Three Snow Days in a Row and a Dustpan…Yes, a Dustpan

Here in Virginia we are snowed in! Now, I'm from upstate NY in the Adirondacks, so when I say that, I don't mean 2 feet of snow, but we got 8 inches here on Wednesday and since we are in the south, 8 inches can be crippling to the area. Needless to say, I haven't been at school since Tuesday and they just called to cancel tomorrow too. It's like a second winter break. Though I know we will have to make at least one day up, I've been enjoying it. Yesterday, I was totally lazy. Today I was a bit more productive. Tomorrow it's going to be time to get out of the house and at least head to the gym. Not that I mind being stuck in the house now and then, I mean look at how beautiful my backyard was this morning:
I'm certainly not in a rush to get away from that view, but I'm feeling a bit disconnected from the world after being home for 2 days. 

Today, faced with the realization that we no longer own a shovel and the fact that our cars were plowed in, I did what any person would do. I shoveled our two parking spaces with a dustpan. That's not a typo. See my snow weapon of choice below:

 Hope that brought a smile to your face!
