Storm is HERE

Well I was woken up at 4am to be informed that yes, the kids would not have school today.  looks out window  EEhh… I don’t think they’d make it down the hill to the bus stop anyway with all that ice and freezing rain anyway.  My daughter as the school hadn’t posted it last night like 50+ other schools in our area woke me at 6am to ask about school.    I told her there would be no school so she went back to bed.  However I couldn’t, so I got up and fed the dogs and cats; and the fire needed tending.  So now here me and Silver are watching the radar, listening to the weather woman.


We are hoping the ice won’t be too bad, Silver already commented that due to the amount of it we won’t be driving any where in the next couple of days due to the ice on our van.  It should thaw on Saturday though as we are suppose to hit 50 again.  Our other concern with the ice (aside from power outage that is) is the possibility of trees/branches coming down from weight.  I know it happened in the last ice storm years ago, so it is a concern.


So now I have kids home and quote “bored” as there is “nothing to do“.  I don’t remember being so bored as a kid as I could not find something to do.  I guess it has to do with all the electronic devices out there as the kids seem to think if they aren’t gaming on something when they can’t go outside that there is “nothing” to do.  Considering how many books I “chewed” through as a kid you’d think my kids would do the same.  I’m not saying I don’t have a reader… my reader however reads only one set of books over and over again.  shugs  I don’t understand it, but I guess that just makes me old.


Well, I need to go help Silver with the breakfast we are making the kids. So, stay warm and dry everyone!


Be Well, Be Safe, and Blessed Be…
