School was canceled today. I woke up and saw it had been canceled
and imagined that it was a winter wonderland outside. I was very
disappointed to see rain falling down in sheets instead. I am so not
used to the South canceling school "just in case." Back in the olden
days when I was in high school (in Washington State), one night it has
snow 17 inches and the school district delayed our school by only 2
hours! People were slipping and sliding cars off the roads and we still
had to go to school! So it's always weird for me to cancel school
without any proof of icy/white stuff.
But by 8am, the rain had really started to turn into freezing rain mix and was icing up the trees.
So here's my tangent: Didn't I move to the south? Isn't supposed to be warmer down here? What gives?
Also, my Dark Sky app
is worthless in Arkansas. It worked great in North Carolina. But
here, it's just a mess. There was not a point at all today when we had
"heavy snow." This is what made me think there was a winter wonderland
outside when I woke up. Dark Sky-you failed yet again.
Jaxson was sad that school was canceled and really didn't believe
me. It was only when we drove by his school while doing errands and saw
there was not one single car in the parking lot. He finally believe
that he wasn't missing out on anything at school.
Later on, the
freezing rain turning into rain and instead of worry about icy roads, I
was more concerned about hydroplaning! Some roads were completely
flooded! I'm pretty sure that our burn ban is no longer in effect.
Cause my backyard looks more like a lake and if my kids want to play on their
new swing set, they are going to have to swim to it!
