Good Morning. Kind of dreary out there, I think it's supposed to stop raining later this AM. I have to run out for some paper. Working on my door prize, first idea didn't work out so well! I want to finish it today!

But truth be told, I would rather him leave BEFORE Christmas..since his 279 days on station brings him home faaaarrrrr too close to the 19 September cruise date we have....

in 14 years he has missed exactly ONE Christmas, so it isn't like he's never been home during the holidays. My birthday( 28 January) however, is cursed. and not just because of him being deployed. Try spending your first birthday after your Boyfriend leaves his wife and child( about 3 months earlier) to move in with you , have it be his weekend to take the kid AND have his car and the soon to be ex wife's car BOTH in the shop so everybody being stuck in a VERY small one bedroom apartment with no cable, no computer and not even a radio or stereo.

That set the standard for my birthdays over the last 14 years....

Not enough to make a losuy snowball, let alone a decent one, and classes are being canceled.. yet in March when the Ice storm hit they expected us to walk on two inch thick sheets of ice.....

Okay, well I was going to invite you to thanksgiving dinner if you don't have plans. So if hubby is gone and you want company my doors are open, very casual day, buffet style, we can pick you up. So as it gets closer you can let me know.

It is really windy out there right now, on my way home I saw several trees down. Crews were cleaning one up off of 197.

Were you at OU? I grew up in Cleveland and DH south of Bowling Green. NW Ohio gets snow, but not the Lake effect stuff I grew up with. The thing is, up there you can get 6" and it slows traffic down a little but only because they are behind the plows and salt trucks. Here it is a total shut down because even though they get snow here nearly every year they just don't have the equipment to handle it

Funny story...dh had to take a defensive driving course for work. Every time he hit the skid pad he kept the car under control. By the third time the instructor asked where he grew up that he knew how to control it so well. The fourth trip around the course the instructor grabbed the wheel as they hit the skid pad to make him slide

I'm from Southern IL they get snow and lots of ice. I'm not sure if last winter here was just a fluke or what but I was really shocked at how mild last winter was.

My BIL went to Wilmington. I lived in Dayton for a year after I graduated and they had way more ice storms than snow. I never realized how different the weather really was "down south" until I lived there.

Last year was a little more mild than most years. The first year I was here we literally had a trace of snow all year, but the next few years made up for that. You can usually count on one good storm each year.

I worked in N. VA and lived on Meade in 98-99 when we had a blizzard hit. It took me 3+ hours to get home, and I left the office early with my boss who lived in Columbia. I took him to the Greenbelt Metro to get his car and it took him 2 hours to get home from there, I was lucky and it only took me an hour.

I'm from western PA. and we always had lots of snow. I don't think school was ever canceled. They just knew how to clear the roads, at least the main ones which meant we had to walk to the bus stop no matter how deep. But that's not a problem for kids. And I agree with Mary, we're past due for a big one! First year we were in MD.,2003, we got about 3 feet. Down here I stay off the roads because of all the crazy drivers who think it's okay to travel 50 mph on ice!

I like the people who think that because they have 4WD they can drive as fast as they want on an icy road.

The twins are both all stuffy and Reganne is pretty pathetic. Unfortunately, it does nothing to Mackenzie's energy level, so instead of just being able to snuggle up on the couch and watch movies she is trying to keep up with her sister. As long as they don't get the baby sick I'll be happy.

I like your girl's names! I figure if I ever have a granddaughter, her name will be Reagan. DS's 'hero' is Ronald Reagan. He's sort of like Alex P. Keaton on Family Ties for those of you old enough to remember. He's VERY involved in our county politics.
