Gosh, it's cold here. The snow arrived mid-day yesterday. It snowed on and off. Over 30 accidents were reported yesterday. This morning, they were talking about a 15 car-pile-up as well as a 27 car-pile-up by the airport. We only had a bit over half an inch of snow!!!!!
No school open today... quite crazy. When I grew up in Berlin, school was going on, regardless of the weather condition. Quite the days to make up for the girls as we had several days off last year due to the crazy rain we've received. So the girls are at home today. They are warning of the ice still present on secondary streets (that would include the way out of my subdivision...great!!) What to do today??? All plans are out the window... Lewis is finally done with his Kindle. For days now he was glued to that thing as he was reading "The Dome" by Steven King. No matter where we went, that thing was his loyal companion. Today is a snow day and he finished "kindling" last night. Oh nooooo, what to do?? Since we can't do what we should be doing today, he is suggesting to go out to the movies. We shall toss ourselves out into the crazy world of nervous (not to say "dumb") drivers. I hate to say it, but the drivers I am most afraid of are women, old men with hats and Asians. Now get those people into half an inch of snow and all hell shall break loose. Jenny suggested the movie with Heath Ledger and Johnny Depp (I guess there is no need to explain why that movie was chosen) "The Imaginarum of Dr. Parnassis".
How about you?
