The forecast for St. Louis was supposed to be bad all weekend. Fortunately, it really just hit us Friday and that was it! I ended up working from home, which was a good idea, because it got icy out there. My balcony was just a sheet of ice, so I could only imagine the roads. Luckily the various news stations really prepped us for the potential ice. I was a bit sad though - one of my favorite things about a big storm / bad weather is the storm coverage on the news. I seriously can watch it all day. While we did get ice, it wasn't near as bad as I think they were anticipating, so the extreme storm coverage did not happen. I guess that is a good thing, though! After working, I did my work out and relaxed in front of the tv.
Before the ice melted - so pretty on the trees!
The temps rose enough on Saturday to melt the ice, and while we did have rain on and off the rest of the weekend, the epic ice storm did not come to fruition. I still hunkered down inside and made a big dent in my DVR. Last week was one of those busy ones, both at work and outside of work, so it was nice to just relax.
Sunday was pretty uneventful, too, with some organizing and reading. I did finally get out of the house to see a movie - Hidden Figures. I can't say enough good things about this movie. It's a must-see! I think everyone in the theater felt the same, because we had some clapping at the end. Just very powerful.
I enjoyed the extra day off with sleeping in a bit. I did that more than normal this weekend, which was both good and bad. I think I needed the sleep, but I also felt like I got a late start to the days which put me off a bit. I headed out for lunch, and then spent the rest of the day meal prepping and doing laundry...all that fun stuff. Overall it was a really low-key weekend, but sometimes that is just what is needed.
Linking up with Biana, Whitney, Ashley and Erika.
