Last weekend when we had the 4 - 6 inch snowstorm Hug hinted around staying with me for the storm but ended up not doing it (she lives at an above-ground metro and didn't want to be trapped at home). This time when weathermen were talking 12 - 24 inches she flat out asked if she could and I told her no prob. She only wanted to stay until Saturday afternoon which made it completely doable.

It was a lot of fun. With the two of us it was the sweet sister time that makes my friends gag when I talk about it. We gossiped about reality shows, had junk food, talked old family stories, and watched tons of tv (The Hurt Locker on demand, plus whatever we could find one). She even suffered through a good portion of the first season of Lost. I really enjoy catching up with what's going on in her life and hearing her perspective on things. It also helps that we find a lot of the same things hil-ar-i-ous.

(Above) The Tango! fabric softener that I found at a local bodega. Hug and I were dying, that only fellow latins would use sex in this particular way, to sell laundry additives.

In between all the other things we did (face masks! family phone calls! true confessions!) we would head over to the window and exclaim over the snow.

summertime and the living is easy

The snow! The snow! The snow!

(Above) Birds at the feeder across the street. The blurriness of the photo is because of the screen of snow blowing and falling all around.
