Working for the school, I get a Christmas break with my kids. Mine started yesterday, which gives me (including weekends) 18 days off!! My kids are at school right now, therefore getting only 16 days off. Tanner & I went to a program for Lexie's spanish class yesterday morning at 8:30, before his school, (will have that posted later), and it was all of -4* outside on the car thermometer!!! Yes, you read that right, 4* below 0! & my car always matches the radio & reader boards in town. I am not a cold weather person. I came home & curled up in a blanket & watched sappy movies.
Today I have visiting teaching at 10:30. So I got ready & took Tanner to school around 8:40 even though I'm not working. All morning it looked to be a nice morning even though they were predicting heavy snows. It had started snowing around Provo, but not here yet. Until 2 minutes before we were to leave that is!! Then it started an instant blizzard. It is only about 1 1/2 miles to the school from my house, 3 miles round trip. IT TOOK ME HALF AN HOUR!!!! And I am still going visiting teaching. I am not a snow on the roads person either! Thank goodness it is all just right here in the neighborhood.
Thank goodness Andy & Leza got home safely (at 12:16am) from their 3 day trip to Las Vegas. Yes, they were there for the famous 3 1/2 inches of snow stuck on the ground in Vegas. But Drew is in Ephriam/Manti for her roommates (from Snow) wedding today. She went down last night & is supposed to be coming home tonight. She has 4 brand new tires & lots of relatives & friends houses along the way home to stop if it is still nasty. Now I know how my mom felt when Wynn & I would take a trip in the wild Wyoming winters. Sorry mom.
Oh the weather outside is frightful....
