I love snow. I really do. But a snow storm! The day before we are supposed to fly to Seattle? ARRRGGGGHHH! As Charlie Brown would yell out. All we wanted was a vacation. We haven't had one in two years. True there are worse things in life. But we get up and go to work every day. We deal with commute every day and all the craziness in our lives. We deserve to get away for a week. To enjoy all the offerings another city can provide. To go siteseeing and do cheesy touristy things. I just pray that by tomorrow at 11 or earlier ... earlier would be better this snow stops. Just until we can our plane takes off. Oh please stop snowing! Please!
