Tuesday?

It's still a tad on the cool side this morning but it's supposed to warm up to nearly 50F today. This is good news to me cause I don't have to be at work until noon and won't have to brave the coldest part of the day.

Most of the thin layer of ice and sleet melted off the roads Sunday afternoon so these brave southern souls were back to their normal driving speeds quite soon afterwards. Apparently this wasn't a bright idea for those driving just a few miles south of here since they had a little random freezing rain on Sunday night. James said he was driving normally on dry highway and noticed the road ahead looked a little wet so he slowed down. What looked wet was actually ice and that little fact gave the rest of his drive a demolition derby aspect. There were trucks and cars off in the ditches and fields everywhere.

I haven't even braved to venture out onto my front porch since Friday evening because my luck isn't the best when it's dry so I didn't want to push it.

That's about covers my 3 day weekend except for the fact that I took a buncha naps.
Have a great week everyone!

Staying indoors when it's like that sounds the best thing to me! Have a great week too.

We call that Black Ice, and we have a lot of it in the winter. Studded tires work great!! ( No Brenda, not THAT kinda Stud!)

Add me to the list of 'nap lovers'. I especially love the one's I take while wrapped up in my favorite blankie, after dozing off reading my favorite book. Yep, love them lazy, cozy days.

Glad you got to rest a little. I am sure you needed it. Yep, I am not too sure footed when it is ideal conditions, so when there is ice or snow, it's best for me to stay in the house!

Don't worry Brenda. We'll be sweating our "you know whats" off before you know it.

LOL you believe in luck? I never had any so I don't. Get out and enjoy the world - so what if you fall on your rear end.
