Christmas (and New Year's Eve) 2009

That's my car. The white one. In the snowdrift. Several more hours (and inches) of snow followed this picture.

It took me a couple of days and the strong back of a neighbor's son who helped push the stuck car, but I got it dug out Monday night. Actually drove it to work Tuesday morning. Intersections are so piled with snow that seeing oncoming or entering traffic is tricky. The city works director says it will take four to five snowless weeks to get the streets cleared to their full width.

25.1" of snow. Crazy.

When is spring going to arrive? I've gotten my federal tax forms. I've been getting emails from Burpee. (BTW: Their new zinnias - Jazzy Mix - look great. Yellows. Reds. Bright colors. NOT WHITE!)

But. With all my whining. It is gorgeous. There was a sun dog this afternoon as I drove to Target to get ingredients for my new invention: home made pizza! I haven't gotten the whole recipe figured out, but so far: fresh mozzarella, fennel seed, artichoke hearts, spinach, and garlic naan as the pizza bread. So far so good! Oh. And black eye peas. Gotta have black eye peas for New Year's Day!

Happy New Year!

Rabbit, rabbit!
