Icy Roads

Schools cancelled





The recent ice storm was persistent. On three successive nights, a new layer of freezing rain fell. School was cancelled for three days in a row.

To be precise, during the last week before Christmas, school was held on Monday and school is planned for Friday (tomorrow). It will be a wild day with the kids super-excited for Christmas. I'm glad I won't be there.

Hey "G":
Happy New Year!
That is one of your very best! 2/3 weather changing sky, the road is such a mystery, and that pair of headlights... closing unto the icy-snowy intersection. (& your il'fingies a-freezin'?) Keep all is well, in 2009.

Hi, Kenneth. Your comment illustrates how differently people see things. To me, that photo is functional because it shows pretty well what the weather and roads were like, but beyond that, I don't see much to brag on in it. However, I appreciate your nice comments! :D I hope you and the Missus have a good New Year.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
