The word on the street
Two words for you today – THREE DEGREES. That’s the temperature in my neck of the woods today and it’s supposed to stay there for another week. Oh, and it wouldn’t be right if we weren’t also receiving MORE SNOW. We passed our annual average in the first storm, had our trash picked up for the FIRST time in three weeks yesterday, and the plows just barely showed up in our neighborhood on Wednesday to essentially level the ice. The roads are full of potholes and ruts formed from previous melting spells, and they are so treacherous to drive over that my fellow school mom commented, “It’s like you have to wear a sports bra to drive down the street!” She’s so right. I am over winter.
