On Friday before we left school, Mr. Reyes announced that we should watch the weather over the weekend. While the plans were that school WOULD be in session, the possibility of a cancellation was there. On Saturday, John and I went to Opelika so I could get stuff to do a WELCOME box for my intern. I had on a light-weight long-sleeve knit top and a short-sleeve sweater, and while it was cool, I wasn't miserably uncomfortable. Cue Sunday...
I got up to let the pups out fairly early, and it was COOOLLLDDD! And it stayed cold all day long! About 1:00 or so, John decided to get some stuff together and head on to the hospital because he was afraid he wouldn't be able to make it if he waited until this morning. (Even though I missed him last night, it was a good thing he did because the bridge at the dam was completely covered with ice early this morning.) After he left, the pups and I settled in and kept warm. And prayed that the power didn't go off.
When I woke up this morning, I was hoping we would have some snow, but we didn't. We did have ice, so closing schools was a good thing. The pups and I settled in again and have stayed warm. I got a couple of packs of homemade soup out of the freezer and have it simmering. I love the smell of soup on a cold winter day! I thought it would be nice to have something warm and filling for John when he gets home. I hope he does get to come home tonight! He should...most roads have opened and temps have gone above freezing.
As far as I know, we will have school tomorrow. The radar doesn't show any more precipitation coming this way, so we should be good to go. I hope so anyway since we don't have any weather days built in. grrrrr!!!
I just heard the washer buzz, so I better take care of that. Have a GREAT day and STAY WARM!
