileged family. She has no talent and not a whole lot of brains. Yet she has a TV show, a recording contract, and actual fans...see why I'm so sad about the world sometimes?

Wow, I like your snow pics! If we get a flurry down here on the Gulf Coast, it's cause for excitement.

And am I the only one in the world who thinks Paris Hilton is ugly?

You're right that is a happy song. I too have had enough of Paris Hilton and those like her. Skank if you ask me. Have a great FF and weekend. :)

Mel said...

The one person I've had enough of this year...Beyonce.

As for the snow...oh my. I'm glad all we get here is thick fog.

Happy Feast Day. Really really profound new word! Loved it. And will USE it!

Shelli Stevens said...

Oooh great pics!! I want snow. You look like you live in a lovely area :)

Dru said...

I'm jealous of your snowfall.

I played a vocab game with my English students as well (also teach hs English). They came up with some crazy stuff. As for Paris Hilton, she's like a nasty train wreck. It is hard to look away . . . but . . . we . . . must!

Oh, and I'm with Mel . . . Beyonce--overkill, along with Paris, Lindsay, Britney (sp?) . . .

We are getting snow today! It is a beautiful snow, but treacherous. Cindi
