Today we had an ice event. For those of you who don’t live in St. Louis, we had sleet, freezing rain, and a snow mix. Right now all is calm, but there is more to come tonight. All of this weather means that schools were closed once again. (We have had a very active year!) Another thing that closed was the Cancer Center (that’s where I go for radiation). They will also be closed tomorrow which will mean I will have to add two more days to the end of my treatment to make up. Hopefully Thursday it will re-open so I don’t have to miss any more. Very disappointing!! Now I will have to remark my calendar to reflect the extra days.
I thought I would post some pictures for those of you who are lucky enough to not have the ice. While it is pretty, it sure does cause lots of problems! Here is what our grass looks like.
This is a picture of the chair on our back porch.
Here is a tree on our property that looks like it is bending under the weight of the ice. It’s hard to see the ice but it looks beautiful!
This is what the kid’s swingset looks like. (Are you jelous yet?)
And when you can’t play on your swingset what do you do? Of course you build a fort!
