Snow Day

When E had her 'winter' party at school before the xmas break, weatherdude noticed something on the wall of one of the classrooms. The teachers had a pool for the first official snow day of the year. I think today should be known as "we haven't had a snow day and someone needs to win the pool" Day.

It's ice on top of slightly more than an inch of snow out here. Pretty enough. I liked the half light just before dawn where there was sort of a foggy effect. The roads aren't particularly good early this morning, so it makes sense not to get the school buses out and risk an accident.

Weatherdude is recuperating (malingering) from his stomach bug or food poisoning. While I doubt it was food poisoning, I am still hopeful that E and I won't catch it, that we were careful enough. As he chose to eat a few foods not on the approved list last night, I think he's well enough to spend some time with E while I go to the gym later today.

But with a house full, so much for my first day of the new work schedule. I really enjoy my few hours alone with my thoughts Mon-Fri.
