That's right folks ICE. It is what is right now covering the grass, trees, cars, houses, and the roads.
It took me about 1.5 hours to get home today, it usually takes me 30 min. We got out of work early, but not as early as I would have liked to. I think I asked what time can we go home more than my boss wanted to hear. Finally daycare called and said they were closing and would more than likely be closed tomorrow. That was my ticket home! Almost all of us got to go home, except poor Jess she had to be there till the courier came, why I don't know. (but I won't get into that too much, it is a touchy subject with Jess right now)
I got down to my car (after sliding all over the parking lot) only to find I had about 1/4 of an inch of ice encapsulating my car. I can tell you it honestly took me about 30 minutes to finally get the ice thin enough to get it to scrap off my car. I had called up to my co-workers to tell them about the ice, and about 4 of them came down and started their cars. The scariest part was getting the kids out of the car when we got home and getting them into the house. I took very small steps, as the driveway was a complete sheet of ice.
So all said and done we are all home, except for my poor Dad who had to take the kiddos home on the school bus. He probably won't be home for another hour my mother estimates. Wait he is home..mom called Dad is home safe and sound!
Hopefully this time the power stays on, my parents has already gone out once.
Tomorrow we will all be snuggled down inside (yep.....already told work I would NOT be there tomorrow). Jay's work is on lock down sue to the roads so we get a treat of having him home tomorrow too!
