We're home early from school. All the area schools dimissed the students early because of the "impending ice storm" (as the radio put it). I spent an hour an a half in the office answering the phone as frantic parents called. We had to call the parent of every child at school so we knew for sure where they were supposed to go at 1:30 when school let out. Fun stuff. The good news is that we handled it pretty well and at 1:45 (15 minutes after dismissing) we only had 1 stray child left. Not bad! I quickly went to vote and then came home.
Now we're in our warm, cozy house listening to the ice hit the windows...and waiting to see what lovely Ohio weather will come our way next. Of course, I had to venture outside and try to take a couple photos of the ice. There are teeny ice pellets every where! The first photo is my attempt at a close up of the little ice pellets on our sidewalk. The second photo shows our sidewalk - everything "white" on the sidewalk is ice. I think we'll stay home for the night.
