Literally snowed in - what's the best way to kill a snow day?

Hey ladies. My front door will not open more than about 4 inches right now because it is blocked with snow, so we may be stuck for the day! Sad 

If you ARE venturing out today, what are you doing that would motivate you to be out and about?

And, if you are staying in, how do you plan on killing time today?

I realize that cleaning would be the best option for me, but I really really don't feel like it at all!! Crying

Lots of love and continual explosions of babydust to my BG Besties! XOXOXOXO

Re: Literally snowed in - what's the best way to kill a snow day?

  • I'm going to be making some Christmas crafts that I just haven't gotten around to doing yet. I'll probably do some cleaning and maybe wrap presents. I'm hoping that being snowed-in will help me complete some of my to-do list around the house.

    That, and we have Netflix, so we're all good. Hope you find something to keep yourself busy!

  • Baking, cleaning and watching Grown Ups and/or anything else on Netflix!  (Thank God for Netflix)  I will be venturing out tonight for a graduation party but it's less than 10 min away.

  • we're tiling our shower. and watching netflix.
  • I'm out!!  DH drove me to work because he had some errands in the area.  The roads aren't too bad, it's just the blowing snow and visability that make driving difficult.  I wish I was snowed in so I could clean my house and do the puzzle we have been working on.  Oh well, I brought school work and my Christmas cards to do so I will just be fielding calls from residents wondering when their driveways are going to be plowed.

  • We are supposed to go to a Holiday party tonight, but I'm not sure if we'll make it. Our street is AWFUL. They plowed our alley, but that just meant that the snow drift moved a bit...

    I will be baking cookies, cleaning and doing laundry. Oh, and watching Dexter on Netflix!

  • I plan on grading quizzes, put up my Christmas tree, and maybe cleaning a bit. I already have beef stew cooking in the crockpot for dinner tonight.
  • Probably watch movies today.  And maybe wrap some gifts.

  • We were going to do all of our Christmas shopping today, but looks like those plans have changed!  Instead I'm going to try baking cake balls for the first time. yumyum.
  • I HAVE to go to work this afternoon for a few hours. If I didn't, I wouldn't be venturing out at all.

    It's normally a 10-15 min drive. I'm considering giving myself an hour and a half to get there. I'll probably just give myself an hour. 

  • I made cinnamon rolls already and have dough rising for Gruyere Loaves, then I'm making pizza dough to freeze and making Jerk Chicken Chili for dinner!

    In between kitchen time we are having a Harry Potter marathon. I also hope to update my blog (finally:/) with 12 treats of Christmas!

  • I had a hair appointment that I actually made it to and back, however we got stuck halfway in the street and our driveway a second ago trying to get in our garage. DH is not a happy camper at the moment.

    We're staying in the rest of the day, making grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup and watching Christmas movies from On Demand from Comcast all day. Nice and relaxing.

  • We went to my moms which is about 5 houses away, we went via sled, it wasn't so bad when we went at 9am but we juts got home and it's bad. The wind really has picked up. We plan to stay in the rest of the day. DH and I are heating up some pizza and going to work on a few Christmas presents while LO is napping. Then we are going to build a gingerbread house.
  • I love the storm, but I'm super bummed that I can't take DD to see Santa like I planned.  We are finishing Christmas decorating, cleaning and I have a DVR full of Lifetime, ABC Family and Hallmark movies to watch.

  • My boyfriend is an operations manager at a company downtown that does snow removal in the winter so he's working 5am-5pm. Just me and the puppy hanging out since our townhouse community hasn't even been plowed yet.

     So far I have cleaned, done 3 loads of laundry, and did some organizing.

    My plan for the rest of the day is to prepare some meals for the upcoming week, watch a ton of movies and show on netflix, and maybe attempt to crochet (I started a little when I got some hooks and yarn for Christmas last year, but I got bored with it).

    Be safe out there, everybody!

  • Well, Up Here we have no snow today - very sunny.  But the temperature is 0 degrees, and the windchill is -21.  I went skating this morning and watched some of my students play hockey, then planned to do some shopping around town.  It is BITTER outside, and I have no desire to walk from store to store.  So I came home to do laundry, finish decorating, tidy up my bathrooms, and finish grading.  I'll probably list some stuff on eBay later today too.
  • DH and I put away some baby stuff, looked for cheap places to order Xmas cards from, DH has chili in the crockpot and now we are snuggled on the couch watching tv shows from last week that we dvr'd. We are pretty much going to be couch potatoes today.

  • Just finished working out. Got to love fitness videos on Netflix.  I've already watched a little tv.  I may clean something, but I don't want to make a commitment. 
  • So far we've had a great breakfast, made crockpot chili together to be ready for dinner, had a visit by my brother, one session away from being caught up on editing and having a blast playing a friend's borrowed wii!

    Fingers crossed the power stays on! We're having a great day!

  • Our choir concert in Stillwater was canceled.  Thank goodness.  It doesn't make sense to drive all that way with these conditions to sing a few songs.  Nosiree.   My mom was freaking out about it earlier when I still planned to go (she freaks out about one raindrop in the sky though.)  But then my DAD started freaking out about it and you know that it's bad if he gets really worried.

    I'm going to snuggle with my puppies on the couch and watch movies on the DVR.  DH took the bus a mile to his part time job this morning.  If they pull the buses off the roads he might have to walk home because there is no way either of ours cars can get through this.

  • Just put a batch of cookies in the oven. I made this recipe :


    Otherwise I haven't done much. Did some cleaning and blog reading. H has been watching sports/playing video games. In about an hour we are going to go attempt to shovel the driveway, which will be my workout for the day. Then movies, making homemade pizza, and beers :)

    It's up to my HIP, guys.  This is insane! I kind of love it Smile

  • We went outside in our full snow gear and played in the snow for a bit.  The wind was soo cold though so that didn't last long!  We walked to our neighbors house and the path hadn't been plowed yet so I was trying to walk through snow that was up to my thighs! Then we walked to Aldi down the street from our house, picked up some baking supplies, and we are going to make Christmas cookies, watch movies and play games.  I love days like this- at least when I don't have to work!
  • Oh we also have helped shovel out at least 5 cars that got stuck on the street before the plows came through a little while ago.  Then the plow got stuck and had to be shoveled out too!
  • Work didn't end up happening. I gave myself a full hour and a half to get there and got stuck about 5-6 feet from my garage for a good solid 2 hrs. Luckily, my boss was understanding, but I still feel really guilty about not being there. I feel like I'm putting a big burden on those who could make it in.
  • I wouldn't feel bad. I hear the POSTAL workers got called off. No one should be driving at all. Plows got pulled, everyone got pulled off.
  • Oh, I know I shouldn't feel bad. I imagine I'm far from the only one who got snowed in today.

    The PLOWS got pulled off??? Wow. That is amazing. I don't remember ever seeing snow like this. This is crazy. And my H gets a kick out of driving in this stuff. His 4 wheel drive and snow tires on his Tahoe and we were out for a good part of the day.

    We are home now and he is plowing the driveway and then going to do the neighbors drive. I SHOULD clean, our house is a disaster, but I have a headache and I just don't want to. I think I'm going to curl up on the couch with my cat and watch some TV. Yup, that's my plan.

  • My bedroom window is covered. I can't see out of it.  The direction that our house is facing gets all the drift. We now have about 3 feet in front of our door. :(  This morning I spent an hour and a half shoveling out so that I could get food and movies to keep us occupied today (no Netflix. :() But now, we are in. I might try to make some sugar cookies later. This blows. :(

  • I've been in the hospital since Thursday for pre-e symptoms, so I've been watching all of this play out from my room window. I had a great view of downtown Mpls until about 11:00 last night.

    I feel bad for DH, because he is shoveling and snowblowing and making a potty path for the dog. Meanwhile I'm stuck here. I told him to stay home unless I'm dying or delivering. MIL said at least I'm already here "just in case," and I guess she has a point there.

    So I've just been hanging out, watching a lot of TV, goofing off on the interwebz, reading, crocheting and sleeping. Not much else I can do.
