about a dream: That winter that just won't end continues...

That winter that just won't end continues...

Yesterday we had a 2 hour delay, and it should have been a snow day.

It's the middle of March! It wouldn't be such a big deal if this were a snowstorm that marked winter's last attempt to take control of the weather, but it wasn't. It was one more snowstorm after 15 others, with almost no break in the cold.

It's better today. Sunny and 28 degrees, which is about 25 degrees warmer than it was when I woke up this morning but still 15 degrees below normal for this time of year. Yay.

The extended forecast isn't much better, either. Saturday should be nice, but Sunday and Monday are back to the twenties with overnight lows in the single digits. Unreal. This winter just won't quit. Someone's going to have to dig it up and drive a stake through its heart.

Today was a teacher in-service day for me and a day off for the girls at least, so that was nice for them. Last night we stayed up late and watched The Adams Family. Nina loved it. When the opening credits rolled and she saw Angelica Houston's name, she jumped for joy. She's got to be the youngest Angelica Houston fan in the country. (Angelica Houston played the grand high witch in The Witches, and she's been her biggest fan ever since).

Not much to report beyond that. I think we'll have another family game of Skip-Bo tonight, cross your fingers that no blood is shed.
