Snow day! Umm I mean ice day!

Today the kids have a day off school.  Freezing rain has covered the roads.  If you're careful and mindful of the ice, it's not too bad, but it seems to be getting worse.  The YMCA drop-in nursery, where I work, is also closed today.  For me to get to work isn't bad since I live within walking distance, however they have to take in consideration everyone's safety.  Of course my kids love that I don't have to go into work this morning.  Maybe I'll make cookies with them today.

One of the most dangerous side-effects of freezing rain is the weight on the ice on the power lines.  Hoping that the power stays on.  If it goes out, we'll just all bundle up under blankets and maybe I'll read to everyone.  Hmm, that actually sounds like a fun idea even if the lights stay on.

Today's BEST:  Having extra time with my children!
