The weather forecast is calling for a major ice storm, that will come in three waves of freezing rain, and last all weekend long. Some areas to our South are already seeing sleet and freezing rain collecting on the bridges and overpasses. MODOT has asked everyone to stay off of the roads, and held several meetings with local schools and businesses last night, asking them to keep people home.
My work actually called a full-fledged, all local sites closed, Snow Day. We've had delayed start times, and even early release days due to snow or ice before; but closing for the entire day has only happened twice in the 21 and a 1/2 years that I have worked there.
And, it couldn't have been better that it happened on a Friday. Three day weekend for me, and a four day weekend for the kids.
I'm not going to lie, I needed this snow day, and this go nowhere, lazy day, weekend. I have been struggling really bad this past week. The Winter Blues have taken a death grip hold on me since the New Year, and this past week hasn't exactly helped much.
I feel like I'm so off my game that I'm tripping over my own shadow at every turn. I feel so lonely, that I don't even want to have to spend time with myself. Every time I reach out for a lifeline, I'm simply banished back to my hole in the basement.
Maybe I can use these days to catch up on some much needed rest and sleep. Finally clear some of the shows off of my DVR and get it back down under 50% full capacity. Find some time to sneak in a snuggle with Karen, or possibly something more.
I shouldn't get ahead of myself. Just take the snow day for what it is, and go back to bed for now.
