Thursday Potpourri

Tonight’s edition of Thursday Potpourri will scan the topics of Saturday Night Live, Snow Days, Icicles, and Family.

First of all, if you didn’t catch it, SNL (Saturday Night Live) had its 40th anniversary show this past week.  In a word – hilarious.  Rolling Stones Magazine did an article ranking every single actor that ever appear as a cast member (not host) on the show.  What do you think about it?  Did they get it right?  Read it here:  ROLLING STONES RANKS SNL CAST MEMBERS

Second – I just need to take a second and scream.  AAAAAHHHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!!!!  We’ve been in the house since Sunday night.  While there have been a few brave souls venture out of our neighborhood, we have not seen them return.  Okay, that’s not true, but our road is still a solid sheet of ice.  I love my family, and I love spending time with them.  I just wish I could spend time with them like this in more than one place!  Poor Josie has cabin fever too.

This leads me to the wonders that are icicles.  We have captured a few shots of ones from our roof.  Its hard to get scale in the shot.  Trust me, they’re huge.

These are dangling over our back door.  Makes me nervous to go out..

These are dangling out the window of our bedroom:

First this giant cluster – and these are about 18 inches long:

And this one – it is at least 26 inches long, maybe more:

But oh the fun we have had, watching our neighbors, across the street and to the left, attempt to go up their driveway.  Here’s a shot of Kristen and Josie watching out the window, as they made their 50th attempt up the drive.  I am grateful they finally stopped and parked on the street like we did:

We were hoping to be able to get out tomorrow, but they’re calling for even more ice and snow!  Fortunately it is supposed to be 45 degrees and rain all day on Saturday, so hopefully it will ALL WASH AWAY!!!
