I really hate snow

When I said I'd go to the gym today, I thought the snow would have stopped by today. But nope, it's still going strong.

I tried to dig my car out, and go out anyway. But that was unsuccessful, and I think I ruined my car to boot. I'm not happy about that.

A friend of mine is getting married today. I'm friendly with her, but I guess not close enough to get invited to the wedding. I'm invited to a "sheva brachos" later this week, so I probably just missed the cut. Anyway, a lot of people are cancelling on her today because of the weather. (Why people call a bride a few hours before her wedding to tell her this is beyond me!) So now she's upset that her wedding will be empty. I know a lot of people think a smaller wedding sounds nice, but Orthodox weddings are often big, in the range of four to five hundred people! Having so few people there - especially when the caterer, the florist, the photographer, etc. have already been paid - would really be a downer.

So she sent word today that I should come. My roommate is similarly her friend, and is in the same boat. I think it would really make her happy if we came, so we're going to make an effort to go. My car is obviously not going to make it, and my roommate's probably won't make it either. The plan at this point is to get a lift from someone who parked in a lot overnight.

So anyway, no workout today, unless you count my snow shoveling. I will be working out my mouth and gut later today at the wedding. Does that count? I didn't think so...

Did I mention that I really hate the snow!! I hope the weather for the coming week takes care of it.

Next Sunday I'm supposed to run my first trail run. Can you imagine if it was today?

Snow, snow, go away. Don't even bother to come another day!

I'm pretty sure shoveling snow counts as a workout. Should I tell you it was sunny and 80 out here in southern CA?

Awesome snow storm!

Last year here in Chicago we had TONS of snow and my husband and I refused to buy a shovel because we live in an apartment buildign and by the time the snow came and we were sans shovel all the cheap ones were gone and all that was left was robotic ones :-)

So this year we bought a shovel before they became grossly over priced AND HAVE YET TO USE IT!

The snow does look like fun.

That looks completely miserable to me! Reminds me of my days living in Indiana . . . I hate being cold and I hate the snow.

I hope your car is okay though - that would really stink if it was broken.

I'll send warm and sunny thoughts your way.

The snow was fun to play in at Central Park:)

Shoveling most definitely counts! That's actually a pretty rigorous activity.

I must admit, I don't miss the snow out here in San Francisco. I felt a little guilty calling home to my parents to hear about it... But shoveling is a total workout!
