Snow Day (ish)

The weather people claimed that we would get snow over the weekend and GUESS WHAT! For once they were right. Living this close to the beach means that 9 out of every 10 snow predictions leads to disappointment. This is why I never tell Muffin about any "expected" snow. It simply doesn't do to get her hopes up.

Well, here on the 2nd of March we received a whopping 1/2 inch of snow which has lead to over 30 accidents on the roads. This is because we Southerners are complete idiots when it comes to driving in frozen precipitation. Given these kinds of conditions I am not in any mood to try and brave the roadways with my child.

Though we are on a 2-hour delay, I can not decide whether to go in to work later or just stay home for the day. Usually I would jump on any excuse to stay home from work. However, thanks to 72 hours of rain, I've been cooped up in the house with a rabid five-year-old all weekend. I think we could both use a break.

Still, it's not like I often get the opportunity to stay home very often (you know, unless I call in "sick"). What to do, what to do...

Stay home, watch junk tv (or cartoons), drink hot chocolate.
Perfect day!

I went to school in New Orleans. They would have called in the National Guard for a half inch of snow. I'm not surprised at the mess after Katrina.
