The stairs up to the "outside world." The amazing thing is it is covered from overhead, which means this is all stuff that drifted down the stairs from outside, not from above.
Emily and I ventured out for a few minutes last night. I couldn't even see the snow when I was out there so this picture was funny to me because you can't see what I'm trying to take a picture of.
This is my foot in my boots for a little representation of the depth of the snow. This is on the sidewalk outside of our apartment.
Some of my non-Illinois friends were asking me yesterday if we would be out and about in this. They were surprised to hear that we get snow-bound too. I was cracking up watching TV last night with all the closings being posted. I thought it would have been easier to post what WAS going to be open. I kept stating things like, "Oh, I guess I can't go get a massage at the spa." after something would be posted. When all was said and done here are the things I would not be able to do today--go to work (even my work shut down for today), the bank, to get my haircut, to the gym, bowling, to the mall. I mean, what am I supposed to do with my day? :) Just kidding. I am perfectly happy to sit and do nothing all day (well, now that I finally buckled down and got the paperwork I hadn't completed on Monday done). As a matter of fact, Emily and I are about to watch a movie now...
