This weekend did not go as planned. It was supposed to be our opening weekend of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. However, starting Thursday night through Friday morning it rained and sleeted and got pretty cold for around here. Friday and Saturday it did not even get above 32 degrees and it was pretty cloudy. Our street was a solid sheet of ice until yesterday afternoon. So, most of the theaters around here were dark for safety reasons. Because, driving on ice is not like driving on snow. And around here, since the roads tend to melt down during daylight, the road crews only salt the big ol' bridges.
Frankly, I was surprised at just how quickly the freeze happened. We were out on Thursday evening at the kids theatre classes and our play was canceled that night. I thought it was unnecessary because it had just been 80 degrees the day before and it wasn't really raining or anything-it was just sort of misty. So, we head home after class ends at 7 and all was fine, UNTIL we crossed over a wee little bridge over a creek and slid a little. It was then that I changed my mind about the severity of the weather.
So, this was our weekend...
