Winter Storm ’09 Sunday, Feb 1 2009 

Kentucky experienced a harsh winter storm this past week. Thankfully, we never lost our power as so many others did. I had 4 days off school, and Jeff had no classes and a reduced work schedule — it felt like a mini winter vacation!

Here are some photos I took on a walk — thanks to Dustin for snapping the picture of us! Check out Dustin’s website for some more artistic photos of Frankfort Avenue covered in snow!

Happy Surprise Tuesday, Feb 12 2008 

Nothing warms a teacher’s heart like a forecast for snow! I wasn’t even aware of a storm warning for our area until I got to school yesterday, and now I’m at home for the day as a result of several inches of snow topped with freezing rain. Jeff’s seminary classes were canceled for the day as well, so we have an unexpected day together. When we moved here, I heard that the Louisville schools hadn’t had a system-wide closure in about 3-4 years. Needless to say, I was rather dismayed! (In Virginia, you can usually count on at least one snow day a year, if not more.) So I’m quite happy that the trend was broken this year!

Fresh Start Saturday, Feb 9 2008 

After experiencing months of “blogger’s block” with my other blog (Dear Void), I’ve decided to make a fresh start with WordPress. And since I’m still transitioning to a new city (hence, the fleur-de-lis motif) and a new rhythm of life, a new blog seemed to be the way to go.
