It’s Snowing!!!!! (News Alert: I live in Michigan)

We are getting a snowstorm with much fanfare here in Ann Arbor.  It is *quite* big–but I’m also surprised at how so many people act as though the world is ending.  Apparently when a storm comes into town you go to your local supermarket and buy enough necessities to last for ~6 months.  That’s just how we roll here in the Great Lakes, Great Times state.  I won’t lie–I went to the grocery store on Saturday like the rest of the gd town–but it was only so that I could keep to my New Years resolution to menu plan more effectively.  Luckily, I have a driver who dropped me off at the front of the store and picked me up when I was all done.  His name is Lars but in these instances, I call him Jeeves.  Either way, he keeps an air of professionalism and doesn’t interact with me much.

Here are some photos of the epic snowstorm of 2014.

With the week ahead already being off kilter due to me traveling to New York on Thursday/Friday, a snow day tomorrow on our first scheduled day back into the office was the last thing we needed.  That said, here we are.  I’m taking first shift at work in the morning assuming I can get out of the driveway and then Lars will head out for the remainder of the day.  Despite the routine breakdown, there will still be meal preparation–oh, yes!  Tonight we had tortellini and salad (my go-to easiest meal ever)–but I”m legitimately cooking with leftovers in mind for the rest of the week.

…and now its time for the season premiere of Downton Abbey (after a Chargers win earlier today!).  It doesn’t get any better.
