I saw this picture today and it cracked me up. Sooo true!! Day 4 is coming to a close. Metro Atlanta public schools are still closed, until Tuesday (Monday is a holiday) – though I think a lot of private schools are going back tomorrow. Tomorrow the temperatures are supposed to be in the low 40’s, and hopefully the ice will melt!!
Meanwhile, I still have not left the house since Sunday. I walked down our driveway today to get the mail (yay! mail finally resumed today!) and had difficulty finding footing that wasn’t icy. It’s very scary to be slipping when you are holding a baby! I called Paul when he was on his way home and told him that I wanted him to drive me somewhere – anywhere – just to get out of the house. Because the buses are still not running, he’s been taking the car to the station every day. (Driving very slowly. He said the roads are much better, but bridges are still pretty scary.) When he got to the car after work, he noticed that the air in one of the tires was very low. We just filled up this tire a week or two ago, so he stopped at the mechanic on the way home to ask them. Turns out, our front two tires need replacing – the treads are almost gone; the mechanic suspects it’s due to the alignment. So, of course that makes going anywhere while the roads are still fairly bad with questionable tires not a good idea.
So it looks like tomorrow is going to be another homebound day, though if the ice melts enough then I might be able to walk to a store. I am going crazy at home!! And I haven’t seen anyone besides Paul and Savannah since church on Sunday!
