Re: How's the weather

ARRGHHH!! I can't take anymore of this weather!!!

Before you northerners sneer at me, let me tell you I am a Yankee girl by birth. In the 40s and windy and rainy wouldn't bother me so much except for the confounding factor: children. Rug rats. Ankle biters. (Ouch!)

Today was my work day at our co-op preschool. Twenty four year olds, who have been cooped up for days on account of the rain (and what passes for cold, here). It was unbelievable. The kids are getting wired, cranky, testy, fidgety, out of control. No relief in sight, supposed to be this way for a few days more at least. I'm about to snap. Here in California, houses are small. There are no basements to order children to go to.

What I have is "rainy with a 100 percent chance of preschoolers with cabin fever."

OK. Thanks for letting me vent.

Its icy here but there is a beautiful moon tonight. Cold and clear until the weekend when we'll be back to freezing rain, or so I hear, the weatherman can have it all wrong sometimes.

Oh it can rain here, too. Always in the weekends! I remember getting cabin fever with preeschoolers. (Why does the bad weather happen when you have extra kids????)

Dire Straights etc. - LOUD - and everyone dances till YOU feel better! Friends' remedy - lock yourself into the bathroom with a glass of wine and a nice warm bath.

Any combination of the above

Re: How's the weather

Started a slow drizzle a couple of hours ago... now temperatures heading down... At 36 now, but supposed to go down to freezing by early morning...

*FINGERS CROSSED* ... snow day, snow day, snow day..... (We get "snow days" when the roads are iced over. No such things as tires with chain or sand crews where I live. )

(Maybe not as bad as preschoolers with cabin fever, but it gets tiring to be running all over town delivering kids places. A day in my pajamas by the fireplace sounds pretty ideal right about now)


ETA: It never got below freezing last night. *scowl* So not only did the kids have to get driven to school, it was drizzly and 36 when it had to happen. Boo! Hiss!

We have a 2500HD diesel pickup and they do infact run much colder and use very little fuel while idling, which is good cause we have to put a cover over the grill all winter long and plug in the block heater to get it started, then it has to run for about 20 mins before it even starts to get warm.
