Day 2 of The Lockdown

No school again today. I was smarter this time, though. I got up at 5 am, checked the school information channel, saw that school was out again, and went back to bed. I didn't wake anyone else up. Do you know what the high is predicted to be today? 50 degrees. Are you sure we are still in Alaska? Is this really January? Crazy weather! Anyway, the thaw continues. This will be our second day of bombing here at the house. Bombing, you ask? Yes. Our roofs are made of metal here. As the weather warms, the foot deep snow and ice on the roof starts to slide down and over the edge. Huge frozen slabs hit the ground with a booming sound. The floor actually shakes. The sound is really impressive when it falls onto the metal garage roof. You definitely don't want to walk around there too close to the house. One big chunk almost took out a neighbor on his back patio last year. Definitely dangerous stuff. I am thinking of making a break for freedom. There are only so many viewings of recorded NCIS and games of Wii Star Wars that I can take.

This is crazy!!! We are freezing here. Is 15 degrees and falling. Tomorrow even colder. Cleveland closed schools today due to frigid temps. They are even colder than we are and you are having Spring. What is up with that?? Ok, just had to vent. I am so missing Florida right now!! White sandy clear water....Ahhhhh!
