Still Sheltered

I slide the drapes and watch the flakes fall from the sky. The snow appears to be level with my window. Earlier there was a news report that many businesses, including the courthouse, were canceling service for the day. The snow storm has given me a short reprieve. I'll call and inquire about the next landlord/tenant court date. Hopefully, my unemployment check will arrive before then.
