1. Yes, it did finally stop snowing. Yes, they are calling for another storm on President’s Day but it’s supposed to be small, thankfully. And yes, maybe we’ll finally go back to school on Tuesday.
2. The official total for snow fall in February? 49.2 inches (as in, a little over 4 feet). The average February snowfall? 6.4 inches. Check out this cool graphic for all the stats.
3. The score after playing 1 round of Skipbo, 5 rounds of Backgammon, and 1 round of Rummikub?
(Before last night I was ahead 6 to zero but he managed to beat me two games in a row in Backgammon last night.) This is particularly unusual because I very rarely win when we play games. Our theory is that the Alaskan weather is favoring the Alaskan. And last night, it had stopped snowing and I lost. So our theory might be right!
4. Our friends are having a party tonight and we are THRILLED to get to go somewhere, and do something that doesn’t involve only our house and each other. Nik and I love each other very much but it’s nice to have interaction with other people too, you know?!
