I woke up at 3 am and have been watching TV and playing around on the computer. I even wrote a few limericks.
The time clicks down to when the kidlets wake and begin getting ready for school. The youngest is up at 7 am and the older is up at 7:30.
At 6 am the PHONE RINGS! It is right next to me and about made me jump out of the chair! Who the heck is calling US at 6 am? WHO?
Guess what? It snowed last night. No warning on the THREE hours of news we watched last evening...I wasn't watching news this morning [they tend to repeat the same stories ad nauseum, so I watch cable until GMA comes on] but still....NO warning at all last night, that maybe it would snow? Our weather people stink, especially Doug Hill. I said it Doug - you big baby - you are an awful weather guy. AWFUL!
Since all the curtains/shades are closed at night I didn't see outside to see the snow falling. Surprise!!
The phonecall was the automated school system call "Schools will be delayed one hour...." I swear I was getting ready to curse someone out for calling so early and scaring me half to death.
Bonus tho' - the kidlets get to sleep an extra hour! :D
