Ok, for my northern friends, winter weather shuts the south down. Now, dont make fun. We are not equipped for snow and ice. We prepare more for tornadoes. So the storm system that moved through last weekend encased the city in ice. A bit more was added midweek. Temps have barely been above freezing so the thick ice hasnt been able to melt well. some days havent gotten into the teens. Trees in my neighborhood have broken under the weight, and power lines have buckled and left mamy people without power. So the kids were home all week last week. roads i dared not drive on. its better. I expected them to go back tomorrow. But ahhh one more day! Its gonna be spring break just about as soon as they get back. Lol.

I know what you mean, I'm in Texas and the ice storm just came through yesterday. No school today and it's already been cancelled for tomorrow. My child is losing it as we're never stuck inside for this long. Yesterday was terrible because we couldn't even step foot outside with it pouring down freezing rain. Today we went for a walk in our iced over neighborhood and my daughter just wanted to keep going! She didn't care how cold it was but finally, reluctantly walked home with me and that walk has at least made her mildly tolerate being inside the rest of the time.

And we're braving the storm alone, lol, as my husband has been out of town on a business trip since last Wed and doesn't get home til Thursday.

Ice sucks, live in NY and we have had a bit this winter, so no I won't make fun. A bit of snow is manageable, but ice makes everything a mess. Put sand down, but if it's freezing, It's hard to remove.

 Maggie, my yellow lab pup needed to pee at 3 this morning.. Yeah, I checked -9 out... Brrrrr... It was really dumb to look BEFORE taking her out,,, I'm dreading walking her at 9:30 ... I think it's warmed up to 6.... Brrrrrrr

not making fun at all bad weather sucks! But then when it's warm there, and still cold here, I don't wan to hear it! Lol.. My dad (NC) calls typically and says "it's warm enough for golf HERE!" Played an hour of tennis OUTSIDE." Lol!!! So he brings on the "teasing". 

I hope it warms and thaws for you!
