In America the ice-storm is an event. And it is not an event which one is careless about. When it comes, the news flies from room to room in the house, there are bangings on the doors, and shoutings, "The ice-storm! the ice-storm!" and even the laziest sleepers throw off the covers and join the rush for the windows.
It doesn't look like much, but this ice storm has kept us home from work for two full days! It was a nice little surprise, but unfortunately I didn't really use the time to get much done . . . just hung out and relaxed, did a bit of organization, played with the cats, cooked some nice meals with the hubby. Not really looking forward to driving to work tomorrow either, as some of the roads are still solid sheets of ice. Hopefully it will melt soon. What a change from last Sunday! Who else has been affected by this unbelievable storm?
