Snow, Snow Go Away!

Ok, so between the 17 inches of snow in Bloomington and the 20 inches of snow in Shelbyville, I’ve seen enough snow to last me the rest of my life.

I want to go back to Los Angeles!

Ok, seriously though. I wake up Thursday morning, check my e-mail (as per usual) and notice that my Meteorologist up in my menu bar has a little snow flake next to Bloomington. I peek out my window and am unpleasantly surprised by a good seven or eight inches of snow on the ground.

Since there was a basketball game that night, I decided to go get a new white shirt and black pants since the ones I had were from my freshman year of high school and definitely showed their age. I cleaned off my truck, drove to Kohl’s, bought my pants, came home.

Tim and I went to the Women’s BBall game (because I had to) and then, immediately after that, the Men’s BBall game (which was yet another embarrassment).

After the Men’s game, I was, yet again, unpleasantly surprised by three to four inches of snow that have piled up on my truck since the beginning of the Women’s game. ::points at himself:: This guy wasn’t very happy about that. It wasn’t too bad because I got to help a guy from Evansville clean off his car before heading to Indianapolis. He wasn’t about to travel to Evansville; at that point, they already had 18 inches of snow on the ground down there.

Tim and I got back to the house and decided to journey to Blockbuster to rent a DVD, they were closed. We then decided to go to Wal-Mart (on the other side of town, mind you) and purchase a DVD, some Candy, Popcorn, Cheetos and Cheese-Its. In the time I was in Wal-Mart, it snowed enough that I had to scrape my windshield before we drove back to the house.

Let’s just say that the snow made my evening miserable.


The good thing to come out of the whole evening was that I got to see Will and DJ from Troop 119 at the Men’s game. These two guys are possibly the best camper friends that I’ve made since I started working at Ransburg, and it’s always good to see them and catch up on what’s been happening in their lives.

That’s all for now.

Tomorrow we head up to Hartford City for Christmas Eve, then to Alexandria for Christmas Day and then back here. I return to Bloomington Sunday by 4:00, since I have to work. So expect a post at the end of that adventure.

Hero of the Day – Me! Only because I cleaned my room at home, AND our living room in the basement, AND assembled a 14-in-1 game table 🙂

  1. Yes, which is unacceptable for IU Basketball. They need to fire Mike Davis and get a real coach, not just a recruiter.

  2. Yes. This is getting completely ridiculous.

    I remember freshman year, when we lost one home game the entire season.

    And news flash for the athletic department: Just because Mike Davis made it to the final four with Bobby Knight’s team doesn’t mean he can make it anywhere with his *own* team. Mike Davis… you suck!
