Snow Day Foiled!

All that snow and ice (by Georgia standards) and no snow day for me. This morning, I watched the local news scroll through the list of closings twice, then got up to check online. All the local schools--closed, all the local universities and colleges--closed. State government--open. What!!???!!! I had to de-ice two inches of frozen snow and ice from Xena the truck (good thing I had my Michigan ice scraper), I slipped on the ice in my driveway, and got stuck in some dreadful parking lot--I mean traffic--on the way to work. Grrrrrrrr..... and yet another reason to be mad at the governor! I hope Becky, Kristie, and Brenda enjoyed their snow day and got lots of sewing done.

So sorry that you didn't get a day off. We haven't had a snow day in six or seven years. It was enjoyable. Yes, I did get some sewing time. More on my blog about that!

Glad that Xena was dependable and came to your rescue.

So sorry to hear that...no fun at all. Our bridges were all frozen over and too scary to make that commute today, but back to reality tomorrow.

I am pimping a great fabric give away on my blog...Moda fabrics!!

I had to go to work too. And about 11 AM a state surveyor came in on a complaint. I should have stayed home because the home office in So C was closed and our computer system would not work!

Gretchen, I'm sorry you didn't get a snow day, was that Fulton County? I didn't see them listed on the Magic List.

Oh BOO! I was so sure you were going to get to stay home!

Your yard looks lovely. Way up here in Forsyth County all we got was a bunch of slush and then icy patches Monday morning. My kids had to go to school, even though, I saw two ice related accidents in the 5 miles I drive them.

I can't believe your schools were all closed and you still had to try to navigate that!
