A small snow squall delayed my kids going to school today, but I still had to go at the regular time. Roads weren't really treated, I assume the thought was to keep the snow to act as traction over any ice underneath until the plow trucks could get out and salt/sand. While temps warmed up later this afternoon, they were just skirting 32 degrees, so I anticipate black ice tonight. Can't wait for the older kids to come home. Bfst and lunch was prepared from home. Mailed the electric bill off, remain irritated that even though it jumped to just over $100 last month, THIS month, it's even $20 more! WTH? could it be the flood lights that someone likes to leave on all day sometimes? those are some of the few, non cfl bulbs in this home.Sigh. I keep at it.
Came home and ran 2 loads of wash: colored in cold, now hanging to dry; towels in warm, now in the dryer. Both were super sized loads, using bargain detergent. Took the bulk of the tree down (kids kept pushing it off) but can't do the rest, so college boy is coming over in a bit to help, and to get that huge thing out of here and into the woods before the torrential rains come tomorrow.
