This just in! Two-thirds of the country is experiencing some fairly extreme weather! Who knew??

Last week we had about a foot-and-a-half of snow. This week we had a little less than an inch of ice. I’ll take multiple feet of snow over a light coating of ice any day. With that said, as long as the ice doesn’t weigh down and break tree limbs or power lines it is beautiful.

Our school district allows for three snow days before they have to start either taking away vacation days or tagging on more days to the end of the year. The first snow day is fun. The second snow day is fun. By the third time they call a snow day it’s getting old. Today is our fourth snow day.

Thankfully it’s raining now which means the ice on the roads and driveways should be gone by this afternoon and maybe, just maybe, we can go to work/school tomorrow! That would be fabulous.

    OK, it’s raining, and that does, indeed, melt the ice. Now …. how are your temperatures? I mean, if you’re as cold as most of us, that rain AND the melting ice will refreeze, but on the ground/streets!! Helloooooo? Be carefully what you woohoo for!

      The rain has stopped, the temps are close to 40 and the streets are pretty much dry. My driveway, however, is one wet mess! I feel fairly confident that as long as I can get out of the driveway tomorrow I’ll be fine. 🙂

    Yeah, this is quite ridiculous at this point . . .I hate that the phone rings at 5:30am to tell Jen that she has a delay and I have to get up and go anyways! Makes for really grumpy beans! Though this morning she made pancakes . . .she is redeemed for a bit!

      Pancakes make everything better. 🙂
