There’s an ice day today.

Schools are closed all day. Some businesses and government offices are as well. Last year there was a day where nothing closed, the ice storm did actually start right during morning rush hour, and there were hundreds of accidents. So now the city is laughably gun shy. Looks pretty slippery out there to me. What do you think?


I mean, it did get chilly. Down into the 20s even. Our windows aren’t the best, so I thought these delicate little folks should take a break from the kitchen windowsill and make their way to the island for the night.

    Everything is closed here too. Because the state I live in is not equipped to handle snow; everything shuts down. I don’t mind the snow, but because we have had such a long winter, I am so ready for spring. Take care of those little plants! 🙂 ❀❀❀❀

  2. You too? Our town shut down around noon yesterday. Schools had a snow day today. I think its the third one in the past couple of weeks. Everything else opened late! It comes to a point where schools and businesses are leaning toward being too overly cautious. I took my mom to a doctors appointment early this morning and the roads were laughably fine! The snow, ice and sleet from last night melted with just a few rays of sunshine. But that’s the way it is in these parts! I often wonder how some of the folks who live here would survive up north! Great post.

      I grew up up north and chuckle each year. At least Dallas got some serious snow for their closures! I wouldn’t mind a snowman every so often.

  3. That makes me chuckle – we have to have a few inches of freezing rain and at least 20 cm of snow to call it a “storm”!! Hang in there!

      Isn’t it funny? We had to have 3 inches on the valley floor for schools to delay. But my mom would keep us home if the buses wouldn’t come up the hill for us. Her point being if they didn’t think it safe to come up, she didn’t think it safe to go down. We got a few extra snow days that way!

  4. Good idea to bring the seedlings away from the window.. we even have that problem in the glass house and john covers them InSIDE the glasshouse when they are by the window.. glad you enjoyed your day off.. c

      I saw someone using the little plastic greenhouse racks inside their greenhouse and thought it was pretty clever. My first “greenhouse” (new this year) is just one of the racks with a clear plastic zipper cover on it. The thermometer inside doesn’t vary much from the outdoor temp…but at least they’re safe from the wind!

  5. Did a quick google to see what 20°F would be here in Australia -6°, we don’t experience those temps here, keep warm 🙂
