Central Ohio is shut down. Unofficial measurements have us between 10 and 11 inches at 10:00 a.m. and it's still falling. It's totally beautiful. The trees and bushes are breathtaking. My patio is a child's dream. Unmarked snow. I'm just standing here looking out the window at it. My friend is babysitting this weekend and they are planning to build a snowman later and make snow angels. The list of closings are out on the radio and television. Two in particular made me laugh: 1)a local driving school has cancelled classes for today 2) [remember I said that central Ohio is shut down, including banks and libraries] the malls will be open at noon Of course, they are telling everyone to stay off the road, but the city buses are free to all riders today. My mom just called and told me that a city bus had turned over on the north side of town. I think I'll run right out and catch me a bus! Seriously, I haven't seen this much snow in 30 years. It's kinda fun! Gonna go make me some hot chocolate, watch the snow fall and read a book! See y'all when we dig out!
