Not allot going on around here. Just the usual homework, feeding the chickens and cows, and making feed for across the street. The biggest news is the weather. After weeks of temps below freezing, we had two weeks of low 60's. Glorious as it was, it thawed out the ground and made everything a darn, muddy mess. Then the rain started. Of course, flooded land followed, as did school closings, and delays. One of Levi's friends had to ride in a canoe to dry road with the firemen, and then get on the bus. Levi himself was on the bus for an hour and 20 minutes that day, driving around all the flooded bridges. The massive wind came right behind that. The boys told me that the power kept going off and on at school the other day. Now the biggest news is the temps are dropping again. Friday they are calling for snow mixed with sleet. Saturday the chance goes up to 80 percent. Oh yeah, I am "super" excited. Those whom know me well, know that I don't like the white stuff at home. Do you know what happens after cold, then two weeks of short sleeves, followed by white stuff? SNOT! Colds, coughing, ear infections, oh my. Can't wait.
