It took 56 minutes to get to work this morning...normally a 20-25 minute drive. I was 20 minutes late...but what could I do? I left early and was still late. I got stuck behind one accident and because of the terrible road conditions and the heavy snow falling, I don't think my speed ever went over 25 mph. This snow was very wet snow...great for snowmen and snow balls. This afternoon when I left the office it was very slushy. The weather people are saying the temperatures are going to drop below the freezing point tonight, so tomorrow we all may encounter black ice for our commute. Even my 4-wheel drive doesn't help on that stuff. The schools were closed again today...this is the 6th day because of the weather, so far this winter. That means they will have to make up those school days at the end of the school year in June.
We are registering for several upcoming seminars right now and I've talked to many teachers the last few days. One gal that I talked to today said her husband is also a teacher and they've been keeping busy cleaning closets, etc. In other words...they are doing their spring cleaning in January. But for working parents who have to find day care for young school age children, the whole thing is becoming a real pain. And no doubt the kids are getting bored also...I mean really, how many snow ball fights can you have ?
My precious son took me to a delayed birthday dinner tonight. He's been working long hours and then I was busy a couple other times, so tonight we were finally able to get together for dinner. It was enjoyable spending some time with him over some yummy enchiladas at a local Mexican restaurant. And I had some left overs which will be good warmed up for lunch tomorrow.
Well, that's all for now....there are dishes in the sink calling my name. They want to be washed, dried and put away.
Until next time, Linda
