We’re all home again today thanks to the weather. I just checked the forecast, it’s -12 degrees right now and it “feels like” -31 with the windchill. We might see a “high” above zero later this afternoon, one that will feel like -10 with the windchill of course.
I shouldn’t go anywhere today. The roads are still snow covered. The Interstate is still closed (not that I have to drive on it, but it’s obviously a mess out there if they can’t even get the Interstates cleared). It’s cold. I haven’t started my car since Saturday. But I need groceries. And the Y is open (THE Y IS OPEN). So I’m bundling up. I’m dragging a kid or two with me. And we’re venturing out in the snow and wind.
And when I get home, I’ll have a strong urge to read Laura Ingalls Wilder’s The Long, Long Winter.
