I know some of you live where it is cold, cold, cold, and you'll probably laugh at the Mamas, but
Oh, baby, it's COLD outside!
It's 18° outside and with the little bit of wind that's blowing, it feels colder than that! The streets are slick, the schools are closed. Zteen went off to work, but he thought he was lucky--he had to be there at 5:30 a.m., so there were not many other cars on the road. He said he slid a couple of times. The highways might be better (I hope so, since PapaC is driving to work), but the residential streets are pretty icy.
People make fun of us for closing stuff when there's the "least little bit of weather." But, hey! We don't do this very often. We DON'T know how to drive on it (why would we, we almost never have to!) and there's really no need for us to learn. One day every other year or so? Hah! Just make a cup of cocoa listen to the radio, baby!
