All the schools are closed.
I’m going to work to drive around on the ice.
Who came up with that Postal Creed, anyway?
But……WE DIDN’T LOSE POWER!!
NOT EVEN ONCE….NOT REALLY EVEN A FLICKER OF THE LIGHTS TO MAKE ME REALLY NERVOUS!!
That makes being snowed in kind of nice.
Being snowed in did make me consider cabin fever a little, though.
Maybe we’d get used to being snowbound if we were in a real “snowbound” situation.
We weren’t really snowbound, though…we just couldn’t hop in the minivan and drive to Greenville to get something to eat and hit all the thrift stores the kids could stand.
We just couldn’t do our normal routine.
We had a bunch of television….lights to read by…a dishwasher….hot showers….
We could go outside to play and then come in and get warm.
There was nothing all that hard about the situation.
And…we still were going a little bit stir crazy being cooped up by the weather.
What would it be like if we were really in a situation that kept us “down on the farm” for months at a time?
I guess that we’d get used to it.
I guess that these little kids would get used to it, too.
That’s really what it comes down to….keeping the little guys occupied.
They did like playing in the snow.
That was pretty fun.
It’s a good snow….now, a good ice….and I’m going to work.
It will be interesting to report if Jenny can go out again in the MINIVAN when I get back home.
Why’s a mailman gotta slip and slide?
