I know that -2 doesn't sound as bad as some are having, but for me, it is cold. Driving to work this morning the sky was blue with crystals of ice in the air. I don't mind the cold, after all, it is winter. I think it is especially pretty when the sun is out and you can see those crystals. It is snowing again, and I went out to clean the walk. It was quiet and pretty with the snow falling. I spent some time with Monkeyboy and Bean today. Monkeyboy and I went to the library while we waited for Bean to finish play practice. She is the parrot in Aladdin. When we got to the library, Monkeyboy headed for the children's section, where he went to the computer and looked up books on tornadoes. He then went to the stacks to find the books and came home with four. It amazes me to see what kids in school are doing now. They have access to so much information. Bean was doing her homework in math, sitting quietly, working. Perhaps with the snow tonight, there will be enough to go sledding this weekend. A three day weekend is coming up, and Tuesday a group of volunteers for Obama are getting together to watch the inaugeration. I am excited. I am hopeful. It should be a day to be remembered. Are you going to watch? And Tigger, I hope you get to see it all in person. Let us all know how it was.
