Well today is the 4th day the schools have been closed.
And this is why:
We had snow and THEN WE HAD FROZEN RAIN - and on top of the snow - there is about an inch of frozen rain - making it a sheet of ice. And then with cold temps and no heating - there is no way for it to melt.
This is a bus stop for the kids - there would be no way to safely have them stand there when the bus comes at 7am in the morning - pitch black.
What does unfreeze during the day - refreezes at night and in the early morning is a sheet of ice.
In most of the area - where I live - being in the foothills of the Kennesaw Mtns. - we have curves and hills everywhere.
We took a drive yesterday to physical therapy for me,
The top of this hill is my grandson's bus stop.
This is our driveway - we have a hill - almost couldn't get out!. We have nothing to shovel with (hubby's excuse as why we aren't shoveling - to heavy and icy anyway.)
Steps out of the front door!
So that is a little trip to the warm ole south! We just aren't prepared for snow and ice. I bet there won't be any school tomorrow either- teehee. Temps won't be high enough to melt anything until this weekend. Then Monday is Martin Luther King Day and the kids have off again.
Wonder when they will make all this up?

Well, we'll all try to stay warm!
