Michael and I walked outside a little while ago, and man is it slick. Snow, then ice. Makes a nice crunch. I had on sturdy leather tennis shoes and I still felt unsteady.
We had an old tray in the garage, and I gave it to Mike to use as a makeshift sled. As he was ruefully rubbing his behind after an attempted slide down the hill, one of our neighbors walked by, and he and his wife offered the use of a real sled they have. Their kids are grown. So that was kind of them.
Alesia and Michael just left to go sledding over at the middle school with the borrowed sled. The school is walking distance from here. I hope and pray they are careful. Alesia is the voice of reason and is very traffic-savvy, but there are few cars out on neighborhood streets. So anyway, here are a few more photos.
Took this hat and scarf to Russia in 2004 when I brought Alesia home. It's so seldom cold enough to wear them here, they are in like new condition.
This is the route I'd have to take to get out of the neighborhood. Ain't happening until the road looks a LOT better...
Above, Mike hurtling down the street.
The icicles on the house are dripping. I just heard a load of snow slide off the roof. So I htink we're thawing out, but it's supposed to get very cold again tonight.
Alesia's school was already canceled again for tomorrow. Mike's school system hasn't canceled but I doubt they will go. Streets won't be clean and dry today, I don't think.
Y'all stay warm!
