For days we watched the website looking for change. Every time we checked, we got what we were looking for. 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50%. and finally, 70%. It was practically a sure thing! We gathered around the television last night and watched as the weatherman assured us that ice was imminent. We were all giddy with excitement at the thought of an unscheduled day off from work and school. I headed off to bed knowing that I would have to get up at the normal time but would be able to go right back to my warm, comfy bed after I did the responsible thing and checked for school closings.
I slept the night through and when the alarm went off, I jumped straight out of bed instead of hitting the snooze button 3 or 4 times. I practically skipped to the back door just knowing that the porch would be covered in ice. I flipped on the light and what did I see? Nothing that I wouldn't see any other day of the year. Yeah, I'm at work.
