I'm dragging along this morning! Ugh! And we may be treated to an ice storm Thursday-Friday. Joy! This will impact us in several ways, most importantly it might cancel our speech/debate tournament on Saturday. Several teams drive into the area for the event and travel could be quite dicey on Friday. To top that off, a second weather event might hit us Saturday evening, just in time for everyone to drive home.

I don't like ice. I especially don't like winter weather here in the mid-south where they are not equipped to deal with it at all. Well, they do have some trucks that spray the overpasses with the blue stuff that is supposed to stop the ice from forming, but it always rains first and washes it all away. So, it is in many ways, wasted effort.

When the town closes the bypass, you know it is bad. It happens at least once each winter.

The other thing is work. If they close the office, cool. If they don't and you choose not to drive in for safety reasons, you lose a day of PTO. Fine. I have saved 3 days of PTO for just such foolishness.

In other news, we are heading out to dinner with the son of the man who owns the skybox at Bama. He is in town for work. It will be good to see him. He is a hoot and a half and loves to tell stories.

Something to look forward to.  Enjoy Wednesday.
