Woke up yesterday to a winter wonderland outside my door. About an inch of ice outside covered by a 1/2 inch of snow. The trees were iced over and my car looked like an ice cube. I woke up with my guns ready. I told myself I was going to finish baking cookies, dh was going to put the christmas tree up with the boys, and then we were going to write out the rest of our christmas cards. 10:20am while watching "Shrek the third" with Gage the lights start flickering and then go out. Great the electric is out and stayed that way until 3pm. When the electric came back on dh was going to call and have a pizza delivered but our phone wasn't working. From the electric going out the phones were down. They didn't start working again until after 5pm. I managed to get some oatmeal raisin cookies baked while I started dinner. We managed to get the tree up and that was about it. So after the boys went to bed dh and I started putting the lights on the tree. Not a big success because the lights kept flickering and twice the lights went back out for a few minutes before turning back on. We decided that it was best just to call it a night and go to bed. So at 9pm. we were in bed so ready for that day to be over with.
Today brings more freezing rain, cold temps, and my car is completely iced over. I don't have plans to go anywhere today except I have to drive near 30 minutes to school tonight for my last day of finals. Yes, I have to drive to school in this icey winter wonderland. I was hoping they would have cancelled classes today due to the ice and freezing temps but no. Wish me luck I make it in one peice.
