We had a snow day yesterday. The snow was falling when we woke up and it slowly began covering our trees and sidewalks. I think we probably got about an inch total, but then the sleet began to fall. Now we have a lovely crusty crunchy pile of snow/ice mix. Mark and Liam went out this morning and shoveled the driveway and spread some de-icing chemical on it. Liam was sliding all over the place because he's not heavy enough to break through the ice. He fell a few times but was mad when they came back inside. JMU was closed yesterday but is only on a 2 hour delay today. The city has not scraped our street, so I'm not sure how bad it's going to be for Mark to drive to work. The forecast is calling for more ice/ rain so it could get really nasty as the day goes on.
Peyton has a wretched cold. I took her to the pediatrician on Monday for a flu test, which was negative, but her cold is wearing on her. She got up at 6:30am and asked if she could watch PBS. I was doing my Bible study at the time and told her to go lay down on the couch. She fell asleep and didn't get up until 9am! Now she and Liam are watching some PBS and hanging out in the playroom together. It will most likely be a slack day of TV watching, coloring, resting, reading books, etc. My library books are due today, but Mark is going to return them because I don't want to haul the kids out in the weather.
