These are the things that make me laugh! Yesterday I received two emails – one from the kid’s ministries at church and one from school (of course, the same gal is secretary for both!) and they cancelled Awanas due to the ‘big storm’ and also school for today. The weatherman was forcasting some big snowstorm to pass thru…. and I just had to laugh. Don’t they usually make that call in the morning if it seems like the driving will be bad? Especially in our valley. We are flanked on three sides by large mountain ranges, so the weather here is awfully hard to predict – a storm can be headed our way, then hit the air over the mountains and head off some other direction. I think the weather guys here are wrong about 80% of the time! As I expected, the whole evening went by without a flake coming down…we could have made it to Awanas without any trouble at all….oh, brother. That’s okay, Kiki is always up for time off. This morning, I have to admit, is another issue. It has been snowing since very early a.m. – not a ton of snow, but the wind is howling so it’s really driftng up in spots. Alan said the roads really aren’t bad, though, and he just has a two-wheel drive pickup, which is about the worst possible vehicle for snow, so if he can make it around, the rest of us could have! Oh, well. As you can imagine, Kiki didn’t protest at all about staying home again! I’m protesting, though…. this was my ‘day alone’ to get some stuff done, and now I have to do the teaching….on my ‘day off”, lol!! Not fair. Poor me, I know Well, I better get to it – that schoolwork isn’t going to get itself done…. I don’t think Barbie is doing my teaching for me, dang it.
