I'm starting to feel like I'm trapped in the Overlook Hotel

As you may recall, when last we saw our plucky heroine, she was battling the elements with only a snow shovel and what was left of her wits after two feet of snow fell, then a tree, fell, and then the furnace died. Virtuous Miss Elizabeth thought all would be well once the furnace was replaced. Her patience was sorely tested when her husband left town for a conference. But did she kill any of her children? NO she did not! Good, brave Miss Elizabeth!

She truly thought all would be well at last - the heat was on, the children not murdered or even throttled, and the husband home from his travels. But Miss Elizabeth faces yet another trial: six more @#$%ing inches of SNOW!!!!!!!

Let's just hope our heroine doesn't REDRUM anyone.

Girl I done wished you warm weather...what's up with that?

Not throtteling children deserves a merit badge!

Happy Valentines Day.

We're looking at 3 to 5 inches today. This winter is approaching levels of insanity unseen in these parts in a long time.

Your weather sounds horrifying! I hope you have an early spring. Hide the knives in any event...

What a litany of horrors! You poor things. How awful! Can I return the favour and say "this too shall pass"? It will.

Does this mean that K will assume the Shelley Duvall role? It's been a while since I saw The Shining and all I remembered is that she sure knows how to shriek!

Will you be muttering ominously, "Heeeere's LIZZY!"?

Thinking of you!

Miss Elizabeth - may we call her Lizzie? - is indeed a Saint. And her forbearance in the face of adversity is the envy of all who know her. This hotel you're thinking of checking into does it have free wifi????

And my magic word is: chelin.. which is sort of like chillin' if you say it with a southern drawl.

I guess this is a bad time to bring up the weather in southern california.

Good lord!

Hold tight.

I'd make a run to the nearest fast food place and buy a bunch of crap and take it back for everyone..that will surely cheer you all up.
