Let it snow!

We left work early today due to the snowstorm. Zack and I were actually outside our office building for his usual 10-minute walk when the snow started. Practically everybody at work kept looking out windows, trying to see what was going on. Of course, once the snow started, it piled up pretty quickly. We weren't sent home, but I made the executive decision to leave early. I'm not crazy. Driving in these conditions can be very tricky. At least my husband's office closed early. But where I worked? There were still people in front of their computers! Gotta admire their spunk. I only hope they get home safe and sound. It took us almost 2 hours to get home. I did some more work earlier, but now I'm just checking and rechecking my work email.

But that's it. I'm now thinking of making biko. (For those who are wondering what biko is, it's a Filipino rice dessert. You can also check out this blog post that I came across today.) Not that I've ever done that before. When I was growing up, we had a household help who can make biko. was so easy to take these things for granted while growing up. My mother-in-law can also make biko. Thankfully, she shared her recipe. I also found three other versions. What to use?
