Wintry Mix

We're in the midst of a winter storm, in that it's been sleeting all day. The weather weenies are predicting snow tonight, and in these latitudes, that's something. I don't know if we'll get any accumulation, but it is sleeting outside right now and later tonight the bridges will freeze over. The morning drive is going to be a nightmare and those of us able to stay home will be indoors.

Luckily, the schools are closed tomorrow morning. This is a planned holiday, not a winter weather day. So, the cops on the beat in the morning won't have to worry about school buses moving around during the worst of the pre-dawn freeze. Hey! This weekend is Valentines Day, President's Day, and Mardi Gras all rolled into one weekend. Of course the schools are closed. I've got to work a ball game tomorrow night if it isn't cancelled and you can bet that I'll be on the phone tomorrow.

In the meantime, there is a big pot of beans on the stove and iced tea brewing in the coffee pot. PawPaw's going to stay home and watch the weather. Tomorrow morning might be a good time to reload some ammo, or cast some bullets, or anything that I can do in the garage.

No, I'm not going to make any global warming sarcasm. This is weather, not climate. I think the climate change folks are full of crap, but that has nothing to do with the weather.
