Snow Day! Snow day!... Er, uh, Ice Day! Ice Day!

It was just officially finalized. We have the day off school today because of ice. This is not as pretty as a snow day but a still it's a day off!

I was shocked and stunned when we got the 2 hour delay. Mac goes to school in the country so I wasn't surprised when his school system got the delay nor the cancellation (thank you for calling us Curley!). But for the city schools! Wowza! The weather forecast has been predicting, for the last 6 days, freezing rain and freezing fog and for the last six days, zip, zilch, nada. Then, I guess, during the night it happened: ice, ice baby!

I am so glad I went to the library last night and got a big ol' pile of books and I happened by the video store and picked up 2 DVDs which is something I rarely EVER do during the week. Daddy-O had gone to the grocery store, so we are laid in with supplies!

And now on with your regularly scheduled program...

Ice ice baby,

I'm trying very hard not to be jealous. I don't like the ice, but man do I love those days off. Here it's just rainy and cold and miserable. Supposed to be nice enough this weekend to bike, though. That would be the PEDAL bike.

Bragger- you can be jealous because when you had your day off I was jealous...haha!

And I hope you get the nice weather to ride. Here, it's supposed to be in the 40s but more rain on Saturday and then overnight drop into the low 20s-teens on Saturday night into Sunday morning. IF that's right, we'll have one hella mess here.

I can cope with the snow because sooner or later we can move about, but this ice is shite. I'm just stuck no matter what. It sucks.
