My First Ice Storm Experience

I just finished shoveling my driveway for what feels like the 100th time this season. Seriously....I feel like I shovel, and then it snows again. And then I shovel again. And then it snows again.

Damn you, Winter!

My driveway is no easy shoveling task, either. Take a look -- and this is only half of it (but I refuse to shovel the other half, my other car can just stay stuck).

But winter threw me a curve ball this morning...this newest storm wasn't snow. It was ice. An ICE storm. This is my first experience with an ice storm.

Me no likey.

So I trekked out -- not to shovel snow, but ice. Oh goodie. Look at this crap!


But, in order to not to let myself get too pissed off, since I'm guessing the weather wouldn't be able to hear my bitching anyway, I started humming this song to myself and tried to appreciate the storm for what it left; because truly, the ice sparkling off the trees was amazingly beautiful. But it would have been even better if I hadn't had to shovel the shit.
Oh, and here's the best part: I don't even have a pair of snow boots, so I had to wear my cute, waterproofed, leather boots from Clark's. Don't they look smokin over my sweat pants? So hot. I can only imagine what the neighbors think of me.

No, that's not snow, boys and girls. That's all ICE.

But you know what? I don't care if I had to shovel ice. Because when I came back in, I was greeted by my sweet, baby girl...who is no longer a baby. *sniff* Today is her 5th birthday and we have some celebrating to do...

Well, it might suck but it sure is pretty :) So is your beautiful Ava! Happy Birthday Darling!!

Happy Birthday Ava!! I can't believe she's 5 either. :(
Think of the great workout you got today though, lol. No gym membership required. Also, get a pair of Uggs! They keep your feet nice and toasty.

WTF, Mother Nature? Can't we get a break here? Your pics are lovely, btw. Happy Birthday to Ava!

This morning I was growling as I went out to the car to see it turned into a very large ice sculpture. Of course, driving through Manayunk was no picnik for a morning commute either *sigh* However, it is pretty - and the pics are fabulous!

Happy birthday to your little one!

I only came here to tell you I'm really pissed that you called me a slut on my blog.

Okay, that's a lie. I love when people call me a slut. *shrugs*

I'm sorry I've been neglectful and never comment anymore and please please please forgive me because I'm not really commenting on anyone's blog anymore because I'm super important and ridiculously good looking. I mean, because I'm busy. With work. And stuff.

Whatever. I can't believe you didn't vote for me, you slut ass!

The ice is pretty but I don't envy you haven't to shovel all of that!

Happy Birthday sweet girl! She's too cute!
