Things here still haven't returned to normal since Friday's snowstorm. Yes, we can travel the main roads, but it's still tricky. School was canceled today and is also slated to stay closed tomorrow. My older son called to say that classes at his college have been nixed for the rest of the week. On top of all of this, we're bracing for another foot of snow tomorrow into Wednesday. Imagine the joy on my face! *snark*
As I was at Wal-Mart this evening, I grabbed the last two loaves of white bread on the shelves before running into my mother. She had just gotten off of a four-hour stretch of running a register up front. Telling her that school was canceled for tomorrow, she said that there is yet ANOTHER storm system that's being watched by forecasters and could hit over the weekend. My heart sank.
While being snowed in has its advantages (I might finally be able to catch up on things!), I honestly don't look forward to another storm. Travel this winter has been treacherous at best, and I worry about my kids' education. They need to go to school!!!!
Thankfully, we haven't lost our electricity like many in this area of the country. Should that be the catalyst to send me over the edge, I have no problem going to a hotel with the kids. The hubby can rough it since he thinks there's nothing to it.
My advice to anyone who may be anticipating this storm would be to PLEASE stay in if you can. If you absolutely can't get around traveling, take your time and be safe. My prayers are with you.
