Got a surprise call at 5:30 this morning saying school was closed for the day. I looked around for hubbie who is usually leaving for work about this time and he was coming back to bed,deciding the roads looked to bad to chance it until about 10:00.
We both needed an extra snooze today anyway.
There wasn't but a dusting around but at 24 degrees every flake that fell is still here.
D-in-love doesn't get out on the slick roads either so she waited until #1 son who works this area in his DOT sand and salt truck got to our road.
Another friend of d-in-love's from church needed a sitter for g-son's friend so I kept him also today. They both arrived about 9:00 and set right into a hard days playtime.
N's mom brought me this beautiful pot of tulips to show her appreciation when she came to pick him up.
While the boys played I had some time to watch the hungry little birds around the feeders.
They finally got brave enough to come into the back yard.
After #1 son and g-son left and hubby came in from work we hurried through all our outside duties and got inside to hunker down in the warm house. Sadly each cold night like this I think of all the homeless folks out in the cold fighting for their life to stay warm. One of the news reporters from the local TV station said today as they did their newscast they had ran across a homeless man who had wrapped himself in plastic and rolled up behind a rock pile to get out of the wind.
Hubbie and I watched a UNC/Maryland ball game tonight which UNC won and I did the weekly paperwork and payed bills between the game and Survivor.
I can still hear the wind blowing but not as hard as it was earlier,the temperature at 10:30 is 30 degrees.
Thanking God tonight for the blessing of a loving family and friends and a warm home.
Good Night and God Bless.
