I woke up this morning to this scene in my front yard:
It looks lovely enough, until you realize that the white stuff is a thin layer of snow covered by a VERY thick layer of ice! If you look carefully, you’ll see that the branches of the trees are all covered with ice – pretty to look at, but dangerous to drive in.
So the kids all have the day off from school today (and I went back to bed under my nice, warm electric blanket!). Which means that both Valentine parties are re-scheduled for tomorrow.
It looks like a day off for me too - and I think I might actually get a chance to play in my craft room later today…
