I mentioned yesterday that we had ice and snow. However, conditions have worsened today. Two days ago the inclement weather began with snow, before changing to freezing rain. After more than 24 hours of icing, this morning the snow began again and continued until mid-afternoon. Public schools have been closed all week and are canceled again tomorrow. The university has been out for two days, but I can’t imagine that we won’t have classes in the morning. I can anticipate not having to go to school tomorrow, if tree branches are still falling at UK or sidewalk ice has not been cleared. I would love to stay home again, as then I won’t have to work again for the rest of the week. At least we, unlike many across our state, have electricity. My brother and sister-in-law and S’s father and sister, Laura, are all without power. In fact, Laura and her shitzu Grace are staying at our house tonight to both have light and avoid hypothermia.
Besides drama regarding the inclement weather, there’s still not much excitement in our lives. S’s offer letter did not arrive yesterday and didn’t come again today. In the mean time we’re continuing to clean out our junk room for Rachel. And actually we have made some headway in that endeavor–finally. I had begun to fear the junk would be piled in there for another decade at the very least.
At any rate, I should finish this, so I can visit with Laura. This is the first time she has ever spent the night with us, and we won’t be here much over the next year to spend time with her. Certainly, we’re excited about our upcoming adventure, but it will be sad to be away from our families.
