Canadian kids all wait for the joy of snow days. Those are days that schools are closed because the snow and roads are just too bad. Canadians are a hardy bunch so it takes a lot of snow for the schools to close outright, but there are many a days that people take their own vehicles and driving skills into consideration and they keep their kids at home.
My normal routine is to get out of the house on Saturdays and try to do something worthy of a Sunday blog post. (Actually, the husband’s clan was scheduled for a weekend of fun at a hotel in the States but it was cancelled due to the weather. There would have been some fun photos there!)
I took my car and my driving skills into consideration and decided I wouldn’t be driving any where yesterday.
Often, if the roads are bad I make the hubby drive me as his car and driving skills are much more winter worthy than mine.
But, since the family trip was cancelled, he joined up with my church’s men’s ice fishing retreat. (Sitting on ice and freezing to death after a hair-raising drive to the boonies does not sound amusing to me…thank the Good Lord wives were not invited.) With him gone, my butt stays home. I’m having a snow day.
