It's a Cold One

Just to let you all know... it's cold out there today. The temperature is in the teens now and will be single digits later on. If you are smart, and live somewhere else, you can sit back with a "I told you so" look on your face. Or maybe a "I don't know what else she expects, she lives in fricken Montana" smirk.

There is a sheet of ice covering all of Billings. Three of the four buses to my kids Elementary school arrived AFTER the tardy bell. I almost rear ended another minivan on the way to school. (Luckily I did not hit it because of my fine driving skills. Or maybe driving on ice is like driving a boat and I've had lots of practice with that.)

I've decided that the only time I will venture out of my house again will be to 1) pick the kids up from school and 2) take the girls to figure skating lessons. All other errands will be done another day.

I'm just sayin' it's pretty cold out there!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, very scary. That's the thing about Montana-- now snow days from school. I think that if it's that dangerous, you should keep the kiddos home and give them all a mug of hot chocolate. As for figure skating, couldn't they just practice in the driveway? :)

Wow, that sounds GREAT! I am so glad I live in a state where October stays in the 50-70 degree range.
