I have never seen the Steelers play as well as they did against San Diego. Way to go, Steelers!
After much discussion, Peg, her son and I have decided to not make the trek to DC for the inauguration. In speaking with a resident of DC, to Congressman Altmire's office and various others, it was decided to not go down. The biggest obstacle was the transportation. It was leaving us further out of DC where we would have to take the metro, which everyone said is going to be very crowded. Then there would be the problem getting back to the transportation point! Tough decision, a lot of disappointment, but I think it is for the best. It is history making, but we will all get together here to watch it on TV.
A cold and blustery weekend here in Pittsburgh. Of course, they were calling for six inches of snow...I think we got....maybe two. They have a way of absolutely puttiong people in a panic for no reason.
I was looking forward to sledding. Bird makes a really neat sled track, and it is pretty fast. We have tried sleds, but the best seem to be the saucers, although they are certainly much more difficult to steer. The saucer zooms down the hill with Oscar barking with delight, me screaming at the top of my lungs and everyone laughing and having a good time.
Growing up I lived in a community where you could walk to everything. We lived on a street with a big hill, or what seemed like a big hill at the time. Sometimes they would close off the street so we could sled down the hill. They also froze over the tennis courts so one could ice skate. I didn't get ice skates till I was in high school, and only used them a few times, but that was fun also. You could walk to Bard's Dairy Store and get hot chocolate after you were done skating and sledding.
It seems to me that we had more snow back then, but I'm not sure, it could be one of those memory things. School was never delayed or called off since everyone could walk to school. People in that community took public transportation more than they drove to work, so the roads were never cleared as quickly in our community.
Well, it was a good football game tonight, and next week we play the Ravens. Even though we were well ahead, I get very nervous!
